Bouffant, Beehive and the Flip

During the 1960s, big hairdos for women were…big, and hair was literally teased into a large, rounded puff that rose high above the head. Bangs fell to the front or were swept to the side or back, while bottom ends were flipped inward or outward. Beehive hairdos went a step further by forming a tower made of hair on top of the head. Flip style hairdos were any style that featured the ends of the hair flipped upwards without moving. Yes, women used lots of hairspray to keep these styles looking fabulous all day long. Luckily, you can achieve the same results with our 1960s flip and beehive wigs.

Afros and Curls

African-Americans began embracing a natural hairstyle called the afro during the mid-1960s and this style exploded in popularity during the '60s and '70s. People from all cultural backgrounds enjoyed this iconic hairstyle. Growing out your "fro" and styling it with a pick was all a part of achieving and maintaining this cool hairdo. We have a great selection of afro wigs and afro-inspired curly wigs to wear with your hip costumes.

Bobs, Braids and Shags

Short bob cuts were chic during both decades, and you can have fun by selecting a bob cut wig in a range of fashion-forward colors. Also check out our wigs featuring long braids and shag cuts, another style worn by cool dudes everywhere.
