These '70s Beauty Trends Are Still Going Strong
We can't say we're too surprised by the staying power of the '70s resurgence. After all, it's hard to get sick of that free-spirited approach to style and beauty—an emphasis on keeping things natural, sunny, and casual by day, and experimenting with the boundaries of over-the-top glam by night. It's fun, it's fabulous, and it doesn't appear to be going anywhere fast.
See which '70s trends we're still loving now.
The goal: bouncy, touchable waves that boogie when you so much as tilt your head. (And with Bey's jewel-toned eye makeup? A perfect pairing.) To get the most authentic look possible, center-part your hair and wrap small sections around hot rollers, keeping your roots relatively flat. Once the curls have set, take out the rollers and brush out the waves a little with your fingers. A flexible hairspray is a must: Try R+Co's Outer Space ($17).
On the flipside, a sleek center part (as demonstrated by girl of the moment Alicia Vikander) can read just as glam, especially when paired with a gilded eye look. The trick is to tame all flyaways with a smoothing cream or oil. (We like to dab a bit of Christophe Robin's Moisturizing Lavender Hair Oil, $47, on our fingertips and gently comb through our strands.)
Let's be clear: The goal here is more "healthy glow" than "fake bake," so keep it subtle, not orange. We're faking some summer sun in February with French Girl Organics Lumière Bronzing Oil ($36), an all-natural body oil with a faint, flattering shimmer. Extend the Midas touch to your face with a gold cream shadow and a great highlighter, like Ilia's Polka Dots and Moonbeams Illuminator ($34).
We'll take braids in any way, shape, or form, but leave it to Olivia Palermo to take the festival staple and make it couture-ready. Our only pointer? Get creative.
