A Collection Of Men's Hairstyles From The 1970s

(Video Link)

People made some bad style choices in the 1970s- leisure suits, Earth shoes, zippered and belted jumpsuits, and lemon yellow polyester slacks all come to mind as fairly common fashions that were fairly hideous.

But whether you escaped the decade fashionably unscathed, or you have a hideous Disco phase among the skeletons in your closet, chances are bad 70s style affected your look in one way- a bad hairstyle. We've all had our share of bad hair, but guys really got the short end of the stick during the 70s when it came to coiffures.

Seeing these bad hair pics will either make you appreciate your own hairstyle, or give you an idea for a new direction to take with your hairdo.

I agree Persephone, these are probably examples of the more stylin' dos of the day, but my dad was a musician throughout the 70s and 80s and a lot of his buddies were sporting these sweet styles, to go along with their rock and roll lifestyle I suppose. On my mom's side of the fam, however, it was all surfer waves, flat tops and bowl cuts clear into the 90s LOL

Having been a teenager then, I can say that I don't believe I ever saw anyone wearing their hair, except row 3, pictures 1 and 3 from the left. Most of the guys I was in schooll with wore variations on surfer hair: partially over the forehead, covering about half the ear or so, and mid-neck in back. Those are definitely photos from a hair styles magazine or book. If you watch the video, the second photo, the one with a pipe, is similar, but needs to be roughed up a bit.
