With my 15 year reunion coming up, some old friends and I were going through some old pictures from highschool. God my hair was so embarrassing! It was huge. I used SO much hairspray everyday. I teased and picked and fluffed my do and then sprayed it until it was this massive poofed out helmet! It was literally hard as a rock! I wore so much makeup....I wouldn't be seen without my trademark "neon pink" lipstick.

I'm looking forward to seeing all my old classmates, but I know everyone is gonna bring up my hair! Oh well! Can anyone explain why we did this? Why was this hairstyle so popular? Big hair has got to be the most embarrasing hairstyle in history.

Did anyone else have hair like this? Have you "lost" all of those pictures too?

I didn't do the big hair and make up thing... but only because I'm an identical twin and wanted to be as different as possible. My sister did all that. It was like a contest to see who could make their hair the biggest!

I miss the big hair! Come on, it was beautiful. I still remember the exact science of teasing my hair to the highest and fullest that gravity would allow. I seriously used three different kinds of hairspray for maximum hard-as-a-rock wind-resistant hair. Have you any idea how many times I blinded myself with a hairspray squirt gone astray? I know exactly what my fave smelled like to this day--StudioLine by Loreal. Ironically, my senior picture hair was rather tame, but I grew out my bangs for graduation in 1992. That day was the pinnacle of my big hair career. It was the biggest it had ever been in my life and never got up that big again. I have pictures; I'm still proud of that hair. Big hair lovers unite!!

Well... um... I was born in '87, so I only remember my mom having huge hair. My brother had the rat tail though. Oh that thing was ugly!
