A '70s take on late '60s LA: farce and ridiculousness enacted in tiny dresses, ruffled shirts and big hair. Set in 1968, Shampoo presents the side of sixties fashion that made it to expensive Beverly Hills boutiques and hair salons. Gorgeous women in long bangs, miniskirts, and frosted makeup circle around George, the good-looking hairdresser whose uniform is as calculated and elaborate as theirs: shag haircut, heavy jewelry, unbuttoned shirt, leather jacket. At the end, when the plot drops this polished group into a wild LA party they look, well, overdressed.
