The only reason I didn't sport one of those poofs is that I was always too lazy to mess with a curling iron. Still am, and consequently have had essentially the same hairdo since I was 7.
I'll admit to the big glasses, but made it through the 80s with long straight hair. I have an aversion to hairspray, and frizzy sticky hair was never my thing. I wasn't a young'un in the 80s though.
I don't think attractive glasses existed in the 80's. If you were unfortunate enough to need them (I was), you were going to look like The Fly.
My parents would never let us get any of the "trendy" haircuts, so my hair was pretty much always in a basic shoulder length bob.
I remember one time my sister complained to my dad's mom about how our mom wouldn't let us choose our own haircuts, so my grandmother took my sister to the salon and (without my mom's knowledge or permission) let her get a bowl cut with too-short bangs, like 'Lloyd' in Dumb and Dumber. My mom completely flipped her shit when she saw it. She went berserk. But that was the closest any of us ever got to the bad hair trends of the 90s.
Every girl I went to school with in the 70's broke their necks trying to get "wings" like number 5. It was an art form!
With those faces only a bag would look good on their heads.
We had an overweight, hilarious, male PE teacher who would break out a ruler and measure everyone's bangs everyday. He'd tell you you weren't trying hard enough if they were under 3 inches.
