Ok, Lets talk 1980s.
That was the coming of age decade for me, I graduated High School in 1981, took off for New York in the pursuit of true love, returned home a couple of years later a much wiser young woman,I learned to go from 5 foot 0 to 5 foot 7 on a good hair day! lol Lets face it 1980s was the another one of those decades designed around big hair and rock and roll bands. Earlier decades had bufontes and beehive hair styles and afros the size of small countries, but the 1980s was anything goes as long as its big and you didn't mind dying from 2nd hand hair spray fumes.
I was a Rock and Roll Princess! I had big hair, leather pants and boots in many colors. I could go from lace to leather in a heart beat and let the personalities of both take over, and I had a thing for drummers! lol I could have danced all night and many nights that's exactly what I did.......where did all that energy go?
Downtown Chicago's Rush Street and Division Street were my playgrounds, the night life was perfect and after all, I turned 21 in 1984 and didn't need my Fake ID anymore! Go Ahead and card me I dare ya! lol Out of all my 41 years, the only year I would ever go back in time and relive, just for a year mind you, was my 21st year I had the time of my life and don't regret one moment of that year.
So heres to all the Rock and Roll Princesses of the 1980s! I lift my can of Aqua Net and say cheers to you!
Now seriously folks, has anybody ever done a study on 2nd hand hair spray??? lol
