That old bad hair, it ain't what it used to be

Days of yore...

I thought I'd post some pics from a time long, long ago- the elders refer to it as the 80's. It was a scary, wondrous time where youths experimented wildly with absurd clothing and hairstyles- with odd and sometimes frightening results.

I don't recognize this girl.

I think the hair was gold then. Miracle it didn't fall out. The boy was not a BF, just a friend. Though I do have the dubious honor of messing around with both him & his cuter younger brother. What a slut.

Yes, the female youth of the 80's loved leather and miniskirts. All of my skirts were short then. This is actually a granny skirt compared to what I usually wore.

Again with the short hair....thank god I got over this phase. Amazing I still had cute boyfriends & got laid, looking like an angry lesbian and all.

A little later- holy shit there's a lot of hair there, and some if it looks like it could be permed, but I'm not sure & would never admit to it if I were.

And, why oh why had we not learned to properly shape our eyebrows here? I look I have muppet brows.

This is the fucking creme' de la creme' of bad hair. I'd like to say I was smoking crack then, but no, I was probably just whacked out on vivarin.

I am cuter than the picture would suggest.

Waffle fares slightly better- but man that's some tall hair. I do believe we were the main reason Aqua Net hairspray made any money at all in the 80's. I like to think that the coating of hairspray permanently attached to my lungs will give me superpowers someday.

And you can't see it in the pic, but we're wearing matching (her blue, me black) REALLY short shiny spandex dresses that we bought at Stuart's and hid from our moms. Hot. Sexy. Bitches.

As soon as I get a scanner I'll let you see my prom pics- ruffles, bad makeup, bad dates and all.

Big hair... nothing more than big hair
Trying to forget, the shit that I once wore
And fishnets... whoa, whoa, whoa spandex
Whoa, whoa, whoa leather
Of the shit that I once wore...*

*Sung to the tune of "Feelings"

Actually I think your hair in the last photo is downright gorgeous compared to your friend's. Now that's some volume!
