The title of this post is not 100% accurate: this 1983 portrait of Madonna was taken by Richard Corman in her brother’s Manhattan apartment. But I’m pretty sure the can of Aquanet Super-Hold hairspray was hers.
There’s a box of Coty Airspun loose face powder and a can of Aquanet all-purpose hairspray on the floor in Nancy’s bedroom.
There’s a can of Aquanet hairspray on Vera Miles’ dressing table.
In Cozy’s bathroom there are a can of Aquanet unscented super-hold hairspray and a jar of Clinique 7th-day scrub cream.
The jar with pink cap is a Christian Dior skincare product, probably the Hydra-Star moisturizer or a cream from the original Capture line. The two jars between the hairspray and the scrub are – I’m pretty sure – Estee Lauder products.
She uses a Maybelline eyelash curler.
Elise Elliot (Dina Spybey) is a glamourous graduate who would later become an award-winning actress. On her busy dressing table there’s a spray can of Aqua Net hairspray.
The two hairsprays on Debbie’s dressing table are VO5 Crystal Clear and Aquanet Super Hold (old lettering).
The yellow jar near the hairspray cans is Skin Softener body lotion of Avon Timeless.
There’s a can of Aquanet unscented super-hold hairspray on Bobby’s dressing table. The silver-ish bottle on its left reminds me of Halston perfume, which would be really appropriate, since Bobby has just done a beautiful performance in drag as Liza Minnelli, one of the most famous Halstonettes.
Backstage at Queen Mary’s strip club, a can of AquaNet extra super hold hairspray makes its appearance.
Sally (Meg Ryan) uses Aqua Net all-purpose hairspray.
When Big Kurt Jackson and Chavo barge into the girls’ dressing room to complain about Carmen’s moves (stolen from her brothers), Debbie (Betty Gilpin) acts as peacemaker. In the screencap above, Tammé (Kia Stevens) is holding a can of Aqua Net hairspray; on the glass shelf by the washbasin there’s Maybelline Great Lash mascara.
