    Too cute! I too had big hair and braces in the late 80s! And whenever I find any of those pics I scan them and post them on my Facebook page, because…well, I’m a sucker for self-humiliation. I have some great ones from the 90s of my pseudo-chola phase. Ha ha, what can you do but laugh?

    I had the same bangs back in ’89 (and is that a perm? had one of those too). My mom should’ve banned Aquanet from the house.

  7. heyhey says:

    No. I don’t have a school photo with hair that’s exactly like that.

    The major brow action, too.

    Nope. Not at all.

AND! i swear we both had the same hairstyle for our pictures!! what is that center one? 7th or 8th grade? cause i had the same height and teasing!! LOLZ! we could honestly pass for sisters in those pictures. 🙂
