    What the late 1960s really looked like

    More from BohemianOpus

    1967 to 1969 Fashion


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     BohemianOpus says she spent a ton of time on her hair until 1967. In 1968, she says her peers began criticizing all things materialistic. As a result, in 1969, she says many women stopped dying their hair and wearing makeup. "Some stopped shaving their legs and underarms," she says. "It was all part of the 'revolution,' and the anti-establishment movement." In the late '60s, fashion evolved through the years. "At that time, those of us who loved fashion looked at it as a moving art form," she says.
    - PM91, CNN iReport producer

    The years from 1967 to 1969 saw a big change in fashion.


    On the far left is me in Philadelphia in 1967. I was an Eaglette (a cheerleader for the Philadelphia Eagles). Mod, mod, mod was the style, even in our cheerleading outfits.


    The center photo is me in 1968. The "teased hair" started to fade a la Marlo Thomas in "That Girl." Still a bit of a poof, but we were growing our hair longer. Mod fashion gave way to a more casual look.


    By 1969, the "Summer of Love" had passed and I moved to California with the Flower Children, grew my hair really long and wore more flowing clothes.
