In the 50s and 60s, the "Liberation Hairstyle," Double Braids and "Movement Hair" were each in vogue for several years in turn. In the late 70s, waved hairstyle became a sudden emergence, sweeping all the large and medium-sized.
The earliest popular hairstyle of the post revolution period was the short-cut worn by the female soldiers in the Liberated Areas. This shoulder length cut was called the "Liberation Hairstyle," which was more convenient and neat looking than plaits. Since it was the hairstyle of women cadres, it spread like wildfire through both towns and rural areas.

Women who liked to be feminine added decoration to this hairstyle-some fastened a colorful hairpin onto their hair and some even pinned a little silk flower onto the clasp.

Young women still preferred to wear their hair in braids, but the one plait style was replaced by the double plait style. With two plaits dancing when they moved about, these young women looked pretty and vivacious. "Two thick plaits on her head" was praise for a girl in those days. But you could still see a number of women wearing the permanent wave hairstyle in the 50s.
