About This Quiz

Sure, we may have created a massive hole in the ozone layer due to the CFCs in our hairspray cans, but we sure looked good doing it. The '80s were about big hair and rebellious fashion statements. Have you noticed that some of the trends from that decade are making a comeback? 

Get ready; you're about to see kids rolling up their pants and wearing their collars up on their Polos any day now. We may even see hairstyles like big hair, the Mohawk, Madonna's wrap-up, and perhaps even the mullet will make a triumphant return.

If you're the kind of person who has a big personality and you love to have the spotlight on you, then it's time to stock up on hairspray because you're going big. You're likely going to be into bands like Def Leppard, Motley Crue, and Bon Jovi, and we're guessing that black T-shirts and tight-fitting jeans will accompany your look as well.

On the other hand, maybe you're more into the punk rock scene. If you have a lot of tattoos and piercings, and you're all about sticking it to "the man," the Mohawk seems like it would be a perfect fit for you. When we hear you saying things like, "I pity the fool," we'll know we nailed it.

Close your eyes, hold your breath, and let the spraying begin.
