It will be a while before we can finally dance the night away at a party. The new hairstyle trend French Disco Hair lets us at least dream of glamorous nights and conjures up a little night out feeling in everyday life. We explain what distinguishes the 70s-inspired hairstyle and how you can easily restyle it.
The entire fashion world is currently indulging in retro fever because numerous fashion trends from the catwalk are inspired by the 70s, 80s, or 90s and revive the looks of that time with a modern update. But a wave of nostalgia is not only spreading in fashion: the new hairstyle trends for spring and summer 2021 are also creating cool retro vibes. Best example? Is the new hype about French Disco Hair, which - as the name suggests - is inspired by the disco look of French women in the 70s and can already be seen everywhere on Instagram.
The hairstyle trend is characterized by large, outwardly twisted curls that frame the face and give the hair a glamorous volume boost. The mane can be worn in a classic way in the middle parting; But even in a duet with a deep side parting, the hairstyle looks très chic. If you want, you can also tease the top hair a little and hold it at the back of the head with a clip.
And very important: the hairstyle does not have to fit perfectly, but may look a bit disheveled - just in the style of the casual French women.
For the new hairstyle trend for French Disco Hair, dry hair is shaped into large curls. The best way to do this is to use a curling iron with a wide diameter or use a large round brush and hairdryer. For the typical retro look, the curls are also preferably styled outwards, i.e. the hair is wrapped around the curler away from the face. Finally, the curls are loosened with the fingers so that they fall nicely fluffy over the shoulders. Finally, fix the hairstyle with a little hairspray - and the look is perfect.
Extra tip: For more volume, you can knead a hazelnut-sized portion of volume foam into damp hair before styling or spread some dry shampoo on the roots and gently tease the hair with your fingers.
French Disco Hair works best with medium-length hair that plays around the shoulders and collarbone. In addition, gentle steps are beneficial to create a voluminous layered look. Long forehead fringes in the curtain bangs style are also ideal and are best blown out with a round brush.
