How did you have your hair done for your high school yearbook photo? Did you go to a beauty shop? Was it roller set? How much hairspray? Did your mom make you , or did you want it set?

My photo is my high school yearbook photo. It was roller set, teased, and sprayed. My mom made me go, but I didn't mind. I thought it made me look like my big sister!

  • I believe I did it myself, just straightened all of my hair and curled the ends. However, my natural hair color is blonde and I had my hair dyed brown... my mother wasn't pleased haha :)

  • Nope.

    I wanted my picture to reflect ME, not some alter-image I was projecting just for a picture.

  • I graduated high school in 1987. That should tell you how big my hair was, lol. I had my starched collar up too, Miama Vice style. I did my hair myself, curling iron and of course, aqua net.

  • My friend came over and fixed it for me. She used hot rollers, and it gave me soft, gentle curls. It was pretty long in those days, and I wore it down. I might have used a bit of hair spray, just so the curls wouldn't lose their shape. My mom didn't care how it looked, as long as I looked presentable.

  • I graduated in 84 before the hair got big. I actually had shorter hair ~ a cross between Di and Hamill... LOL... did it myself.

  • I got a poofy perm right before my photo. I look ridiculous.

  • As you can see by my profile picture, I had it done at a beauty shop I could not do it good enough for a School Yearbook. She did use hair spray, and it was my idea, not my Mothers. Oher than that I always did it myself.
