My closing picture is this of Madonna with bleach blonde hair. This hairstyle sent the world hair crazy. Everybody wanted this style, I had my hair bleached to be just like it. It was revolutionary and so bold. Before this highlights and perms were the fashion, when Madonna went blonde she started hair colour revolution.
As a hairdresser it is so interesting to look back at fashion like this and see where the trends came from. When you are living in the moment as a teenager you may think a look or style is great, but you never think of its historical value, where it will sit in future history. Although when I was 15 I also remember thinking everyone over 25 was old! So I am sure the historical value of fashion never entered my head. Wouldn’t it be lovely to go back in time, maybe for a week, a bit like on Peggy Sue Got Married, just to observe!
