7 Ways to Wear the Perfect 70s Retro Feathered Hairstyle

We've got 70s feathered hair fever and it's highly contagious.

We are happy to welcome back 70s retro feathered hair into our daily styling inspo. Feathered hair was an iconic style during the 70s and could be seen on the big screen, the runway, and everywhere in between. While back then it may have been overly feathered for one head, it has gracefully matured and come back looking modern and refreshed.

This is a great hairstyle for women who love keeping their locks on the longer side but want a more mature and somewhat moodier look.

This classic 70s retro feathered hairstyle is as 70s-inspired as it gets. Textured, moody, and full of choppy layers, this mullet-like style is one of our favorite classic 70s styles. If you’re looking for an easy way to add a ton of texture to your style, be sure to grab a bottle of TRESemmé Dry Texture Finishing Spray. This dry texture spray will add layered movement and volume to your feathered style.

Add a bright pop of color into your feathered style by incorporating blue tips into your style. We love this iteration of the feathered retro style because it adds even more personality to an already dramatic look. We recommend using The Good Stuff Color Protect Milk to protect your color and keep it nice and vibrant.

70s hair was all about volume and feathered layers. Ask your stylist for long layers throughout your hair with the ends feathered. Feathering the ends will create that unique texture that was so popular durng the decade. Next, use a round brush and hair dryer to blow out your hair, then you’ll be all set.
