5 70s hair & beauty trends you can recreate

End of summer trends and upcoming fall fashions are championing 70s hair and beauty, matched with denim flares, warm-tone florals and big, dramatic frills. Here, we are suggesting our top 70s hair and beauty trends that are chic, perfectly on-trend and easy to recreate.

Center Hair Parting

Let’s start with the center parting. Center partings have not been a recent comeback but have been back since (at least) season 6 of The Hills came out in 2010. It is a typical 70s hairstyle that is a go-to for most women now. Pair a center parting with some soft waves and feathered layers, you’ve got a  a runway favorite for almost all of the Victoria Secret Angels, featuring two key 70s hair trends.

Pastel Eyeshadow

Pastel eyeshadow was a big hit in the 70s, everyone from Abba’s Agnetha and Anni-Frid to Dolly Parton showcased a soft-colored eyelid. Recreate this 70s look with a little more clout for 2016. Look for brighter, more pigmented eyeshadows for a modern take on this 70s trend.

We love bareMinerals eyeshadow in Adventure. Described as a medium mauve rose, it’s perfect for adding color to your daily makeup routine. You can get it from SkinStore here.

Blunt Bangs

One of our fall favorites, and 70s hair trend is big and bold blunt bangs. Most notably this year, have been Selena Gomez’s gorgeous bangs. Her restyle transformed her look and left her looking like a sexy style icon. Perfect for when you’re in need of a change, but don’t want to lose length.

Sun-kissed Cheeks

Sun-kissed cheeks were everywhere in the 70s. A bronzed glow was more common than a pair of denim flares! Update this beauty trend of the 70s by combining the current beauty trend of highlighting.

Pick a product that will illuminate your skin and highlight you features and still leave you with a sun-kissed glow. We love Laura Geller’s Baked Bronze-n-Brighten, the clue is in the name! Get it from LookFantastic here.

Feathered Layers

Feather layers are a 70s hair trend that has crept back into style recently, but not how you might expect. Think less Farrah Fawcett and more Jennifer Lawrence. The rise of the lob (long-bob) with some loose waves and feathered layers is absolutely on trend this season. A chic and effortless look, which requires less commitment, styling and maintenance than a traditional bob- Sounds like a win-win to us. Add volume with our scalp stimulating Back into the Roots Masque.
