Working Girl (1988)
The Haircut: Attack of the ‘80s! Joan Cusack and Melanie Griffith get out the hairspray and backcomb until it looks like they’ve been dragged through a bush backwards. A lot.
Weirdest Detail: The hair we can handle in a surely-they’re-being-ironic kind of way. But, Joan… shoulder pads?
Does It Work? Only as a threat – hold a live flame near that pile of hair-sprayed curls while screaming “I’m going to do it!” and you’ll clear the room in a New York minute.
