Portrait Photos Defined Hairstyles of American Young Men in the 1970s
Men’s hair was rocked long until the mid-1970s when everything changed following the hippie lifestyle. As opposed to the shaggy haircuts of the ’60s, most ’70s men’s haircuts were styled with soft and long layers.
For instance, in most states in America, the tousled blond and surfer haircuts were considered quite stylish and popular among little boys and young men. Sideburns were also very popular but were mostly worn by grown-up guys.
These vintage photos were taken by John L. Beck that show hairstyles of American young men in the 1970s. Most of these men are his friends from Ellicott City, Maryland.
