Ever wonder why the “wet look” was so popular in the 80s. The same decade that spawned fitness as obsession, and bulging muscles was the look to sport. Jane Fonda gear was popular, and so was the polished and shiny “just gymed” post shower look. So too was the ”just stepped out of the shower” hair.
It was also the decade where androgyny was the groundbreaking new look and “cool” and unisex fashion made an appearance for the first time. Short hair for girls and long hair for boys imprinted the look of the ‘80s for the world. Fortunately that gave all hair lengths for either gender many more options in the decades to come.
