Vintage guitar ads featuring hot chicks with big hair

Vintage ad for B.C. Rich guitars 1989.
Today’s post from yours truly is going to take you on a trip down memory lane to a time when magazines were the main communication device for rock and roll. Though some great rock oriented print magazines do still exist, for at least four decades from the 60s through the 90s magazines were what you spent your money on so you could be sure to get the recommended daily amount of rock and roll information, get fan club info, and pull out centerfolds of a young David Lee Roth to hang on your wall—right next to whatever else covered up the ugly wallpaper in the room you spent your teenage years in.

If you’re a guitar loving gearhead and also a fan of girls, then you’re going to get an especially good kick out of the images in this post that feature the famous “Dean Girls” who helped sell guitars for Dean in a series of ads in the late 70s and 80s, as well as some racy images used by B.C. Rich. All of the images in the post have pretty consistent themes that include bikinis, big 80s hair and lots of skin. Oh, and there’s guitars too. Though there’s really nothing particularly risqué about a girl in a bikini holding a guitar, some of the images are probably NSFW. YAY!

Aria Pro II ad.

‘The higher the hair, the closer to God’: Glorious BIG hair from the 1960s
11:33 am


big hair

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.
