How Hair has Shaped America
Jackie Kennedy set many fashion trends and hairstyles for the conservative groups She wore her hair shoulder-length with a flip. Many times she wore a pill box hat to finish off the look of confidence.
The younger generation didn’t want the conservative look but still wanted control. Teenage girls wore the bouffant hairstyle where the hair was high on their head but controlled with hairspray.
During this time people were protesting the Vietnam War and it was the time of the Woman’s Liberation Movement.
Women in the eighties would have huge teased hair. Women would blow dry, fluff, and crimp their hair. They would create big bangs, mohawks, and the 80s workout ponytail. Famous women in the 80s would be Jane Fonda, Jodie Foster, and Madonna.
