The feather hair trend is set to fly in 2022

The retro haircut explained

BEAUTYcrew Content Producer / July 01 2022

In a strange turn of events, our favourite hair trends of the last few months have managed to converge, resulting in the birth of a retro-inspired hair trend that we’re genuinely happy about. 

Introducing: The feather haircut trend; a lovely little mashup of the wolf cut, octopus haircut, and the ‘70s blowout respectively. 

Matilda Djerf is at the helm of this trend and bravely pioneering a new path for a hairstyle we traditionally associate with Farrah Fawcett.

The modern version of feathered hair embraces the same light, fluid, full-bodied layers synonymous with Fawcett’s legendary locks, but there’s a lot less fluff and flick going on.

Margot Robbie’s interpretation of Barbie has even been seen sporting a lengthy version of the voluminous style. Actress Rowan Blanchard gave us cues on how to rock the romantic look on shorter hair too, with tighter waves and a face-framing fringe.

How to style feathered hair

Follow the lead of the folks over on TikTok and pick up the same tools Fawcett would have relied on for her signature blowout – velcro rollers…

Feathered hair is also the perfect transition haircut for growing out your fringe – just sayin’...
