Getting That Tousled Long Hair Look

August 28, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

One of the latest fashion trends for hair involves laid back wavy hair very similar to the classic beach look that comes natural to some lucky women. This look can be easily attended by most anyone though with a simple hair curling iron. It is best to use quality hair curling irons such as a ionic or ceramic based models which are so much better for your hair than the cheaply made drugstore models which have your hair against bare metal to curl the strands.

It is tempting to try and curl all of your hair to get this look and then hope you can mess it up enough to make it look natural. This is not the best way to get these carefree curls though. Use your curling iron to curl only random pieces of hair about two inches up from the bottom of the hair and stopping about eye level. These randomly created curls on only part of your head will give not only body but also the messy casual appearance that so many women want to achieve. This is one easy to get hairstyle that you will love to use your curling iron to create not only for work but also for a great night out.

Seventies Hairstyle

As you can see, hairstyles from the 70’s aren’t too far off from styles of today.

Who is the first person we think of when we think of 70’s hair? Farrah Fawcett, of course and her feathered hair style, That style made it back decades later and I still see people wearing this style today. It is an easy style to achieve and all you really need to get this look is a hair straightener. When straightening the front sections of hair, rotate the iron when you reach the ends in the direction you want hair to flip. See How to Curl your Hair with a Hair Straightener for more step by step instructions.

Another interesting fact is that women in the 70’s didn’t have flat irons, they used irons, you know, the ones for clothes! The extra care they had to take in order not to burn their hair must have been great. Thank goodness technology changes a great deal but not our hair styles…

Another Seventies Hairstyle that has been incorporated into today’s styles is the shag, a messy cropped style with layers seen usually at shoulders length.

This 70’s hairstyle is another simple style that you can do using your flat iron. Take sections of hair 1-2 inches wide and flip the ends of your hair out until your entire head is done.

As you can see styles come and go we just get new and improved technology to wear them. Be it 70’s or today you simply can’t go wrong, Although half the people you talk to will say “70’s was horrible for fashion and hair” the other half….the more important half will say “70’s hair and fashion rocked” I grew up in the 70’s and I am telling you the 70’s ROCKED, just don’t ask to see any of my photos…please!
