Joyce in the 80s: A Curl, A Weave and Asymmetrical Stacks Made Me the Ultimate Fly Girl

Yep, I had 'em all in the 80s — a curl, several weaves and the all important asymmetrical stacks. If you caught me in the 70s, you would have seen my Stevie Wonder-Patrice Rushen braids. I moved into the 90s with my Halle Berry-Anita Baker cut, then I showcased my Janet Jackson braids, a Caesar, a Bahamadia lined-up 'fro, and more braids, braids and more braids. I snuck loudly out of the 90s with a sunfire fro, started the millennium with a braided weave and have been locking for 5 years and counting...its been a journey...who knows whats next...

I got in the throwback hair mode because someone mentioned Fly Girl in a meeting I had today. And since my Monday was waaaay too Monday, I went on an 80s binge and that did that trick.

So get out your gold chains and your fresh kicks and wop it out!

(still 3 times dope)
