We can’t say we’re too surprised by the staying power of the ’70s resurgence.
After all, it’s hard to get sick of that free-spirited approach to style and beauty—an emphasis on keeping things natural, sunny, and casual by day, and experimenting with the boundaries of over-the-top glam by night. It’s fun, it’s fabulous, and it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere fast.
See which ’70s trends we’re still loving now.
The goal: bouncy, touchable waves that boogie when you so much as tilt your head. (And with Bey’s jewel-toned eye makeup? A perfect pairing.) To get the most authentic look possible, center-part your hair and wrap small sections around hot rollers, keeping your roots relatively flat. Once the curls have set, take out the rollers and brush out the waves a little with your fingers. A flexible hairspray is a must: Try R+Co’s (£27).
On the flipside, a sleek centre part (as demonstrated by girl of the moment Alicia Vikander) can read just as glam, especially when paired with a gilded eye look. The trick is to tame all flyaways with a smoothing cream or oil. (We like to dab a bit of Christophe Robin’s , £34, on our fingertips and gently comb through our strands.)
An All-Over Glow
Like Lauren Hutton at the 1975 Oscars (or really any picture of Farrah Fawcett), RHW knows that sometimes there’s nothing sexier than a head-to-toe bronze.
Let’s be clear: The goal here is more “healthy glow” than “fake bake,” so keep it subtle, not orange. We’re faking some summer sun in February with French Girl Organics (£26), an all-natural body oil with a faint, flattering shimmer. Extend the Midas touch to your face with a gold cream shadow and a great highlighter, like Ilia’s (£30).
Braids for Days
We’ll take braids in any way, shape, or form, but leave it to Olivia Palermo to take the festival staple and make it couture-ready. Our only pointer? Get creative.
