    LOL…Omg…this is just how my hair use to look! Had to love the 80s!!!

  2. Wayne says:

    Whats weird is looking through these pics and seeing someone you reconized from school. That’s exactly how I remembered you. The 90’s were awesome!

  3. jim says:

    Soooo Hot!!! I too graduated in 90 and I have a crush on this pic!

  4. Danielle says:

    OH MY GOSH!! THAT’S ME!! I had submitted this picture like 2 years ago when Awkward Family photos was doing the hot tub time machine movie! Funny it has resurfaced again. Yall I LOVED my big hair!! It was so awesome!! The sad thing is that this picture was my senior picture 1990. I can remember the days of being scared of rain because my hair would wilt and be a hot sticky mess!! Now that it is 2012, I have a straight hair & a new modern look lol!! I keep saying before I’m 40 I will have big hair one more time!!!!

  5. Chris says:

    I don’t care what you all say, that hair is GORGEOUS! Twenty years from now all you women are going to wonder why you tried so hard in the 00s and 10s to make your hair lie flat when there was so much more you could have done with it. 80s HAIR FOREVER!!!!!!

  6. Cindy says:

    Perfect tag line!

  7. diane says:

    “Hair to the throne”

  9. bec says:

    I had the wings, too. The back of my hairbrush was so thick with hairspray I could peel it off.

  10. Greg B says:

    ‘Twas girls like this that depleted the Ozone layer.

  11. ana says:

    lol!!! I HAD THE WINGS TOO

  12. Lance Corporal says:

    Sigh, the 80’s were just more fun. Everyone seemed to get along better and everyone seemed more optimistic.

    I’d love to have a time machine right now…

  13. RedcPed says:

    I’ll take Queen Amidala thank you.

  14. Karen says:

    This is a shining example of how we ALL wanted our hair to look, back in the day. I never did quite accomplish this tour-de-force, but I did actually have that sweater.

    • K8 says:

      I would’ve gone to school naked if I could have had hair like this in the 80s. I could just pull off a Molly Ringwald on a good day.

    • Carol says:

      No. No it’s not. I would have killed someone who tried to do this to my hair. That look was never, ever cool. We would have laughed for days at that in the 80s.

      • EvilPenguin says:

        Well, Carol, you must have lived somewhere quite different from many of us. I don’t know anyone who would have laughed at that hairstyle in the early to mid-80’s in NYC. It’s not today’s style, but she was spot on for that era.

  15. DS says:

    The 80’s were such a carefree time. Really kind of miss that day and age.

  16. Carol says:

    You can actually see particles of Aquanet sparkling like a halo above her head. I think that stuff was radioactive.

  17. corinne says:

    I know EXACTLY how she did that.

  18. Simon says:

    Do I look silly Mom? No, sweetie, you look great

  19. Kootie says:

    ahhh, the 80’s were so cring worthy…

  20. Cpt. Haddock says:


  21. Cierra says:

    The good news is, she’s a very beautiful gal, so hopefully here in 2012, she has a much more updated look!

  22. Ruth says:

    Oh no. Now I’m having flashbacks! I can just imagine the parachute pants. Creepy feeling go away now.

  23. Snowrider says:

    I’m trying to envision the hypergolic reaction that probably occured when the Aquanet combined with the 10-0-6 lotion and the Loves Baby Soft Mist. POOOOOOOF!

  24. Kat says:

    Ah yes, as a graduate of 1986, I remember this hair well. I, too, would have killed to have hair like this. This is the product of a good spiral perm and lots of aqua net, note the Princess Diana Cover girl cobalt blue eyeliner, the shaker style sweater, I would put this at mid to late 80’s.

    • justme says:

      Ooooh yeah, me too. Perfect!! I never went quite that big on the sides but I also did not like my hair to touch my temples…..ever. Aaaaah, those were the days. Did you use a lighter to soften up your eyeliner too? Or at least to try looking cool…..

    • Mel says:

      Kat, I love how you just critiqued her like an item on Antiques Roadshow. 🙂

  25. sally says:

    I used to have 80’s hair, too. Her “wings” on the side of her head could allow her to fly away and leave her problems behind…..

  26. Senateur Dupont says:

    The “Electric Cocker Spaniel Hairdo”

  27. Carol says:

    I always refered to this hair style as the “Cocker Spaniel”

  28. Gina says:

    You know she got tons of compliments back in the day.

  29. laura says:

    I can’t see them, but I *know* she has on acid washed jeans.

  30. I had those same bangs when I was about 8ish… the side wings not so much, but the long, half crimped ‘mermaid hair’… yep! We even had clear face shields to prevent the hairspray from getting on our faces.

  31. Kristi says:

    She looks like Robin Sparkes.

  32. Jeremy says:

    I was like “What’s wrong with that?” then I remembered the 80’s were a while back.

  33. Care says:

    I was fairly young ( 10?11? ) when this hairstyle was in, but I woulda killed for hair this good then lol!

    • HeatherW says:

      Aw man, I remember spending HOURS trying to force this look to happen for my limp, stick straight hair. A salute to the “satellite dish” and “wings” !

  34. Biribi says:

    In the 50’s girls had poodle skirts; now in the 80’s the rage was poodle hair.

  35. Jill says:

    I remember if I had hair like this I thought it was a “good” hair day.

  36. Christie says:

    That’s a whole lotta Aqua Net.

  37. teri says:

    The ‘pouf’ on top, the sprayed out sides, the frizzy perm! Best 80’s hair ever!

    • MT says:

      Wow, I haven’t thought about the spray or gel to push out the sides (and how they’d get flaky if you brushed them) in a very long time!

      • Junebug says:

        I remember spraying a liberal amount of hairspray on the sides and using a blow dryer to make them stand up like that. After a few hours gravity would always win.
