Here is part 2:

A fun return to the 1980s for a look at 10 fads and trends that you might have forgotten about!

A lot of the 1980s fads were related to fashion such as hair, clothes and makeup which are profiled in this video: Ten Fads from the 1980s that you may have fondly or not so fondly remembered or maybe you’ve just mercifully forgotten them. Not to worry, we’re here to bring them back in all their neon emblazoned glory. If you weren’t around in the 1980s, get ready for some fun, bizarre, questionable and cool fads that seemed like a good idea at the time.

    "I want my MTV" didn’t hear that until 1982 but it was a commercial phrase I will never forget. Much like Where’s The Beef from 83 or 84.

    Don’t forget parachute pants! Embarrassing now but in the 80’s they were everywhere and were considered "totally rad."

    The boombox: bane of sleeping people everywhere.

    Have to love the "SPIKED MOHAWK"!



  7. Brett Hibbs on December 10, 2021 at 5:54 pm

    the 80’s were awesome I had the funnest times in my life in the 80’s I was born in 74 so I was 6 when the 80’s started. just watching this video and typing this I’m actually going back in time I really don’t remember 80 or 81 but from 82 and on I really remember things I did and places I’ve been. I was also the happiest I’ve ever been in my life during the 80’s



  8. Tiffany P on December 10, 2021 at 5:55 pm

    Leg warmers are coming back!! I had a 6 year old student of mine wearing them at school Monday! 😄👍❤



  9. 510LIFE OAKLANDER510 on December 10, 2021 at 5:56 pm

    I wonder would a kid of the 80s get along with a kid of today? Education and human communication was are different in both eras.



  10. Emily Alterio on December 10, 2021 at 5:56 pm

    MTV…..that is when REAL MUSIC was played



  11. poonhunter42 on December 10, 2021 at 5:57 pm

    I was so kool then. Not so much now.



  12. Ferd Janklow on December 10, 2021 at 5:58 pm

    On the leg warmers photo; what, exactly, is the chick in pink doing there? I don’t believe it’s her legs she’s thinking about.



  13. Sabrina Prince on December 10, 2021 at 5:59 pm

    I still have my leg warmers…lol
    And I style my hair the same way.
    Mainly because I have big hair no matter what since its wavy curly and long.
    Our hair and make up had to be just right otherwise, no way would we go out in public with bad hair and no make up..lol.
    I really get a kick when I see youtube videos on how to do your hair big like in the 80s…lol
    I’m thinking ok first we never put so much product in our hair only Aqua net maybe finesse hair gel for the bangs. OMG!! The other day I watched on youtube a young lady doing the "the 80s eye make up" and I’m thinking I never saw any of my friends or anyone in my school put liquid eyeliner using masking tape. It was bizarre to see this. She put masking tape on the outer end of the eyelid to make the fish tail straight I guess. The once she drew it on she then pulled that masking tape from the side of her eye. I’m thinking that’s the worse thing you can do to that sensitive skin around the eye. Wait until you’re 40 and up and start to see crows feet and sagging on your eyes. Oh geez! Lol…

    bleached washed double denim



  15. Chief Inspector Shine on December 10, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    We had style, MTV, and the airwaves pumped out metal, new wave, punk and more. Crazy hobbies and fads. And we were and still are unbroken by mere words. Skin thick as a coat and you gave as good as you got. Great times! 👍🏾



  16. BigAppleChick on December 10, 2021 at 6:05 pm

    I would like to share it’s me at the 9:00 minute mark. I know this reveals my age, but also reveals my wicked hair and video game prowess. This photo was from an arcade at Birch Bay, Washington. lol.



  17. Oliver Cruz Torres on December 10, 2021 at 6:05 pm

    Somebody should of paused the time in the 80s



  18. Inge Sexton on December 10, 2021 at 6:05 pm

    I mean…. Leg warmers should make a comeback!



  19. Greg Davis on December 10, 2021 at 6:05 pm

    Some of the big hair styles on women were very attractive, not for a guy at all.



  20. 🦋esse-1868🦋 on December 10, 2021 at 6:10 pm

    The last days of actual face to face friendships. You had maybe 20 good friends in real life that you would see a few times a week- not 3,796 Fakebook friends.



