In the sixties, fashions were being propelled by the music world. Every
teenager had a portable radio and would listen to their favorites groups and
solo artists as much as humanly possible. Then they would buy their albums
and imitate their styles. Once again fashions were promoting a cute
look, with singers who were sweet and talented -- Brenda Lee, Little
Peggy Marsh, even Teresa Brewer was still around from the Fifties. The
hair was big and getting bigger. Styles were competing to escape the
old looks that had inhabited the forties and fifties. It was a
teenage-driven fashion world that saw hula hoops and The Twist taking
center stage. Our big-haired fashion bunny is a teenage high school
Queen. Forty years later, the teen Princesses would be leading the
revolution again, but here in the sixties, they were pure and
intelligent -- no sleazy bimbos prancing around in contrived dance
routines showing their belly buttons. The hairstyle showed the fullness
of the young woman's femininity and fertility. This was a healthy,
happy generation that had possessions and medical facilities that were
making them all grow bigger and stronger. Dark clouds on the horizon
were still a few decades away.
