1967 saw the onset of a counterculture revolution, with accepted social norms in every realm from music to film to fashion being challenged and re-written. Below, see our list of the 50 most memorable hairstyles of 1967 from the Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Fashion & Hair Archives, and how they influenced and were influenced by the popular culture of the decade.
Hairdressers created a few styles during the decade that were copied by many. Some can even still be seen today, albeit with a modern update. Like fashion, hairstyles can make their mark on the 1967 year.
Women’s Hairstyles of Year 1967
From the Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Fashion & Hair Archives: Mere months ago, the hair fashion picture was decidedly foggy. There were more questions than answers, more could be than is. Would hair be very short-or down to there? Would the news-makers be bouncing with curls or straight as a stick? O Now, it’s all come beautifully clear and the answer is: yes! Yes to curly, yes to straight. Yes to long, and too super-short.
Yes, in fact, to everything that’s swingy, shining, pretty. Top news, of course: the mini cuts — those precisely scissored, intriguingly boyish little dos that can make a girl look about as girlish as can be (worn, of course, with a make-up plan that’s strictly female). But long, long locks are one of the Now looks, too: worn loose and swinging, or twirled and curled. And some classics — the pageboy, for one — have made a comeback! In sum: the Now look can be the look you like now — any one of the exciting styles you’ll find in this book—so long as it’s done with flair, with care, with hair that’s in absolutely optimum condition.

R. Keith ribbon-ties long tresses flip the ends, furls curls at the crown-then, for a new look, sweeps all the hair up, adds a sprinkle of forget-me-not sprigs.
Three ways with a lip.
Paris stylist Serge Simon starts here with a meticulous cut, a simple setting-and demonstrates what a bit of deft brushwork can do. First flip, a slick one-smoothed over the crown, controlled, drawn up to a crest at the back. Next, a dip at the temple, the flip fluffed up and forward in a feathery ruff around the back. Finally, the flip becomes a deep flounce of curls framing the face.
Three ways with a pageboy.
Now see how a classic casual coiffure can change its mind to change its mood, with just a few little brushstrokes creator of this pretty plan, R. Keith. First, brushing in the lines of the set ends folded under, drift over the brow. Then, a new and higher parting, a sleeking of the sides, guiches drew out on the cheeks.

Score four for a blonde. Casual? Prom-pretty? A sportive air? Whatever your hairdo aim, chances are your mood is captured among these styles created from one set by Enny of Italy for Caryl Richards. The cut: a single length all around; the set: all rollers, perfectly symmetrical. The styles: side-parted, a classic flip; or, curls furled to one side; or, top and sides tied up in a demi-ponytail; or, a center-parted smoothie.
Take one head of dark, silky, shining hair; scissor to a versatile chin length; set simply but very carefully. Result: a whole wardrobe of hair-dos.

The first step is understanding our setting diagrams (then, if you like, you can vary the set). Arrows on rollers indicate rolling direction. Tight circles (A) stand for small, compact clip curls, open circles (B) for larger ones. In (C) you see stand-up clip curls; (D) shows guiches held with tape.
After shampooing, towel-dry and comb till smooth; then apply setting lotion and comb through. Next, part off enough for the first roller (A, B).
Comb through the roller section and hold it straight out, at a slight angle opposite to the rolling direction. Wrap endpaper around ends (A) unless you’re using a brush or “magnetic” rollers. Roll slowly, smoothly (B), using a comb (C) if needed to smooth. Fasten with clip (D) at scalp side, with a pick (E) at the angle shown, or with self fastener. If using clips, a clip holding two rollers (F) keeps them firmly aligned.
Regular clip curls make close waves or clingy curls. Comb smooth, then curve into a circle with fingers (A, B), place in position; fasten with clip (C), keeping curl open. For a looser curl, use rat-tail to shape (D); clip (E), being sure ends are secured.
When you see a set with bangs neither rollerset nor clip-curled (as page 58, C), you have a choice; the experiment will tell you what’s best for your hair. Do apply setting lotion. Then just comb in place. Or, comb in place and tape (A, B). Or, shape over a thick wad of cotton (C) held by clips. They’re shaped like miniature rollers. “Roll” with fingers (A, B), clip-on the underside, near scalp (C).
A cheek curl can go forward (guiche type) or back-turned (a wave or dip); either way, there are two ways to set it (no matter what the diagram indicates, choose the one that works best for you). You can use a clip, in the standard clip-curl manner (A), shown step by step on page 60. If your hair curls very easily, or if what you want is a very big curve, try the comb-and-tape method (B).
