As a Baby Boomer I remember and have an affinity for the original peace sign. When this cultural icon faded away in the 70s who'd have thought any of us would ever see it again?

Surprisingly, in the last few years we've seen a resurgence in popularity again, especially among kids, tweens, and teens. These lovely peace hairbands by Los Angeles-area based Trendy Clips exemplifies that return to vogue.
The peace symbol, by way of introduction, was conceived in 1958 by Gerald Holton for the British Nuclear disarmament movement, long before hippies arrived on the scene. But the peace sign as we know it today didn't become well-ingrained until the 1960s, inspiring the V sign hand gesture that evolved into a way for the young generation of the time to communicate their disillusionment with the Vietnam War. During that turbulent decade ridden with violence, a counter culture of peace emerged that elevated the peace symbol to cult status among the masses.
