I’m surprised there isn’t a swarm of bees in that picture.
Love the matching pantsuits! I’m a child of the 70’s too and my mom used to make matching pantsuits and coolots (sp?) for me and herself. I thought we were COOL!
look ! look ! she even tried to do it to the baby!
My mother in law had that hair. We called it her PHD “Pentecostal Hair Do”. She said the higher the hair, the closer to God.
i love it! i was a teenager in the ’80s when the big mall hair was in style….you know, with the wall of bangs lacquered into place at a 90 degree angle to the floor. also, i am from texas. i have a lifetime full of big hair memories but the PHD term takes the cake.
There are actually girls at my school that do something similar now. Usually I end up sitting right behind them and can’t see the chalkboard.
Emma… Most likely, they THINK they are trendy. Most likely they will see their picture (maybe on this site!) in years to come & think… what the HECK was I doing? Until then, hang in there!
Imagine the hairspray and toilet paper it took to maintain those do from day to day. Also makes me wonder whatever happened to my mothers wiglet. Wonder if someday I’m going to find it packed away somewhere.
At least the dad doesn’t have big hair!
Ain’t nothing like fake hair from the 70’s!
It wasn’t fake hair, it was basket curls, and it took forever to get them done! Lol
Oh, and the girls are wearing such wonderful pantsuits. I would have been stoked to be rocking those as well!!! Very cool 🙂
I thought the same thing. I looked at those spectacular outfits and remembered something similar I wore in the late 60s-early 70s and it made my heart soar. Pure awesomeness.
Wow, I wish my mom had been into having such glorious hair!! I had to beg her to let me have long hair when I was 3! (My best friend had long, beautiful, blonde hair) I had a “cap cut” or what is now known as a Pixie. Yeah, no thanks!!!
NurseKat, don’t feel bad. My mother had my hair cut off when I was about three (1968). It stayed short til I was in high school. Even though some of the styles were feminine, I still felt like a boy because until the 80’s none of the girls I went to school with had short hair. Back then it was considered edgy for females to have their hair shorter than their shoulders.
I’d bet the mom is/was a hairdresser.
I gotta know …. did the girls grow up to be Hairdressers?
