It's time for some more of Colleen's FlashBack Friday action......
So I left off in 1984...my ugliest year. Now I enter my high school years. We'll call this phase of my life "The Big Years"....big attitude, big drama, and BIG HAIR! Oh yeah baby....My hair got taller and taller every year of high school...by the time I reached my senior year I had a nest of birds taking up residence in my lovely bouffant.
I started out small in 1986....I was slowly learning how to get height. I was also starting to read my teen magazines religiously looking for instructions on makeup application. I would study the pictures of the models in the magazines noting the colors of their skin, hair, eyes and eyeshadow. I would then spend days experimenting with different colors and application techniques. Oh yes...I was THAT vain....oh, who am I kidding.....I'm STILL that vain.
Here I am at Christmas in 1986...I just know your dig'n that knit sweater and skirt set.
Then I enter my 10th grade year in 1988....I had slowly mastered the Aqua Net / big round brush/ blow dryer application technique...and blue eyeshadow was history.
Later in my 10th grade year I learned the UPSIDE DOWN/ aqua net/ big brown brush/ hairdryer application technique to achieve even MORE height....gravity is a wonderful thing...
My senior year....1990. My dear friend Traci had a black Trans Am. We thought we were the shit cruising around in that thing blasting AC/DC with the windows rolled down ....hell.....who am I kidding.....we WERE the shit! A good hair day was judged by whether or not we could fit our hair in her car. If our hair was smashed into the ceiling of her car....we were good.
