Remember 2008? It was a momentous year for pop culture, giving us Katy Perry and the first Twilight movie. But when it came to fashion, we were blessed (?) with items we probably want to forget.

Big hair was a big trend, so these helped scrunch hair into an even more voluminous state around the crown.
