Farrah Fawcett’s seventies ‘do
could not be more on-trend. The style is constantly being copied and is still a firm favourite even after all these years! It is super simple to create and will give you a very seductive retro look, especially if you add your own personal touch... Who is it for?
This seventies ‘do is just as stylish as 20s kinks
or 90s crimping
! It manages to capture something both retro and modern at the same time. This style, which works best with layered hair, is perfect for long locks but can also be great with mid-length hair. Thick hair will deliver the most volume, but body can also be created with the help of a little styling mousse. Recreating that seventies blow-dry
. When you get out of the shower, untangle your hair thoroughly using a comb and apply a heat protector product
before blow-drying. For maximum volume, dry your hair with your head upside down to lift the roots. Once your hair is almost dry, use a wide-barrelled round brush to work your lengths outwards. When you’re done, blast your hair using your hair dryer’s cool setting to set your style in place. Creating a quiff
. To give your seventies blow-dry that something extra, crown it with a quiff. Take a large section of hair from the front of your head and backcomb the hair underneath (so that it is still smooth at the front). Then, using a flat brush, pull the section back gently, being careful not to flatten out your ‘do. Secure in place with hair grips or pins. © Pixelformula / Issa London prêt-à-porter show, Autumn-Winter 2012 © Jean Louis David
