They Wore Feathered Hair

This website just cracked me up. Check out this description:

“Surely you’ve thumbed through a high school yearbook from the late 70’s and early 80’s and you’ve found photo after photo of women wearing feathered hair modeled after the wild, tossled, flipped-back, golden tresses of Farrah Fawcett. Yes, it’s true that many women went into hair salons between 1976 and 1983 asking for the “Farrah” look, but is this what they actually came out with? The answer is yes for some, but for many the answer is no, no, no, no, no. You see, many actually came out with “The Bertinelli” . Haven’t heard of that one, have you? Well then, what is The Bertinelli”? It’s simple; you cross the Dorothy Hamill (short hair, but flat on top and center-parted) with “The Farrah”.”

Old Jack had a Jewfro so you won’t ever see pictures of me looking like any of these guys.

    I hated mullets- never wore won because I couldn’t. But even if I could have I wouldn’t.

    Looks just like my junior high yearbooks – by high school the guys all had mullets.

    That would be correct.


    I know what you mean.


    Jordache, I remember those ever so well.


    I love the colander. The ‘Isro.’ Hmm. I tried Googling that to see if we could see a sample, but failed to find anything. Oh well.

    We used to call that fluffy look the “Isro.”

    This tragedy happened to me.

    But it was sort of okay, because at least it gave me an excuse to have one of those giant-handled combs sticking out of the back pocket of my Jordache jeans (my parents wouldn’t spring for the Sergio Valentes)

    Oh my. Those look like they were taken from my high school year book.
