The runways at New York Fashion Week were chock full of 1970s-inspired looks . To complement the sequin gowns, chunky tweed jackets and graphic accessories, hairstylists recreated seventies 'dos with modern finishes (i.e. softer side parts and double-twisted top knots) and products that provided enough hold without weighing hair down.
The good news for us is that the hair looks in particular are fairly easy to replicate on your own. Here's how to copy them.
Loose And Flowing Locks At Karen Walker
Get the look: Blow dry Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray into hair and mist Thickening Dryspun Finish onto locks to bring out natural texture. (Tip: For women with thick hair, blow dry with Prep.) Create a center or natural side part, then saturate bangs section with Does It All. Use a 1 and 1/4-inch curling iron to make loose barrel curls around the face. Gently fingercomb through strands to finish.
Sleek Topknots At Tracy Reese
Get the look: Before blowdrying, prep hair with SheaMoisture Tahitian Noni & Monoi Smooth & Repair Blow Out Cream to protect and add shine to hair. Using a paddle brush, dry hair brushing away from the face. Massage Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Gel Soufflé between hands and use to gather hair into a severe ponytail at the crown. Spritz Tahitian Noni & Monoi Smooth & Repair High Shine Glosser onto a paddle brush and smooth hair. Wrap wire around the base of the ponytail and twist so that the wire is hidden in the center of the tail. Twist the ponytail around the wire until it makes a tight spiraled rope, diagonally away from the head. Secure the ends with bobby pins. Slick back any loose hairs with an edge control and set the style in place with a moisturizing mist.
Super Straight Hair At Ohne Titel
Get the look: Spray roots with Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray and blow dry with finger tips. Smooth Thickening Full Form Mousse on dry hair from mid-length to ends, and then use a round brush to blow dry sections of hair straight but maintaining volume. Finish by adding loose waves around the face with a curling iron and brush out.
Teased And Textured Ponytails At Omondi
Get the look: Blow dry hair and use a flat iron to straighten with Oribe Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray to protect the hair from heat damage. Then with precision add extensions to give it length. Make a center part and spritz with Oribe Superfine Hairspray before gathering it in a tight ponytail with an elastic bungee. Pin set curl the hair six inches away from the base of the ponytail and then press the base a flat iron. Allow curls to cool for 15 minutes. Remove hair pins and brushed out curls lightly with a paddle brush. To complete the style, coat the hairline and ponytail base with L'Oréal Elnett Satin Strong Hold Hair Spray.
Stevie Nicks-esque Hair At Reem Acra
Get the look: Starting with freshly-shampooed hair, make a clean middle part and rough dry hair with finger tips using a blow-dryer with a sock diffuser to make sure the hair is not too fluffy. Next, come through the hair with a wide-tooth comb to smooth out any tangles. Starting from mid-shaft to ends, and then from roots to ends, spray hair with René Furterer VOLUMEA volumizing conditioning spray - no rinse and comb product through the hair. Keeping the hair at the crown flat, take random sections from the back and gently twist them to bring out the texture. Use the palms of your hands to flatten hair at the crown and push it behind the ears. Add a dab of René Furterer VEGETAL SCULPTING GEL for extra hold.
Gypsy Hair At Rodebjer
Get the look: Apply Purely Perfect Smooth Finish on top of hair and then run fingers through to the ends, giving it a natural texture. Then flat iron front section of strands, and braid back section underneath to make hair appear thinner on the ends. Complete the look by blow-drying hair and allowing pieces to fall in front of face.
