The fashion trend of men’s hippie wig has its origins in 1960s America. Hippie is a group of young people with the idea of "love and peace" in the 1960s in the United States, using pure spirit to fight against the established social values. 

The historical background of hippie’s hair

In the 1960s, because of America's involvement in the Vietnam War, the atrocities of the war caused more and more people to join the anti-war ranks, hippies against the mainstream culture reached their peak.

Young people dress up, wear long hippie hair, smoke drugs, listen to rock music, dance swing, and rebel against tradition. Slowly this culture has been accepted into mainstream culture. The hippie culture has a profound influence on the 1970s and becomes an overwhelming trend.

Famous stars often affect the aesthetic of people, the 1970s is also the case. Singer Cher brought the middle-parted, straight hairstyle, which has become popular with the public with her appearance on variety shows, later it became one of the most popular hippie hairstyles.

Another hairstyle, "Fara’s head," is also brought to people by actor Fara through his film and television work. This hairstyle is also one of the classic male hippie hairstyles of the 1970s. The high-level bouffant curls from bangs to the end of the hair, with layers of blown-out eversion volume draped over the shoulders, have been emulated by many.

In hippie culture, as the popular culture at that time, not only women can wear short hair, men wearing long hair is also very common. In this hairstyle, there is little distinction between men and women. Besides, bohemia braids, leather headbands, and headscarves were also common elements of men’s hippie hair at that time. 

The classification of men’s hippie wig

If we divide according to material, workmanship, style, route and so on, men’s hippie wig can be divided into dozens or hundreds of types, or even more, so if you want to buy a wig, it is necessary to understand the knowledge of classification, it can allow you to buy the right product at the right price.

According to the material classification, hippie wigs can be divided into real hair, chemical fiber hair, animal hair, and mixed hair. Real hair can be divided into braid hair, color hair, bubble hair, and so on; chemical fiber hair can be divided into high-temperature silk, ordinary silk, and so on. Each of them has advantages and disadvantages.

According to the way of production, men’s hippie wig can be divided into woven hair, semi-woven hair, and full-handed hair. Woven hair is machine production with low price, the authenticity is not ideal, poor air permeability is easy to make the hair follicles blocked. Full-handed hair has high fidelity and good air permeability, it is very comfortable to wear. Semi-woven hair has the characteristic of the two.

In general, the cheaper the material, the rougher the work, the more exaggerated the hippie wigs. For example, teenagers like the quadratic animation wig, which is made of the roughest chemical fiber. The hair cover is very thick, the machine hook has woven it out. Because it does not require any sense of reality, the price is very cheap.

If your hair looks good and you just want to wear hippie hair to match beautiful clothes in your wardrobes, the half-handed wig is a good choice, because it looks more natural and is not that expensive. For people with scarce hair and baldness, whether you use a headgear, a hair block, or a piece of hair, you should choose a pure hand-woven wig.
