By now, it is protected to say that what’s previous is formally new once more. I have been seeing a few of my favourite celebrities with ’90s-inspired makeup and manicures, and my complete TikTok For You Web page has been flooded with individuals sporting throwback haircuts which can be heavy on the layers and quantity. One of many greatest seems taking social media by storm is the “Farrah Fawcett flip,” with a ’90s twist.
In accordance with Biolage curl specialist and movie star stylist Cynthia Alvarez, the trending haircut is supposed to be a mashup of voluminous layers and brief curtain bangs. Usually, I’ve by no means been one for layers, and ultrashort curtain bangs positively scared me, however in an effort to embrace all issues retro, I made a decision to offer the lower a try to see if it could develop into my new signature ‘do.
I went to Cie Salon in Malibu, CA, to see stylist Sonia Powell. After I confirmed her a number of inspiration pictures, she solely wanted to take one look at my hair (which was in determined want of a lower and a few TLC) earlier than she started working. The look I used to be going for was fully totally different than something I might had the previous 12 months. “What we have been doing goes for extra of a blunt-cut really feel — very straight with fewer layers,” Powell says. With this, she would add spherical layers within the again and plenty of face-framing layers, plus curtain bangs within the entrance.
As for what makes this coiffure totally different from the standard Farrah Fawcett model of the ’70s? Powell says it is all in regards to the layer size. “I wish to hold the layers longer within the again as a result of that is what modernizes the look,” she says. “We will get a wedding between Farrah Fawcett and at the moment’s time. It is an up to date model.”
As soon as it got here time to model my hair, I paid further consideration to how she created physique and motion. First, she blow-dried it with a spherical brush to curve the ends below, leaving the spherical brush in my hair to assist “set” the model. (In the event you’re not as skilled with a spherical brush, don’t be concerned — you possibly can at all times use velcro rollers or pin curl your hair.) “Something to set the physique in there. That is what brings the layers to life is including just a little further bend,” Powell says. In case your hair does not maintain a method effectively, Powell additionally suggests including a small quantity of mousse to the crown of your head earlier than blow-drying.
Then got here the ultimate touches. “Use a traditional hairspray [instead of a texture spray],” she says. “Texture is not what we’re going for with this look; it is extra about gentle, fairly, and flowy. The hairspray helps maintain the look, and it naturally provides texture when you break it up a bit.”
The most effective half? Powell says this haircut is straightforward to keep up. “You wish to hold your common trims going; for those who’re doing a whole lot of warmth styling, you may must get it trimmed extra usually. The lower itself will final a really very long time.”
I’ve had my new haircut for just a little over per week now, and I could not be happier with the outcomes. It has a lot motion and physique, and it air-dries like a dream. Plus, my hair seems so cute when it is pulled again and I’ve simply my curtain bangs within the entrance. In the event you’re seeking to get the ’90s-supermodel-meets-Farrah-Fawcett haircut, ask your stylist for spherical layers within the again with face-framing layers and curtain bangs — you will not remorse it.
