Default 80s/90s hair?

Do you remember the smell of your favorite hairspray? As a child of the 1980s and early 1990s, the smell of Rave and Aqua Net bring back horrible images of gigantic, crunchy bangs. You know, the kind that wouldn?t budge for 3 days if you were walking through 80 mph winds in a rainstorm. My mom called my bangs ?The Claw,? and, unfortunately has many photographs to prove how unflattering and ridiculous the hairstyle was. But, oh, on school picture day, how the girls? bathroom smelled like Rave. We?d be lined up in a row, much like a firing squad, only our weapons were a can of aerosol hairspray in one hand and a pick in the other. Teasing our bangs until they stood up on end, we would have competitions to see who could get their bangs off of their forehead the highest. What was your spray of choice and how high was the highest hair in your school!?

Oh man, you just brought back so many memories. I too am a child of the 80 and early 90s. (Graduated high school in 1991) My bangs were high, but not as high as others in my class. One girl had the teased out bangs that I think were atleast 6 inches tall and the sides of her hair were teased out too.

Oh and we had to pin our graduation caps to our heads, so we did not mess up the bangs. I know one girl had about 30 bobby pins in her hair since her cap was on the back of her head.

Thanks for the fun memory.

Trish

I remember a hair spray in a can that smelled like melon. I think it was Rave? If I smelled it today I would recognize it immediately.

I had a friend with sky-high bangs. People sitting behind her in class would tap on her desk to make her bangs jiggle. They must have been 6" high.

That smell was Salon Selectives.

HEY I just gave myself bangs, last week. I haven't had them since 1991.

By junior high (1990) I discovered Aussie and I still love that stuff. Prior to that it was Rave. I never really got into the big, high hair, but I had the sausage curled bangs; bottom half rolled under, top half rolled up and back with minimal teasing. I did however have 3 ft of spiral permed hair. Took three boxes of perm solution at the salon to do it. Did you spray the sides of your hair and then hold them out under the hand dryer to get the sides to wing out?

I never had the patience for the teasing, hairspray and hairdryer routine to do my hair...so mine was short and was a one length bob with variations of length too, but mostly the simple Molly Ringwald bob and wave look. LOVED GEL and mousse for the wave and faux spiral perm look. When I did let my hair grow long, I had the full on spiral perm and would pull it up half and half most of the time. I was lucky enough to have a hairdresser that had product to make my hair keep the spiral for a year to a year and a half as long as I went for my trims every six months...and that is with hair that is straight as a nail and finer that the thinnest needle, otherwise it would have been a fortune to maintain. Loved my short hair the best. I often think about chopping my hair from the length it is now to a shorter length but with dancing and often having to pull it into a bun, I don't have the patience to fight with "adding" a bun to my head. LOL

Oh my goodness. I had the perm with the bangs and the hairsprayed, dried with a hair dryer sides. I loved the smell of all the different hair sprays. I went through Rave, Suave, Aussie, and Finesse. You always knew when someone shelled out a lot of money for hair spray when you'd smell that fruity smell of Paul Mitchell. I could probably still name all of the those different brands with a blind sniff test. I've wondered if the permed, teased bangs look would come back with skinny jeans and neon colors. They would make it look all new and revamped of course. Does anyone also remember the rollers that were made out of sponge and you set each one on a steamer before you put them in your hair? What were they called? I loved them.

The hair product I miss most from the 80s? Agree shampoo and conditioner!

They revived the brand for a few years around 2000-2005, and I bought it a few times at Walmart. Then they changed the fragrance, and seemed to have dropped it entirely. I loved the smell of that stuff!
