Home and Away fans have gone wild over the ‘classic’ episodes that are now available to stream on 7Plus. One particular screenshot of Emily Symons as Marilyn Chambers has caused fans to do a double take with her ‘unrecognisable’ appearance.
The soap is on a summer break, and viewers are currently turning to the ‘classic’ episodes to pass the time before the 2023 return. However, some of the hairstyles from the late 80s and early 90s have left fans ‘cringing’.
Since her debut in May 1989, Marilyn’s appearance has undergone a full transformation, and a vintage photo posted to a popular Facebook page has revealed just how enormous her 80s-inspired hairstyle actually was.
She had a large haircut that was compared to a “mop” by fans, huge pearl earrings, and dramatic makeup on her face.
She wore an eye-catching, leopard print shirt and has eyebrows that are pencil thin, reflecting the style of the day.
I adore Marilyn’s hair in these vintage Home and Away episodes. Just wished I didn’t become so emotionally attached in each episode,” the group member stated in the caption.
It’s challenging since there are always new people and plotlines because each episode airs around a year after the last one you watched. But I still adore it!!
Fans found the snap hilarious, with the majority of people commenting on her hair.
“Did somebody lose their mop?” quipped a group member, with another adding: “I bet she cringes when looking back at those ‘do’s.”
“She looks much better now lol,” remarked a fan.
“Back then though big hair was in and everyone had fluffy hair,” a fourth pointed out. “Yep, no one ‘ironed’ their hair then. It was the time of mousse and gel. Think Effie,” a fan agreed.
With 7945 episodes broadcast to date, 7Plus hasn’t uploaded the entire back catalogue of Home and Away, which hasn’t exactly pleased viewers.
One fan expressed disappointment, saying, “I wish they’d put all of [the episodes] up, not just some.”
“Me too! A second said, “I always want to know what happens in the next episode.
Another person added, “Once I found them, I couldn’t stop watching; my son is tired of me watching all these old episodes and crying when the characters go.
