Your hair is not big or anything near 80's! It's long, full of body and curl, it's beautiful! And you stand out among the crowd of straighties!
Now my hair on the other hand, can get VERY big but I love that
3a/3b thick coarse WL dark brown hair. CG/Mod CG since: 5/4/05. Current products: Right now my hair is in such a tizzy over this winter weather we are hving that nothing really seems to be working. I need a haircut.
I'll fight MH for your hair. Or just steal spacgirl's. Give me all your volume.
You both have fabulous, non-80s hair. Seriously.

Haha thanks girls I wasn't dispondent at my 'big' hair, and I guess you're right - it's not really BIG but I think it just poofed out a lot during the night, because of the heat and humidity in the club. I did start off with soft, shiney ringlets I don't think I have enough hair for it to be really big My hairs thinning as I get older *sob* I'll need to start backcombing to get volume
Thanks for the comments on the pics tho
Medussa - If I could send you my hair whilst keeping it myself I would, but I don't think you need my curls! The camera adds shine and prettyness I'm sure I'm beginning to fight the transition into spring, not becuase I don't like spring, but it means readjusting my products *sigh* I'm expecting a few weeks of bad hair!
Not even close jennyf & spacegirl! For the look we were all going for google "Daisy Mystic Pizza" for images. Actually, Julia Roberts in any film of the 80's: Pretty Woman works too. We were all obsessed with that big hair. I used to get that by...I shudder to say it now...not using conditioner. At all. Yes, until 1993, I did not even use cond'r on my 3B curls. And I blow dried it, & then put steam rollers in it to achieve the Heart look. I wish I could past digital photos on here.
If you think your hair is big then my hair is probably gigantic!
Haha, uh yea, same here. Actually my hair isnt that much bigger than yours, but it's about that big when its mostly wet. But it can get a lot bigger if my hair frizzes at all..then I get the real 80's fro..if I only i lived in that time..
And this is lots of 80's hair along with horrid 80's clothes.
