Whether you grew up in the ‘70s, ‘80s, or ‘90s, there are certain cultural references that instantly
transport you back to when you were younger. “Never Gonna Give You Up” or “Like a Virgin”;
Grease or Dirty Dancing; Fresh Prince or Full House- and, back way before DVRs allowed you
to fast-forward, TV commercials. We have the inside scoop on how to achieve looks from the
most unforgettable TV commercials of those decades- as well as modern-day products that will
help you relive that vintage magic.
