This is what happens when you ask the hair stylist for a “Dorothy Hamill.”

I don’t get the Windbreakers.
I asked for the DH cut when I was in elementary school in the Eighties because I wanted my hair to do that twirly flow-thing. Instead I ended up looking like the Fifth Beatle and was mistaken for a boy. A lot.
Seriously… I actually think this is such a cute picture. Those little girls are so cute with those haircuts. I should look through my pictures, I probably have some that look like this that I think are so cute.
I would looove to be a fly on the wall in 30 or 40 years to see what people would say about pictures of you all in haircuts that you think are super cool today.
I feel for these girls- my mother FORCED the Dorothy Hamill on me too! I would still kick her ass if I ever saw her on the street…..for years and years of “the Dorothy Hamill” I wonder how many girls hate her for the same reason!!!
When I lived in England, I had a co-worker who had just moved there and was totally shocked they didn’t know how to give her daughter a “dorothy-do” over there. In 2002.
This should be called the Oddball!
my kingdom for a pair of skates…………
a good picture.
My sisters both had this haircut and the windsuits. I managed not to, because I wanted long hair and my dad backed me up.
I think the most awkward part is the random blonde child….I wonder what color hair the milk man has…
Lmao win! I swear I was thinking that!
Remember the Flobee hair-cutting system?
This photo is the essence of the 90’s.
hahaha the first day i saw this at your house on the dresser i knew it had a place on this website
poor little justine they are all right you stick out like a sore thumb in this photo! you look like they found you outside of sears photobooth and they said hey! she has a windbreaker and haircut like us lets use her!
i love this
OMG- I had this cut as a child. The hairdresser tried to tell me that I would not look like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, but for some reason I did not believe her and I ended up with a strange mushroom cut ( I have very fine hair that lays flat). I was very upset. =(
I love Jackie and her windbreaker and dorothy hamill hair!
This reminds me of many, many early 90’s church directory portraits.
This picture brought to you and paid for by “SuperCuts” 1982
Dad looks like he wondering how he got caught in Dante’s third circle of Hamill.
Narrator: Inwardly, Dad was jealous his “Dorothy Hamill” would not hold its shape.
That’s what I was thinking, “This picture would be 10 times more awesome if dad had the same haircut.”
the Hair!!… how about the wind suits!!!
OMG it’s Georges W Bush in the middle
before he got on alcohol and stuff
Whoa- my thoughts exactly!
We know who wears the track pants in this family!
OMG, I so wanted a Dorothy Hamill when I was 8! I ended up with a pixie cut instead and was devastated for days.
Why, why are they wearing windbreakers in what should be a nice family portrait? It looks so junky. Especially with dad in a random plaid shirt! At least if they ALL matched that would be something!
Cute picture – captures an era of Dorthy Hamill cuts perfectly!
