I just adore late 60s hairstyles, so I am really excited to see what direction Mad Men moves this season in regards to hairstyles. From all the studio stills that have been released, it seems that Peggy's character is moving towards less big bouffant hair and more straighter, flatter styles. Conversely, Megan and Betty, seem to still be rocking the big hair, both wearing some of my favorite looks from the era.
Here are three 1969 hair setting patterns sure to make even the most modern girl look her swinging' 60s best.
Get Megan's Look
I think this setting pattern work work well with hot rollers too!
Get Betty's Look
This is one of my absolute favorite 60s hairstyles and January Jones wears it SO well! It's a perfectly polished late 60s politician wife look.
While she wasn't in much of last season, this is a style I could totally see Trudy wearing during Season 7. Her character tends to wear her hair half up and this is a much more updated look compared to last season. This is look I could also see Sally wearing. Regardless, it's a great simple style that is easy to accomplish with either a hot or cold set.
I'm most looking forward to seeing where they go with Joan's hair. From the beginning, we see her look dominated by a classic up do, and while I don't think much will change, I am hoping for some more winks and nudges to late 60s up dos this season.
