Farrah Fawcett's winged, layered locks had high school
girls rushing out to buy curling irons back in the late '70s.

It was fab, so
’fess up to your Farrah
mane attraction


It was only for a year that Farrah Fawcett (then Farrah Fawcett-Majors) starred as a regular on television's "Charlie's Angels," but she made an impact that would last years, and years, and years.

That's right. You know they exist. Those pictures!

Not the picture of Farrah in that infamous swimsuit poster that every teen-age boy owned. We're talking yearbooks, baby.

After "Charlie's Angels" debuted in September 1976, a legion of teen-age girls adopted the Farrah look. With curling irons, it was possible for girls with fine hair or thick hair of every color, to create that flipped back, winged, layered and toussled look that looked so fresh and sexy.

For the next two to three years, high school yearbooks would be full of heads topped by "Farrah" hair. After a while, the actress disappeared along with her hair, but those yearbook pictures remain.

Now that Charlie fever is back with the debut of the film version of "Charlie's Angels," we thought it might be time for ya'll to dig out those photos, send them into us so that we may share them with other readers. We promise to be kind. Also, let us know just what were you thinking at the time, like, was it cool, a ploy to get dates, or going along with the crowd.
