The skinhead culture in the UK derived from working class young people.  The CCCS of the Birmingham Universities studied youth cultures and named them sub-cultures because they were resistant to mainstream culture.  The skinhead culture resisted beauty ideals by shaving their heads and their clothing style (boots, shirts and braces) represented that they are working class. Skinheads emerged during a time of the erosion of the working class.  Their particular style had symbolic resistance.
