32 Vintage Photos Show Hippie Lifestyle in the Late 1960s and 1970s

A hippie is a member of the counterculture of the 1960s, originally a youth movement that began in the United States during the mid-1960s and spread to other countries around the world.

Hippies created their own communities, listened to psychedelic music, embraced the sexual revolution, and many used drugs such as marijuana and LSD to explore altered states of consciousness.

Hippie fashion and values had a major effect on culture, influencing popular music, television, film, literature, and the arts.

Take a look at these vintage photos to see what hippies looked like from the late 1960s and 1970s.

  2. And now that all these smelly hippies are Senators and Congressmen, they are destroying civilization with their liberal ideologies. They ignore thousands of years of human social history, and 60 years of the consistently increasing failure of their own efforts has taught them absolutely nothing.
    Ignorance is a lack of knowledge. It can be cured by gaining new information and learning from it. Stupidity is an inability to learn despite new information. It has no cure.

  3. Comments on the first two comments:

    7:04 AM: Every post about hippies on every site in the world should be accompanied by, "Cue right-wing rant beginning with obligatory reference to smell."

    12:17 AM: Yes, the admins of this site are Spanish. Their fascist-era dictator didn't kick off till after the hippie era had played out, and as with other things that went on out in the real world 1939-75, they tend to be both fascinated with it and vague about it.

  5. These photos exemplify the look of folks mostly in the late 60's through early 70's and not classified as Hippies. Too much generalization based on bias here with no real historical fact.
