The bigger the hair, the closer to God.
Since the late 1950s, the styles worn by the rock and roll singers and popular bands of the era were embraced by lovers of the music. From this, teenagers developed their own street fashion.
This influence continued right through the 1960s, from the über-fashionable mods through to the psychedelic sounds of the later 1960s. There was a wide range of musical styles throughout the decade and this had a big impact on fashion and women’s 1960s hairstyles.
The 1960s saw the onset of a counterculture revolution, with accepted social norms in every realm from music to film. Slowly, the bouffants, pompadours and poodle cuts that reigned over the previous decade were replaced by more exaggerated, edgier hairstyles.
