Do you dare this 70’s hairstyle brought up to date?
If you are a fan of the famous actress Farrah Fawcett, who died in June 2009, then we prefer to tell you that this new hair trend will make you jump for joy. We still remember her angelic face and her iconic brushing. In recent days, social networks (Instagram and TikTok in the lead) have been panicking with the appearance of the new hairstyle trend for spring 2021: the “fawcett flip” style! We explain to you.
Farrah Fawcett’s brushing is tearing off!
The retro and vintage trend is confirmed for this season. After the return of flip brushing and shag and mullet cuts, we are now in favor the fawcett flip. As its name suggests, it refers to Farrah Fawcett and uses the codes of her ultra voluminous brushing and her curtain bangs. We remember her ultra airy curls that frame the face. And if we thought about this hairstyle stored in the closet, big mistake!
This shattering return is even due to younger of us who have been having fun posting tutorials on the fawcett flip for a few days. They show and explain in pictures how to wear the mane of a lioness, while volume. And the least we can say is that the result is sensational !
Moreover, the stars were not mistaken. The fawcett flip was worn by Catherine Deneuve, Donna Summer, Tina Turner and even Lady Diana. More recently it has been sported by singer Ciara, model Jena Goldsack, singer Jenifer Lopez, actress Margot Robbie or actress Amanda Seyfried.
I have to say that its ultra glamorous look and quite simple to achieve (when we took the hand), highlights us in three brush strokes. A look that we will wear on a red carpet as well as to go to work in awakening the Carrie Bradshaw that sleeps in all of us.
How to do a fawcett flip?
We see you coming from here small craft. You want to try the hairstyle of the moment too! And you are right. After all, we might as well take advantage of the long hours of confinement that we are currently living …
To reproduce this hair-raising style, several techniques are available to you. First of all we have the curlers technique. As demonstrated by celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton in the video below:
Or, and it is much more realistic for our tastes, the technique of the round brush and the hair dryer ! Using these two tools, start by curling outward all the hair around your face, not forgetting the back. Next, shake your head up and down repeatedly and get up. A little hairspray and you find yourself look-alike for Farrah Fawcett:

Awesome isn’t it? Generally, the fawcett flip is more for those who want to keep their bangs or their locks that grow back on the sides. The gradient is even more appropriate to this hairstyle since it brings volume.
For the anecdote, Mariefrance.fr, reminds us that Farrah Fawcett’s iconic brushing is actually due to … a mistake ! After accidentally downgrading her lengths herself, the actress asked her hairdresser to rectify the damage by curling her hair outward to give her cut more movement. Like what… !
