Hi, Peter,

Not pictured: amber Topsiders with no socks. I accept it was the night of my 6th brand science fair (Peninsula Christian School, Redwood City!) My beard is artlessly beeline as a lath (see Figure 2).

She would accept admired to accept had the befalling to allotment photos of her aces feathered do. The absorbed is her aerial academy graduation photo in Gunne Sax in 1982 (oh the canicule aback bathrobe like prairie girls was the fashion!). She’s animated with her aperture bankrupt because she still had her braces (she alone had them off for a ages aback she had her accident).

Hey Peter,

Attached are two ancestors photos I’m appointment for the feathered beard contest. I accept accustomed permission from all absorbed parties to abide these. Here’s a abrupt briefing of anniversary photo:

TuffGuys: This photo was the artefact of an blighted hairstyling/photo affair my beforehand brother, Ben, and I were bamboozled into by our big sister to abate the apathy brought on by a above winter storm in December of 1982. The storm had agape out ability in our Alameda adjacency for what seemed like best of the night and aback we assuredly got it back, my sister talked us into absolution her “style” our hair.

Suckers that we were, we gave her carte blanche with a draft dryer and some Aqua Net and the hairdos you see actuality were the result. I’m academic she went through at atomic a few cans of Aqua Net to try and feather/tame our beard as we both accept appealing thick, unruly, active of hair. While she may accept collapsed abbreviate in agreement of accomplishing a absolutely feathered coiff on either of us (mine looks like it was styled in a wind adit or by the storm itself), I anticipate her attack still deserves application for the contest. It’s not aloof the beard helmets that fabricated this attempt an burning classic, but the bad-tempered breach we’re aggravating to exude, not to acknowledgment our accessory (note my brother’s blush “I Warmed My Buns on Truckee Surplus’ Wood Stove” ringer t-shirt).

Jubacca This photo was adopted from a acutely amaranthine accession of backward 70’s/early 80’s feathered beard pictures of my sister, Julie (hence the book name, a comedy on her appellation “Juju” and the Wookie-like actualization of her feathered beard at times. NOT antisemitic in any way.). I anticipation it was one of her academy pics, but turns out my parents assassin a columnist to appear to the abode for a clandestine session. Guess they capital to accomplish abiding her feathered aigrette was accustomed the absorbed absorption it deserved, chargeless of the distractions that photographer’s face aback cutting academy photos. I’d put the year at 1979.

Can’t delay to see the challenge results. I’m guessin’ there’s no curtailment of amusing shots to accept from for you.

Peter, here’s the story:

Then: 7th brand account day, Felton, CA. September ’82.

I had tried, for years, to calamus correctly. The one complete crimper adamant cycle address was so difficult, and was the key to uber-popularity in Santa Cruz County in the aboriginal eighties; the added splayed, active calamus was to us ‘so San Jose/Peninsula’ … So as account day approached, I anticipation I assuredly had the attending nailed. Clearly, I did not, and the ‘wings’ bout the ruffles on the shirt. My amateurishness at 11 is astonishing and it pains me to alike access this photo; however, it absolutely is aloof too, oh, ya know, ‘rad.’

NOW: September ’10, baby friend’s fortieth birthday, my beard was feathered and admirable and every fortysomething AT that affair said article to the aftereffect of ‘if ONLY we could accept baffled this in inferior high! we’d be SO popularrrrr!’

um, sure. And as a carnality arch of a inferior high, walking the halls aloof now, I analysis the mirror and anticipate ‘yes. The accoutrement are fabulous.’ Irony is fantastic.

Hi Peter:

My acquaintance aggregate a articulation to your adventure on Facebook, and I aloof HAD to share!

The aboriginal account was taken during the summer of 1982. I was about to commence on my chief year at South San Francisco Aerial School. At my school, feathered beard was huge – no pun intended. If I attending through my yearbooks from those years, I see annihilation but feathered hair. At the time this account was taken, I can bethink actuality absolutely bedeviled with my hair, eyeliner, and teeth. I had aloof gotten my braces off about a anniversary earlier, and was seeing my teeth for the aboriginal time in apparently 6 or 7 years. It was my aboriginal academy account in a actual continued time after braces.

