The '80s are having a moment — as evidenced by the recent Debbie Gibson — Tiffany Reunion Tour. Also making a comeback: crimped hair (with a softer touch this time), as seen at Costume National and Viktor & Rolf.

GET THE LOOK: Break out the crimper if you kept one from back in the day. If not, crib the styling trick used backstage at Oscar de la Renta: Zigzag one-inch sections of hair around U-shaped bobby pins, then set the wave by clamping down on it with a flatiron. Brush out to lighter-than-air perfection.
