DIY: Get the 70s Retro Hair Look In Six Simple Steps

Get the 70s Retro Hair Look In Six Steps

Do you love the super sexy 70s side fringe with a tad of boyish charm look?  Here’s how to get it…just follow our six simple steps.

THE LOOK: 70s Retro Cool

Playing up the retro-inspired Coach collection, Redken’s Global Styling Director, Guido Palau, created this super cool 70s hair – so effortlessly chic, confident and bang on-trend. “The look is very 70s,” explains Guido. “I kept the hair as natural as possible, using Guts 10 and Wind Blown 05 to create great texture with a little bit of lift. Then, I created a low side part over one eye and tucked the hair behind the ear for a cool feeling that’s a little bit boyish, but still very soft and feminine.”


1. Start with damp hair.

2. Apply Guts 10 Root Targeted Volume Spray Foam, $30.95, at the crown and blow dry with a round brush to create volume and texture.

3. Using fingers, create a low, messy deep side part.

4. Spray Signature Look Wind Blown 05 Dry Finishing Spray, $30.95, all over for airy volume and fullness.

5. Sweep hair across the forehead, covering one eye, and tuck behind the ear, leaving a small section to fall in front of ear.

6. Finish with Fashion Work 12 Versatile Working Spray, $27.95, for hold with movement.
