Slowly but surely the voluminous, sweeping blowouts synonymous with the ‘70s have been sliding their way into our social feeds, red carpets and catwalks – and to say we’re into it is an understatement.
Trend-setting celebs like Dua Lipa, Doja Cat and Billie Eilish have been strutting their stuff looking like literal Charlies Angels and we want in.
If you love the retro feel of this trend or you’re just a sucker for big hair, here’s some quality hair inspiration to bombard your hairdresser with the next time you saunter into the salon.
Influencer Brittany Xavier’s take on the trend makes her look like the spitting image of Jaclyn Smith (AKA one kick-ass third of the original Charlies Angels cast). Farrah who?

Channel your inner flower child like Demi and the hippies that defined the early years of the iconic decade. Adorn your waves with nature-inspired accessories like flowers or butterflies and let the wind do the rest.

Got hair that won’t hold a curl to save itself? Lean into the relaxed texture of your hair and create loose waves that’ll have you looking like a Cher impersonator in all the right ways.

Channeling a more toned down version of the Farrah flick is easy; simply grab your preferred heat tool for creating curls and style your hair away from your face and let your cheekbones take centre stage.
