* Even in the more conservative world of Country Music, many of the top stars of the decade had 1980s-style hair; in fact, the gimmick became so prevalent that it had the ironic and even paradoxical effect of turning the mullet into a stereotypical ''symbol'' of American conservatism. Many of the female stars -- from Patty Loveless to Music/RebaMcEntire to Music/DollyParton -- had very '80s styles, and even the male singers had these; Steve Wariner, on some of his mid-to-late 1980s albums, sports very '80s styles. The members of Music/{{Alabama}} had longer hair, but by the mid 1980s, were starting to wear them in distinct 1980s styles. Notable aversions are some of the older stars, such as Music/GeorgeJones, Music/ConwayTwitty and Music/MerleHaggard, and then newbie star Music/GeorgeStrait.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'':

to:

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'':''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' is heavily inspired by 80s action movies, so is notorious for this:



** Prior to that Liquid had some wild Eighties hair that looked a lot like the Poison members in the example picture.

Added DiffLines:

** Raiden in most of his appearences has shaggy, shoulder-length white-blond (or sometimes silver) hair with a definite 80s rock-star vibe.

* Talena from ''Outlaw of Literature/{{Gor}}'' has some huge '80s hair, which the crew of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' take a couple jabs at in their commentary. This is despite being set on a whole other planet from Earth which is onstensibly in a MedievalStasis.

* ''PurpleRain'' is glutted to the gills with this, in part because so many of the characters (not least the protagonist) are Black, and are sporting Jheri curls and the like. However, ''all'' of the characters under age 30 (and some over it, too) seem to have '80s Hair, regardless of race - with a few exceptions like the [[TheQuincyPunk Mohawk-wearing "punks"]] we see in the opening montage.

* ''Series/MacGyver'': Richard Dean Anderson is one of the few men who can pull off a mullet and have it look good.

* Police Chief Jim sports a mullet in ''The 11th Hour: The sequel to VideoGame/TheSeventhGuest''. Eileen Wiley has some serious curls...you can count how many characters are from that era. Course, the whole movie was filmed in 1996.
* William Daughton from ''VideoGame/TheJourneymanProject 2: Buried In Time'' seems to have a flared '80s hairstyle, almost like Marty McFly. An option you can pick for Gage Blackwood's auto-stylist in the first game is a mullet, although it's labeled "GeoWave". However, the computer tells you that it won't fit TSA dress code, so you don't get to have it for the day.

* ''Series/SavedByTheBell'' actually had more obvious '80s hair in 1993 than in 1989. However, the [[BuffySpeak '80s-ness]] of the show is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that pop culture was largely '80s until 1992.
