30 School Portrait Photos That Defined Hairstyles of ’60s Teenage Girls

In the 1960s, hair became a statement, not just a style. Traditional hair, makeup, and clothing trends fell out of favor for more bold and experimental looks.

Without a hat to call attention to a woman’s head, 1960s hairstyles became a new focus for women in the Space Age. The bouffant look teased hair to new heights — literally. The flip, popular with teens, added the youthful girly look to the salon offerings. Short ’20s inspired bobs with guiche curls kissed her cheeks for another doll-like look.

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 off the 1970s.

Take a look at these vintage school photos to see what hairstyles for teenage girls looked like in the 1960s.
