Yeah, that's clearly 80s hair. Yes, similar looks are found in African/African-American hair culture (the chronological next step after the 70s Afro), but, you can tell that's aqua net becuase there's no waves that eminate from the scalp - it's just individual curling strands from a central mass.
Also! look how each of those strands frays out at the end - those are hairs that got less of the product.
Oh man, it's like I'm back in Elementary school. So cute.
