    Anyone who lived during the 70’s knows many people had the afro and yes, that even included men too. Most people carried around a pik in their pockets to keep it groomed. As for the clothes, there was a hell of a lot of polyester then, flared legs, capes and 3 piece polyester suits for men, colplete with the matching button down vest. Most clothes seemed to be in shades of light blue, brown and whatever wild pattern was in fashion during any particular year. And oh those wide collars! If you look at Ralph Furly on Three’s Company, THAT was the 70’s style for many men.

    I was a beauty school student in the mid to late 70s and women really did do that to their hair ! Never seen it on kids tho. You permed it and put them under the dryer with the perm rods still in then used an afro pic on it. I don’t remember it looking good on anyone lol

    OMFG, I literally have no words for this photo.

  11. Looks as if the woman sitting down has some highlights in her hair. I wonder if the stylist put them in with a one inch brush while whispering, “Tap tap tap. Tap tap tap.”

  12. Simon says:

    Wow! If you squint a little, they look like matchsticks.

    Talk about Retro! I LOVED this one… but probably in good part cuz my hair was pretty similar in the late 70’s- early 80’s. I had a “Fro, & it was reddish too. But mine never was that well formed. I don’t know how they kept it in place. I don’t think it was photoshopped; probably again, cuz I personally REALLY know that it’s possible to have hair that curly. (still do have it; just keep it cut short) And you folks are right; Bob Ross, who was such a neat & loving man… had the exact same hair.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE… curly heads or not!

  15. April says:

  16. Tim S says:

    Didn’t I see them on a Brillo Pad commercial?

  17. CarrieM says:

    Wow! This is AFP gold. Am I the only one having a slightly hard time guessing the gender of the kids?

  18. Amanda says:

    At home with the Bob Ross family.

  19. yokozbornak says:

    I wonder if they are related to Bob Ross.
