    This is fabulous. I am always fascinated by the ability of older hairstyles to not only be enormous but to defy gravity as well lol

    Edit: wording

    Here’s some true trivia, children- I was a young teen when this style became popular with young women, & some of the ‘older’ ladies HATED IT! Sooo… a ‘story’ started going around; the source was always: ‘I heard it at church’… ‘a woman at the grocery story’… ‘my cousin’s friend’ (etc., etc., etc., with variations)… “there was this girl who got a beehive, & she was so happy with it that she slept so as not to mess it up, & didn’t wash her hair for WEEKS. Well, a fly landed on her hair & made its way down to her scalp & laid eggs. They hatched into lice & started eating her scalp, eventually making their way through her skull & *EATING HER BRAIN, AND OF COURSE SHE DIED!…* AND THEY ALL BELIEVED IT!! I guess we still have folks around today who don’t seem to possess critical thinking skills!
