A Gallery of Really Bad Men’s Hairstyles of the 1970s

Men’s 1970s hairstyles were a joy to behold. In the beginning, there was the hair. And some of the hair was bad, but it was small.

As men everywhere worked to improve and increase their lot, however, they stumbled onto some of humankind’s most miraculous innovations: spray, gel, mousse, crimping irons, and of course, the perm. With these new tools, people everywhere suddenly found themselves able to coax their lank, lifeless tresses toward glorious new heights.

There was a variation throughout the 1970s, from long to short, blow-dried and bouffant to spiked and bleached. Overgrown hair, whatever the style, is the look most people associate with the decade. Mustaches and mutton chops were in; even fake facial hair was worn and accepted. It was a hairy decade!
