A Year in the 80’s – Hair

When I think 80’s, I instantly think big hair. Big bangs, big perms, big sweeps of hair poking out at the sides of the face like mighty wings.

I could never get the bang thing down, but I did have my share of perms. And I just loved my beautifully feathered hair when I was sixteen.

I had a rat tail at one point too, more’s the pitty. But I never did a side pony! So I’ve got that going for me.

Here are some photos of 80’s hair. Take a walk down memory lane – or maybe have a laugh at the expense of me and my fellow 80’s alumni. Either way, enjoy!
