How to Look Younger: 3 ‘Insanely Flattering’ ’70s Hairstyles That Are Making a Comeback

As you enjoy the joys of life at every age, it’s always fun to go to a beauty salon once in a while. Classic cuts like bob or pixie never go out of style, but what are the current hairstyle trends? And how can someone achieve them from the comfort of their own home? If you’re looking for inspiration, Express.co.uk spoke to BeautifullThe styling experts who revealed 70s hairstyles are making a comeback, and with some clever styling tools, they can easily be created for a more youthful look.

A hairstylist with over 20 years of experience, Gorka Arraras and hairstylist Hannah Karlsson revealed the latest trend dominating the hair industry.

They said: “We’re seeing a lot of retro hairstyles from the ’70s and ’80s on the catwalks; they were everywhere during fashion weeks.

“These include long hair, wolf mullets as seen on Kristen Stewart during the Chanel fashion show in Paris, as well as the Farrah Fawcett flickering waves that have taken over TikTok and fashion shows.

70’s bang

One of the most popular hairstyles from the ’70s that has made a comeback is the blow-dry hairstyle, and it’s all about creating as much volume as possible, with a high-shine finish.

The style features a long mop parted down the middle with lots of layers.

Layers have many benefits, not only do they add interest to a hairstyle, but as women age, hair begins to thin and layers create the illusion of thicker, fuller hair.

You can experiment with the placement of the layers, but a great option would be to focus them in the front, around the face to create a framing effect.

This is said to be an “incredibly flattering approach to layering and will complement women of all ages.”

The ’70s hairstyle can be achieved with a blow dryer and a large barrel brush, but with the growing popularity of air wraps, creating this look has never been easier.

Gorka and Hannah recommended the Beautiful Air Wonder 8 in 1 as “the ideal tool to experiment and achieve fresh styles outside the catwalks thanks to its large number of accessories to cover all styling needs”.

Air Wonder features a “unique all-in-one drying and styling tool for straight, curly, wavy or volumizing effects.”

“The volumizing brush has been designed to create volume and shape from roots to ends, in one easy step. This oval brush has a ceramic and keratin coating for extra hair protection and instantly shinier, silkier hair.”

beach waves

An iconic culture of the 70s was the hippies, and this movement greatly influenced style and beauty.

Hippie hair included braided styles, long flowing hair, and fancy accessories like scarves or flower crowns.

To modernize this classic, hairdressers are creating beachy waves, and it’s an expressive hairstyle that can be tailored to your preference, hair texture and length.

It’s also extremely easy and can be worn a bit messy, perfect for those who like low maintenance hairstyles.

Bellissima’s 2-in-1 Beach Wave Styler it’s ideal for “creating naturally loose or glamorously defined waves.”

“With a single click, the plates rotate to offer two unique looks, for ultimate style customization.”

To achieve these styles, it’s a good idea to take care of your hair.

Hairstylists at Bellissima also shared the top hair concerns they see women walking into the salon with.

“After covid, many of our clients suffer from hair loss,” they explained. “We also have many new moms who experience noticeable hair loss or shedding a few months after having a baby.

“The other main hair concern women have is dry hair and this can be the result of numerous factors.

“One is that as we age and go through menopause, our hair naturally becomes drier due to hormonal changes.

“Environmental factors like hot weather, wind, and swimming in chlorinated or salt water can also cause hair to dry out.

“Third, our hair care practices can also contribute to dry hair. This includes over-washing, using harsh shampoos, conditioners or styling products, and opting for hair tools that are not designed to help protect hair.”

For healthier hair, there are a few things that can be done; the stylists at Bellissima advise starting with regular haircuts: “For shorter hair where you want to keep the shape and style, around six weeks. If you want your hair to grow longer than eight to 12 weeks or when you see split ends appear.”

And when it comes to using styling tools, it’s important to protect your hair from heat damage.

Gorka and Hannah said: “Always use a heat protectant product – the ingredients form a thin film on the surface of the hair which helps provide a heat protectant. Choosing the right hair tools is also crucial!”
