We Love The 60s

“Back in the sixties, you were a stone fox
If you teased it up into a bouffant
It was groovy, just like in the movies.
Beehive so high, made the boys feel woozy”

These are some of the lyrics from our ode to hair, Big Hair Baby. But our love for the 60s, is deep! We love the decade, and a lot of things that went along with it. Here’s some of our favorite things from the 60s, share your favorite things in the comments!

Favorite thing about the 60s: I’m happy to live in the current era, but if I had to pick another one, it would be the 60s.
