By now the 70s have been emulated in fashion and beauty for longer than the decade actually spanned––and yet we keep wanting more. At the Coach Spring 2015 collection, the decade was very much alive with updates on flared silhouettes and furry pastel coats. And to complement the cool girl attitude of the decade, the models wore low side parts swiped across the forehead. The vintage-inspired hovered softly over one eye and were slightly boyish yet still feminine. Care to try on this flowy feeling look?

When we talk about updos we’re usually talking about the back. We define upswept styles by what happens behind the head, but the area around your face can make or break even the most masterfully executed shape. Give your favorite style a sophisticated finish by adding a bit of height, a wispy faux-fringe and romantic texture. Get simple steps for creating the perfect front to any updo in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
