    I believe this family alone is responsible for the holes in the ozone.

  2. Lisa Brock says:

    Looks like the sisters in “The Fighter.” ‘Nuff said!

  3. Bob says:

    OMgosh I went to school with one of these girls! And I remeber their hair! Go Canyon…

  4. Petal says:

    The poor only boy. Did he ever get time in the bathroom?!!

  5. Harry says:

    Al Gore calls this family Patient Zero. They are resposible for 20% of the CFCs from 1983-1985

  6. Pipergirl says:

    Is the photo scratched, or is that just a mass of static lint emanating from those jumpers?

  7. Pipergirl says:

    How many seasons of this 80s family sitcom did they make?

    Whatever the plot, I’m pretty sure the guy with the tash lived over the garage…

  8. Sean says:

    WHOAAAAAA! we’re halfway there!!!!!!
    WHOA OHHH! Livin’ on a prayer!

  9. AndrewT says:

    You know what they say – the higher the hair, the closer to god!

  10. lizzie says:

    Wonder how often their shower drain gets clogged…

  11. M to the K says:

    OMG…back in the day I would have given my left arm to have cool hair like that!! LOL!!

  12. DDD says:

    Go big, or go home.

  13. Andi from NC says:

    …. and then there was poor Sheila. She never had the time or money for highlights or hairspray. The girls just called her “Flatty.” We didn’t have the heart to tell her she was adopted but we think she always suspected….

  14. Richard says:

    I hope there was a plumber in that family. Think of the clogged drains. Draino and Aqua Net.

  15. Sherri says:

    I love this pic! Totally 80’s.

  16. ChrisF says:

    I’ll bet the sweaters they are wearing are made of human hair – theirs!

  17. JJ says:

    Thing is, it’s actually a great photo and not awkward at all. It just happens to be locked in the style context of the 80s. We date ourselves in photos all the time and it still happens today. Women today wear that chin-length bob that rises in the back like a wedge, and men today get that ‘reverse-blowout’ or faux-hawk or what not, all of which are going to date any photos they’re in for this decade. Then we will look back someday and laugh at them for it hehe. Do you think the Jersey Shore gang will still think their haircuts rock when watching reruns in thirty years? Highly doubt it. 🙂

  18. Jenners says:

    My hair hurts from just looking at this.

  19. beckster says:

    This is sooo classic 80s! I love that the dad’s hair is almost as big!

  20. Faina says:

    Wow, the lady way over on the left has the most beautiful, health-looking, shiny, voluminous hair…! It’s like she organized everyone else around her to highlight the sheer perfection of her own hair.

    She must be some sort of time traveler with a team of hairstylists from 2041 to have fared so well in this family.

  21. David says:

    Don’t Stop! Believin’! Hold onto that Spraaaay Can!

  22. Doug says:

    These women are STUNNING. Of course, I grew up in the 80s, so my tastes might be slightly skewed, but DAMN.

  23. Anthony O'Neill says:

    Every girl in my high school in the ’80’s had hair like this. You needed an oxygen mask when you walked by the girls’ changeroom.

  24. livremaniac says:

    OK, cheesy big blond hair-dos (but I woule have KILLED for my hair to do that 25 years ago). But Mom has hair I’d kill for now.

  25. Putts says:

    THIS is why we have global warming!?!

  26. Don says:

    I’m sure the local plumber loved getting a call from this family…”Honey, the Smith’s just called. Another clogged drain. Go ahead and make those reservations for Miami Beach. And yes- you can go ahead and invite your mother to go with us. Be back in about an hour or so.”

  27. Sam says:

    wow !! A couple of cross bows and it will be perfect.

  28. Kristen says:

    Poor guy…..four sisters with huge hair…..I bet he never had any bathroom time!!

  29. Sherry says:

    OMG, I would give my last can of hairspray to see a photo of this family today…. and re other commenter, Serg, what the heck is a backwards mullet?

  30. GLC says:

    Young Dennis fights fiercely for equal time in the bathroom each morning. His aggressive efforts really pay off, showing that he is an equal match to the proud lionesses who are his sisters.

  31. Evelyn says:

    Wow! That’s a lot of hair!!

  32. Joe says:

    nobody has hair like that for real.

    • Sabra says:

      I’ll show you my 1987 senior yearbook. I guarantee you that’s all real hair.

    • backchat says:

      Um, yes, they did have hair like that. You must be too young to have witnessed such hair extremes. It was actually the norm. As for spray tans, I don’t believe those had been invented yet. Tan sis probably was still smearing straight baby oil on her skin and soaking in the 1 p.m. rays on the rooftop : )

      • Kelly says:

        Depending on which year in the 80’s this was taken, they didn’t have spray tan but there was self-tanner in 1989. Elizabeth Arden had some – it was insanely expensive at the time but it actually didn’t smell that bad (like some do today).

    • CarrieM says:

      Oh Joe, Joe, Joe. We did have hair like that. I admire the crafstmanship here. That hair wasn’t easy to accomplish, depending on how much natural hair you had.

  33. Tim S says:

    Taylor Dayne and her family.

  34. Tim S says:

    If this was shot last week, it’d be awkward. But as a reminder of the 80s it is awesome!

  35. Hobab says:

    What really makes this picture is the girl with the spray on tan.

  36. Rancid says:

    Wait a second – isn’t this a group photo of White Lion, or White Snake, or one of those other “white” meat bands?

  37. Snowrider says:

    OK, I know a woman who wears her hair like this today. Is this actually “IN”? On another note: Is one of them the mom?

    • esackman says:

      “Is one of them the mom?” The one wearing the pearls, I’d put her down as the mom, since she looks much older than the other ladies in the picture.

  38. iLOLd says:

    Influences: Simba the lion, Fabio, Bon Jovi, and oddly enough, Max H-h-h-headroom-oom-oom-oom
    Hobbies: 1) Head-banging 2) Being gnarly and righteous while not harshing another’s mellow

  39. Lynn says:

    The upper left blonde… that still rocks. I love it. So much better than the flat hair that is going on today.

  40. Misty says:

    I wonder how many cans of hairspray get used in that house each day.

  41. Perry says:

    I think the porn stache is totally rad….

  42. Wes says:

    (in heavily accented photographer voice) “You are a lion! A fiercesome lion. Shake you’re mighty mane!”

  43. Rob says:

    Big hair or not, those are some very attractive young ladies.

  44. analisatamara says:

    Wow. I hope they bought stock in AquaNet!

  45. cjgs1 says:

    Oh. My. Gawd. Did we really have hair like that??? And no one told us how trashy we looked?????

  46. Mark Hilgenberg says:

    I bet they owned stock in Aqua-Net.

    • Nicole says:

      Don’t you recognize Dr. Net and his lovely wife, Aqua? Where do you think the name for the product came from?

  47. Eric Copeland says:

    The family that sprays together stays together.

  48. Jennifer says:

    Every year they get a Christmas card from Aquanet

  49. serg says:

    Awkward bucking reindeer sweater. Honestly, I like this hair style much better than the backwards mullet many women sport today.

  50. Kathy says:

    That is a LOT of Rave hairspray in the turquoise can!!!
