These bangs are the key to the perfect 70s haircut: the waft fringe
Maybe it's because we haven't been able to go to the hairdresser for so long, but maybe also because of our great enthusiasm for the 70s hairstyle of Jenna Coleman in the BBC series "The Serpent" - one way or another, the " Waft Fringe "is the latest pony trend and we're already loving it. The retro silhouette is typical of the look - the long, layered bangs get shorter and shorter towards the forehead and play around the face - exactly as we saw it in the series character Marie-Andrée Leclerc played by Coleman, or in former times with Farrah Fawcett, Goldie Hawn, and Brigitte Bardot.
The "Waft Fringe" is inspired by stars from the 70s like Farrah Fawcett and a trend that we would like to try out immediately.
This pony trend is worth trying out if you want a change but don't dare to go for a full pony just yet, or even if you firmly believe that a pony just doesn't suit your face shape. The "waft fringe" is softer, looser, and can be styled in a myriad of ways to suit your personal style or the occasion. It's a flattering look that blends beautifully with the French girl aesthetic and requires little effort. Fawcett's bangs are particularly voluminous and dynamic, but a softer, more reserved variant is just as beautiful.
According to Guido Palau, hairstylist and contributing beauty editor in the UK, anyone can wear a pony. It is important that you wear the pony and not let the pony carry you. For the "Waft Fringe", he reveals the styling methods with which you can get the very special "Unfinished" effect that makes the hairstyle so special: "I would use a hairdryer and a round brush and split the bangs for that certain Get a 70s look. "
For everyday life, the expert recommends spraying the hair with water, then applying some structure spray from Bumble & Bumble, and then wearing a hood or a hairnet while the hair dries. "This gives you a natural texture," he explains. For a bit more Fawcett-style pizzazz, flip the longest and outermost section of the pony outward by gently twirling the hair with your fingers and using some hairspray for extra hold.
But can you also create the trend hairstyle yourself? After all, the hairdressers are still closed. Says Palau, "You can trim your bangs at home! Use kitchen scissors if you want." The only condition: "You must have enough confidence in yourself."
