    • 70′s

      Feathered hair with bangs, shoulder length for guys. Anglo fros for those with curly hair (sometimes called “jewfro”), along with the standard “Afro” for those with the hair. Fros common for men and women. Bulky mustaches, beards common. Young women had long, single length hair in the early 70′s, while older women still work bouffants and wigs until the mid 70′s. Casual, layered crops came in the mid 70′s, fairly androgynous. Feather banks came during the “Disco era”.

      Polyester clothing with distorted proportions and exaggerated mixes of earth colors with psychedelic colors and prints..for instance, lime green with burnt orange…or deep red with brown.
      Bulky clothing..pant suits common for men and women, with big lapels/collars and bell bottoms or at the very least, flare legged. casual neck scarf common. Head scarf common in casual setting for women (pre-folded triangular stitched headscarf with a padded headband was a common accessory for women in the 70′s). Women officially abandoned the skirt as official public attire, replacing with dress slacks as standard, skirts as novelty. Animal prints, tribal and tropical motifs were popular, along with oddly colored plaids, damask and residual 60′s paisley.

      Plastic shoes, plastic handbags, plastic clothes, plastic dishware, plastic furniture.

      Makeup :
      Earth tones or no makeup in the early 70′s changing to pastel/neon mix in the late 70′s. The Bowie/glam era inspired the fashion industry to be more “gay” friendly.

      Mullets, spikes, layered hair, skater hair (emo today) hair gel and stiffener for “high hair” that was common. Jeri Curls were popular for African Americans until better, safer product for hair straightening came out. Usual punk styles, but more casualized for everyday people. Exaggerated androgynous styles came to a height in the 80′s. All the hairstyles mentioned for the 80′s, including the “Bob” could apply to both men and women.

      Androgynous peak. Oversized blazers with fold-up sleeves worn with a dress shirt and blue or black jeans was probably the most worn public outfit for men and women alike. The “Robin Hood” look was also common for younger girls, (an over-sized shirt, sweater or straight mini dress accenting the figure only with a belt, worn with tights or stretch-pants and medieval boots)
      Subcultures galore started in the 80′s, such as goth, punk, jock, preppie, headbanger, hair metal, ect, Each had their own wardrobe (and yes, inspired many of today’s performers). Bows in hair were popular all through the 80′s, though the size varied year by year. Rubber Shoes called “Jellies” were worn by girls until about 1986. lace for girls, lace shirts with undershirts. Blazers with lace undershirt, etc. Net clothing for both genders, with and without under/overwear. The colors were often a mix of pastel and neons, with accents of solid black and white. Print motifs were often pop art, geometric, futuristic, cartoonish, abstract and disjointed. Stripes and polka dots were often mixed in the same outfit. Accessories such as plastic neon bracelets, leg warmers, lace gloves and that new thing called the fanny pack were common sights. Drop waist dresses were common in the late 80′s. Neon tribal print knee length shorts with OP T-shirts were pretty much the uniform for skater dudes. Pointed shoes were also common, as well as pastel high tops. But most notably, jeans, jeans, jeans.

      Like clothes, pastel mix with neon on natural base becoming more earth tone and casual “goth” toward the end of the decade. More men were wearing makeup than before in modern society.

      In a nutshell, the 70′s were more of an earthy, stoner form of tackiness, while the 80′s managed to mix corporate industrial aesthetics with psychedelics galore.

  2. Do I have the ability to grow the beard I want?
    I am of African American descent, and am 20 years old. I currently only have a soul patch on my face, along with dreadlocks. The rest of my face is clean shaven due to the fact everytime I let my facial hair grow it looks terrible, hair actually grows on my upper cheek area more than the lower cheek area. When I had a mustache it never connected with my goatee so I just decided to shave them both off because to me they looked horrible. ”

    My ideal facial hair style would be the hair going from sideburn to sideburn around my face, and then my mustache and goatee connecting together, something like this


  3. How do women that have a lot of facial hair remove it during Basic Military Training?
    I have a lot of facial hair on my chin. Also, I have a thin mustache and eyebrows that need to be groomed. I have so much facial hair that plucking it is very time consuming. Time that, in Basic Military Training, I do not have. Since women that have a lot of facial hair is not a disqualification and facial hair is not allowed in the Armed Forces. How do women control their facial hair during basic military training? I know one woman that took tweezers with her, but that is not an option for me. I also read that some TI’s won’t let you use the razors that are provided for you to groom leg and under arm hair. Since I am an African American shaving and tweezing causes ingrown hairs. It is a struggle dealing with it every normal day, I can’t imagine what I’m going to do during BMT. Someone, please help the bearded lady realize her dreams of joining the Armed Forces. I really don’t want to ask a recruiter this question face to face. Thank you

    • I think you just have to shave like us men do. The military does not care about style, just function.

    • It is secondary sex characteristic in human males. Most men develop facial hair in puberty. Many women also have some facial hair, especially after menopause, though typically much less than men. Eyebrows and eyelashes are also grown by both sexes of all ages.

      Male pogonotrophy (the growing of facial hair; beardedness) is often culturally associated with wisdom and virility. Many men style their facial hair into beards, moustaches, goatees or sideburns. However, many others completely shave their facial hair. A man’s facial hair, especially short hairs that were missed in shaving, is often referred to as whiskers, although only certain nonhuman mammals have true sensory whiskers.

      Women typically have little hair on their faces, apart from eyebrows and the fine fuzz nearly all people have covering most of their bodies. However, a few women have noticeable facial hair growth. Excessive hairiness (especially facially) is known as hirsutism, and is usually an indication of abnormal hormonal variation, or even abnormality. In contemporary western culture, almost all women shave, tweeze or otherwise depilate facial hair which does appear, as there is considerable social stigma associated with facial hair in women. Freak shows and circuses once displayed (usually fake) bearded women.
      Abraham Lincoln was said to have grown a beard because a little girl wrote him that he would look better with one.
      Abraham Lincoln was said to have grown a beard because a little girl wrote him that he would look better with one.

      The amount of facial hair on a man’s face varies from individual to individual, and also between ethnic groups. For example, men from many East Asian, West African or Native American backgrounds typically have much less facial hair than those of European, Middle Eastern or South Asian descent, with Native Americans typically having little to none at all. Middle Easterners, northern East Asians, and Eastern Africans can grow copious amounts of facial hair.

  6. Why do older aged African American people in the black community hate to see young black men with long hair?
    I am a young black guy and im 22.

    Why do older aged African American people in the black community hate to see young black men with long hair?

    Ande what i mean is that older aged black people who are aged in their 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, 70′s 80′s and 90′s to 100 hate to see a young black man wearing his hair in a afro or braids or dreads.

    But older black poeople love and rejoice when they see a young black man like me with a low clean haircut and a trimmed mustache and beard or clean shaved face.

    I have experienced other older black people specifically my parents who hate to see me wear my hair in any style than a low close to the scalp clean haircut .

    • I hate going to the hair dresser and I have to wait an hour for a black boy to get his hair braided. Thats how I know you have no professional job.
