This is the decade you need to embrace this summer…
Summer 2021 will see the return of 70s hair – mullets, bangs, and layered shags will become the go-to styles but with some modern updates!
The latest incarnation of the mullet has been dubbed wolf hair. It works on pretty much every hair type and it gives a lot of movement and texture. If you have thick hair, this style will work because it comprises lots of layers, which can texturize thick hair. For those with fine hair, the addition of layers adds volume to the hair. The style can even be adapted to work with curly hair! In terms of length, it can be adapted to suit any length from the collar bone and beyond. To style it, a salt spray is a must-have. Available at the Pastels Salon eStore, Techni Art L’Oréal hair spray is a texturizing salt spray that gives your hair that on-trend beachy effect, without the rough touch and would be a great choice for this style. For those with curly hair, a curl crème such as L’Oréal Techni Art Siren Waves or Redken Curvaceous Ringlet can help style while keeping frizz at bay. This low-maintenance look is edgy, cool, and current and a great choice for those who live in Dubai and will be here during the summer months when it is hottest and you want an easy, unfussy, on-point style that requires minimal effort.
Forget platinum blondes, this season it’s the return of golden, honey hues and thanks to Netflix faves such as Queen’s Gambit and Bridgerton, strawberry blonde is also enjoying the spotlight, with style setters such as Gigi Hadid embracing the shade.
Seen on Kaia Gerber recently and a legacy of the lockdown, curtain bangs offer a range of styling options and can be pinned back easily, making it a perfect transitional style. The other take on the fringe this summer are mod bangs. As seen on Rihanna, these are typically heavier and thicker but styled across the forehead to sit right above the lashes.
Of course, if you really want to be on point this season, you can mix and match all of these elements to create a modern-day Farrah Fawcett, the ultimate 70s hair inspo – just add the iconic red swimsuit to nail the look completely!
