Gen Xers have rockin' hair







I'm in a bad mood today, so I'm posting these pictures to cheer myself up.

I am going to argue that Xers had the best teenage/early adult hair of any generation.

The silents had the Richie Cunningham hair - ick.

The boomers had long stringy hippy hair - unflattering

And the Millennial boys are running around with girly curls - yikes.

Nothing says work-life balance like a Gen X retro mullet. Business in the front, party in the back. You know it's cool.

Hm. I could never get my hair to look quite right. I always looked like I had too small a head. Looking at those pictures you posted....mmmm. My goodness that was some terrible hair - yes yes yes, much better than the Haight/Ashbury look for sure, but...um. Rather than say it was the best adolescent/young-adult hair, perhaps it could be best categorized as the least bad hair?

I don't know about cool - scary is more like it. I kind of like the curly mops the kids wear today - may be because my son has beautiful curls :D

You are all wrong. Mulletts rock. It's the perfect hairdo.
