I graduated in 1988 which means I am supposed to go to a 20 year reunion in a few weeks. I pulled out a few yearbooks this week to find…
The year is 1984.
80s Holly is living with her family in the mid-west.
Why did I sign my own yearbook?
As you can see, 80s Holly had a lot of hair. She took her hair styling seriously and could be found to occupy the bathroom for hours.
What is with the disturbed expression on my face?
80s Holly would spread out her necessary equipment.
First she would wash her hair daily with Suave.
Then she would apply thick foamy mousse for additional body.
She would blow dry her hair while carefully feathering with a round brush.
A curling iron would then further fluff where the blow dryer failed.
A little spritz of Suave hairspray.
Upside down blow drying for just a sec. (shhhh…that is the secret ingredient).
And then a final full spray of aqua net.
Why did I cut my hair?
80s hair in the 1980s was very serious business.
Fluffy was a must.
Whew…it grew out a bit.
It was all for looks.
God forbid someone try to run fingers through hair…
That would cause serious scalp injury.
Class officer picture. I was Sargent at Arms…why?
I have an explanation for my hair.
Now can someone please explain my plaid pilgrim dress with the bow on the round collar?
