70s fashion is coming this fall and I’m kind of excited about it! I’m slowly seeing myself gravitate towards browns, orange, and gold so I’m ready to slip a bit of this era into my wardrobe. In addition to clothing, I’m really feeling the big 70s waves and curls that go along with this decades’ style. I’ve put together a hair tutorial on how to get that volume-ized curl look that’s perfect for this fall! Let’s go!
70s Waves Hair Tutorial
I started with prepped, dry hair. I washed and conditioned my hair and put on a generous helping of Suave Pro Curls Mousse (picked up from Kroger) to give my hair a base to hold my 70s waves and give an extra oomph of volume–it’s the backbone of my 70s style! One my mousse was on, I let my hair air dry while I applied my makeup for the day and got dressed. You could also rough dry with a hairdryer if you’re pressed for time.
I section off my hair with hair elastics and start with the bottom layer for my curls.
My holy grail of curling rods–The Sultra Bombshell curling rod! This rod heats up really fast and holds the curl for DAYS. Make sure you’re stocked up on dry shampoo because you’ll be wearing this style for a couple days!
I grab a 1 inch section of hair at a time, grab the ends together, and wrap it around the curling wand. Make sure that you’re not flattening the section of hair when its being wrapped, but let it naturally twist into a rope. This allows for the ‘imperfect’ curls that have more volume and give a messy 70s waves look.
Once the bottom layer is complete, section out another layer and continue to curl, curl, curl! Continue with all layers until your hair is completely curled.
Once all pieces are curled, I run my fingers through my hair to softly brush it out, amp up the volume, and mess it around a bit. For this 70s waves look, the messier–the better!
