Turning the clocks back to 1998, 20 years ago, an individual walking the halls of EHS
would find students adorned in an array of clothing: blue jeans and T-shirts, baggy
jeans matched with loose- tting shirts, and even jeans that are out at the bottom.
Along with this, previously bland tennis shoes took on a “brighter” and “more exciting”
look while other shoes with high heels or thick soles became the trend among Eaton’s students.

 

30 years ago in 1988, various hairstyles ruled the fashion scene including bowl cuts, mullets, and especially perms. It almost did not matter who you were: perms were rampant in the halls of EHS.

 

Back in 1978, 40 years ago, the Farrah Fawcett hairstyle reigned in the halls of EHS. Farrah Fawcett, the famous American model, artist and actress, made this once-iconic style all the rage in the 70’s. As well as this, perms were very popular among students at Eaton High School.
