Retro Chic Hairstyle - Neo 70s Waves

Soft, undone, neo-seventies waves with sweeping bangs are 'the' fashion accessory to pair with your vintage outfit this season. This retro-chic hairstyle embodies the liberal and laid-back spirit of the '70s and makes a big fashion statement while remaining effortlessly chic to wear every day.

In this article, we'll tell you how to create neo-seventies waves – one of the most popular women's hairstyles that not only defined the '70s era but has also made a big comeback this season!

You'll need:

- Volume inject hair mousse

- Curling iron

- Tail comb

- Heat protectant hairspray

- Strong hold hairspray

Get the Look

Step One

Apply a tiny amount of volume inject hair mousse through your hair – from the roots to the tips. This product, as the name suggests, will make your hair look voluminous and give it superior hold.

Step Two

Comb your hair to detangle knots and spread the product evenly throughout your mane.

Step Three

Using a tail comb, trace out a sharp middle part.

Step Four

Spritz your hair generously with heat protectant hairspray and divide it into 6-8 vertical sections.

Step Five

Curl the lower 2/3rds of each hair section on a medium-barreled curling iron to create soft waves cascading down from the level of your cheekbones.

Step Six

Once you've created the waves, spritz them with a generous mist of strong hold hairspray. The product will make the pretty curves stay intact for up to 24 hours. Also, mist the back of your comb with some hairspray and smooth it over the top of your head to tame flyaways and lend a smooth finish to your loose hairstyle.

Wear your loose retro waves to work, to a party, on a date or to a wedding!
