It’s a no-brainer that 70s inspired trends have been resurfacing in the past few years. Famous celebrities like Bella Hadid, Hailey Bieber, and Kendall Jenner have been slaying the ‘70s trends like flared pants, colorful crochet tops, hairstyles, and vintage sunglasses in the past.

 At the beginning of 2021, Farrah Fawcett’s infamous feathery waves became the hot topic of many hairstyle tutorials on many social media platforms. Apart from Farrah’s hairstyle, other ‘70s inspired hairstyle trends, like boho braids, voluminous waves, hairstyles with scarves and headbands, afro hairstyles have been also trending.

Every decade has its own style statement when it comes to hair. During the 70s, a unique hairstyle was key for self-expression. Unique yet funky hairstyles were also popular, particularly for the younger generation, and offered a way to express one’s personality.

Conservative hairdos like shag hairstyles or flirty bobs also had room for personal expression in the 1970s. Many of these 70s hairstyles are in vogue now because they are first and foremost classics. Adding a modern twist such as hair highlights, a bit of color, or a touch of straightening to a seventies look can freshen up the retro style. Hair accessories such as scarves and headbands can also be used to give your hairstyle a more fun look.
