We love this sexy look from Cara Delevingne; the color and style is perfect for anyone who enjoys feeling like a bombshell. With a center-part and height at the crown, there’s influence from the teased styles of the sixties and seventies, but the rumpled, rolled-out-of-bed finish is all about the shabby chic of the modern girl about town. What really sets the look apart is the color. A dirty, golden sandy blonde, it makes an amazing match to Cara’s creamy complexion, while simultaneously striking a remarkable contrast to her piercing blue eyes. With the advent of dry shampoo, messy long styles like this are easy to create at home; click for tips. . .

70s 4

After days of meh hair and no-makeup makeup at the early rounds of the collections, Diane Von Furstenberg finally brought us some supermodel beauty glamour—inspired by herself. The hair and makeup were heavily influenced by Diane in her Studio 54 heydey with nods to the high-spirited ‘70s nightlife. The beauty team created the disco hair by prepping each catwalker’s hair with gel and setting the length with a curling wand before pinning in place. Thirty minutes before the show, the hair was brushed out to kinky perfection and topped with a floral hair accessory. Curls and exotic florals? Count me in! It’s not to late to rock this fresh look.

spring hair

From mod crops to Bardot bouffants to sleek, center parted strands, this season’s looks encompass the full range of styles from the sixties and seventies. This provides a polarized aesthetic: big curls or silky smoothness, teased volume or flat sleekness, extra long or tightly tailored length. These dichotomies provide plenty of options for chameleon-like style changes. Look disco fabulous one day and Jackie-O chic the next. Learn to create looks from both decades in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

preenThe ‘70s were in full throttle at Preen by Thornton Bregazzi––the models not only donning groovy attire but some seriously big hair. According to, the beauty team wanted to create a look somewhere between roller girl and full on Afro. Thinking less Farah Fawcett and more disco, the pros backstage used a rick-raking technique to style models’ curls before pinning, brushing straight, ironing and gelling them into a hair cloud. Phew! Could this be the next big thing? It’s not exactly the most wearable style, but anything with texture and curl is fine by me.
