Ok now I have the imaginary smell of Aqua Net in my nose
Salon selectives! It smelled like apples.
Funny, Aqua Net is sooooo 50's and 60's to me.
All the woman I was around in the 80's and 90s shunned any products in the hair, perms and the natural look were big.
These days a lot of woman (and men) come to work with so much stuff in the hair, it looks like they need to go home and wash their hair!
I had a shaved head with super long bangs, or a semi mohawk, and a period of robert smith hair. Hairspray didn't cut it in the pit. We used elmer's glue watered down.....
I dont know what was worse - all the hours I spent using a curling iron to get my hair "just right" or the copious amounts of Jeri Redding spray cement I used .
To this day, I cannot drink gin. I told DH, "It tastes just like Aqua Net hairspray." He wanted to know how the hell I knew what Aqua Net hairspray tasted like and I told him, "Once that stuff's been sprayed, you can't help but breathe some in......and trust me, gin tastes just like Aqua Net." My mother was a devotee of Aqua Net from waaaaaay back.
I can smell the scents of the '80s right through this thread! My HS BFF was a combo aqua net & stuff stuff addict, complete with "the bangs". I have naturally curly hair, and am not a bangs girls, so stuck with Aussie sprunch spray to give me the requisite poof to my hair
I can remember a summer of friends and I buying mouse, spiking our hair every which way! Good fun! Could end up looking like an explosion of hair, the Don King look, on a windy day, something common in the mid-west.
Wind could never move the hair of an East Coast girl. Rock solid!
