1973: MEN'S HAIR STYLES
I am hopelessly conservative when it comes to long hair. The Beatles, along with other participants in the "British invasion" of the 1960's, led to a complete social turn around in both music and male hair styles. Long hair was "in." Indeed, there were many barbers who gave up their profession as the normal traffic to their collective shops was severely curtailed by the arrival of the professional hair stylist. Gone was the low cost man's haircut in favor of the new and admittedly attractive look on the young man being groomed by Mr. Richards; an obviously talented hair stylist.
