By now, it’s safe to say that what’s old is clearly new again. I’ve been seeing some of my admired celebrities with ’90s-inspired architecture and manicures, and my absolute TikTok For You Page has been abounding with bodies cutting bequest haircuts that are abundant on the layers and volume. One of the better looks demography amusing media by storm is the “Farrah Fawcett flip,” with a ’90s twist.
According to Biolage coil specialist and celebrity stylist Cynthia Alvarez, the trending crew is meant to be a mashup of abundant layers and abbreviate blind bangs. Typically, I’ve never been one for layers, and ultrashort blind bangs absolutely afraid me, but in an accomplishment to embrace all things retro, I absitively to accord the cut a try and see if it would become my new signature ‘do.
I went to Cie Salon in Malibu, CA, to see stylist Sonia Powell. Aback I showed her a few afflatus photos, she alone bare to booty one glance at my beard (which was in atrocious charge of a cut and some TLC) afore she got to work. The attending I was activity for was absolutely altered than annihilation I’d had the accomplished year. “What we’ve been accomplishing is activity for added of a blunt-cut feel — actual beeline with beneath layers,” Powell says. With this, she would add annular layers in the aback and lots of face-framing layers, additional blind bangs in the front.
As for what makes this hairstyle altered from the archetypal Farrah Fawcett appearance of the ’70s? Powell says it’s all about the band length. “I like to accumulate the layers best in the aback because that’s what modernizes the look,” she says. “We can get a alliance amid Farrah Fawcett and today’s time. It’s an adapted version.”
Once it came time to appearance my hair, I paid added absorption to how she created anatomy and movement. First, she blow-dried it with a annular besom to coil the ends under, abrogation the annular besom in my beard to advice “set” the style. (If you’re not as accomplished with a annular brush, don’t anguish — you can consistently use velcro rollers or pin coil your hair.) “Anything to set the anatomy in there. That’s what brings the layers to activity is abacus a little added bend,” Powell says. If your beard doesn’t authority a appearance well, Powell additionally suggests abacus a baby bulk of mousse to the acme of your arch afore blow-drying.
Then came the final touches. “Use a archetypal hairspray [instead of a arrangement spray],” she says. “Texture isn’t what we’re activity for with this look; it’s added about soft, pretty, and flowy. The hairspray helps authority the look, and it artlessly adds arrangement already you breach it up a bit.”
The best part? Powell says this crew is accessible to maintain. “You appetite to accumulate your approved trims going; if you’re accomplishing a lot of calefaction styling, you’ll accept to get it akin added often. The cut itself will aftermost a actual continued time.”
I’ve had my new crew for a little over a anniversary now, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. It has so abundant movement and body, and it air-dries like a dream. Plus, my beard looks so beautiful aback it’s pulled aback and I accept aloof my blind bangs in the front. If you’re attractive to get the ’90s-supermodel-meets-Farrah-Fawcett haircut, ask your stylist for annular layers in the aback with face-framing layers and blind bangs — you won’t affliction it.
