When it came to the music scene of the 1980s, rock 'n' roll exploded with the rise of legendary bands that embodied a variety of rock sub-genres such as heavy metal and glam metal. Bands such as Mötley Crüe, Bon Jovi and Poison helped set the iconic hair trends of the time. While the 70s had ushered in a growing trend of long hairstyles for men, it was the rock bands of the 80s that made Big Hair or long teased and tousled hairdos popular. For rockstars such as Tommy Lee and David Lee Roth, their essentials included a quality blowdryer, hair gel and hairspray. The Big Hair of the era was achieved with damp hair, gel and an upwards blow dry followed by hairspray for hold.
