Stay Classy, Paul Mitchell Schools: Hairstyles from the 1970s

1. The “Farrah Fawcett”

She has beautiful eyes, and her hair smells like cinnamon! This Angel’s fabulously feathered hair couldn’t have been more flawless. Women across America sought after her “flippy curled” look, dashing to the salon for her coveted long shag cut. To get her bodacious curls; go for a thicker, feathered fringe; pump up the volume with a blow-dryer and round brush; curl your layers up and out; and spritz with Paul Mitchell Extra-Body Firm Finishing Spray for added texture.

2. The Afro

For a far-out style that can be worn both by groovy men and righteous ladies, you should go with the fro. If you got yourself a curly set of locks, achieve this look with moisturizing products and a wide teeth comb to fluff and beautify your new ‘do.

3. The Shag

If you like to eat ice cream and enjoy a nice pair of slacks, then perhaps the shag is for you. This multi-layered haircut was characterized by choppy volume and sassy, feathered ends. Just like the fro, this shagadelic cut was worn by both dudes and chicks, and is still a popular look today.

4. Long & Straight

Garth, if I gave you some money out of my wallet, would that ease the pain of how foxy this next look is? Unlike the shaggy hairstyles of the 1970s, the stick-straight, long-locked look was layer-free, and worn with a simple center part or fringe. To achieve the highest honor of 70s-sleek hair, use a pump of Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum before styling for a smooth, shiny and frizz-free look.

5. The #1 News Anchor

Breaking News. For only the finest London gentlemen, and a quaff so unrivaled it could only be sculpted by the hands of Michelangelo, Ron Burgundy’s blue-ribbon locks encompass the look dozens of aspiring anchormen would sacrifice their best suit for. Whether he’s using the Tea Tree Shaping Cream, or has been blessed by Zeus himself, we don’t know how to put this, but he’s kind of a big deal.  Exceptionally combed and insured by the Lloyd’s of London for $1,500, Ron’s hair isn’t just a top-notch haircut, but a beacon for all barbers, everywhere.

Stay classy, Paul Mitchell Schools.
