onjoh, how I loved the movie xanadu when it came out. first, the roller skating…so cool. add olivia newton-john, and I was in 12-year old heaven. I wanted to be a muse. I had legwarmers (and who didn’t) and roller skates (which were orange), but I’ll bet no one else remembers the issue of family circle (or maybe woman’s day) that showed photos of all of olivia’s hairdos from the movie, and instructions for how to recreate them. my mom brought it home one day, and I tried as many of them as I could. this look was my personal favorite. those fabulous barrettes with the ribbons woven into them, softly sweeping my locks…too hot.
