Oh, boy…

No, these are not mug shots of the most wanted criminals from the 1970s—though the confusion is quite understandable, considering how these hirsute models could have probably been successfully prosecuted for crimes against good taste—no, these are genuine head shots of once fashionable hairstyles from the 1970s, and I’m sure a few of us can recognize ourselves here… I know I can.

You see, back in the 1970s, unless you opted for a standard short-back-and-sides, your local barber might attempt these cuts on your unsuspecting hair follicles. As you can imagine, these fashion travesties had names like “The Wolfman,” “The Caveman,” “The Psycho,” “The-weird-guy-in-the-kiddie-pool,” “The Gerry Helmet” (for obvious reasons…), “The creep-from-the-accounting-department,” “The Robert Helpmann” (aka “The Child Catcher”), “The Great Masturbator” (evidentallly a Dali-inspired surrealist coif) and, of course, “The Brian Connolly”!

The trauma of having one of these haircuts inflicted on your person could last well into adulthood. Ah, the Seventies—a decade rich in music, film, comedy, and television, but utterly rife with naff fashion.
