  • Description

    THE ERA OF THE BEATLES HAS SWEPT THROUGH SWEDEN - AND IN ITS WAKE HAVE COME A GROWING NUMBER OF SWEDISH TEENAGE MALES WHO HAVE DECIDED TO GROW LONG WAVY HAIR. IN STOCKHOLM HOWEVER THEY'VE GONE A LITTLE FURTHER THAN MANY OF THEIR BRITISH AND AMERICAN COUNTERPARTS - THEY'VE TAKEN TO LIPSTICK, EYE SHADOW, AND FACE POWDER AS WELL. THEIR GIRLFRIENDS MUST BE PARTLY TO BLAME - THEY LOVE THE CHANGE......
    ONE GIRL RECENTLY WAS ASKED ABOUT HER BOYFRIEND. SHE SAID: "HE USES HIS SISTER'S CURLERS EVERY NIGHT SO THAT HIS HAIR WILL STAY WAVY". SHE WENT ON: "WHEN HE IS ALL DRESSED UP YOU CAN HARDLY TELL HIM FROM A GIRL. I WOULD NOT KNOW MYSELF IF HE WASN'T MY FRIEND".

    AS A MEETING PLACE, THE YOUTHS HAVE CHOSEN A 75-YEAR-OLD BUILDING IN THE CITY CENTRE. ABOUT FIFTEEN HUNDRED YOUTHS AND THEIR GIRLFRIENDS JOSTLE TOGETHER THERE SEVERAL NIGHTS A WEEK TO LISTEN TO THE LATEST POP MUSIC PLAYED BY BANDS THAT ARE A NEW THING TO TRADITIONALLY STAID SWEDEN.

    MANY ADULTS LOOK SOMEWHAT DOUBTFULLY AT THE NEW STYLES. BUT THE YOUTHS HAVE AN ANSWER FOR EVERY CRITICISM. SAID ONE (WHEN ASKED WHY HE USED LIPSTICK): "THEY USED LIPSTICK AND MASCARA IN THE TWENTIES. IT IS TIME FOR A COMEBACK".
