  • Hairstyle Fashions

    Was it fashionable for (non punk rocker or mod revival) men in the UK to have shoulder length hair from the early 1970s to the early 1980s?

    Just interested.

    I'm bit young to remember but I think so, unless it was just for footballers, actors, singer etc.

          Quite a few people (famous or otherwise) had long hair back then; some even still having their hair long now

          Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

            I don't know I would go as late as the early 80s, but in the early-mid 70s younger men wore their hair longer. SitComs would often use the joke of a man with long hair seen from the back being mistaken for a girl.

              I lived thru the 70s with long hair and a beard. Bit hippyish I suppose you would say with the floral shirts and garish flaired pants.

                I am kinda embarrassed to write this. But in the mid to late 80s it became fashionable for men to have their hair permed. Yes. Permed like a woman. Believe it or not. It was all the go and the chicks really went for it. I recall the first time I had it done..sitting in the hairdresser chair for hours while the perm was applied. Hoping all the time my mates would not come in.

                  Kevin Keagan and Mick "Magpie" Robertson were both famous for their perms, and Richard Beckinsale was famous for his long hair - and Little Jimmy Osmond didn't exactly sing about himself being a short-haired lover...

                  I would be more embarrassed if I was bald and had no hair.

                    Keagan was a Liverpool soccer player? Richard was Kates father? Not heard of Mick Robertson.

                      Robertson was a children's TV presenter here in Britain.

                        Fur was at its best in the 1980s, before PETA came in and (rightly) declared that we were all murderers. It's great to live in a world of cultural greed and trashy modern money comfort. Faux fur coats with full linings should be a winter wardrobe must-have.
                        According to Textile Styles, clothing in the 1960s was about bending conventional fashion rules, while clothing in the 1970s was about making comparisons. The fashion of the 1970s is focused on glam rock and disco influences. Tie-dye prints, fringe, and farmer tops were all common hippie fashions in the 1960s.

                          It also includes big hoodies and lose shirts with beggy style pants.
