Early 70s Hairstyle


Bangs and sides are backcombed and then smoothed into an angle up from the face. Hair is securely pinned.


Twist the nape section into a "French-seam."


The curls in the back are made by first backcombing the base in high elevation and placing a pin across the backcombing to secure the elevation.


The hair is smoothed over the finger. The end is placed on top of the base below. The curls are made from the bottom of the head to the top for stacking.


The center of the curl is pulled into a dangled position and sprayed into placed.


To gain more volume and height on top of the head, the hair is backcombed and first pinned at the scalp. The backcombing is repeated and now the pin is placed in a stand-up position. Border curls are "braided" into place. Ends are tucked under the base and pinned securely.
