Wow, this is the final week of the “31 Days” Series which has been happening all over the blogosphere for the month of October. For the past three weeks, there’s been over 700 bloggers talking daily about topics that inspire them.
When I decided to commit to the 31 Days Series, I never imagined how much fun I’d have. But by combining two areas that I love – advertising (my ‘day’ job) and home decor – I was pretty much assured to enjoy it!
With that said, I am deliberately breaking away from vintage home decor ads for this evening because I just couldn’t resist bringing you this awesome vintage ad for ’80s hairstyles!
It wouldn’t be so hilarious if I didn’t have pictures of me in junior high with that hair on the far left, only shorter and pouffier. I do, I swear.
I cracked up reading how 80s hair is described on the site “Like Totally 80s”…
For those of us who were there, 80s hairstyles make us cringe with embarrassment. For those who weren’t, well, you can stop laughing now. What was it that caused us to wear our funky 80s hairstyles like a badge of honor? From the bangs that reached for the heavens with frizzy passion, to the extremely asymmetrical new wave social hair statement, to the funky side ponytails walking hair-in-hair with the mullets, hairstyles in the 1980s were about excess, experimentation, and enough hairspray to protect our heads when the Russians dropped the bomb.
And if you want a few more chuckles, pop over to their page of 1980s yearbook photos. It’s a scream.
So were you a crimper or a teaser…or..BOTH? (‘The teased crimp’…now that was really something!)
See you tomorrow!
