Big Hair

Last night, I was eating dinner when a rerun of "That 70's Show" came on. I totally laugh at the hair, remembering my foray into the Big Hair debacle. Then, my friend and I watched American Idol together a little later, smiling and commenting about the people who are starting to wear Big Hair again on the show.

I've been growing my hair out, mainly because I have no clue what kind of haircut I want. So it's in the annoying inbetween stage, where it really won't do much of anything. This morning, just for fun, I decided to style it similar to Big Hair in the 70's, with the whole feathered back bangs look. Ron and I have been laughing about it.

Then I'm in the kitchen, getting lunches ready, and Lu walks around the corner. "Boo! I scared you!" she says, as she heads into the family room to collect her school stuff. I waited about 5 seconds, and then started in with the "Aaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!! Aaaaaaaaahhhh!" to humor her. :) Then Ron says, "Wow. You really scared your mom-- look at what it did to her hair!"

I start giggling helplessly, while Ron just chuckles at me. As I'm giving him a hug, and we're laughing together, Lu is watching us with raised eyebrows and critical teenager eyes.

Big sigh from Lu. "And to think that I have to live with these people." Cue eyeroll.

Funny girl.

Of course, fashions go in cycles. I'm still holding onto a Nehru jacket of my Dad's, waiting for that fashion to come back :-)

Eh, it didn't stay Big for very long-- I didn't have any Aqua Net. :) So no pics this time, sorry!

There was some seriously big hair going on. I was going to say the same thing. Big Hair = Pink Can of Aqua Net. Kiss the ozone goodbye and stay away from open flame.

That 70's Show is my favorite show of all time ... even if I was just being born in 1978.

Oh yeah, there are so many fashion trends making a comeback that I don't want to join. Where are the hair pictures?
