    I believe in this era, Aquanet trucks actually filled tanks buried in front yards…these two probably went through a tank a week… : – O

  2. Jen says:

    WOW! I’m speechless.

  3. Peter says:

    This is either very early 80’s or from a very small town… Hair like this died around 83 or 84 in most of the rest of the world.

  4. Hugo Galletas says:

    Just too good to be true….

  5. Bryant says:

    She is clearly jealous that his hair is bigger than hers. Way to upstage your date.

  6. Lauren says:

    Napoleon Dynamite’s parents – the early years.

  7. Cindy says:

    I think they’re siblings — matching hair, she looks a little older than him, and they don’t look happy to be standing so close.

    Those were the days, my friends, we thought they’d never end…

  8. MZ says:

    Yo, Mallory!

  9. Kathy says:

    Why is his hair bigger than hers???

  11. Eric says:

    Wait a minute… That had to be my prom! I remember seeing a few of those do’s at my senior prom in 91!

  12. Rachel says:

    She looks sort of mad. I would be too if my date didn’t know what kind of flowers to get for a prom. She wanted the corsage, not the bouquet. =)

  13. missdevilred says:

    Dig that hair! That guy is rocking some severe 80’s metal Revere hair!!!

    Ok, what’s up with the boots?!

  14. sabrina says:

    Honey, now THAT is Texas hair!

  15. Teri says:

    Wow…Wow Very impressive. Are they sure the had the correct hair on? They’re identical.

  16. Marco says:

    Yes, I wish I had the cajones to pull this look off. The closest I can come to it is my moonwalker Skechers Shape-ups.

  17. Jason says:

    And somewhere a Trans Am sits, with a Ratt tape still inside its radio, waiting for its true love to reappear.

  18. Magdalena says:

    There is a hole in the o-zone with their name written on it

  19. Kathy says:

    Wow. This is so…. wow.

  20. Kim says:

    Is THAT Brett Michaels, Jon Bon Jovi, etc, etc!!!!!????

  21. Eric says:

    His hair is bigger than hers lol.

  22. Justine says:

    I had that dress too!!!! Prom, 1987! What’s with the bouquet? Please tell me it’s a school dance and not a wedding with the balloon arch and wall of shimmery tinsel…

  23. Cindy says:


  24. bub says:

    “By the look in her Eyes she was giving what she got!!!!”

  25. centavo71 says:

  28. Ree Donnelly says:

  29. Cheryl says:

    One word to describe this photo. Awesome.

  30. liz says:

    I like the matching hair!! They obviously got the same box at the store and have the same stylist….classic!!!!

  31. Heidi says:

    The higher the hair, the closer to God!!! 🙂

  32. charmy_canuck says:

    His super power isn’t wielding an axe for sceaming groupies…No it is wielding 10 cans of aquanet a comb, a brush, and a whole lot of teasing! Don’t light a match near his head…
    (I think their might be a ginger joke somewhere after that)

  33. DamitMommy says:

    What’s with the bouquet? Almost looks like a wedding lol

  34. Pattie076 says:

    He has bigger mall hair than her …lol.

  35. jjacks says:

    Dang, It’s hard to say who is the prettiest…and who spent the most time getting their hair

  36. Kelly says:

    Holy crap I HAD that dress. And my date had that tux, but with a top hat. And his name was Brian – but definitely not THIS Brian!

    My hair, however, was cleverly ‘done up’ in a braid that went… wait for it!… UP the back of my head rather than DOWN. Add the fact that I had a mullett so she teased the top and heavily sprayed down the sides with glitter spray… well, you can picture it. FABULOUS!!!

  37. Mike says:

    I bet she was pissed that his hair upstaged hers

  38. Paul says:

    She’s only seventeen…….

  39. Kyle says:

    White snake.

  40. Dan says:

    Why is she holding his bouquet!?

  41. Laur says:

    Boots? There’s boots in this picture?

  42. T-bone says:

    I would say forget the rest of the contest and give him the hot tub now, but wasn’t he already a winner on that night? That kind of humidity can’t be good for the hair either.

    • mmc says:

      Oh, I just laughed so hard at your comment!

      • Suze says:

        Win a hot tub? It better have extra hair filtering capacity. But it’s the purple balloon archway that really put this photo over the edge for me.
        Let’s score it now, hair 10, expressions 9, boots 12, balloon revenge 10
        total score 41/40 points. a winner!!!

  44. Carrie says:

  46. Susan says:

    Dude… you give love AND fashion a bad name.
