The 1970s were a carefree time as we see here with these two teenagers. Boy's hair was fluffy and long and natural. Girl's hair was normally straight or slightly curled. Bangs were fashionable. These haircuts are obviously not in the quality range, but back then, it was difficult to find good stylists.

Real pictures from the 1970s help to see the what the feathered hairstyles looked like from that time. This young woman has shoulder length naturally golden blonde hair that is layered in such a way to resemble feathers down the sides. This was the hot hairdo of the 70s which got its inspiration from actress Farrah Fawcett of Charlies Angels. Either curling irons or hot rollers were used to help with the styling.

Typical teenage boys in the 70's wore their hair long and scruffy. These two cute guys just let their hair do its natural thing. The guy on the left had thick and wavy hair. The dude on the right had straighter hair so it feathered easier. Old man hats were worn sitting high up on the head with hair hanging down. Hmmm looks like we see young people doing this same thing now days. I wonder where they got that idea.

Teenage girls of the 70's wore sweaters with printed scenery and feathered hair. One teen girl has a straight version of this hairstyle and one has a curly version. The bangs were even parted and parts varied from in the middle to off center. Parts were very deliberate and even. That was the first thing one did before styling began. This is a fun photograph to see the retro fashions and decor.

The shag hairstyle began in the late 60's and was strong into the early 70's. This photograph was taken around 1970 and shows the hair and fashion that was hot during this time with men and women. This young woman's hairstyle has the typical hourglass shape that came from the transformation of the bouffant which was full and round on top. Then, the fringes of longer pieces that came down the neck and flipped up, just like the Florence Henderson hairdo from the Brady Bunch, made the shag just that.
