Muwahahahahaha! (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=124563&p=2767189#post2767189);)

It's a blast from the past.... Whether you call them "mall bangs", "the claw", "wave bangs" or something else, find an excuse to make your hair BIG! There's gotta be an 80s party you can find (or host), right?

Just try not to expand that ozone hole too much, okay? :wigtongue

I have neglected to participate in past months because mess and I are in neglect mode but I am choosing to say oh heck no to this one. Challenge unaccepted

Oh my. I've never had bangs, so this probably won't happen.

Ha ha, awesome, the 80's return!! :lol: Sadly, I don't think I can even fake this style, I just don't have the hair for it.

Ok y'all.... This is the best I could do with oiled, four day old hair.... (No hairs were harmed, back-combed, etc. in the creation of this hairstyle.... Just strategically placed clips!)

You ladies don't have the guts for real mall bangs. The first sound of sizzle and you'll run screaming! :p

That was a noble attempt, Allie.

Oh my, if only I could go back to that era. :lol: Good times! :)

Don't have bangs anymore, and not intending to get them any time soon, so I can't participate. Wishing those that do, plenty of luck. :lol:

Hmm, there is actually some AquaNet in the house from when my MIL lived here. I don't have bangs but I could give it a good go.:hmm:

Oh my goodness. I remember my bangs from that era! I used Aquanet (the asthma had been diagnosed back then but gave me not trouble really except for allergy season). I remember destroying multiple curling irons from the build up of hairspray. And going through cans at a time! I had a perm in my hair, which was 1a/f/ii at the time, and used mousse, teasing and aquanet. I did the sides too. It would take half an hour at least most days!

Challenge unaccepted here too. It would take my wispy grey face framing layers and probably break them right off! Not to mention the asthma attack I'd get from the hairspray. :p

I do remember the sizzle though! That's how you knew you were doing it RIGHT! :lol:

Oh yes, the sizzle, the sizzle! :lol: And when it was all crimped and glued onto each other with hairspray, then you crimped it some more, and backcombed some more, and and... OMG the folly of youth. (Well I was in my teens at that point.)

Those are some super nicely placed clips.

you nailed it Allie_snowflake...and i love your hair color by the way!

i remember that sizzle as well, we'd spray the hell out of our hair and then crimp it...oh yeah. I actually remember the split ends i had when i was in my early teens, it looked like i had one of those razor cuts but i hadn't, it was just all splits.

I have bangs! I may be giving this a shot before I wash my hair next. ;)

Thanks everyone :) I don't own hairspray anymore so I couldn't do the "wings" on the sides.

Cute hairstyle and cute bangs, love it! :D Your bangs are pretty darn well-behaved when I compare them to the eighties and what we used to do to our bangs during that era. :)

thanks ! yes they aren't as big as I imagined they would be :( I think if I had access to a well ventilated area ( that is not our balcony :D ) ,I could maybe hairspray them into a standing position :D or have an adult help me out :laugh:

Yes!!! Noble attempts so far :) :applause I never had this hairstyle (didn't have bangs when I was little) but I sure remember my mum when she permed her (fine) hair and had epic gravity-defying bangs! My bangs have grown out so I can't do this hairstyle justice but I will see if I can attempt to do something mall-bang-esque...

OK, that's it--challenge TOTALLY accepted. I lived through mall bangs and I know how to do it. And since I trim my bangs/layers regularly and actually own hairspray, I will make them authentic; I am willing to endure the damage for y'all. Get ready to see how it's done, ladies!

LOL I was planning on it tonight, but my brother had a crisis and my mom went to the urgent care. Everyone's ok, though. I will put a reminder in my phone and try to do it sometime this weekend. It's just hectic and I am exhausted right now. I promise, though, y'all, unless *I* end up in the ER for some reason. Day off=not really day off.

Ha, yes, my hair would be so awesome in 1988! This is just normal bun-straightened morning hair. Cant imagine how big it would get if I actually let it curl, ratted and sprayed it!

Ooooh too bad , I can't see the picture in the thread that is set as example.
I had bumberbangs in the 80's, and the sideswept wave LOL

Could try to fake it now, as I don't have bangs.
But would like to see the original picture please :-)
