Your current hair style is working for you, right? (After all, you finally figured out which part is right for your face shape.) Well, according to TikTok, your hair needs a retro makeover, specifically the big and super-bouncy style popularized by 1970s icon Farrah Fawcett. It's surprisingly flattering on a variety of hair textures, which is why a diverse range of women are rocking it. Here's an easy how-to, along with some styling tools that will help you go big...because this summer, we're done with staying home.
1. Wield that Hot Brush
After your hair has cooled from blow drying, use a round brush to blend in your curls. Or, if you're starting with wet hair, dry and curl it in one step using a dryer brush.

PureWow staffers love a good hot air brush; one editor gave the nod to this one because it makes drying/styling more efficient: "It gets me 20 minutes of my life back!"
2. Or Use a Curling Iron
For a Farrah-like flow, be sure to spray your locks with a healthy mist of heat-protectant. Then, curl sections of hair away from your face. To achieve perfectly sized loose curls, you'll need a wide-barreled curling iron with a diameter of 1.25 inches or more.

3. Flip Your Hair—Like, Really Flip it
The best part about watching people try the Farrah Fawcett hair trend on TikTok is seeing how easy it is to pull off (and the grand finale where they flip their hair repeatedly to fluff out their waves is so satisfying). Add a swipe of shiny lip gloss and your ‘70s throwback style is complete.
