The Range of Afro Hairstyles for Black Men in the 1970s

Here's a set of pictures of the Afro hairstyle for men. These are commercial drawings of Afro styles in the 1970s, when this particular natural hairstyle was at its peak in terms of popularity.

The Afro hairstyles above are also combined with facial hair including mustaches and sideburns. Back in the 1970s, it was common for men to wear long mustaches (i.e. the cop mustache style) with long sideburns. This particular look is no longer trendy and instead, in terms of trendy facial hair, we have ever-so-popular hipster beard.

Here's the types of Afro hairstyles in the pictures:
The Professional
The Sportsman
The Duke
The Executive
The Prince
The 'fro
The Flattop
The Jet Setter
New Natural
The Perfecto
Private Eye
As hilarious as the names may sound to us in this day and age, you can bet that guys in the 1970s took their Afros seriously!
