Female Teen Stars of the '80s: Then and Now

Despite the big hair, excessive amount of blue eyeshadow, and bedazzled jean jackets, these female teen stars managed to look cool even in the sometimes tragic-styling of the '80s. From the nostalgic high school films that were easily some of the best movies of the 1980s to the synth-laden pop numbers, these ladies of the eighties stood the test of time. Some had careers spanning well into the '90s while others burned bright and fast before settling into the quieter life.

They all made their mark on the decade as mere teenagers, and we are thankful for all of the hair-teasing they endured to do so. Read on to find out where your favorite teen star from the '80s is up to nowadays, and bask in the warm nostalgic glow of their iconic roles, films, and songs.
