Remember the original poof?
The bang flower, that sat like a crown upon your head, dusted with Aqua Net hairspray and immovable by wind - or any force of nature, for that matter. It could withstand dance recitals, drill team practice and riding in cars with the top down.
It could often be found alongside tuck and roll jeans, blue eyeshadow and your boyfriend's class ring.
A by-product of this creation included bathroom walls and floors covered with a layer of spray, virtually impenetrable by Soft Scrub.
My mother used to tell me it was too much, too big and too stiff. Should have listened to my mom, then I wouldn't have senior pictures like this one, still displayed publicly in my grandparents house.
Every time my husband sees this picture, he just shakes he head and says, "Whoa. Now that's some big hair."
