Funny 80s Mullet Wigs


Jason Donovan Mullet Wig
Jason Donovan Mullet Wig
If you're planning on dressing up for an 80s party or festival then a wig is essential for creating a fun look. If you want to get people around you laughing then a mullet wig is almost guaranteed to do the job!

The most popular 80s wig that is sold through my website (simplyeighties.com) is the first one featured here. I've labelled it as a Jason Donovan wig because it reminds me very much of the hair style that he adopted when he played Scott Robinson in the Aussie soap Neighbours - how I miss coming home from from a hard day at work and putting my feet up on the sofa to watch the latest episode.

This isn't the cheapest wig option, but it's certainly one of the better quality ones and has, so far, been highly rated by customers.



Amazon has a particularly good range of mullet wigs, so it's well worth giving them a visit.

Another site where leading suppliers are selling wigs at very competitive prices is ebay. These are brand new, "buy it now" items, and you'll find it hard to beat the prices on here.

Unisex Blonde 80s Rocker Wig
Unisex Blonde Rocker  Wig
This is the best rated wig by customers and is receiving very positive feedback and ratings. The quality defies the low price. It's not a true mullet, but the wig is perfect for creating an 80s look.
Spiky Mullet Wig

This spiky mullet wig very much resembles the look of 80s pop stars such as Limahl from Kajagoogoo. It could also be used for punk dress-up. Again, the price is very reasonable.

Mullet Wig with Headband
Mullet Wig with Headband (3 styles)
This sporty mullet by Mullet On The Go (with headband) is sold by a number of suppliers at Amazon and is available in three styles. It's good value at under £10 and ideal for creating a fun workout look.

Blonde Mullet Wig for Men
Low-Cost Blonde Mullet Wig
This very blonde mullet wig was less than £8 as I write (this is subject to change, of course) and is produced by Wicked Costumes is great value with very positive customer reviews.


Awesome Mullet Wig by California Costumes

Some of the most amazing costumes are produced by California Costumes and, thankfully, they also supply some fantastic-looking mullet wigs, too. You're not going to get a lot of change out of £20, but if you really want to look the part then one of their fine-looking mullets will get you noticed.

80s Rock Star Mullet Wig
80s Rock Star Mullet
If you want to look like an 80s rock star then this wig is for you. It looks very much like the hair style that Daryl Hall (from Hall and Oates) wore. It's the ultimate mullet style and perfect for wearing with a leather motorcycle jacket. Leather fringe jackets (with tassels) were all the rage back in the day, but they're very hard to find these days.

Faux Leather Biker Vest T-shirt
Faux Leather Vest Tee

You could create a fun biker/rock look using this fantastic T-shirt which looks like a leather biker vest over a T-shirt. This is an excellent idea and a great way to create a rock style without spending a fortune on a real leather vest or jacket.

Smiffy's Mega Mullet Blonde Wig

New Romantic Mullet Wig
Duran Duran/New Romantic Wig

Finally, the wig has a new romantic feel and is getting plenty of good feedback.

Versatile 80s Party Stickers

If you're about to host a 1980s-themed party or event of some kind, then one of the most cost-effective ways to brighten up the decor is with the use of 80s stickers. It's surprising just how effective and versatile they can be, and yet, very few people actually realise that you can buy stickers with an eighties theme.

You could use stickers to create your own party invites, seal envelopes, add to party bags, decorate bottles and jars, or simply stick to a door or wall. You can also use them to personalise your laptop, phone etc, or maybe your kids/grandkids would like one or two for their skateboard or scooter.

You can dind a pretty huge range of 80s themed stickers at Redbubble. This is a site I use often, and which supports independent artists, which means that some designs are unique to the site.


80s Fashion Sticker Book
80s Fashion Sticker Book
I just had to share with you this 80s Fashion sticker book I found at Amazon.co.uk, which allows you to dress your own models in a variety of 80s outfits. This would be a fun way to introduce your kids/grandkids to the unique world of 80s fashion!

You can also buy the book at Amazon.com.


Big roll of awesome 80s stickers
This bumper roll of mixed 80s stickers is the best I've seen in terms of value. You get 10 feet of stickers featuring 18 different designs. The designs are cute and cartoony, and probably best suited to females.

