sharyn, this one's for you.

(trying to help you with number 41 on that list of yours. i'm cool like that. hehee.)

ONE of the BEST Christmas presents ever, was circa late 1980's. i can't quite remember what year, although, i'm guessing i was in middle school......those tween years. and i can't find the exact photographic evidence---though i know it exsists. but lucky for you, i was quite obsessed for more than just a year....more like three years. so i do have supporting photos.

wow. rambling much this morning?

anywho.
the present: an ENTIRE CASE full of Aqua Net hairspray.
from: Aunt Brenda & Uncle Terry
Photobucket

yeah, i wasn't so nice to the environment for a few years or so. and since i know that this post is nothing without proof of why a case of Aqua Net hairspray was a pretty darn good present. so, i present to you the reason why i was so giddy over such a gift............

are you laughing now?

gotta scoot. i have grocery shopping to do, and presents to wrap and photos to resize and children to snuggle.........

  2. ROFLOL!!!! Ok, at least you don't have the chicken bangs!!!! That is what I was really waiting for. Now in middle school for me it was the weinier rolls down the side followed by the big as you can get feathered look. Yep, none of them was really very good, but they both took their fair amount of aqua net as well so I understand the excitement! LOL!!!

  3. Oh my, I would've loved Aqua Net one upon a time, too. I have photo evidence, but it's buried deep in the photo boxes for safe keeping. Ha.

  4. Love the hair! I had the same do back in the day. I can't believe how I tortured my hair with perms, hot rollers, and TONS of spray. My favorite was called Flex Net....I can still smell it!

  13. I had the big hair too! Often just the claw (bangs) if I was too lazy to do the rest of the 'do!

  14. Aqua net!! I lOVED that stuff!! And my hair looked pretty much the same as yours :-) If you go to Old Navy you can get a whiff of the eighties again...some of the clothes are starting to look frighteningly familiar!!!

  15. Tania you look like me in High school. I too loved aqua net and my curly hair could get really big if needed. Thanks for the memory jog.

  16. Oh how I always wanted that hair. lol

    Mine was so straight and fine that I couldn't do anything with it without aquanet. I might as well have had plastic hair like a cartoon character. lol

  17. Love the hair... but thank heavens we moved on (well, most of us) from the hair styles and the bad T-shirts (or maybe that was just me).. Can't believe the year is over..

  19. Ah, the 80's...too bad we can't erase the photographic evidence! I guess that would require destroying some old negatives, right? I was very much loving my permed hair piled high w/ spray.
    And you never know...after all, leggings are back - what's back next, huge shoulder pads? ;)
    TFS, Tania!

  22. I can't help but wonder if we are getting ready to repeat the 80's. I've been noticing young boys/men growing their hair longer. Our kids will one day ask...What was with the shaved heads? Love your pic. I bet your socks matched your outfit. LOL

  28. I'm just getting caught up on your blog a little...yes, I laughed a tiny bit at your big hair. I was a big-hair girl, too. :) But I would have been green-eyed at your very, very big hair!
