The 70s Blowout Autumn/Winter 2016


At Diane Von Furstenberg’s AW16 New York Fashion Week show, glamorous 70s-inspired pieces dominated with 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. And the hair? TRESemmé New York Fashion Week Ambassador, Orlando Pita, created the polished, bouncy 70s Blowout that transported models back to the disco decade, with the flick of a round bristle brush!


In their sequinned 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 70s glamour.

Perfect for that polished, yet effortlessly voluminous look, this style looks great with curled-under ends, for extra bounce, or go all-out with glam, bold waves – we saw both on the DVF catwalk and on the street. As glamorous as this hairstyle may be, we spotted 70s 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 70s Blowout is easy to achieve with just a hair-dryer and a round bristle brush. Here’s how:

  • 01
    A model with part of her blonde hair up in hair clips and a stylist applying mousse to it

    STEP 1:

    Wash hair with the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume reverse-wash system for a beautifully bouncy base without any weight. Then apply a generous amount of TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Hair Maximiser and Mousse on damp hair for a texture boost.

    STEP 2:

    Rough-dry hair and blowout with a round bristle brush to create a natural, sleek finish. Coil hair under at the ends for a polished result or create a curlier style with a large-barrel curling wand.

  • 03

    STEP 3:

    Lightly tease hair at the roots to create extra height.

    STEP 4:

    Finish with TRESemmé Ultimate Hold Hairspray to keep that sophisticated 70s style in place.

    Whether you’ve got an all-night disco to go to or simply want to add some old-school glamour to your look, the 70’s Blowout is an easy, chic answer to ultimate hair confidence.
