New looks for "Stranger Things" cast in season 2

Watching Stranger Things — especially for those who came of age during the 80s — is like being transported back in time. The Netflix series is so rich with pop culture references it’s enough to make your head spin (or at the very least dig out your old yearbooks and have a good laugh at how comically large your bangs were). Sure, these kids are ultimately trying to save the town and people they love, but they’re also trying to figure out how to be teenagers, which in this bygone era mostly means getting a makeover! So, in honor of this iconic trope, check out how each star transformed for the show’s latest season.
