Farah Fawcett helped to make feathered hair an iconic look during the 1970s, and the most recognizable part of her style was the beautiful flick she wore at the front. With the bangs rolled magically outward, away from the face, this 'do has really stood the test of time. It looks just as good today as it did 40 years ago!

If you want to try it on your own tresses, you might be surprised at just how easy this hairstyle is to recreate...

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse
Tail comb
Curling iron
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: Apply Volume Inject Mousse evenly through damp hair and blow-dry. This will help to lift the hair, giving it plenty of body. If your hair is quite fine, flip your head upside down when it's almost dry then blast the rest.

Step two: Once dried, use a tail comb to part your hair to one side. Comb the hair through to fix your part into place.

Step three: Next, us a medium-barrel curling iron to curl the bottom two thirds of your hair in 1" or 1 ½" sections.

Step four: When you get to the front, wrap the ends of your bangs around the curling iron and roll them back around in the direction of your ear. Do this on both sides, but on the side with more hair, you can make the curl a little lower down.

Step five: For long-lasting hold, spray your new style all over with Bold Control Hairspray. This will ensure your vintage flick stays in place for up to 24 hours.
