wow. they don't make hairdos like that anymore...
when i was a surly teenager obsessed with the cure, i would try to make my hair like that by stealing my sisters hairspray (or mousse), but i could never quite get it right. i never figured out the whole back-combing thing. actually, a few times i tried to do a complete "robert smith makeover", hiding in the bathroom, smearing my face with my mom's lipstick and eye shadow. to my horror (and i'm sure my family's horror as well), i discovered that make-up, especially when poorly applied, doesn't wash off very easily. i remember coming down to eat dinner with red stains all around my mouth... my parents worried about me a lot.
those were the good old days!
