Hair length rose from shoulder to chin to cropped above the ears as the decade progressed, only to come crashing down again in the ’70s. In all, 1960s hairstyles took a wild ride ending with the natural look to kick of the 1970s.

Here below is a set of cool vintage photos that shows what hairstyles of women looked like in the 1960s.
