A type of hard rock band from the 1980s made up of musicians who wore strange leather clothing, ripped jeans, and had tall blowdried womanly hair (often blond). These bands played hard rocking music with fast guitar solos, but also sang love ballads. Hairband music was heavy but it was produced with such a glossy sheen that it wasn't too hard on the ears. Hairbands died around 1990, and some would say they ere killed by Kurt Cobain and grunge.
Winger was a classic hairband.

In addition, it is customary to wear either extremely tight pants or similarly tight stone-washed cut-off jeans when part of a hair band.
