    Actually, it’s a cute photo!

  2. Mary Lou says:

    These ladies have to be among the prettiest I’ve seen on your website, dated hairdos or not! What a great portrait!

  3. Freckles says:

    SOMEBODY’S parents failed to babyproof the house with electrical socket covers!!!

  4. tishwishes says:

    That big hair is b*tchin’!

  5. Minnie says:

    that is one good looking family..of girls

  6. Jeannie says:

    One of these ladies is a recent graduate from Beauty School. The rest are her free models she used for her final tests!

  7. Leslie C. says:

    Best. Title. EVER!

  8. lilred says:

    Holy crap! This could be my family! Five natural redheads plus one strawberry blond! Good genes in this family!

  9. Noneya says:

    One of these girls (or Mom) has to be a beautician.

  10. Daisie says:

    You have to look pretty closely, but Boy George, the family’s teacup poodle, is in this shot too.

  11. Teetsee says:

    Wow… what I wouldn’t have given to have hair like that in the 80s!

  12. happymama says:

    Oh I wish I had their cheekbones!

  13. Alan says:

    I’ll bet the family dog is a Poodle.

  14. Laurie says:

    Am I the only one that sees the aquanet, but not the perm?

    I knew a whole family that had curly hair just like that. They hated it.

  15. Mary says:

    Wowww, I have a pic of myself that looks just like that! ha ha. I have naturally curly hair. Never appreciated it until I got older.

    • magillicuddy says:

      I second that emotion !

      • Beki says:

        No kidding. I tried like crazy for YEARS to get my hair to do this. Super-spiral perms, chemicals galore, all kinds of rollers. Everything fell right out without hours, days, a week, tops. I am now so super-straight I’m finally in fashion, thank god, but I’d have killed at least two people to have this hair back in the day.

  16. Uncuw Biww says:

    Which order of nuns has this hairstyle requirement?

  17. Samantha says:

    i coughed up a hairball just looking at this pic…

  18. Amy says:

    I bet at least 3 of these sister were also cloggers, not clog the drain but the dance know as clogging.

  19. PissedChef says:

    Maybe it’s just naturally curly. Mine is and it will do that on any given day with just a hairdryer.

  20. nite owl says:

    I remember getting permed — my long hair took FIVE HOURS to complete! Just so I could have a big mane of fuzz

  21. mrs5180 says:

    good luck getting mirror time the morning of that photo shoot!!!!!

  22. I’d hate to imagine what it’s like for the guy who has to clean out the shower drain in that family.

  23. John R. says:

    I love the expression on the face of the sister to the far right. Are there any female game show hosts? She’s got a career.

  24. Andy says:

    Their hair is so big that they could hide a weapon in it.

  25. Jill says:

    I grew up with these girls! They always had big hair.

  26. corkscrew says:

    Anyone remember Spoolies?

  27. anne says:

    omg I could have been part of the sisterhood too:)

  28. Amice says:

    It’s like safety headgear–no man can come too close (she says, having looked exactly the same in her day….)

  29. PaulaSaintO says:

    Now I’m sentimental for my high school years!

  30. Tentoes says:

    Notice near the lower (half) on the right…. the sister with the straight hair was taken out of the photo.

  31. nerkls says:

    So many chemicals were released when these perms were done that two beaches had to be closed down ALL SUMMER!

  32. helenhill says:

    This is just a wonderfully cute photo!

    • ampersand says:

      I agree! These girls are beautiful! :) But yeah, that’s a lot of hair!

      • Ananas says:

        They are all beautiful. Not a dud in the bunch…you know how in some families, one or two kids get all the good genes and there’s a random homely kid…kind of like if Katie Holmes and Maggie Gyllenhaal were sisters.

  33. Rissa says:

    That’s alotta hair!!!

  34. Heather says:

    Daddy’s a plumber and mom’s a hairdresser, otherwise the perms and clogged drains alone would bankrupt that family!

  35. Mary says:

    The poor little non-blonde girl in the front (I THINK it’s a girl), her perm didn’t “take” as well as the others. Perhaps the stylist was tired.

  36. sus says:

    There seems to be a “blonde” sheep in this family. . .

  37. KJO says:

    One of these things is not like the other…. one of these things just doesn’t belong…

  38. Kathleen Mooney says:

    i wonder if they get a discount on all those perms?

  39. Rmoslen says:

    Bet the blonde little sister is hated by the rest of them, she probably gets all the special treatment from the parents.

  40. Jacqui says:

    The one on the left wins in the combined category of “height and width” and receives bonus points for actually getting the hair out past the shoulder. I agree on the jealousy thing…back in the day.

  41. Keisa says:

    It’s so funny how all of their hair is the exact same shade…except of course for the little rebel in the corner.

    • Steph says:

      Probably because they’re all naturally curly redheads! The little blonde girl’s hair will turn as she ages.

  42. durhay says:

    Ripley, Newt, Wynona, and some other friends from the upcoming Aliens 3: White Rain

  43. Who knew Quakers used so much Aquanet?

  44. The hole in the ozone layer brought to you by…. them!

  45. Sisterly love is permanent.

  46. Jamie Duncan says:

    Gotta love the 80s. The Gunny Sack dresses are a very nice addition to the volume of hair. :) I think I would have been jealous of some of these girls “hair height”.

  47. Jackie says:

    How much Aquanet was involved in this photo?

  48. Sean says:

    Global warming made a reality by one family! Thanks for your effort and for the rise in aquanet stock!

  49. Jacqui says:

    How much Aquanet do you think they went through in a month??

  50. magillicuddy says:

    Man, I definitely should have been adopted by this family — they stole MY hair !
