In olden times, before the internet, we depended on magazines like Seventeen for the latest trends.
Once we read about that amazing product that would give us clear skin, we had to actually go out and buy it in a store.
Those were hard times for beauty lovers.
So what were we buying in the ’80s? See how many of these you remember… and likely owned.
When it came to hair, bigger was better!. We put A LOT of effort put into styling those giant ‘do’s, so you wanted it to stay put. For that, you needed hairspray. Specifically: Auqua Net. Cans and cans of it.
If your bigass hair was having a bad hair day, you reached for a scrunchie and styled yourself a puffy ponytail. Also popular was the banana clip, which gave you a sort of puffy Mohawk-like strip of hair down the back of head. HOT!
Makeup was pretty simple then. Purple eye shadow was all the rage, and there were tons of option for flavored lip products. Anyone remember Kissing Potion?
