We were all reminiscing about our big 80s hair today at dinner. It was fun with everyone gesticulating about how wide/tall their hair used to be. A LOT of hairspray back in those days. It seemed like everyone had a good "big hair" story. I remember a guy we met in a club in the late 80s and said he could tell which brand hairspray we used just by smelling. Sounds pervy, but he got all 5 of us right. (3 of us were Aqua Net, no surprise there...). two of us knew of a girl whose hair caught on fire from all the hairspray. I remember everyone (teachers included) wanting to touch my hair. It was impressive because it wouldn't move, even in a tornado. Plus my bangs were about 6" high...
Man, those were fun times! Anyone else have a "big hair" story?
I had big hair too but it wasn't because of hair spray!! I have naturally curly hair and I used a diffuser to get it big. I didn't have big bangs, though, I don't think. I will have to check it out now!!
My big hair saved me in a car wreck! I flipped my car and rolled it (5 times). The windows were busted out & my hair was full of glass. The hospital said that hairspray & big hair prevented the glass from getting down to my scalp and cutting me. By this time I was a Rave girl, the HUGE can!
