In this family, you go bald. You’re out.

I believe this family alone is responsible for the holes in the ozone.
Looks like the sisters in “The Fighter.” ‘Nuff said!
OMgosh I went to school with one of these girls! And I remeber their hair! Go Canyon…
The poor only boy. Did he ever get time in the bathroom?!!
Al Gore calls this family Patient Zero. They are resposible for 20% of the CFCs from 1983-1985
Is the photo scratched, or is that just a mass of static lint emanating from those jumpers?
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…
WHOAAAAAA! we’re halfway there!!!!!!
WHOA OHHH! Livin’ on a prayer!
You know what they say – the higher the hair, the closer to god!
Wonder how often their shower drain gets clogged…
OMG…back in the day I would have given my left arm to have cool hair like that!! LOL!!
Go big, or go home.
…. 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….
HA! Excellent caption, well-served my friend. 🙂
I hope there was a plumber in that family. Think of the clogged drains. Draino and Aqua Net.
I love this pic! Totally 80’s.
I’ll bet the sweaters they are wearing are made of human hair – theirs!
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. 🙂
Nope. They will think they are awkward.
Jersey shore reruns in thirty years?? I don’t think it’s memorable enough to have reruns…
My hair hurts from just looking at this.
This is sooo classic 80s! I love that the dad’s hair is almost as big!
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.
Don’t Stop! Believin’! Hold onto that Spraaaay Can!
These women are STUNNING. Of course, I grew up in the 80s, so my tastes might be slightly skewed, but DAMN.
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.
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.
THIS is why we have global warming!?!
Nah, it is because they faked the data so that Al Gore could pretend that he is important.
Right, cause how awful would it be for all of us to treat the earth with respect….
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.”
wow !! A couple of cross bows and it will be perfect.
miniaature cross bows hidden behind the HAIR!
Poor guy…..four sisters with huge hair…..I bet he never had any bathroom time!!
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?
did you see the kate gosselin wigs at halloween in 2009? long in the front and short in the back.
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.
Wow! That’s a lot of hair!!
nobody has hair like that for real.
I’ll show you my 1987 senior yearbook. I guarantee you that’s all real hair.
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 : )
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).
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.
Taylor Dayne and her family.
If this was shot last week, it’d be awkward. But as a reminder of the 80s it is awesome!
What really makes this picture is the girl with the spray on tan.
This was the 80s. There’s nothing “spray on” about it, friend.
Wait a second – isn’t this a group photo of White Lion, or White Snake, or one of those other “white” meat bands?
Yes, it’s White Fish, they’re totally kosher lol
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?
“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.
if that is the mom….she sure looks amazing for having had all these kids and dad looks a bit older than she does.
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
Don’t forget Vincent from the 80’s TV show, Beauty and the Beast!
80’s lingo…love it!
The upper left blonde… that still rocks. I love it. So much better than the flat hair that is going on today.
I wonder how many cans of hairspray get used in that house each day.
Do NOT, I repeat, Do NOT light a match near this family!!!!
I think the porn stache is totally rad….
(in heavily accented photographer voice) “You are a lion! A fiercesome lion. Shake you’re mighty mane!”
…(while muttering under his breath): “Am going to need wide angle lens to get all this hair.”
Big hair or not, those are some very attractive young ladies.
Wow. I hope they bought stock in AquaNet!
Oh. My. Gawd. Did we really have hair like that??? And no one told us how trashy we looked?????
If by trashy you mean “hot”, then I agree!
I can’t wait for ladies to start doing this style again. These girls are a bit extreme as a whole… but nothing wrong with big hair.
I bet they owned stock in Aqua-Net.
Don’t you recognize Dr. Net and his lovely wife, Aqua? Where do you think the name for the product came from?
The family that sprays together stays together.
my favorite comment 🙂
Every year they get a Christmas card from Aquanet
That’s exactly what I was thinking!
Awkward bucking reindeer sweater. Honestly, I like this hair style much better than the backwards mullet many women sport today.
I don’t think I have ever seen a backwards mullet.
You know, it’s long on top and shaved around the sides and back.
The Kate Goselin ‘do – HATE it! They will soooo be looking at those photos in 20 years wondering what they were thinking!
Kate Gosselin a few years back had one. Horrific.
yeah the backwards mullet is long in the front and the back is short and spikey looking… or all laying flat. Whoever told a woman that haircut was attractive had a cruel sense of humour.
That is a LOT of Rave hairspray in the turquoise can!!!
I was so saddened when they reformulated their hairspray. It just wasn’t the same.
The residual cloud left after they prepared for this photo is probably still floating around out in space somewhere! COUGH!
Please, PLEASE don’t light a match!!!
