There’s Something About Lottie

“When I was in 6th grade, my two older sisters were popular and had big hair, and I was an awkward kid so I thought I’d be cool for a day. I went to town on the Aquanet hairspray. I used almost half a can to get this Big Bang as tall as I could. The photographer literally had to take a step back to fit my hair in the school photo and i really don’t know how he kept a straight face. I shared this on Instagram once and couldn’t even fit it in the crop.”
