‘The higher the hair, the closer to God’: Glorious BIG hair from the 1960s


 
I was going to make this post about big, teased-up hair and how they should bring it back. Then I remembered how many times in the near past people have tried to bring big hair back. Most of the time, IMO, very poorly. The only two I can think of who were really able to pull it off in “modern times” were Michelle Mae (when she was in The Make-Up) and, of course, Amy Winehouse. Other than those two, it’s a look that looks kind of forced on everyone else.

That being said, I had a good time finding photos of big ol’ hair from the 1960s and a few from the early-‘70s. As they say, “The higher the hair, the closer to God.” I believe that with a few of these towering backcombed coiffs.
