The 80’s Comb

You thought this was going to be some fun post about 80s hairstyles [Robin, I'm lookin' at you], and oh, are you going to be disappointed. It’s a post about a comb. From the 80s. No, I am not kidding you. See, we were talking about 80s stuff at a girls’ night recently, and somehow […]
