    When Big Hair Was In


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     KCRep says you can tell the decade by the hair, and hair was fun in the 1960s.
    "My hairstyle in the first picture was done for special events like going to a party. This was a long cascade that I would curl and use a lot of hair spray on then place it on my head," she says. "The second picture is how I had my hair most of the time that year. I used a smaller cascade, ratted it, placed it on my head [and] then covered the top of it with my own hair."
    - PM91, CNN iReport producer

    Big hair was pretty much the fad in the 60's where I grew up in California. The higher the hair the better. This picture shows me with what we called a Cascade. We would either "ratt" the cascade or curl it then place in on top of our hair and use our real hair to blend it in to the cascade.

    The first picture is of me with a large curled cascade. The second picture is of me with a smaller cascade.
