Break out your disco balls and shake off those flared pants, the Seventies are back on our beauty radar, with a wide variety of hippy-happy hairstyles to get our groove going. You heard it here first.

Modern shag haircut

Associated with 70s icons such as Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart and Jane Fonda, the shag style can work on both men and women. These days, it's seen in a modern version, with discrete layering and gently tousled bangs like the one seen on the Chloé Spring/Summer 2017 runway in Paris. It's an excellent choice of hairstyle for those looking to either grow out their hair, or those who want a shorter, textured cut without anything too drastic. Pair with crisp, chic tailoring for an on-trend contrast.

Folk mini braids

Roberto Cavalli's Spring/Summer 2017 catwalk had all the fashionistas and stylists leaning in for a closer look when he paired his bold Seventies-hippie-meets-rock-chick dresses with delicate mini braids that would have been perfectly at home at the Woodstock festival. The braids can either be worn from just in front of the ear, as seen, or for a more subtle look, underneath the hair towards the nape. Embrace the braid's origins and wear with floaty maxi-dresses or long, floral skirts.

Men's mid-length curls

It's not easy to find hairstyles for men with curly hair, so fashion is turning to the great Jim Morrison for inspiration. These curls, which fall to just above the shoulder, are framed with soft bangs that can be swept to one side. Once again, the Roberto Cavalli catwalk show implied that designer Peter Dundas dove into his teenage music collection for inspiration in what was his last collection for the Cavalli brand. Either you can embrace the history of the hair in your outfit, or contrast the style with a more refined ensemble.

Mullets, shags, curls and braids look set to invade the sidewalks and beaches for Spring/Summer 2017. Peace and love!
