Sometimes the best hairstyles can be found in the past so if you want to change up your locks, look to the disco-era for inspiration. Feathered hair, made popular by actress Farrah Fawcett, was all the rage back in the 70’s and early 80’s and is easy to pull off today. If you lived through these years and are feeling nostalgic, or are planning to change your look with a retro hairstyle, grab your hot rollers and get ready to turn heads.
Things You'll Need
Skip washing your hair for two days. It’s easier to curl hair when it isn’t squeaky clean.
Plug in hot rollers and let them heat up. Check to see if they are hot. Most rollers have a heat sensor dot that changes colors, which lets you know they have reached the right temperature.
Use a comb to remove tangles and knots from your hair. Hair should be smooth and dry.
Separate the top section of hair from the bottom section using a hair clip or a ponytail holder.
Grab a 1-inch section of hair (hair closest behind your ear) from the bottom section. Apply a curling lotion or hair gel to the section. Hold a medium roller in a vertical position and roll your hair up. Secure the roller in place with a clip.
Continue this process on the next section of hair. Repeat this technique on each side of your head, working from front to back on the bottom section of your hair. Remember to hold the roller in a vertical position so you get long tube-like curls.
Unclip the top section of your hair. Separate another section from the top section so that you have a medium section of hair to work with. Use a clip to secure the top section once again.
Use a small sized roller on the middle section of your hair. Continue the techniques in step 4 on this middle section. Work from front to back on this section.
Unclip the top section of your hair. Grab the section of hair that is in front of your ear. Holding the small roller in a vertical position, roll it forward, towards your face. Repeat this technique on the rest of the side sections of your hair. Work from front to back.
Grab a section of the remaining front pieces of hair and, holding the large roller in a vertical position, roll hair away from your face. Repeat this technique on the opposite side.
Allow rollers to cool. Remove clips and rollers gently so as not to ruin the curl.
Use a large round brush to brush through your hair. This will loosen curls and fluff them up.
Curl front section of hair with a large barrel curling iron. Spray with hairspray.
