Every decade has new hairstyles that come into fashion before quickly leaving again. While these hairstyles might once have been the height of style, looking back on them you wonder what the heck everyone was thinking. In the 70’s, men’s hair was getting longer, shaggier, and unrulier.

The shaggification (not a word) of men’s hair really started in the 1960’s. Before then, men’s hair was mostly short and neat. When the 60’s arrived, young people started questioning society’s attitudes on everything, and long hair became a symbol of rebellion. Soon, popular musicians like The Beatles began wearing their hair long, and long hair reigned supreme.

Below is a collection of excellent 1970’s male shaggyness. We’ve got flowing locks. Thick mutton chops. And of course plenty of bushy facial hair, too. The 70’s really were the hairiest decade.
