If I could live in any decade, it would hands down be the ’70s—not because I find anything about the way of life particularly endearing, but rather I’m absolutely head over heels for the aesthetic. There are so many iconic ’70s makeup looks I can’t even count, and the fashion speaks for itself. I’m all in when it comes to flared jeans and supersized sunglasses.
However, as a beauty editor, I feel somewhat inclined to say that the single best thing about the ’70s was the hair. I’m so obsessed with ’70s hairstyles, in fact, that I have rocked the same ’70s-style, long, middle-parted mop for well over 10 years.
But it’s not just super-long hair that really defined the decade. Everything from shaggy lengths and fringes to blunt bobs and picked-out afros have remained some of the most timeless hairstyles around. And next year, it’s looking as though ’70s hair is going to be everywhere.
