Seventies bangs make a comeback in style

Take a look at photos of celebrities, or models on the runway, and you'll see it for yourself: seventies-style bangs are back. Long, very long even, and split in two on the side, these bangs create an almost layered effect. Let's investigate this ultra-feminine retro look.

Bangs are getting longer, thinning out and curving around the most fabulous faces in town. Could the reign of thick, straight bangs be coming to an end? Or will we see a divided front in the fringe camp? Between graphic nineties-style locks and unruly, seventies-inspired, modern-day spit curls, fashionistas have a choice to make.

A hippie breeze is blowing in the (h)air

If 70s bangs have made a comeback, it's because the retro style that became synonymous with Farrah Fawcett is also back on the scene. It's layered, without excessive volume, but with the same elegant and natural-looking loose waves that cascade over the shoulders. The bangs that come with the look, which signal the arrival of a carefully styled, feathered hairstyle, can also be worn on their own. This way it's possible to give a nod to the seventies without adopting the entire look, although we have heard rumors that flares (bell-bottoms) are about to make a comeback...

Should we get the look?

For those of you who already have bangs, you'll have to be patient and wait until your hair has grown out to just below your eyes. Those who haven't yet got bangs, our editorial team recommends you take several photos to the hair stylist and show them what you want. This way, s/he will know how to best cut your hair in a way that works with your its natural properties and tendencies, so that the look stays chic and, especially, effortless-looking!
