These have become a highly collectible item in recent years if still in their original packaging

Beatlemania in 1964
The Beatles were extremely famously known for their mop – top hairstyle, but their hair did change over time.
The hair was cut to a medium length, and a fringe that was cut evenly across the front of the forehead just above the eyebrows.
The Beatles called their hairstyle Arthur, all their fans referred to their hair as ‘Arthur’.

Even young men in Communist countries such as The Soviet Union began to adopt this hairstyle. It was seen by the government as a sign of extreme rebellion. Men wearing it would be arrested, taken to a police station, and forced to have their hair cut before being released. Adults and government officials referred to these individuals by the nickname, “Hairies”.
