Hair/Make Up/Accessories - 1961-1970
There is so much interest in the 1960s and it is quite well documented (X, X, X, X) so I am kind of tempted to skip bits:). Still here you go:
1. Dramatic Eyes (emphasising the eyes is not very decade specific even though that thick eyeliner is kind of 60s) and Pale Lipsticks (X, X). Also earrings, equally dramatic.
2. But even cooler to hide the dramatic eyes behind sunglasses. A bit of a Satyajit Ray thing.
3&4: Let’s wear headbands (no more ribbons and plaits, leave that to the kids) and funky bead/plastic earrings. Also fringe - let’s all be Sadhana.
5&6: Yay for scarves on the head
7&8: Double yay for scarves as scarves.
9&10: OK that hair is not epic by 60s standards (X, X) but large flowers (X, X) and a variant of "Love in Tokyo" rubber bands - right on trend.
Things for which I didn’t have a decent pic Handbags [X, X, X.]. Or the wristwatch. Maybe even the a matchy-matchy telephone?!
And of course in another nod to the 30s, sleeveless blouse = armband [X, X]
