The 70s Blowout Autumn/Winter 2016
The Diane Von Furstenberg AW16 show at New York Fashion Week featured gloriously glamorous 70’s-inspired pieces, with lots of sassy spaghetti straps, plunging necklines, silk and sequins – a nod, perhaps, to the famously hedonistic New York nightclub, Studio 54, where Diane Von Furstenberg herself went dancing. As for the hair? The bouncy 70’s Blowout created by TRESemmé New York Fashion Week Ambassador Orlando Pita has a polished feel that transported models back to this disco decade with the flick of a round bristle brush!
In their sequined gowns and satin jumpsuits, DVF's models shimmered on the runway – with standout shiny hairstyles taking the look from top to toe. Va va voom volume and touchable texture ensured big, bold hair that held its own against the dazzling metallic and jewel colours showcased in this collection. The overall effect was one that screamed confidence, luxury and 70’s glamour.
This style is ideal for those occasions where you want to look perfectly put-together, but still keep hair loose and voluminous. You can create a sleek version with curled-under ends to get that bouncy feel, or go all out with bold waves – we saw both on the DVF catwalk and on the street. And while it’s a hairstyle that naturally lends itself to glamorous eveningwear, we spotted big 70’s blowouts looking equally amazing worn tumbling over the collar of a leather jacket or buttoned up wool coat. It’s the classic styles that are always the most versatile!
Whichever way you want to wear it, The 70’s Blowout is easy to achieve with just a hair dryer and a round bristle brush. Here’s how:
