Perhaps one of the more regretful features of the internet is that once something is there, it’s there forever. Embarrassing or not, you, friends, family and millions upon millions of strangers will see them until the end of time. And they can remind you of it in a matter of seconds by reaching into their pocket and whipping out their phone

But decades ago, after shakin’ that polaroid picture and organizing it in a scrapbook, you could have tucked it away in a secret place, never to be found again. Or you just just set it on fire. Yes, times were simpler then.

That’s good for you because all those haircuts you tried to replicate from your favorites in the music biz weren’t very flattering. Here are a few of them that you wish you had then but are REALLY happy you didn’t now.
