Big hair days



For my Flashback Friday post this week, I thought I'd post some pics of my big hair days. Forgive the quality, as they're scanned from old scrapbooks. This first pic is of me when I was 14 years old - it was my freshman in highschool pic circa 1989 (yes, I'm old) I grew up in Kentucky where the height of a girls' hair was a status symbol. There are so many things wrong with this first picture besides the hair (which looks hideous - I think I went through a bottle of hair spray a week). That sweater and turtle neck - got to go! And I wasn't smiling because I had braces. UGH. Freshman year was so akward.



I don't remember what year this was taken, although I know it must be between 1992-1993, because I'm in the back yard of of the house that we lived in during that time period. I think this might be one of the worst perms I've ever had. And those glasses . . . those glasses. What was i thinking?

I'm pretty sure this pic is from 1993, so I would have been 18 years old. I'm thinking I must have been getting my wardrobe inspiration from Madonna's Vogue era. Oh my gosh - I sure hope people weren't mocking me behind my back!

We all had big hair at some time or another. And I think you look great!

Dude! You were/are so HOT. I think you should bring back the perm. And I love those glasses. I'd love to see you in your pant-suit outfit again too.

So funny Christie! I grew up in Florida where the height of your hair was also a status symbol there - LOL!

These are so cute! And don't feel bad, I'm pretty sure that all women over the age of 20 have had big hair at some point.

At least by '93 you had let go of the big hair. I still had mine. :)

And I had a similar blazer. Except mine was a solid pring with a mini skirt. Sexy! ;)-

Print. That is supposed to say print not pring...

Classic pix! It makes me think of the 90's and Elaine's hair on Seinfeld!

I had the exact same hairdo 1990-1991. Don't feel bad. You were all the rage back then! Just don't let it happen again, hehehe.

These are great! I remember wanting my hair to look like yours in the last one. I would have been so jealous if I'd seen you then!!

Gina said...

Love the pics...you are such a hottie!! I had the big bangs and perm...and the pant suit with shoulder pads too!!

Anne Marie said...

Christie, you are soooo pretty! Even if you don't think you were when you had big hair, you really were, and you still are.

I always wanted big hair but I could never achieve it. That is worse! I'm sure I was mocked behind my back on a daily basis.

Those are great. You have always been stunning!

I know what you mean about the hair...it was always "the bigger, the better". It was fun looking back at that era. I remember it well.
