50 Years of Southern Church Hair
Don’t head to the meetin’ house unless every hair’s in place.
There’s Southern hair and then there’s Southern church hair—the special ’do we wear to Sunday services, WMU meetings, and bridal teas. It is painstakingly curled (or straightened), styled to the nth degree, and generously shellacked with hairspray. (Surely, after all these years, we needn’t specify Aqua Net?) Some of us went through a troubling "natural" phase in the seventies, but we’re all better now. Take a look at these retro hairstyles, and let us know if we need to bring any of them back.
