This post is anti-topic, but....
One time (this was unfortunate) I really wanted the fly-backs/butt-cut thing; tre hip for '83. I believe this was a few days before sixth grade began.
Mom decided I should go to a "stylist". Prior to that, I pretty much went with the bowl cut or I was hauled down to Dad's barber, because my hair was so straight and thick.
Well, the stylist said "Yes, we can do that.", and proceded with applying small, tight curlers to the front of my head, and sprayed some stuff on there that smelled similar to a home-perm kit.
The stylist forgot about me, and then remembered all-too-late.
No matter how much the blow-drying, re-wetting, re-blow-drying, the end result was the same.
I had a bowl-cut with straight, thick, brown hair, and a fashion similar to a toy-poodle stuck to the front of my head.
It was awesome, getting on the bus, for the first day of school in the sixth grade.
