Mirror80 concludes My Little Pony Week with music videos from two Eighties ladies with hair to rival the most elaborate of My Little Pony manes. When it came to selecting music videos with the allure and vibrancy of one of our favorite 1980s toys, we couldn’t help but “highlight” the hair of Missing Persons’ Dale Bozzio in “Destination Unknown” and Cyndi Lauper in “True Colors.”
My Little Pony Hair
Let’s start with some inspiration from the Ponies:
On the left we have Unicorn Pinwheel, whose flowing tail and candy-colored hair couldn’t help but say “Dale Bozzio” to us. Unicorn Pinwheel is available through Haoli, an Etsy shop with an amazing collection of vintage items, from clothing to paper products to toys.
On the right stands Bright Eyes, whose yellow and orange locks unavoidably channel the fiery strands of Cyndi Lauper. Bright Eyes is available through Vintage Toy Expo, an Etsy shop with an extensive collection of vintage toys, including more than 200 My Little Ponies!
Now let’s marvel at the color-rich tresses of our videos’ heroines:
Dale Bozzio and Cyndi Lauper
Top: Dale Bozzio’s hair takes center stage in a still from “Destination Unknown” by Missing Persons. Bottom: Cyndi Lauper’s back-lit hair exudes multi-hued warmth in a still from “True Colors”.
Whether the hair is cascading or piled on top of the head, its thick vibrancy “shines” in a way that’s reminiscent of magical synthetic toy pony hair (we mean this as the ultimate compliment)… See for yourself in the videos below:
Missing Persons band members never break character in their videos, and they maintain flawlessly stylish appearances throughout!
Cyndi’s hair may be the topic of this piece, but don’t forget to notice the shredded newspaper skirt she wears near the end of the video!
A Modern Update on ’80s Hairstyles
If you desire the hair of a colorful ’80s lady but don’t have the time to strategically color your mane, let Etsy shop Ponies of Doom come to the rescue with their synthetic hair attachments called cyberlox.
Mirror80 wishes you a Happy Friday! A special thanks to our Etsy friends for making this post possible, to the musicians who inspire us with their style, and of course, to the Ponies!
