1960’s Hippies By Sabrina Ringer
Hippies Style • Hippies fashion started out with the same kind of clothes as in the fifties (bell-bottoms and old lady dresses) • Then little shops called “boutiques” opened, selling cheap and colorful clothes to the younger people , which is when the ty-dye came in • Peace signs and other symbols were signs of vividness, peace and freedom • Almost all of the hippieswent barefoot and did not were shoes ,and if they did they wore sandals • Hippies culture went along with their style of clothes as a meaning to be free
Hair • They always made their hair looking un-kempt looking • Some had straight ,frizzy hair and afros (which was made by African Americans) • They had Pocahontas head bands and flowers .
Culture • They say they were all love and brotherhood but they were not they were into drugs and a lot of different sexual activities • They loved to go to parties and a lot of rock-n-roll concerts • They began in the United States • Always wanted to choose their own meaning of life • Tried to free themselves from social restriction
Hippies Now • Hippies styles now show up in the clothes like the ty-dye shirts and peace signs which are really big • The peace signs are mainly for the younger teengers • They are all over everything like the school books, jewelry , and clothes • The bell bottoms and granny dresses • Today we where shoes and we don’t go anywhere without them • People still make hippie clothes and sell them but their not really in that much of a style • The hair today we keep clean and brushed
Howthey influence ustoday • They leaded to us following the slogan “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle” Which was made to respect the earth • They helped out with free speech, environmentalism , consumer activism, and natural foods , including a little help with women’s rights. • Earth Day observances, global warming, and the international green movement can also trace its origins to a hippie environmental world wide • Therefore hippies can be THANKED for helping the world stay clean
