Glam and big hair go hand-in-hand, don’t they?
Recently, I’ve read a lot of different quotes by a lot of bands saying “…I put my hair up.”
How, exactly, do you put your hair up? (And no, I don't mean in a French twist!)
A few months ago, People magazine created a special 80s issue. The project was bigger than a normal magazine and had a semi-permanent cover, printed on glossy card stock. The magazine featured all the biggest stars of the 80s – and yes – there was a section dedicated to Glam.
In the magazine was a few quotes from the members of Cinderella. I was surprised when Eric Brittingham said he used pump hairspray back in the day. See, I always thought the best way to make hair really big...was aerosol. My bad.
So, how do you really put your hair up big? I can only make my hair so big - and then it just sort of wants to fall back to modern, straight levels. I think "putting hair up" involves a teasing and hairspray combination - but I could be wrong. Even to this day, I am stunned at how big some musicians got their hair in the 80s. I suppose having a perm helped - but come on. Guys like Nitro had hair so big it seemed unnatural - but the locks were definitely real and not wigs. Now I just want to put my hair up - not let it down!
So, ladies and gentlemen, tell me exactly how to make it big!
