Fashion repeats itself, the expression goes. Going back to an iconic look from a previous era is the epitome of fashion-forward. So, for a sophisticated yet subtle style that's ultra-feminine and natural-looking, we're going back in time...
A retro style that's not stuck in the past
Even though the legendary hairstyle of Farrah Fawcett is still fashionable today, it has to be said that the style is a little rigid-looking. For a feminine seventies vibe, it is possible to modernize the look without forgetting the original inspiration. To do this, we need to start with a basic long bob (also called a clavicut) to avoid creating a Farrah-caricature. Then, we create light waves, without exaggerating the volume, for a more natural-looking and fresh look.
A look back in time for all locks
The advantage of this floaty style is that it suits all hair types: fine, medium or thick. The only snag, reminds L'Oréal Professionnel hair stylist Delphine Courteille, is that this classic look doesn't suit round-shaped faces because "it tends to accentuate the volume of your cheeks".
A retro look requires more technique than you'd think
If this seventies-style look seems minimalist, it's actually far from simple to get perfect. Delphine Courteille explains that the technique varies depending on the type of hair. For fine hair, your professional stylist will use hot rollers, while medium to thick hair only needs regular styling.
