The 70’s has a very distinct way of styling hair and even the accessories are unique too. If you want to have a jaw-dropping get-up for a party or you simply want to spice up your look for the day, opting for the 70’s hair style would be the perfect solution. It will give you the perfect fusion of vintage glam and fashion-forward style.

One of the easiest ways to achieve the 70’s look is to wear a band which goes across the middle part of the forehead and around the back of your head. This looks amazing especially for women who have long hair. All you need to do is to create a partition on the middle part of your crown hair and then sweep your hair to the sides. Let your tresses cover your ears. Then slip on the band and you already have an iconic 70’s look. You can also apply some hair mousse or styling lotion to keep your hair flat.

Who would forget the feathered look? This is another signature hair style for the 70’s which would also look amazing today. Styling your hair this way requires adding plenty of volume and body to your tresses. Think of how Farrah Fawcett styles her hair. The waves are playfully styled to curl outwards. There is no need to stiffen the strands because the look is all about letting the hair move freely. Teasing the hair on the crown area is essential in achieving this look in order to get a fuller volume.

When it comes to the 70’s look, the Afro or fro can not be forgotten. This means embracing the frizziness of the hair and giving it a lot of volume. Both men and women show off the natural curls of their hair. They even enhance the poofiness by doing a lot of hair teasing and blow drying. This results to a big, almost rounded hair which really makes a bold fashion statement.

Braids are also a big thing when it comes to achieving the look of the 70’s. Women have a very distinct way of doing their braids. A partition is created from the crown area down to the nape area. Then, with the use of a fine tooth comb, the hair is segmented to two segments. Create a low braid on one side and then another on the other side. Keep in mind that the hair on the crown area has to be flat and smoothened. To finish off the look, apply some hair wax or gel on the crown area to control the frizzy and unruly strands.

These styles may be popular during the 70’s but that does not mean that these would not be fitting for today’s modern world. Do not be scared to go for a 70’s look to achieve an astounding look which works for both formal and casual events.
