Saturday Night Fever had had started the new era of Disco. The 70s were a decade of casual attitudes and a whole new genre of music which greatly affect the clothing of people. Disco became so popular that its effect could easily be seen on TV, film, music, fashion, and dcor, all these took something from disco itself. Some of the well known musical groups and individuals of the era include The Bee Gees, KC and the Sunshine Band, Chic, ABBA, and Donna Summer. These groups began fashion trends that are still seen in society today.

70s Makeup
Though the clothing of the 1970s was sort of out there, the 70s makeup trends of the decade were actually quite subtle. Women looked pretty and natural though there was always a little splash of color that brightened up the face and lent a playful or mysterious look. Foundation was never heavy and matched the wearers skin tone as closely as possible. That means makeup in a nude color that simply evened the skin tone was a big seller because women were hoping to achieve a very natural 70s makeup look.

70s Hairstyles Men


Trends in hairstyles of the 1970s for both men and women would appear fairly unusual to the fashionista of today. The rule of less is more certainly didnt apply to 70s hairstyles for men's. At the beginning of the decade, the hairstyles or lack thereof of the late 60s hung around for awhile. Young men tended to wear their hair straight and parted down the center. Headbands tied around the forehead were still popular in the 70s and may have been worn as an accessory by men as well as women. This style began to fade away by 1973 or so.
