Anyone a teenager of the 80s? Def Leppard, "Thriller", tapered jeans, parachute pants, Rubik's Cube, Trivial Pursuit... the fun-fun list goes on and on. One of the most ungodliest fashion disasters of the decade? Big hair. I mean, *seriously* big hair. Most girls like me who went to high school in the mid-eighties remembers standing at the mirror with a curling iron in one hand and a huge bottle of Aqua Net in the other, laboriously reaching for the sky, trying to get each tendril of hair as stiff as... well, you know.
I was on the yearbook staff in high school, and my senior year, we went to the mall to take staff pictures. My friend and I stood out in high December winds for fifteen minutes waiting for my dad to pick us up and drive us over. I was worried that my hair would be a mess. But, no-- thanks to Aqua Net, the day was saved! I used so many chemicals in my hair that not a strand was out of place. And I looked *great*.
One of my favorite sites to laugh at is Awkward Family Photos. I saw this picture this morning and was transported back to the Glorious Eighties. I do have to say... thank God my hair was never THIS high.
