Let's face it, you couldn't go anyplace in the 80s without spotting a young lady with a side ponytail. Despite the fact that they weren't adored by everybody, the individuals who loved this style wore it with great confidence. They were worn with those very loose-fitting eighties garments that made this period genuinely one of a kind. Curiously large shirts, plastic bangles and over-sizes earrings made you ultra trendy, toss in a side ponytail and you were totally 80s.
As this photo of Cyndi Lauper illustrates, there was a fine line between having a proper side ponytail and wearing your hair to one side - the latter was also a popular 80s hair style, with both men and women.
In the 1980's, big pop stars like Debbie Gibson, Madonna and Cyndi Lauper wore a side pony tail, and that implied it was alright for you to have one. These were the most sizzling stars around, and if they had a specific haircut, so did a huge number of their fans everywhere throughout the world.
