My mom has been clearing out her garage during shelter in place.
She came across a motherload of old photos, and was kind enough to share one with me.
This is me my sophomore year in high school:
Notice the 80’s style feathered bangs and curled ends.
I was lucky I never had one of those perms that was so popular back in the day.
But HELLO HAIR!
I remember spending HOURS combing my bangs so they fell just right and then spraying them in place with AQUA NET hairspray.
Like Trump, in a stiff breeze, my bangs would stand straight up, as if they were a rudder I was supposed to use to steer myself through the wind.
Little known fact – this picture was taken pre-cosmetic surgery.
You’ll notice under my left eye a small brown mark.
I had an unsightly mole there and it took forever but I managed to convince my parents to let me have it removed.
I love this picture.
I look so wholesome and virginal because back then I WAS WHOLESOME AND VIRGINAL.
Welcome to the 80s!
