Jessica Biel is, like, totally '80s with her new curly hair

Did Jessica Biel just time travel?

The actress, 35, posted a photo of her latest hairstyle on Instagram, and it throws back to the ‘80s in all the best ways.

Hair's to you! Happy birthday to the spectacular @johneshaya.

“Hair’s to you!” Biel captioned the photo, also taking a moment to wish her designer friend John Eshaya a happy birthday.

With her voluminous, teased curls, the actress seems to be paying tribute to Jennifer Beals’ legendary perm from "Flashdance" — and we’re also getting some serious “Pretty Woman” and “When Harry Met Sally” vibes.

Biel added even more drama to the retro look with a bold red lip and heavily lined eyes.

We’re not sure whether this ‘80s glam hair is for fun, a role, or here to stay — but we are definitely fans. Huge curls and feathery bangs might not work for everyone, but they frame Biel’s face perfectly and bring out her striking cheekbones.

Biel has had curly hair before, but not quite like this. Back in 1999, she wore her natural-looking waves in a shoulder-length lob on the red carpet to the Kids' Choice Awards.

She then went for a hint of '60s mod, showing off blunt bangs and pin-straight strands at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards.
