1970s



                                               






The 1970s hairstyles were born out the hippie movement and leaned towards the natural look. Hair was long, infrequently big, but luxurious, as best exhibited by Farrah Fawcett's feathered look. Curlers were not often required, you certainly didn't go to bed in them, and the messy look was acceptable. Without the advantage of straightening irons, a clothing iron sometimes was required to highlight the best of long locks. You couldn't do it yourself, or you could risk scorching your treasure, after which your only option might be to convert to a shorter style. The fully-rounded Afro was a dominant look, worn by many cultures in support equal rights. The Shag was born along with the mullet for men.

Many still reminisce over the 1970s, thinking of the decade as a desirable destination for one's time machine, well at least, for television shows. The clothing and hairstyles of the 1970s combined creativity and insanity. Disco dancing became the lighter side of this serious decade. It started with the seemingly never ending Viet Nam War, and was forever branded by four slain protesters at Kent State University. Politics were rocky as the UN welcomed Communist China and booted out their Nationalist counterpart. The U.S. presidency slipped up with the Watergate scandal, George Wallace was shot, and we saw the first signs of Middle East Terrorism courting the world stage as eleven Israeli athletes were killed at the Munich Olympics. Nixon resigned to avoid impeachment and Gerald Ford stumbled into office. Israeli commandos freed 103 hostages from the airport in Uganda. Back home, prom photos became worthy of future Chuckle museums.

Two Popes passed away, the latter under mysterious circumstances. The Jones cult shocked everyone with their mass extinction in Guyana, and we saw the Soviets invade Afghanistan, an act that would eventually deplete their resources and preceded the next decade's downfall of Communism. We wonder if anyone can yet see the lesson. The household computer was on the brink of its world-changing arrival. The Internet was a mere twinkle in official eyes, and the biscuit-sized cell phone was an imaginary instrument relegated to the worlds of Dick Tracy and Star Trek. 15hqql.
