The 1970’s are back, the runways at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Sydney were chock a block full of inspired looks.
Stevie Nicks-style strands were everywhere with hair stylists recreating seventies ‘do’s with modern finishes such as softer side parts, nonchalant hair flicks and double-twisted top knots. Oh, and styling products that provided plenty of hold without weighing hair down. No folks, no “helmet hair” here.
The good news for us is that the modern 70s-style hair look is easy to replicate on your own. Here’s how to copy it…
Starting with shampooed hair, make a clean middle part and apply moose all over.
Rough dry hair with finger tips using a hair-dryer.
Next, comb hair to smooth out any tangles.
Starting from mid-lengths to ends, and then from roots to ends, spray hair with some heat protecting spray before spritzing hairspray on to give your hair some grit.
Using your fingers as a comb, separate hair from the right ear around to the left ear so you have a top and bottom section. Clip the top section on top of the head so it’s out of the way.
Using an iron take 5cm sections from the bottom and curl.
Unclip the top section of hair and repeat curling all over.
Now, spray hair all over with some dry shampoo to give hair a matte texture.
Flip your head over and continue to spray.
While your hair is flipped over, use your hands to muss it all up.
Flip your hair back over and create a low side part by flicking hair over to your side of choice.
To finish, seal with some more hairy spray for extra hold
