Sincerely ‘Fro Me to You- ’80s Permed Prom ‘Fro

  

 

Okay….get up off of the floor….. it’s not THAT funny!  This was 198something.  Actually, it was 1988.  I had graduated the year before- 1987.  This was my boyfriend’s (and now ex-husband…not that that has any relevance at all to this post.) Junior Prom.  That’s right!  Two years younger than me!  Hey!  Go easy….he’s the father of my oldest two!  Anyway, I didn’t get asked to my Junior Prom.  Or my Senior Prom.  Heavy sigh.

I just hope my friend doesn’t stumble upon this and um, tie me up and perm my hair for posting this pic.  Oh, I shiver at the thought!  Permed hair.  Oh THATmama, I know YOU understand!

The blue shimmery tinfoil-looking material would be lame.  Royal blue lame.  That’s lu-ma, with a long a, not lame, people.  Assymetrical.  With lots of layers.  And the ‘do?  Wellllll….permed ‘fro with lots of teasing!  The above picture sorta cut it off…so….just for you…I’ll add another…

….it’s dark…but you get the “picture”…the hair anyway?

Good times!  Good times!

And that’s “Sincerely “fro Me to You!”  😉

While I was not quite ready for prom in 87… being still in Elem School and all, I remember my cousin, whom I looked up to and adored, wearing very similar hair and very similar dress to her prom. You were in good company!

It looks as if you and your friend have shared the same material for the dress…
Lovely big perm.

Happy Mommy….we didn’t share the same material. It just happened that way! Amazing, huh? Two royal blue shimmery dresses!

I had a dress much like that. My friend had one much shinier in silver… lame. Who in the world thought up lame anyway?

I’ve got a Sincerely Fro’ post today too, here:

You look so cute. Fun pix.

How much Aqua Net did it take to keep your hair like that? I usually averaged a can and a half per formal event. Those bangs don’t just stay up like that on their own 🙂
