Times gone by: The Original Textured Tresses

Looking back it's clear to see the inspiration we get from those gorgeous ladies who wore their hair in typical 'California Girl' fashion. Carefree, textured and bombshell shades of blonde, it had that sex appeal thanks to Farrah Fawcett in the 70's and Brigitte Bardot in the 60's. Peek-a-boo fringes, loose waves and volume, perfect for blustery Winter weather (to those reading in sunnier climes, I'm jealous!)
The 70's also gave us a great rock look, and Debbie Harry showed those with shorter hair that a blunt fringe, and shaggy layers was effortless and only got better as the party went on. It was a great time for great hair, I know one of the trends on the catwalks at LFW was poker straight hair, but for me it'll always be better messy.
To recreate the Farrah look, I use my Enrapture Totem Styler* along with L'Oreal Paris Matt & Messy shine free Sea Salt Spray*, which is pretty much texture in a bottle. I've got a full review coming on this coming soon, along with a video on how to recreate your own texture up do...

  3. I love Bardot's hair...if I could go back to any hair era it would be the 60's.
