Stranger Things S02E09 (The Gate)


strangerthings_s02e09_1_bornunicornSteve Harrington is now the male role model Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) needs in his life. He’s also his style icon, too: he uses the boy’s secret weapon – Fabergé Farrah Fawcett hairspray – to impress the attendees of the Snow Ball at school.


farrahfawcetthairspray1_bornunicornLet me be pedantic for a moment here: I don’t think the can Dustin is using is the original one. If you look closely, the writing on it is different from the writing on the original can. So they took the writing of the non-aerosol version and put it on the aerosol one. Good job!

Stranger Things S02E08 (The Mind Flayer)

strangerthings_s02e08_bornunicorn-1.pngBilly Hargrove (Dacre Montgomery) is the bad boy par excellence in this season. He hates everybody, is rude to everybody but loves himself. A lot. The glimpse we get of his dressing table reveals interesting products he uses as part of his beauty routine.


He uses the same AquaNet hairspray Kali and Dottie use on Eleven in S02E07.


He also has a bottle of Breckset setting lotion.


The third hair product he has in his bedroom is Alberto styling mousse.

The fragrance he uses is Paco Rabanne Pour Homme after shave, created by Jean Martel and launched in 1973.


On his dresser there’s also a bottle of Aramis by Estee Lauder, a perfume created by Bernard Chant and launched in 1966. The choice is historically accurate but I feel Aramis is a bit too conservative for a rebel like Billy.

Thanks to Ladiesofthepast for the Paco Rabanne id.

Steve finally shares the routine behind his lovely hairstyle.

fabergeorganics_wheatgermoilandhoneyshampoo_bornunicornThe first name he drops is Fabergé Organics, a haircare line on the market in the 1970s and 1980s.

vlcsnap-2017-10-31-01h11m11s249He’s consistent, because he uses shampoo and conditioner from the same line.

farrahfawcetthaircarebyfaberge_bornunicornAfter all, no wonder the line of haircare products that Fabergé launched in the late 1970s was this popular: the “Angel” it was named after was hugely famous for her beauty and her trademark feathered hairstyle.

Stranger Things S02E04 (Will the Wise)



ponds_dryskincream_bornunicornThere are several toiletries in Will’s bathroom: among them, an Avon bath oil and a Pond’s cream jar on the window sill. A couple of words on the Avon bottle: it’s impossible to know what Skin So Soft scented oil it contains, because the same bottle was used for different scents (Elusive, Bird of Paradise, To a Wild Rose and more).

Stranger Things S02E01 (MADMAX)

avonthimblebottle_bornunicornThere’s an Avon cologne in the bathroom at Barb’s house. It’s unclear what cologne it is, since Avon used the same bottle (the thimble one, in this case) for different scents. Elusive, Bird of Paradise and Charisma colognes were all sold in this golden stopper bottle.

Thanks to my friend Jennifer for the id.
