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?

I totally used sun in too. Lol it was awful. My hair was orange.

mail4rosey said...

I did too, but I'll not be posting a picture of THAT, bwuahaha

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!

mail4rosey said...

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. :)

Kenya G. Johnson said...

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

Pat Hatt said...

Ummm what the heck was sun in? lol before my time I suppose.

mail4rosey said...

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. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Agreed!

Lizbeth McGow said...

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!

Raising Reagan said...

Your hubby must be around my age because I totally remember both the clothing and hairstyle from that picture :)

Great memories!

Sandee said...

He's very handsome, but you already know that.

Have a terrific day. :)

John DeBellis said...

So many used that sun in, was rather funny

Kristi Maloney said...

He is very handsome. I'm thinking prom king? :) Sun-in eh? I think I used that once or twice. He wears it well. What a fun link up...I have a certain prom pic. that would work for this....lol! Have a great weekend! :)

Holy Ghost Writer said...

Sun in the greatest invention to many it was

mail4rosey said...

My daughter liked a boy with blue hair once. :)

mail4rosey said...

He's handsome to me, and looks a little like the offspring. ;)

mail4rosey said...

I remember those velour sweaters and pointy collars too. I probably had both at one time or another. ;)

mail4rosey said...

You have a terrific day too, Sandee. :)

mail4rosey said...

Not funny if you were a victim. That stuff took forever to come out too.

mail4rosey said...

Not prom king, lol. He was voted Most Shy for his yearbook. And you DO have the perfect prom picture for the link up!

mail4rosey said...

especially those who were already blonde. ;)

Chatty Crone said...

I do remember that product - my brother used it and his hair turned a nice blonde.
You have a handsome hubby.

Julie Maloney said...

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!

Theresa said...

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!

mail4rosey said...

This picture's before my time. He was a young lad headed off to college here. ;)

mail4rosey said...

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

mail4rosey said...

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.

Susan Kane said...

Good-looking guy!

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

Suzan Sweatman said...

Oh this brings back such memories - NEVER went anywhere without my Sun In lol
What a great photo!
I'm headed over their now - thanks for the tip
Have a beautiful weekend Rosie - with El Hunko!!!
XOX

mail4rosey said...

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

mail4rosey said...

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.

Lala H said...

His handsome! and no i havent heard of sun in before.

Delightful Ideas

mail4rosey said...

That was 30 years ago, and he's lucky and glad to have his mostly black hair now a days (instead of it being all gray). ;)

Judy Haughton-James said...

You certainly married a handsome guy Rosey!

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Judy. He's a keeper.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Oooh, handsome guy! What a great senior picture. Most of them don't end up so well haha! Hope you have a great weekend, Rosey :)

mail4rosey said...

You too, Tammy! I love weekends. :)

Ann Jones said...

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!

mail4rosey said...

Ah, one of the lucky ones. :)

alissa apel said...

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

mail4rosey said...

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. ;)

Heather Nelsen said...

That is a great picture! Too cute!

Colette S said...

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

And very handsome :)

Murr Brewster said...

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.

Veronica Lee said...

Handsome fella! Never heard of sun in either!

Have a wonderful weekend, sweetie!

Treatntrick Treat and Trick said...

What a lovely photo of your sweetheart! Have a fabulous week...

Masshole Mommy said...

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.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

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

mail4rosey said...

It makes my husband laugh because it was 30 years ago! Time really does breeze on by!!

mail4rosey said...

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). :)

mail4rosey said...

lol, I still get ads from long ago stuck in my head from time to time too. :)

mail4rosey said...

Wonderful weekend wishes to you!

mail4rosey said...

Weekends are the best part of the week. Fab weekend to you!

mail4rosey said...

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

mail4rosey said...

Another young whippersnapper!

My Journey With Candida said...

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!!

mail4rosey said...

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

Carole said...

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

mail4rosey said...

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. :)

~ Noelle said...

ha ha ha..i remember it.. although my friends all just used lemon juice

Dana Hemelt said...

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:)

mail4rosey said...

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

mail4rosey said...

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