You could safely say that a lot happened in the 1960s. It was also an interesting time for hair. In the U.S., there was a big stylistic divide between the early part of the decade and the countercultural movement that dominated the second half. Take a peek at yearbook photos from 1962 and from 1968, and you’ll see what we mean. Not surprisingly, the early ‘60s looked a lot like the ‘50s, with bouffant hairdos and crewcuts all over the place. Things loosened up quite a bit in a few short years, though.
We’re still kind of wishing that the beehive would make a comeback.
