Here’s how we 70s teenagers got Farrah Fawcett Hair. From do-it-yourself cutting to an easy styling technique using a little styling gel, we loved trying to look like the popular movie star. Assuming you already have long hair, here’s how 70s fans and wannabes got Farrah Fawcett hair.

Get the Farrah Fawcett hair trim. With hair completely wet (such as right after shampooing), massage with a body-building leave-in styling gel, then bend over at the waist and comb hair straight towards the floor. Then gather hair and twist to the right until it’s very tight near the end. Trim off about a half inch of hair. Then, twist hair to the left until very tight near the end, and trim off another half inch of hair. This naturally layers your hair to be shorter near your face and longer in the back.

Get “big” Farrah Fawcett hair puffiness. In the bent over position, blow dry hair completely from roots to tips. Your previously applied styling gel should cover hair from scalp to ends, and drying your hair this way gives you “big” hair.

Get Farrah Fawcett hair feathering and curls. Stand upright and comb out tangles. With a curling iron, piece by piece wrap the ends of your now “big” hair into a curl (wrapping the curling iron in the ringlet position going away from your face as you wind each piece of hair). An alternative to the curling iron is to dampen the last three inches of hair, add a little more styling gel, then wrap each piece in a round brush the same way you did the curling iron, blow drying again until each new curl is completely dry and set. Fluff hair, then add a fake or real suntan and a home teeth whitening regime to complement your Farrah Fawcett Hair


  • If your hair is very long, each of your Farrah Fawcett hair trims can be longer, snipping off from between three quarters to one and a half inches after each twist, depending on how long it is.
