The hairstyle trends of the post-lockdown phase are entirely under the motto freedom and lightness. So it's no wonder that we took inspiration for our hair in the 1970s. After all, this era stands for hippie culture, free love, and revolution. And that is what the hairstyle trends of this time radiate. The best thing: The retro hair is not only trendy in summer 2021, but it is also particularly uncomplicated and easy to style. We reveal which three hairstyle trends from the 70s are celebrating a comeback in summer 2021.
This hairstyle trend arose in lockdown. When we all didn't get a chance to go to the hairdresser, many of us decided to just let our hair grow long. Straight hair with an accurate middle parting in the mermaid look is a nice way to present extra long hair in a well-groomed way. Singer Cher and Ali MacGraw were probably among the most famous wearers of this trend hairstyle in the 1970s. Isabel Marant brought the hairstyle trend to her Spring / Summer 2021 catwalk and styled the hairstyle true to the original with an accurate center parting and straight hair.
The pony in the undone look became a cult in the 1970s thanks to style icons such as Jane Birkin. The pony is characterized by the fact that it is graded and smoothly blends into the rest of the hair on the sides. In the summer of 2021, the look of this nonchalant hairstyle trend is particularly popular and it exudes a lot of summery good-mood vibes. The best: It's ultra uncomplicated to style and can also be waxed out very easily.
The shag hairstyle made Stevie Nicks and Mick Jagger a hairstyle trend with a rocker attitude in the 1970s. The haircut usually reaches just over the shoulder, is layered, and is often combined with long, also layered bangs. The fluffy steps are again the perfect haircut in summer 2021 to highlight natural hair structures. The advantage: Those who follow the specifications of their natural hair need less time with styling.
