1960's Hair (White)

White women often kept their hair short during the 1960's. They mostly kept their hair at about shoulder length. However, they pinned it into an up-do when they were going out.

For a more casual look, girls and teens would wear their hair in ribbon headband or barrette, with the back of the crown ratted and the ends flipped up.

1960's Hair (Black)

  • Natural black hair textures are usually very curly and kinky

  • Black women would usually wear their hair in an afro puff. But with the invention of the relaxer system, they were able to wear their hair straight and flowing. African American women also used a hot comb to make their hair straight. They wore their hair in many different styles like cornrows, and and short styles. They also wore wigs.
