    Hairdos of the past

    My Biggest Hair Days


    The year was 1969 and this was the style of the day. I was a sophomore at Norwalk High School in Norwalk, California. Creating this do took a lot of work. The main thing was getting the Aquanet buildup. I would wash my hair on Sunday, roll it and start the process. By the weekend, it was just the way I wanted it. I ratted it, sprayed it and then combed, then sprayed again. If it didn't work out, I didn't want to go to school (that important). My old sister had the same hairdo, so it took us about 30-40 minutes in the bathroom every morning. This photo has been used on greeting cards and in a commercial in the UK. Crazy that the hairstyle we took for granted back in the day, is now something of an oddity.
