Well, in Texas long hair for men was far from widely accepted in the '70s, though the "unisex" trend was happening. My mom often tried to convince me that long hair was "out of style", which meant nothing to me, anyway, since I didn't consider myself a fashion follower. I went long-ish until I moved away from home in '73 and immediately started growing it out for real. Even so, I really didn't wear it longer than a few inches below the shoulders in the '70s.
BTW, I didn't do salons or barbers in those days. I was too cheap and finicky so I crammed on how-to books and learned to cut my own hair. It took forever, and was kind of a pain, but if I was slow and careful it came out the way I wanted it.
