There were several short hairstyles pre 68/69. American crewcuts, Boston cut on the neck. Most kids grew up with a short back and sides and wanted something different. I only went for the 1/2 inch crop in late 68 but my hair was already short. I tried a razor parting but on reflection that only went well on a 1/8 or 1/4 inch crop. I only remember skinheads and not mods having the 1/8 inch crop.
