Flashback Friday


Camille over at a sorta a fairy tale, does a Flashback Friday and I opted in this week.

The rules are simple if you want to add an entry too...simply link up an old picture, video, or post. No other rules than that she says, except to have fun. ;)

Here's my contribution: Hubby's Senior Pic.  He's a Native American, so his hair is usually jet black. Loving that Sun-In he used (anyone remember how popular that was??), lololol!

He still looks handsome to me. :)  Happy Friday, all!

Anyone remember when Sun-In was all the rage?

  2. Love it! Sun-in for me Daytona 1987. When I came home my dad was TOO undone with me. We took a trip back home every summer and he said I wasn't going with my hair looking like "that". Pretty much the same color as your husband. So my mom scheduled a hair appointment for me. The hairdresser dyed it JET BLACK. That was obviously not my color either. I probably washed it 50 times that first week trying to get some of the black out. It's still on the market, I saw it at WalMart. LOL!

    1. I did Sun-In and self-tanner at the same time...both disasters, and my mom made me go to school. Oh the horror. My hands were streaked orange and my legs were too (evident at gym class). Thank goodness no one could see the bottom of my feet, lol!

      Too funny your dad let you have the black dye!! Wasn't he with the trends?!?!? LOLOL

      Remember Cyndi Lauper's checkerboard shave on one side of her head? I had a friend whose mom let her little sister do that...eesh, I was mortified for her then but her friends thought it was cool. :)

    2. OMG I do remember that. Anything Cyndi Lauper would have been a terrible look to copy deliberately. LOL!

    1. Young whippersnapper! :)

      Sun-In was a spray you put in your hair and when you went into the sun it was supposed to turn blonde. If your hair wasn't already blonde though, it turned orange. ;)

  4. I never heard of Sun-In, lol maybe because where I'm from "Blonde" is not the norm, I had blue hair though...does that count? LOL...rebel without a clue at that age!!and I still think I have no clue but that's a completely different story, Ha!
    What a great picture! you have a very handsome hubs!

  12. Handsome! I wish I had older pictures like that but I can't seem to find any that don't include my high school boyfriend and I don't think my husband wants to see those. I remember Sun In! I used to spray it in and use the blow dryer to try to get it to bleach me faster!

    1. Yours probably came out great w/Sun In because it's already that gorgeous blonde!

  13. Sun In! I remember that stuff. I have dark hair and it turned it orange. Looks like your hubby got a bit of an orange tint too lol. I think that stuff was made for light haired folks!

    1. I have brown hair and it turned mine orange. It was def. for blondes, which is probably why it didn't last because people buying it generally wanted blonde hair (not red or orange). ;) Eek, maybe they still make it, haha, I don't even know. I haven't heard of it in years.

  14. Good-looking guy!

    Sun-In? My hair also turned orange. It was popular, is it still around??

    1. I looked it up, it IS still around! That's longevity. ;)

    1. I just saw your post, and it was awesome. How fun that you were a Sun-In gal too. I only did it once...it was enough. I bleached a couple of times too, no idea why I did that...eesh...totally made me look washed out.

  19. I used sun in when I was in middle school :) It actually worked pretty well on my hair and it turned blonde not the orange that it did for most people. Love the flash back photo!

  20. I remember that stuff, barely. I never used it. He is handsome.

    1. I didn't even know him then, it was a long time ago. :)

      My hair looks to be the same color as yours, so you probably made a wise decision not to buy/use it. ;)

  22. I have no idea what a sun in is? Hair color?

    And very handsome :)

    1. You spray it in your hair and sit in the sun to get pretty sun streaks. Of course we were all kids and used it liberally like shampoo hoping to go all blonde. For those who had light hair, it worked fine. The rest of us who wanted blonde hair were out of luck (but we did have a nice shade of rust orange to sport around until it wore off). :)

      Delete
  23. I'm older than you, so your Sun-In gave me a nasty earworm from an old ad: "say the sun did it, don't let on that it was really Summer Blonde; it lightens just a little touch, so you can always SAA-AAAY the sun did it!" Crap. I'll be days getting rid of this one.

  26. Hahahaha - I used sun-in and I am pretty sure it absorbed into my scalp and my hair 20 years later still has traces of it.

    1. I'd not be happy if I had orange in my hair for 20 years. ;)

  27. I have to admit I've never heard of sun-in :-)

  28. Yep... I can see the Native American in him. My Mother and her family looked very American Indian. I am a bottle blonde so I may also look Indian if I could leave the bottle alone. He is very Handsome Rosey!!

    1. His dad's 100% but his mom's not Indian.

  29. Rosey, that sweater (we call them jerseys or jumpers) takes me right back! Does he still wear it? Cheers

    1. No, but he does have clothes from 30 years ago that he still wears and I always tease him about it. I remember those sweaters too. :)

    1. Probably a lot less brass to their color as a result, I'm guessing. :)

  31. Ah, yes - unfortunately I know Sun In well. Not the best for those of us with very dark hair! The velour v-neck sweater, hair feathered and parted in the middle...and I bet he had a comb in his back pocket too! I bet he had all the girls chasing him:)

    1. Ahahaha, I remember the comb in the back pocket. I wonder if Vinnie Barbarino made that popular. LOL!
