If you’re feeling nostalgic for the groovy vibes of the 60s and 70s, then you’re going to love spring’s hottest hairstyles. According to Lensi White, master stylist at Signatures Salon in Lake Charles, some of the looks that recently went down the runway at New York Fashion Week would have looked right at home at Studio 54. Here are the hairstyles she’s anticipating seeing a lot more of this spring. 


In the South, big hair is never really out of style, but on this year’s New York Fashion Week runways, volume made a major comeback. And anyone who loves a high hairstyle can tell you that when it comes to big, beautiful styles, product means the difference between looking great all day and hair that falls flat. "Think full on 60’s volume – so bigger is better,” White says. "Bumble and Bumble has a whole line of thickening products that will get you to the volume of choice and last all day.”


In years past, short hairstyles featured a lot of layers, but this spring sharper-edged, blunter bobs are all the rage with all the most stylish celebrities, according to White: 

"If you are into shorter styles, for this season keep them more blunt and less layered,” White says. "1970’s inspired bobs are what Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss, and Hailey Bieber are sporting right now. Though if you still want separation with the blunt bob use Bumble and Bumble’s Brillantine for that slept in perfection.”


Another major runway trend was hair so shiny it looks like glass. Getting ultra-glossy "glass hair” takes a lot of moisture from good products and a few visits to the salon. 

"Alexander McQueen, Fendi, and Burberry, to name a few, were sending high gloss looks down the runways at Fashion Week,” White says. "Glass hair is sure to become only more popular this coming year. To keep the glassy hair, it’s not only about styling products but, more importantly, getting regular treatments for your tired hair to revive and replenish the moisture so it can shine bright like a diamond.”


For a few years, mens’ hairstyles have been all about the shorter sides with the longer top slicked into place with paste or pomade. This year, more and more men are choosing to let their natural hair texture shine:

"For mens’ hair, I’m still seeing the ultra-groomed fade with longer swept back top,” White says. "But to modernize it, let your natural texture go. Let the curls free. To keep them in line, use a light pomade, wax, or cream. Bumble and Bumble Grooming Cream or Brillantine would work fabulously.”

And it’s not just women who’ll be sporting 70s style in the spring. Those far-out looks are back for men, as well.

"For the men, the 70s are going strong,” White says. "Grow your locks out, maybe with a little bit of face scruff, and if you are feeling fine, add a pair of aviators into the mix.”

And while you’re getting ready to rock your retro hair, it wouldn’t hurt to throw on some ABBA and brush up on those disco moves.
