Another throwback trend? Oh yes! Perfect for when you want to take your glam quotient to a whole new level of awesomeness. Clearly, there’s some timeless magic happening there. All you need to nail this look is a sponge to bump up your hair and a lightweight wax or gel to keep your flyaways nice and smooth on the front. With some ‘70s inspired face-framing layers hanging down the face, it instantly elevated the overall styles.

We are calling it: Miley Cyrus is the connoisseur of the ‘70s hair trends and we’re officially obsessed with her take on this trend. This style in particular ditches all the haircut rules of the past decade and we are inspired to try this eccentric look asap. This shag mullet specifically is just polished enough to feel, dare we say always fresh. Miley is paving the way for shockingly cool ‘dos that always seem to explode in the salons shortly after.

These loosely tied micro braids make a statement of their own and it still looks good. The new iteration involves a more polished version of the hairstyle with cute face-framing micro braids falling down their face. The best part though? It even works on bed hair. We love how fashion girls of the present are embracing their natural texture with this hairstyle. All you need to do is spritz a salt spray into damp or dry hair to get those straight-from-the-beach waves and create loose tousled curls before adding in the braid. Take one-inch sections of hair to create a braid and use the almost invisible elastics to hold it to perfection.

Flipped-Out Curtain Bangs FTW!

Curtain bangs have been ruling the beauty world for a year now. We saw this wispy style on so many celebs including Ariana Grande and trust us, it’s here to stay. The one thing about curtain bangs that we’re fully sold on is how easy they actually are to style. It’s also a great way to change your style without doing anything too dramatic like changing your colour or sacrificing your length. P.S.: Flipped-out edges will add an extra 70s-inspired oomph to your look.

Scarf In The Hair

Looking for an easy-peasy way to style your long-AF hair? This proves that you don’t need anything more than a scarf to make even a basic ponytail look like a million bucks. This can be made simply by replacing your usual hairband with a cute scarf and you’ll enjoy a cool new look. The ‘70s were all about the fun, carefree, and hippie-esque vibe. And TBH, so are we today. Bookmark this one for when you want to make a statement with minimal effort.

The Timeless Blunt Cut

Calling out all the minimal beauty lovers: If you do not want to indulge in layered or high maintainability hairstyles, this one can be the perfect fit for you. Not only is the blunt hairdo look undeniable chic but it’s a celeb-approved way to take your style up a notch. From Alia Bhatt to Anushka Sharma- this look has been spotted on a number of B-town divas.
