Lil' Blonde Darling: Janet Gardner!

Blonde Beauty Icon Janet Gardner

Get out your Aqua-net and a teasing comb....and brace yourself for some of the most epic Hair Metal glaMOUR courtesy of Janet Gardner, the lead singer of all-girl Glam Metal band Vixen! All the girls were fabulous and made some killer hair and fashion choices....but Janet is my favorite! The band made a name for themselves on LA's Sunset Strip during the mid-80's and gained a large local following. In 1988 they were signed to EMI and released their self-titled debut album, which featured their signature hit single Edge of a Broken Heart. They toured the world as supporting act for some of the major players of the era: Ozzy, The Scorpions, KISS and Bon Jovi and in 1990 released their second album, Rev It Up. By 1991, the band had split as interest in LA Hair Metal had been eclipsed by Seattle-based Grunge. Hey, a flannel and some Docs are all well and good, but can they really compete with leather bustiers, lace stockings, animal print spandex, fringe trim, chains, studded belts and ripped acid wash, high waisted denim? Nope!