Unfortunately, this roll of stickers is no longer available at Amazon.co.uk.

The Back to the Future parody sticker by Cafepress is a nice size and would be ideal for placing near the entrance to your party. This one is not available in the U.S. - sorry! However, you may like this alternative Save the Clock Tower Sticker

I Love 80s Square Sticker
I Love 80s Sticker by Cafepress (US)

This funky 80s graphic sticker is available in two sizes with a clear or white background. Sadly, it's not available in the UK and the seller does not ship to the UK.

You'll find an interesting variety of 80s Stickers at ebay, which you can buy now without bidding. There are also original stickers from the decade which have never been used, although I doubt they would still actually stick! They would give an authentic look, though, and you could always use a Pritt Stick.

Some of the best sticker designs I've seen are available at Zazzle, and many are exclusive to the store.

Here are a few of the designs I found to give you an idea of what's available. You can buy the following items in rolls of 20. The links are to the UK store, but I have added links to the US store underneath each item.

Corey Tiger is one of the best designers around and produces a wide range of unique and amazing 80s designs. I highly recommend you view them all (there are currently 248 of them) using the following links;

Another store that sells a massive and unique range of 80s stickers is Redbubble. The only downside is that stickers are priced individually, which makes them a tad expensive. However, if you want a mixed selection of high quality, exclusive designs - there are over 13,000 of them - then this is the place to go to. Just about every 80s theme is covered including gaming, films, cartoons, toys, technology and more.

Please note that you may need to change the country and currency options at Redbubble. £pounds, $dollars and Euros are available.


1987 Mixtape Sticker

Stickers for each year of the 80s are also available at Redbubble, and these would be very useful for birthday parties.

With so many stickers available at the site, you will find it easier to narrow down your search further such as Pac-Man or Back To The Future.

Create a Blues Brothers 80s Movie Costume

The Blues Brothers - John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd

The Blues Brothers film is very memorable for a number of reasons, and it had everything a decent 80s movie should have; Two well-known actors (John Belushi and Dan Akyroyd), mouth-watering chase sequences, amusing dialogue and infectious music with lots of appearances by big name singers including Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Ray Charles and John Lee Hooker, to name but a few.

For a movie or 80s-themed party, or maybe a stag/bachelor night, a Blues Brother's theme is a great idea, and it can also be a low-cost option if you dress-up wisely. The most essential part of the look is a Fedora/Trilby hat, black tie and Ray-ban wayfarer shades. Don't worry, though, as you don't need to spend a fortune on original items.



Blues Brothers Fedora and Wayfarer Glasses Kit
Blues Brothers Fedora and Wayfarers Costume Kit

The versatile costume kit above includes a fedora style hat and Wayfarer style shades and can be bought very cheaply at Amazon - this is cheap option for group dress-up. The kit can also be used to create a 2 Tone/Ska or gangster look, too. Kits can also be bought with a black tie.

Blue Brothers Costume Kits at Amazon UK

Total Blues Sunglasses and Hat Set
Total Blues Hat and Glasses Set
This hat and glasses set by TrendyFashion was a very low price at Amazon UK, although the price is subject to change, of course.

Buying separate items

A whole range of black Fedora/Trilby hats and replica Ray-Ban Wayfarers are available at very low prices on Amazon.

To complete your look you'll need a black suit, a white shirt and a black skinny tie. In the summer months you won't really need the jacket, and if you have some black jeans then you can wear these instead. However, if you really do want the complete look, hen you'll need a black suit.

Official Blues Brothers Suit Costume by Smiffys (UK Only)
The official Blues Brothers costume includes a jacket and trousers and features a Blue Brothers inscription on the chest of the jacket. The costume does not include the accessories, so you'll need to order the kit above to complete your look. With the suit and accessories together you'll have little change from £35, and you'll need two, of course.

A far better option is to actually buy a proper suit. If you're in the UK then Asda or Matalan is the place to go for a cheap suit. A search for black suits at Amazon came up with some excellent offers, with a couple of suits available for under £30, so it's worth checking out the offers. Of course, you can then use the suit for other occasions afterward.
