2010's Wavy Hairstyles Inspired By The 70s And Farrah

Sadly, Farrah Fawcett is no longer with us, but her beautiful mane of big hair is making waves in 2010. In some ways, it's a wonderful tribute to a great actress who changed the way women look at hair with her 70s layered, wavy hairstyle.

Everyone wanted the Farrah do. And many tried to copy it throughout the years. And now in 2010, it has made another fabulous entrance into the world of beauty. Wavy, tousled hair is hot, inspired from below-the-shoulder blunt hairstyles from the 1970s.....the hair with the front and side layers. Volume, volume, volume.
Even Jennifer Lopez was rocking the 70s at the recent Grammy awards show, and she has never looked better!
Stylist Robert Vetica explains to Elle magazine how he got JLo's hair to turn 70's sexy:
First, he trimmed the bottom to one length. "When you blunt the hair it makes curls appear stacked and gives volume at the ends". Next, he blew strands dry with a round brush to maintain hair’s buoyancy and fashioned a middle part. Misting a mild fixing spray, he then created spirals with a one-inch curling iron. Working from the back to the front on each side, he finger-brushed the set with Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream (“It holds the wave and takes out any dryness from the curling iron”). For a va-va-voom finish, Vetica smoothed waves with a bristled brush and backcombed under each section using a wide-tooth comb.

Golden-haired Julianne Hough(below) is another celebrity who was wearing the Farrah hairstyle at a red carpet event.
To get the look, you need lots of hair or hair extensions. You will also have to invest in some volumizers like root lifting gel or mousse. And you definitely need a blow dryer, curling iron, and/or hot rollers. And lastly, a blast of hairspray!
And would you believe this? Because we are having a hard time thinking this is true....But someone is selling a lock of Farrah's hair at an online auction. Is it really Farrah's hair? The seller claims it is. And it's on the block for $1,000, and has been there since July. Take a look here.
That's quite tacky to do. We believe Farrah Fawcett deserves better. Her beautiful big hair lives on, and she remains an icon to millions.

I'm thrilled to read this news as this past weekend my wonderful new hair stylist did just that to my fabulous head of hair. I went from long, one length hair to layers and layers of fullness. I am learning to use a round brush to re-create his masterpiece. I love my new look and am thrilled to be on top of the fashion style!!!
