Look at all that hair! Fashion in the 1970s was all about the hair. When high school and college students went all out for their formal dances or homecoming courts, some of the women reverted back to the earlier bouffant styles for the special occasion, but most let it all hang out. You'd see long formal dresses, but there were also mini skirts, hot pants, and bellbottoms. For the guys, it was mainly rental tuxes, so the hair was what made you stand out. Unless you were already a star, like this popular athlete at the University of California Santa Barbara in 1970.