  21. Deena Coulter on December 10, 2021 at 6:12 pm

    Best decade ever.
    Trucks were trucks
    and girls were hot.



  22. sote ful on December 10, 2021 at 6:12 pm

    This was when you went to a concert and lifted up a lighter instead of a cell phone flashlight.



  23. Glenn Melven on December 10, 2021 at 6:15 pm

    Acid wash jeans are way better than ripped jeans we have nowasays.



  24. Curly's Read Along on December 10, 2021 at 6:15 pm

    Someone should have kicked my a$$ over my jambox



  25. Kenneth Draper on December 10, 2021 at 6:17 pm

    Ah yes, pope John Paul the second, known for his breakdancing skills.



  26. Rickey Engle on December 10, 2021 at 6:17 pm

    love to go back to the 80s,,



  27. Carlavision on December 10, 2021 at 6:19 pm

    I remember them all and especially the Rubik’s cube. I couldn’t solve it but, took it apart to put it back together but, later on finally solved it without taking it apart. Really enjoyed your video!



  28. Chillie Dog on December 10, 2021 at 6:23 pm

    Generation X were the Children of the Revolution ….



  29. A Huddleston on December 10, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    I was a kid of the 80’s. I hated the fashion of the 80’s at the time, now I just look back in nostalgia. My Walkman was my life support machine. I’d go to school with a bag full of tapes and batteries. PAC Man rescued me after a "tough" day at school.



  30. SoCalCrow on December 10, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    No one could beat me
    Hahaha



  31. Emily Alterio on December 10, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    OMG I feel old now LOLOL!! Remember all of this…..



  32. D Mc on December 10, 2021 at 6:26 pm

    I still have my Rubiks cube! I also remember going to arcades and spending who knows how much money in quarters in the arcade games lol



  33. Backyardmech1 on December 10, 2021 at 6:28 pm

    Aqua net churning ozone depleting aerosols into the environment. Later hairsprays came out with a special cap that you used to pump the bottle with.



  34. Paul Powell on December 10, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    And the second Video on MTV? fish heads with billy mummy from lost in space fame



  35. Sam Grig on December 10, 2021 at 6:30 pm

    I think Leg Warmers are one of the sexiest things.



  36. Craig Kubnick on December 10, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    Born in 1958 and still haven’t grown up yet 🙃



  37. Sycho Havoc on December 10, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    My high school senior year book is filled with girls with high hair and aqua net hair doo’s. I was a metal head with long straight hair. High school actually had a smoking lounge outside most times it was cigarettes sometimes those funny smokes…



  38. Freyafanboy90 on December 10, 2021 at 6:34 pm

    They say things go ina cycle. I mean vinyl records had a comeback and it’s high time we refound the 80’s again and hopefully it will stay. I’m not liking this new centuary.



  39. Jeanne Swift on December 10, 2021 at 6:35 pm

    Ooohhh…The ‘80’s…Big Hair, Neon Colors, leg warmers and so much more…



  40. Noah Pierce on December 10, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    Today’s kids will never know the pain of not having enough quarters to finish a game. I feel sorry for them, I really do.



  41. groove9tube on December 10, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    Stevie Nicks had the best 80s hair.



  42. cheezyridr on December 10, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    i miss the 80’s because they were the prime of my life, and i had a great time.



  43. J L on December 10, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    I remember kids bringing sheets of cardboard to school so that they could break dance at recess.



  44. Samuel Howie on December 10, 2021 at 6:42 pm

    Funny how MTV supposedly killed the radio star but the radio still plays music whereas MTV doesn’t.



  45. Renee Dollar on December 10, 2021 at 6:42 pm

    Thank you walkman for not making me listen to country music when on long trips with my family to go visit other family.



  46. jon wilson on December 10, 2021 at 6:42 pm

    GOD, i MISS the 80’s….



  47. Pico De Gallío on December 10, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    Enough said !!! …



  48. Morgan Ophelia on December 10, 2021 at 6:43 pm

  49. sote ful on December 10, 2021 at 6:44 pm

  50. D W on December 10, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    I remember the walkman, had one myself. Also had a portable stereo I got for my birthday in 1986.
