Looking for some inspo for your new summer ‘do? For the last few years, 90s and early 2000s hair trends were everywhere, but now styles from a few decades earlier are leading the way.
These 1970s-inspired looks from the 1970s are back and better than ever.
- The Fawcett Flip - The classic Farrah Fawcett blowout and curtain fringe may be the undisputed queen of 70s hairstyles.
- The Shag - This haircut with its choppy layers and full fringe that frames the face, as sported by Natasha Lyonne, is a long-time favorite because it’s very flattering.
- Curtain bangs - The long, parted bangs also frame the face and add some fullness to your tresses.
- Sleek and straight - Also known as “Cher Hair,” this style features a deep center part, blunt ends and smooth, shiny strands.
- The Bixie - A combination of a bob and a pixie haircut, in the 70s it was seen on everyone from Jane Fonda to Joyce Dewitt from “Three’s Company.”
- Wispy bangs - For a subtle change that adds softness to your look, you can’t beat wispy bangs, just like Olivia Newton John had.
- Voluminous bob - The beloved bob haircut is having a moment and the full, jaw-grazing version with layers is a trendy old-school look.
- Blunt cut - A stand-out from many of the big and bold 70s hairstyles, this cut is simple and polished.
- Bandana beauty - From scarves to large headbands to bandanas, hair accessories were hot in the 1970s and the practical style is in again now.
- Wavy tresses - Volume and length ruled the decade, so if your locks are already long, add some wavy texture with sea salt spray and scrunching and rock it.
- Mullet - The “business in the front, party in the back” has never really gone away, and no one wears it better today than Miley Cyrus.
- Long and fringes - Riley Keough in “Daisy Jones and the Six” reminds us why this long, shaggy style with full bangs is a timeless combo.
