Throwback Thursdays
The Year of the Poofy Bang


Can you believe I'm late to my own party? I'm co-hosting Throwback Thursdays with some fabulous ladies today. I meant to get my post together last night, but cleaned the hell out of my kitchen instead. At least my kitchen is clean, right? Right. Ok, moving on...



the lovely hosts:
Ady from When in Doubt Just Add Glitter
Julia from A Blonde Walked into a Blog
Jennifer from Sweet Southern Wife

and my co-host, Lo from The Lo Down

I'm taking everyone back to 7th grade. It was the 1991-1992 school year. It was picture day. We got our individual pictures taken then they let us take pics with our friends. Here I am with my four best friends. I had bangs.. BIG POOFY BANGS! Ok, we all had big poofy bangs. Well, most of us had them. Karen was a trendsetter rocking the fringe. I'm showing off a white wife beater under my top. We've also got a floral sweater, polka dot sweater and straight up Cosby sweater. And Melissa is in a jumpsuit with a bib that's covered in flowers. I think she wins.

Back - Melanie, Karen, Melissa

This picture is on Facebook. Everyone's tagged. There are twenty-two comments because, well, it needed to be talked about. I still keep in touch with each one of these fabulous ladies. We try to get together at least once a year. If I've learned anything from this time in my life, it's to NEVER GROW OUT BANGS AGAIN!

Laugh all you want. I'm laughing too.

If you're looking to reminisce or have a good laugh, please visit some of the blogs below. If you too have an embarrassing photo, prom horror story or diary entry from when you were eleven, link up below and share it with the blog world. I promise I'll laugh WITH you and not AT you.

This is awesome! My 7th grade self is so jealous of your bangs. My hair is thin and used to be stick straight, so my Aussie Mega Hold could only keep it up until third period. Mine was similar to the Cosby sweater girl's hairstyle.

Peace Love Applesauce- Terri said...

Myra said...

I still remember the sound of the sizzling curling iron when it got sprayed with AquaNet.

Ahh..those were the days!

This is awesome!!! And now I feel older... 1991-1992 I was a sophomore in HS. I had started to grow out the bangs thankfully by then. But my hair was STILL HUGE! Snookie didn't start the poof bangs, I DID!

Oh man, I had some terrible bangs in the 90s too! And with naturally curly hair, it really just meant that I had an afro sticking out of the front of my head, ha!

Esme said...

You know look at your picture made me take a walk down memory lane. However I don't ever recall rocking bangs! That must be the reason why I've been contemplating getting bangs now!

I can't quite handle the awesome-level of this picture. And you kind of look like the actress who played Jennifer Garner's younger self in 13 Going On 30, which really only makes this picture better! HAHA!

Rachael said...

Nice pictures, and i still remember going through that awful time of seeing people, men and women with such puffy things. Glad I wasn't part of them, but I sure had to live near a few of those.

Ady @When In Doubt Just Add Glitter said...

OH... MY.... GOSH..... that picture is priceless! bangs back in the day were the WORST!!! I remember growing them out was torture and those stupid banana clips! so glad that is over! thanks for co hosting!

Lindsey said...

I so had the same bangs! Hahaha! We were styling back then!

Mrs. Match said...

LOL!! That picture is amazing. I remember wanting poofy bangs so badly, but I could never get them quite right. Remember the "rooster tail" that was so popular? Oh man. I need to do one of these flashbacks. These are great!

Oh. my. LAWD. This has to be the most amazing ThrowBack Thursday picture in the whole existence of ThrowBack Thursday.
