Do You Fancy ’70s Hairstyles? Groove Is In The Heart!

70s hairstyles

If I asked you which are the most famous ’70s hairstyles, which ones would you think of? I can think at least a dozen of them! Quite a lot for one decade, don’t you think?

(ok, I finally made it to 16 hairstyles! I have them all together below in the slider!)

Oh, no dear, I don’t have a personal experience! Ok I’m old…but not that old!

Over the decades, we have seen so many images of women in movies, music, fashion, politics that really had a strong impact in the 1970s.

These women influenced other women with their style and eventually became icons over the course of time. Like Farrah Fawcett, Debbie Harry, Donna Summer, Jane Fonda, Marsha Hunt.

The ’70s was a transformative era in so many levels.

Different subcultures of hippies, rockers and rebels were all blended together and inevitably gave strong influences to almost every aspect of lifestyle, including fashion and hairstyles.

Women wanted to break free from everything that felt limiting, so they decided that excessive hair teasing and hairspray were dead to them.

Just remember that teasing and hairspray were the king and queen of the ’60s! And don’t forget men also started to grow mustaches and beards. Now we think it’s just trendy, but back then this was really revolutionary.

The ’70s hairstyles expressed a lifestyle of freedom & rebel. 

People, especially women, wanted to project themselves as independent, happy and carefree personas.

During the late ’60s and early ’70s the Flower Power movement emerged from the opposition to the Vietnam War. Their protests were defined by their non-violence ideology and expressed their passive resistance.

Can anyone ever forget John Lennon’s song “Give peace a chance” ?

Also the women’s rights movement took a prominent role within society. 

They fought against oppressive laws and sexism, demanded social equality and free access to legal abortion. Feminism reached more women than ever before. They even succeeded in surpassing men in college enrollment at the end of the ’70s!

November 13, 1974 – This is the first all-female NASA crew of scientific experimenters. We can definitely understand how the feminist movement, women taking high positions professionally and having short hair, were all connected at that time!

By the 1970s, the world was entering for good the hippies’ bohemian era. The more structured hairstyles of the 1960s were left aside and a more natural way of styling the hair was considered sexy.

The hippy look had its influence on most ’70s hairstyles!

The ’70s was the era of hippy long hair, either straight and sleek or in a slightly wavy natural look, disco afro curly hair or feathered flips and rock androgynous haircuts. The hairdryer was the master tool to achieve the styling techniques of the hairstyles or that period (and an iron for clothes….!)

Wear A ’70s Hairstyle In 16 Different Ways!

Although 1970s was the era of the disco wedge, glam rock, afro curly styles and feathered flip, the hippie influences were much stronger, thereby many women let their hair grow naturally. They also used many accessories like headbands, scarves, flowers, boho jewels and hats.

Do you love the ’70s looks or do you find them bizarre and unappealing? Have you tried any of these hairstyles?

To You With Love.
