The '70s Fringe Revisited... by Darrel Starkey

As hair salons across the UK get ready to re-open and clients are eager to have their hair looking and feeling incredible, many are open to the idea of a style transformation. Could the classic 1970s fringe really cut it in 2021!? Darrel Starkey presents 3 stunning alternatives (see gallery below).

That 70’s Fringe

Inspired by decade in which fashion dictated that anything went (providing it was big, bold and in your face!) the fringe was hugely popular on the likes of Farrah Fawcett. It’s voluminous wave, soft placement and beautiful shine made it one of the most sought after looks of the 1970s.  

Fast forward to 2021, the 70’s fringe is back and bigger than ever. A root enhanced voluminous wave, stronger placement and of course the shine, it’s set to be hugely popular with clients who are looking for change. Worn in a middle parting, the split fringe works extremely well for those looking to change up their look without drastically change their colour or length.

The fringe works well with beautiful barrel curls or beach waves, with both parts of the style complimenting each other, with a very glamorous finished look. Volume is key in this look, focussing on volume at the roots of the fringe and the under section of the hair. The result –  a real natural, beautiful look.
