Scary Seventies Scorpio Hair Tips

Filed in Astro-Beauty

Seventies Hair

Seriously, who knew that in the 70s – a decade with Pluto in Libra – sellotape/scotch tape was actually a hair accessory. And not only that, particularly pushed at “Scorpio Girls.”   Oh but wait, this is from 1970, the final years of Pluto in Virgo. Maybe a late-era peak-Pluto-in-Virgo moment.  I mean, it’s practical, right? Or just bent.  The “opposite” Sex?  How having your hair dry quickly appeals to “her sense of mystery.”?  Is this from when advertising copywriters still drank martinis at lunch?

Jeez i do have a Scorpio ruled 12th house then it gets eaten by Sagittarius, which is also my Ascendant.

Can you imagine me using the hidden magic of scotch tape in my hair and then looking all Sagittarius when i leave the house??

Probs end up with that (first post) double-sided-tape-punished kitty stuck on my head, bboth of us yowling, poor kitteh shredding my work clothes.

um, it wasn’t exactly scotch tape. it was pink and a bit like stretchy paper and wasn’t sticky so much as tacky. Women who had been going to the hairdresser weekly were just beginning to try and do their hair at home. Sleeping in rollers & pins is very uncomfortable so this was an alternative to that and allowed you to roll your hair flat against your head to make those crazy structured spit curls, paste it to your head overnight for those geometric dos that Vidal Sasson popularized (and that only worked if you had stick straight hair) or… Read more »

My grade 4 teacher must have been a scorpio because she used to tell us how she used scotch tape to set her curls…. she also told us she used to squeeze her breast milk into her husbands coffee in the morning when her son was an infant…. that doesn’t sound very scorpio-ish to me though.

No, hair tape was a thing! It was pink and softer and less sticky than regular tape–sort of like floral tape, very bendy. You used it so you could sleep on hair in a set (better than clips or rollers), or keep hair straight and from getting weird bendy places in it.

I remember this stuff. It’s not like cellophane/sellotape, it was more like bandage tape. Never used it, though.

Yeah, Scotch must have been what they were drinking when they published that. Rosy future- really??? And I keep reading “Hair Sex Tape”!

Decades are usually mis-remembered.
If you can remember the 60s you weren’t there.
If you can remember the 70s you wished you couldn’t
If you can remember the 80s you big noter
lf you can remember the 90s why would you bother.

I heard a dj say, after he played “Baker St”, that is was from the early 70s. 1978 is NOT the early 70s. (Mars in Virgo amped by Pluto 2° away)

Asked Mum if she knew anything about this and she said it’s totally new to her. She was in her early 20’s, single and working two jobs in 1970 so I guessed if there was an easy way to set and style your hair, she’d have known about it.

I simply must have the colorful 17″ x 26″ Hairoscope poster. The clipping shows the Scorpio ad ran in November. If the poster had a full set of illustrations of 12 hairoscope signs, they could have run appropriate new ads every month. This might have been an ongoing astro style feature.

Well after leaving my primary school aged obsession with Sally Field, l then progressed to Helen Reddy. By the time l was kicked out of school l was a fully fledged dope smoker that loved Charlie’s Angels, not for the storyline, but bcos of Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson. (lncongruous as it seems; a dope smoker liking such a show). They are prob the reason l like brown haired femmes. Their hair was somethn else. All Scorps! I ‘never’ saw the blonde one; prob an Aqua or Leo. Soz for the base, non-nuanced memory. But being a Kat with Mars/Pluto… Read more »

Pisces should be “look in mirror. Shrug. Make hair messier. Smile. Leave house.”

JokermanMM Member

I would not.
A few reasons why…

Leo- spare me the suspense
Libra- spare me the expense
Aqua- spare me the expanse
Sadge- spare me the enhance
Aries- spare me the chance
Gem-spare me the rants

(l am reading a serious book. Im just letn off steam.)

As a crazy curly haired woman, I would have had to scotch tape my whole head in the seventies

The only mystery you will be giving off in that is where did that chick leave her meds this morning she’s scotch taped her fucking hair?

Its the kind of look that will give you a seat free next to you on a crowded bus

Literally wearing my silk pink night cap as I read this. (Scorp AC conjunct Venus & Pluto in Libra conjunct my Sun, FTW!) If I could, I’d post pix here to prove it. Nighty night. 😉

I have a hair manual from the 70s with styles for each sign (along with complicated instructional diagrams.) Certain enforced childhood hairstyles would dictate my mood for weeks. Of course I dyed my strawberry blonde hair a “natural blue black” on turning 16 – Scorpio emancipation!

Impulsive and fun-loving, while actually relevant under certain circumstances, are not the first words that I would choose to use to describe Scorpios 😉

What about super intense fun and impulsive in the extreme? The latter would arrive with minimal notice lol, and the former I think one would detect, lol…

I am having progressed sun moon saturn 8th, with scoprio rising, juno ceres conjunct ascendant…progressed retrograde neptune 1st house…

Sticky taped hair does sound a bit drastic, painful though :-0

That was my thought when I read it. And the whole idea of sticky taping your hair? Hair is my thang, but like all good scorps, I would rather die than make it look like I care so much that I would use sticky tape in my hair. So how’s that for an impulsive, fun loving scorpio? I think this photo of a 1970 woman-as-doll photo Scotch hair set tape print ad could be a fantastically scary representation of a scorpio channelling fun loving impulsivity while wearing sticky tape in her hair – https://www.pinterest.com/pin/27514247693896412/ – how much more wrong could… Read more »

This is so delightfully ‘weird’!!
I can’t think of anything to say other than that Pluto and Libra are a very odd combo, despite Scorpio being next Libra during the year.

I know, I would never put tape on my hair, but it’s so cute!

I do love putting a tiny piece of double stick tape on kitties that behave poorly. Cats hate the magic of tape on their paws or back. Must be Scorpionic!

sphinxMM Member
sphinx

oh no! cat’s use their hair to sense their environment, even on their ankles, losing any can result in a loss of balance!

annica

It is only for a few seconds. The kitty looks at me like i am a jerk. Lol. Very amusing when she tries to remove tape on her paw with her other paw to which it sticks to. Back and forth. She is convinced it is devil’s magic. No serious hair loss.
