Evolution of Hairstyles: 1970's-1980's

Hairstyles have constantly been changing as well as clothing since the beginning of fashion! I'll show you the hottest trends in American hair from the 1910's up to the 2000's. After the new millennium, hairstyles have merged and been reused from older times so I won't include them. Here are the best examples...

The 70's


In the 70's have was thick, voluminous, and wavy. Flippy bangs and feathered hair was definitely in than. Check out Farrah Fawcett's hair do. Bangs were a hot trend in the 70's whether they were straight or flipped out. Straight hair in braids or pigtails were a common style. Afros for men and women were a great hit in the African American youth's culture and fashion. Accessories for these hairstyles would be flowers like Minnie Riperton in her "Loving You" music video. 

The 80's
Brace yourselves, you are about to experience one of the wildest decades of hair! Mullets for men and women were very popular, and dyed hair became extremely popular in the 80's. Side ponytails were an awesome way to get crazy! Teased hair was great for creating volume in limp hair and crimping hair was also very rad! Madonna showed a perfect example of 80's hair back then. The perfect accessory in the 80's would be scrunchies and neon clips and bands.
