Complex hair styles were ‘out’ in the 60’s. Many favored short, back-combed hairstyles that could be quickly styled & held in place with hair spray, with a long, feminine fringe. Women who left their hair long wore it loose or in a simple ponytail, with flowers or ribbons during the fashionable ‘hippy’ phase. Hair was kept simple, the emphasis being on natural, healthy looks. Blonde was the color & darker hair was often given highlights and the sun-kissed look.
