Slide 14: Some of The most meaningful signs that surround the hippie stem from their choice of dress and rugged grooming practices, this attitude towards dress and grooming, are key examples that reflect the Hippies anti mainstream message and stand. For example, during the beginning of the subcultures movement the hippies choice of dress accepted anything from a tie-dyed robe to a hemp cape. The conservative dress code that implied a shirt and tie, short military style haircut, and a cheap suit the day he left school, was discarded by the male hippie and replaced with old faded ripped jeans, ex army jackets, worn work shirts and shoulder length hair (Mills, 2005 p.16). Girls of the subculture were no different for they looked for old fashioned, second hand dresses in thrift stores favouring worn, soft fabrics like lace and velvet. In addition if the female or male hippie felt like dressing up, anything went, often handmade clothes, featuring psychedelic rainbow colours (Mills, 2005 p.17) This laid back style of garment has gone through no major changes over the decades ,the meaningful sign of alternate dress that was originated in the sixties surrounding the subculture can still be seen on hippies participating today.

The slang that was used in the sixties and that has carried on through the years feature words including pad (your pad was where you lived), Crash (to crash meant to go to sleep), Gas (if you had a gas you had a lot of fun), Split (to split meant to leave), and Groovy (when something is referred to as groovy it was cool (Mills, 2005 p.19) What About The Drugs? : What About The Drugs? marijuana : marijuana Psychedelic mushroom ACID PURPLE HAZE LSD 25 Methamphetamine Cocaine Heroin Hippies tried what ever they could get their Hands on!

The various artists and groups that make these musical styles famous amongst the hippie subculture include, Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan The Byrds, The Beatles, The Who, Led Zepplin, The Rolling Stones, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Cream, Pink Floyd and Howlin Wolf, just to name a few (Mills, 2005 p.27). Although blues rock and folk rock are popular amongst the subculture, Psychedelic rock can be seen to be the most appealing to hippies. The reason being that Psychedelic rock is a style of rock that is inspired or influenced by psychedelic culture, which is infused with the hippie subculture. The psychedelic tunes such as Echo’s or White Rabbit performed by Pink Floyd and Jefferson Airplane, attempted to replicate and enhance the mind altering visions and experiences of the mind altering drugs Hippies ingested, it is believed by the Hippie that when listening to Psychedelic music performed by various artists one can experience similar feelings of being on mind altering drugs, such as LSD, Marijuana, Psychedelic mushrooms or peyote.
