Livin' it Up, 90's style!
Last weekend, Josh and I attended a late 80's/early 90's dance party. Wowza. It was a lot of fun (even though I couldn't participate in the dancing so much), and I don't remember ever having hair that big.
I used a 3 barrel curling iron, an entire can (travel sized) of extra-strong-hold hairspray, and plenty of ratting to get my hair back to the 90's rocker chick look. By the time we got to the party though, my hair had flattened. I said to Josh "My hair just isn't big enough!" Then, I had a moment of silence as I realized that that was how women who lived through that era felt all the time. Never enough hairspray, never enough height to their crimped bangs. What a tragedy. Thankfully, my sister Elsie came to the rescue and brought my hair back to 90's glory.
Josh though- he really rocked the look. He wore his leather biker jacket, plaid shirt, aviators, converse sneakers and a leather half-glove. His hair stayed big all night! Not fair.
Have you ever revisited a decade that you lived through? It's funny to think that in the early 90's I was still in grade school and wearing as many neon colors as possible every day. I do remember wishing I could wear the ginormous hairdos of the day. The older women all seemed so glamorous with their gold bangles, hoop earrings, and gigantic hair... Speaking of glamour, Glamour Shots were all the rage back then. Did you ever get a Glamour Shot of yourself?
