80s Hair Revival

Back in high school, I had a hard time learning to style my hair. Having a cowlick smack dab in the middle of my forehead (thanks, Dad!) ruled out all center part hairstyles. Come to think of it, that was probably a blessing in disguise. I really came into my own when I learned the skills to create cockatiel bangs.

Dang I looked good! And sooooo young!

After leaving the world of 1980’s hair. I basically cycled between a bob and have a long mane with no shape.

Thanks to my fabulous hairstylist, I progressed to a shag cut, which I maintained for the last few years. Finally I had to accept the unavoidable: I have middle-aged, European woman hair. In other words, the texture has changed to fine up front with what Ma calls matted dog curl in back. No use fighting it – the shag cut simply looked stringing up by my face. Not the look I was going for.

I’m back to a bob, which my hair does without putting up a fight.

Here is my fabulous new do. (Ms. M and I were celebrating high tea with a wonderful group of women, hence the hats.)

Forever unsatisfied with what I can have, my brain has decided that I really want long hair again.

I came up with the perfect solution to my hair dilemma: I could single handedly bring the mullet back! It makes perfect sense: thin hair up front wants to be short, but the party of thick, course hair in the back could rage on.

What do you say? Are you with me? If enough of us do it, it makes it stylish!

Okay, maybe there is a reason why the 16 year old with a mullet in this picture had her hands blocking her face.

Am I the only 80’s child with mullet pictures hiding in a box somewhere? or Have you ever wanted a hairstyle your hair wouldn’t do?
