60s Hairstyles: Our 5 Favorites!

Swinging sixties

Anyone thinking of sixties hairstyles quickly has pictures of hippie girls, Audrey Hepburn, and teasing concrete hairstyles with bangs on their heads. We introduce you to the hottest hairstyles from the 1960s and explain how you can easily recreate them!


From Beehive to Bouffant: The ’60s Hairstyles We Love

In the 1960s, very different hairstyles were in vogue. From the cheeky short pixie haircut to the long hippie bob, everything could be found on women’s heads. Many styles are still easy to wear today (even without a theme party invitation). Here are our top five typical hairstyles from the 1960s:

# 1 hippie

Natural waves, a headband and the hippie look is ready!

Leather headband, white tunic dress and then beautiful long natural waves in your hair – almost nothing can be remade as fast as the hippie hairstyle. Can be worn with a center part or bangs. You can also wear sunglasses with round lenses as the perfect complement. Peace! By the way, the look has also inspired many hairstyles from the 70s.

# 2 hive

The Beehive hairstyle is still iconic today! Wearing a classy hairstyle like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, that’s it!

Audrey Hepburn’s Beehive updo is still iconic today!

We tell you how you can easily change the style of the hive:

  1. First, scoff at your approaches.
  2. Then divide a wide section of the forehead.
  3. Next, gather the rest of your hair and form a bun that you pin on the top of your head.
  4. Now comb a strand of pony to one side and wrap it around the bun.
  5. Lastly, apply a large amount of hairspray to your hair, and voila!

You can also wear a colored headband to attract attention.

# 3 mushroom head mod

The mushroom head was popular with mods.

Not only can the Beatles rock a mushroom look good, bob hair women look good too. Typical of this short haircut is the round cut hair combined with long bangs. In terms of style, it doesn’t take much effort: The soft mane is simply blow-dried with a round brush and individual strands, if necessary, are set with a little hair wax and voila. This adds volume to the look and a clean finish.

The mushroom head has its origin in the so-called mods, an English subculture to which bands such as The Who and The Kinks also belonged. Even if mods weren’t averse to sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll, unlike punks, they always attached great importance to stylish and elegant clothing. The mod short haircut also exudes this feminine elegance!

# 4 pixie

Naughty, naughty, pixie!

The pixie cut became known among other things through the model Twiggy. Different hair lengths are characteristic of this 60s hairstyle: most of the time, the hair at the back of the head and on the sides is very short, but the bangs are longer. A pixie is versatile and can look stylish and edgy. In the sixties, the short haircut stood out from the crowd and demonstrated strength, independence, and self-confidence. The cut is still popular today.

# 5 Bouffant

Bouffant is derived from the Italian word bouffante and means something like to inflate or inflate something, and the name is no coincidence!

Teasing was in!

Thanks to the hairspray and comb *, style icons like Brigitte Bardot and Jackie Kennedy literally had their hair stand on end. There is not much to explain in terms of style: The hair is simply teased, pinned at the back of the head with bobby pins, set with hairspray and the sleek Sixites look is done! As a modification, only parts of the top hair and the rest of the open hair can be teased.

And what do I wear?

The ’60s hairstyle lasts thanks to some cans of hairspray, but are you still missing the right outfit? If you want to dress in the style of the sixties, you should look for high neck jumpers, drawstring mini skirts or shift dresses in your closet. Plus, knee-length boots are paired with a stylish houndstooth print coat. You can’t get more than sixty!
