  1. My girls still complain about their haircuts when they were little, bangs were in!

  2. Oh my goodness! I used to color my hair all the time in junior high and high school. One time I was going to for bright blond and ended up orange, think Vitamin C singer. It was so bright. It seemed to take forever to grow out. 😆 I would love to be able to take my teen and tween to see this. We love singing along to the music! I follow you on Facebook, Instagram, and receive your newsletter by email!!

  3. My mom did an at home perm on my hair in 5th grade. She was NOT a hairdresser!!

  4. When my sister was little she told my mom that she wanted to have the same haircut was her, which was verrrrry short above her ears. Somehow that didn’t translate to the stylist who gave her THE most epic bowl cut. We still laugh about it to this day!

  5. I have super curly hair and neither my mom nor I knew anything about what to do with it. From 4-7 grades I had the absolute worst short, crazy, football helmet hair. 🤣🤣

  6. Remember when the boy cuts were all the range in the 90’s? Ha! I wanted one SOOO bad and my Mom kept telling me no. So, my Dad’s wife took me and got one. I looked terrible and had this cow lick on the side that just wouldn’t stop! Lesson learned: ALWAYS listen to Momma!

  7. I spent the 80’s sporting home perms and hot-rolled hair. It really did look pretty good! Then “Pretty Woman” came out, and we all went for the very tall, teased bangs Julia Roberts wore so well in that movie!!

  8. The time my sister wouldn’t let my mom brush her hair and she threatened to cut it off!

  9. Anyone else’s mom consistently give them home perms as a child in the 80s?? 😂 My hair was fried!!

  10. Hairiest- scariest: I showed up excited for my wedding makeover for hair and makeup only to find out my soon to be MIL scheduled it with my fiancé’s ex. I was more than a little nervous I would leave looking like a clown but she stayed professional and by the end we had shared a few laughs.

  11. I was definitely a big bang, feathered sides, mullet – ish hair wearing girl in the late 80’s & early 90’s!!!

  12. My mom cut my hair right before my first passport photo. My daughter saw the picture and asked if “Meme was mad at me?”

  13. I look at my yearbook from the 80’s and laugh that all the girl’s had the same feathered hair styles.

  14. I had the wave bangs back in the early 90’s and used alot of hairspray on them! My mom and I love the movie Hairspray!

  15. I don’t have any crazy hair stories, but I remember watching hair spray all the time. I loved the story line, the only musical movie I liked. lol I didn’t even like high school musical!

  16. I remember the bangs!!! Oh, I looked terrible with bangs! And, sadly, my hair is too straight to pouf up. Though I did love that side swoosh thing! Lol

  17. When I was in high school in the 90’s I wanted my hair cut like Chynna Phillips. I went to my hair stylist with a picture of her and told him, “this is exactly what I want.” I thought is was a simple cut and dry haircut. Apparently not, I walked out of the salon with a boys skater cut and my bangs were hanging down on one side. When I went to school, all of the kids were making fun of me and they proceeded to tell my boyfriend he was dating a boy. I had to wear skirts until my hair grew back out. It was the most awful haircut I had ever received. I have kept my hair down past my shoulders since.

  18. I was in the era of the Farrah Fawcett feathered hair and Disco, I loved it and thought I was so My kids tell me that my hair has never changed, but I think it has. Before that era I was a straight haired fun loving hippy girl 🙂 I would love to see this play it has always been one of my favorite movies

  19. My mom did 100 braids in my hair for the 100th day of school in kindergarten! Yikes!

  20. The rat tail with a bowl cut. I didn’t do it but remember those in the early 90s that did…

  21. I will never forget about 10 years ago when I was gifted a gift card to a new salon in Bentonville. It was for a color, cut and style. The stylist never turned me around to the mirror until the final reveal. I was mortified…I jumped in my car, had a good cry and then called my regular stylist to admit I cheated on her and to ask her to bail me out. LOL She did the best she could and corrected the color nicely, but the cut was a bit off for a while 🙁 Needless to say that salon is no longer open, so I might not have been the only one w/a bad experience. Lesson learned!

  22. The time my best friend cut my sister’s hair without getting mom’s permission!

  23. I just text my sisters today to see if they wanted to go to this, hairspray is my favorite!
    When I was younger my dad “cut” my bangs for me, he pulled them straight down and cut the arched so bad when he let was done. It was the worst haha

  24. I went into the stylist and said, “I need it shorter than usual but not butchy.” He must have thought I said not Bitchy, OMG! Iit was just short of Army cut! Glad my hair grew real fast!!!!

  25. Sticking to the floor due to Aquanet trying to make our bangs touch the sky! 😂

  26. My first perm in 1992 was while staying at my grandparents house for Spring Break in a small rural town (still only one stop light). My mother was not happy with the result and neither was I. Spiral curl with angled bangs!?! My grandma never took me to get my hair done again.

  27. My mother gave me a mullet haircut when I was 3 and 4 years old. Lots of pictures to unfortunately prove it.

  28. I just dyed my hair a dark periwinkle color I call “Eclipse” for the big event. 🤞🏻

  29. I just chopped like 6+ inches off my hair! Super cute cut but I wish I could fix it like my stylist! Lol

  30. Omigoodness- in junior high (about 13-14 years old) I decided to use yellow food color in my dishwater blonde hair. I only succeeded in staining every fabric that touched my head and having people comment about my ‘green’ hair- and pastel hair shades were NOT a thing then.

    • 😂❤️😂❤️ We did Kool-aid and this resembles that memory. Oh, good times.

  31. My Beard has been on my face for my children’s entire lives. They have never seen my face. My oldest is almost 24 and my youngest twins are 17.🙂

  32. I’ve been dying my hair since I was 12 and at age 21 I finally met my match, Splat Hair Dye. I loved the bright vibrant blue I had from it but after a couple months I wanted something new. Looking back this was the dumbest thing I could’ve done but I decided to bleach over the blue. Long story short, I fried off quite literally, half of my hair. Lesson learned.

  33. I finally got layers cut into my super long hair. I I daringly got my first shaved undercut at the nape of my neck at 50. LOVE IT 🥰

  34. My 8 year old just got bangs, and umm… I’m ready for them to grow out already! 😂🙈 also, there was that one time I lived with all girls and had to snake the shower drain when it wouldn’t drain anymore… talk about hairy! 😬🤢

  35. I remember cutting my hair length “bangs” to my scalp of little stubs with blue Crayola scissors in kindergarten. That happened! Angled bob throughout the 90’s and always “Mall Bangs” as my mom called them.😂💜 RIP Momma
