Just realised I have the same hairstyle as I had in 1986.

Can anyone else claim that? And I'm wearing the same make up.

I have had a number of different styles in between.

Not far off, in 1985 (just before my princess Di cut) I had the same style as I currently have but by 1986 I was big into my flick and hairspray

Luckily I can say I don't otherwise I would be sporting a frizzy sort of mullet affair with lots of blue eyeliner!

I have the same hair style i had in 1982!! i was in the last year of primary school then and I had a fringe and long hair then. Same now. But now, it's straighter. It was so frizzly and thick in 1982, i think it's bad now if i don't blow dry it, jeez it was worse then. how i had the nerve to leave the house i don't know. i never gave my appearance a thought.

thank goodness in 1982 we had adamant, madness, bananarama to dance around to. not lady gaga, rhiana and shakira.

Ah yes I went through an electric blue mascara phase around that time eek!

I was a wannabe goth in 1986 - the furthest my parents/school would let me go was the black eyeliner. Hair back in a ponytail and a very straight fringe. God I looked good grin

If I had the same hairstyle as i had in 1986 it would be bunches, as I was 4! I'll get my coat...

I had a shoulder length perm with a straight, unpermed fringe : /

I have more or less the same cut (long and layered) but ghds make all the difference.
