Creating your own flower power, all natural 70s hairdo is easy. A 1970s inspired hairstyle can be achieved by using appliances or just blow drying hair straight. During the 70s if you wanted straight locks, you would iron your hair with a clothes iron as there were no hand-held ceramic straighteners available. Hairstyle fashion of this era was influenced by the hippie culture, the disco scene and Farrah Fawcett's feathered locks. Today, a 70s style is easy to achieve without having your friend literally iron your hair.
- Skill level:
- Moderately Easy
Things you need
- Curling iron
- Hot rollers
- Flat iron
- Round barrel brush
- Smoothing creme
- Elastic band
Plug in hot rollers, curling iron or flat iron. Work mousse through damp hair and blow dry. As you blow dry, use a small round barrel brush and blow dry your locks as if you are curling them out.
Place hot rollers in hair and roll them backward. If you are using a curling iron, curl hair in a backward motion. The curls should begin to take on a flipped out look; the same goes for a flat iron. Whatever appliance you use, flip hair out and away from your face.
Run your fingers through your hair and separate locks to give a more natural look to your hair. It should look as if it is "feathered." Spray with hairspray to secure style.
Part hair down the middle or to the side with a comb, then smooth hair down flat against your head using a smoothing creme. Only smooth hair to the nape of your neck.
Tease hair with a comb from the nape of your neck down to give it volume. Spray with hairspray to lock volume in place.
Gather hair as if you are going to make a low ponytail. Fold the ponytail in half and wrap an elastic band around the hair to secure in a bun. Pull hair out a little to give it a full, bubble effect. Spray hair all over to secure style.
Disco Style Updo
Apply mousse to damp hair. Part hair down the middle with a comb. Use a round barrel brush and blow dry hair straight. Plug in a ceramic flat iron to heat.
Roll hair on top of head from the crown in 2-inch sections with Velcro rollers. This is to create volume on top. Leave in for five minutes. Remove the rollers and tease hair at the crown with a thin tooth comb. Use the comb to smooth hair over after teasing, but don't pull the tease out. You want to lightly comb over the teased area to create a smooth look.
Pull out one inch sections of hair and straighten using a ceramic flat iron. Repeat until hair is straight and smooth all the way around. Use hairspray to secure style. Accent this style with a thin elastic headband worn around the circumference of your head, or small floral barrettes.
