    Turn your head upside down, put your fingers halfway into your hair, and shake for maximum volume. Then, once you turn right side up again, use A LOT of hairspray to keep it big. Do not crunch out: no movement needed!

    Have Aqua Net on hand.

    Edit: I missed that you are 3b (Oops). Then it probably doesn't have to be as complicated as what I posted.

    This is not at all hair friendly, but this was my 80's routine. (And I'll take this opportunity to apologize to my abused 80's hair.)
    Apply mousse and some gel. Scrunch and blow dry upside down (or if you want to take curl out, use a vent brush or other non 80's brush). Depending on how big you want it, either hairspray the roots at the top of your head or ratt and then hairspray the roots at the top of your head. Bend over and blow the hairspray dry. You may want to ratt and hold the bangs straight up as you blow them dry. Also you may want to hold the wings (hair just above the ears) straight out as you blow them dry.
    Curl all of your hair towards the center back (use a heat protectant). Curl the the bottom layer of the back and the bottom layer bangs under. Spraying each curl after your done was common. Brush your hair with a vent brush (or use a wide tooth comb to separate the curls). Spray with hairspray right side up. Flip you hair upside down and spray with hair spray. Flip you head repeatedly side to side. Then shake forward and backward. (possibly spray shake and repeat this a couple times) Finish by returning upright. Arranging your curls and spray once more. You may want to spray your bangs up one more time.
    Have fun!
    ETA: Sorry Ozone layer. We didn't know.

    You're a 3b? Just brush it out. That'll do it.

    CG didn't work for me. Oils don't work for me. Trying hard to learn how to love my hair. Read my blog.

    I did this last year with just finger combing it out. A brush would have been bigger. A 3b doesn't need much assistance to get 80s hair.

    The duckface was sarcastically on purpose.

    That's cute RCC :mrgreen: I agree with you too about 3b not needing much coaxing to get this big look.

    Lol, I spent much of the 80s with unintentionally large hair because everyone told me to brush it.
