Everyone, at All Times, Must Have the Right Hair

High School Females-2.jpg

They're making a movie about the Runaways, which could wind up being great, or not, like most things.

Casting call here, but note the hair specifications:

This is not Austin Powers, over-the-top 1970s. This is real, a reproduction of true events, very authentic rock’n’roll in the 1970s.

Girls' hair should be long, straight, or wavy—no modern cuts or colors—only natural colors. Hair can be shorter, but not super short. Hair was not stick-straight; no appliances to straighten the hair were used. Guys' hair should be shaggy, longish, or completely long—no crew cuts.

Hair for both sexes was generally parted in the middle and worn long or waved back Farrah Fawcett style. 18-to-look-younger guys should have no facial hair.

They should totally cast in Philadelphia. I marvel daily at the earnest wear of 70s hair.

I remember (a dude I am) parting my hair in the middle.

I interviewed two of the Runaways post-breakup in 1982. Man, I wish I'd had a camera back then! At least I have the memories...
