Teased and Feather Bangs: Besides my frosty pink Formula 44 lip gloss, Stiff Stuff hairspray was one of those essentials that I had to have in my beauty cabinet. I was not fit to leave the house without taking my bangs, teasing them up and to the side with a fine tooth comb, and spraying them so they could no longer move. I even carried a small travel size bottle filled with the liquid glue with me to school in case my high tresses began to fall flat. I recall trying to get my mother to sport the look as well, I wanted her to look cool! I’m glad she didn’t let me experiment on her with the rooster ‘There’s Something About Mary’ look.
The Bridal Crown: Now this may be the worst offense of all. Yes, I wore a full blown crown on my wedding day. It was all the rage at the time (ask any 1995 Bride), and I spent a mini fortune on my crystal masterpiece of humiliation. The pictures are everywhere. I will never live this one down. Note to all brides to be: do not wear a crown unless a real Queen has given you hers.
I hope these trends are gone for good. Yet, I’m sure in a few years I will have some more to add to the list. What are some beauty trends you’d like to put to rest?