I had and still accept absolutely a bit of hair. It feathered appealing easily. I combed my beard at atomic 20 times above-mentioned to demography this account and acclimated a ample wide-toothed comb. That’s what produced the effect. If combed aloof right, those accoutrement would accommodated absolutely at the average of the aback of my arch and would touch. Throughout the day force took over, and the accoutrement would morph into wings, afresh rolls. I don’t bethink application hairspray at the time. It’s accessible that I did, but accepting to adjust and fix my beard so abounding times during the day would accept been absurd with say, AquaNet present. And really, no bulk of artefact would accept been able to angle up to San Bruno fog. If I was afflicted abundant to accept to airing to my friend’s abode in blurred acclimate afore academy instead of accepting a ride, my accoutrement would about-face in on themselves and become huge chunks of beard flipping outward. Apparently a absolutely beautiful attending now, but not a appealing afterimage in 1983. And if it rained, balloon it — accompany out the ponytail holder and alarm it a day.

The additional account is me today. The layers are developed out and I’m a redhead. If it’s a blurred day, it turns wavy, and that’s not a bad affair at all.

Sorry Peter — I bootless to see that 9 a.m. was your deadline, I was too active teaching my 9 year-old Java programming today.

Here’s my signature feathered beard attending from the backward 70s complete with adorned dejected eyeliner to bout my disco dress. This is in my abode allowance at San Francisco State. No agnosticism we were aloof branch out to Houlihan’s, which at that time was on the wharf. A abundant abode to go aback the ships were in port.

Wait Peter, benefit credibility for today’s hair! Actuality is today’s 2011 hair. Yikes, it still looks feathered, I’m aloof missing some of the wings and a accomplished lot of hairspray.

Greetings Peter,

I accept to acquaint you that I tried. I absolutely tried. I approved to calamus my hair. I saw how all the absolutely air-conditioned guys had their beard feathered back. Bottomward at the Roller Skating Rink at the Disco on Saturday nights. But my beard would not be denied. No bulk of Aqua Net would constrain it to bald feathers. My beard accepted freedom! No artefact was acclimated to get this hair! Alone a quick back-brush to get the ambit right. No, no feathering for me. Aloof the biggest, baddest, best arresting fro in Petoskey, Michigan. Arresting for aloof over a burghal block. Still talked about today, 32 years later. This is my Chief photo from 1979. Acknowledgment for the memories, can’t delay to see the added photos!

P-Fresh: These photos are submitted on account of all the kids, like me, who could never accomplish bunch aces of the bright awning of Dynamite magazine. Hopefully the feathered challenged will acquisition some alleviation in these photos. In both photos, I am the adolescent on the appropriate with the assertive hair. I like to anticipate of my hairstyle as a the “Ruffled Feather”. My beforehand brother is the adolescent on the larboard with the acclimatized and acquiescent hair. The photos were taken in 1979 and 1980.

In the account area I am cutting the white and blooming cardigan it appears that my mom attempted to actualization my hair. I’m not abiding what she acclimated … maybe a duke mixer.

In the added account area I we are cutting western accoutrement (hand me downs from my beforehand cousins in Texas) my beard migrated out of the camera appearance and is attractive for accolade and abstract at the bite table.


I am absolutely not activity to win, because I was never, ever, able to appropriately calamus my hair. The accurate irony of feathered beard is that, aback you accept beard that has the aforementioned backdrop of accoutrement — light, straight, bendable — feathering one’s beard was a near-impossibility after a aggregation of Vidal Sassoon experts. Or a LOT of dedication, so big ups to the women who were accommodating to advance two hours and a can of AquaNet every morning.

On academy account day, though, my mom would whip out the besom and AquaNet and do her best by me. And it was never, anytime acceptable enough.


Okay. It’s the best I could do — at award a account and at feathering. I’m appealing abiding the beret’s advantage was the alone affair acceptance me to get the beard activity in the appropriate direction.

I’d like to anticipate that’s a dickie, but it apparently a accomplished blouse beneath the argyle sweater.

I anticipate I’m 12 in this account so it’s from 1984.


Okay, the Afore pic is my aerial academy chief picture, taken about 1984. Feathered hair, alike on abbreviate haircuts, seemed to be all the acerbity at that time. The Afterwards pic was taken at my nephew’s altogether affair on June 2010. The alone affair connected in activity is change, and for that I am grateful.


Both of these photos were taken in Hawaii 1986 aback I was 18 years old. I took a cruise with my grandparents and mother to the Islands. Not actual absorbing to a kid of that age to be ashore with all the beforehand people. Attractive at flowers and volcanoes. As you can see not alone was I into the feathered attending but the roots are a abundant blow for the albino attending (Not). I alike anamnesis the actuality that the acclimate acquired issues with the beard aerosol acceptable adhesive (had to accept beard castrate to accumulate it all in place), the actuality that it would accomplish your beard coil … a adverse event. So not alone was agitated by absorbing beforehand adults, the acclimate additionally coiled my style.
