1960’s Hairstyles The Beatles invaded America with their long hair and the music began to change into a sound with British accents and Ringo Starr became a household word. The new look for rock bands was flowing tresses, but that didn’t stop Chubby Checker, Jackie Wilson or Stevie Wonder from still doing their own thing. President John Kennedy and wife Jacqueline were loved by all; as Jackie set the trend for fashion. Most of the time, she wore her hair touching her shoulders and flipping up with a pill box hat. Conservatively dressed, she wore skirts about an inch below the knees with a matching dressed top that came to the waist. Gloves would complete this class act image. Those who weren’t complete rebels of that era, would follow her lead and wear their hair in the stylish flip. The bubble came into fashion or otherwise known as the bouffant hairstyle. The hair was clipped shorter on the bottom and became longer as you worked your way up. The longest section was in the crown and top area for height. Everyone wanted height in the 1960s, thinking; that the more height they would have on the top of their head, the slimmer their body would look and there was only one way to accomplish this; and it was to backcomb the hair until all of the hair was like a birds nest close to the scalp. The term backcomb developed a slang name known as teasing, those who were in the profession would never say such a forbidden and unprofessional word. Beehives were seen at dances, as little ornaments of birds, bees, flowers or jewels were placed into the hive to bedeck this extravagant hairstyle. Kim Novak brought the French twist bouffant into being as we watched her on screen; with her smoky lavender hued blonde color. So sexy. This sixties hairstyle was quite simple to do, if you knew how to do it. If you are curious, here is some easy instructions for you: After rolling the hair all under in the back and on the sides, make a small part if desired and roll the top toward one side in the direction, you would like the hair to go, dry and brush out vigorously. Section off the top, sides and the crown. Begin on the bottom and backcomb the hair until most of the hair is setting close to the head. The proper way to backcomb is to take about an inch of hair while using your rattail comb. Hold the very top of this section out and slide your comb on the top and push gently down toward your scalp. Repeat this until all you have on top are a few fine strands. Spray with pure lacquer to make stiff. Take your brush and begin to smooth out the top hair shaft while brushing the hair over to the left of the head in the back. Place bobby pins up and down the center of that section and wind the hair over into a vertical roll and secure with hairpins. Spray again and go over with your hand to smooth the hair shaft. Now, you have all of the crown to do something with and you are going to begin taking one inch sections and backcombing just like you did the previous section. After you are done, take one layer at a time smoothing it over with your brush and begin placing it over about one-half or two inches of the French twist. The amount you decide to cover is a matter of personal preference. This also depends upon the length of the hair. Shorter hair will be more like a bubble(like Kim‘s), longer hair will be like a large roll. Fasten with hairpins. Follow this through as you lay each section over the other. Next Page Last Page
