Generation X: Mid 60s – Mid 70s | Two Words: Aqua Net

This is the greatest crime against our generation. 

Actually, it isn’t.  But, it was one of many.

I used my allowance for four things:

  1. Teen magazines (Remember Tiger Beat and Teen Beat?)
  2. Music: Cassette tapes and (vinyl) records
  3. Shopping (for the crap we used to wear)
  4. Aqua Net Hair Spray

If it wasn’t teased to the 100th degree and at least 4 – 6 inches in width in circumference, it wasn’t a hair style, it was a joke.  I went through at least 2 – 3 cans a month — and that was in a good month.  (When you are living on a small allowance and baby sitting, you couldn’t risk being out of hair spray, so I had to pace myself.  If nothing else, the front and sides had to be teased — especially the bangs.)

I’m surprised I had hair left on my head when we cleared the 80s and went into the 90s.  I also think with every pump of the spray, we lost brain cells.  O_o
