Women's hair was also "hippie-ish" (long and straight) for the first half of the decade and puffy and combed-over during the second half (also a preview of EightiesHair). Outside of this wiki, when referring to "70s hair", people usually mean that sexy feathered hairstyle associated with Creator/FarrahFawcett and KristyMcNichol. Usually when referring to what's called '70s hair on this wiki, terms like "{{Disco}} hair" are used.

Yeah, it's the sideburns. They were undoubtedly the defining feature of Seventies male hair, in addition to hair that was worn naturally thick--straight at first, and "hippie-ish" just like [[TheSixties Sixties]] hair during the first half of the decade (since the early seventies was really TheSixties Part II) but increasingly frizzy during the second half (a preview of EightiesHair) as the decade wore on, perhaps thanks to the influence of glitter rock, or possibly the Black Power movement. The other "very 70s" hairstyle is the Afro, immensely popular in the 70s (though it started in the late [[TheSixties Sixties]])for most African-Americans, but even white guys with curly hair tried to have one. Afros in fiction often tend to be [[FunnyAfro exaggerated for comic effect]].

** ''NameThatTune'': NBC Vice President of Daytime Programming Lin Bolen commissioned a revival of this name-the-song game show staple of the 1950s and hired Dennis James as emcee. In "The Game Show Book" by the USA Today's Jefferson Graham, James -- who was 57 when he took the job -- was asked to grow his hair and sideburns to appear 15 years younger, which he did very reluctantly. He carried over this look to the first half of the 1974-1975 syndicated season of ''ThePriceIsRight'', which he simultaneously hosted, but once ''Tune'''s daytime version was cancelled in January 1975, he cut his hair and trimmed his sideburns to his more familiar style.

* Take an actor known for SeventiesHair, like Takuya Kimura, and cast him in a seventies throwback LiveActionAdaptation, in this case the ''UchuuSenkanYamato'' movie. How could it not work?
