Fringes, colours, flower power: The Bohemian look is celebrating its fashion comeback in the course of the seventies revival. Wonderfully casual, the seventies style is always classy and feminine. Which hairstyles make the popular hippie chic authentic? Find out here

  • When an attitude towards life becomes fashionable: The boho style originates from the sovereign subculture of the Bohemians, who openly rejected social conventions back in the 19th century as creative and easygoing free spirits. Since the values of the Bohemians were revived in the wild seventies, the hip decade was defined to a large extent by the boho look. Flowing fabrics, bright colours and casual cuts were among the fashion must-haves at that time. Today the seventies style is back and with it the boho look. A fondness for freedom and lightness is not only revealed by the clothing. The retro look also works well in our hair. What does it look like? Feminine, unconstrained and modern – we love it! Our top 3:

    Boho Style: Sassy Scarves

    Long, casual manes are an essential element of the seventies style. Now and then, the XL mane is preferably worn loose, often in combination with a centre parting and/or soft waves. Now trendsetters are adding a scarf, decorating themselves with the top accessory for seventies hair: Whether the pattern matches the outfit or creates a colourful contrast – the main thing is to tie it over the head like a hood, putting scarves at the top of the boho style! Fine fabrics such as silk for a classy fashion flair propel the look to the top of the fashion league. Not only that: Bad hair days can be skilfully covered up.

    Boho Style: Fringe Festival

    Every flower child in the seventies knew: Life is better on the fringe. We are eager to embrace this trend! A compact fringe extending slightly over the eyebrows is soaring to the top of the hairdo charts again. Blow-dried round or styled outwards to both sides – the fringe is leading the field. The fringe looks classy and feminine with long hair. Those seeking a more extravagant, ultra-modern appearance wear the fringe with a mid-length mane.

    Hair à la Farrah Fawcett: The style icons of the seventies became famous with the cult series 'Charlie’s Angels' and stand for what is probably the most well-known wave of all times even today. Signature feature of the heavenly glamour mane: Grandiose volume and endless layers, mostly turned outwards. The mane is at least shoulder length. Today we wear the trendy look in a much softer version: The fullness remains but appears much softer and more natural. Now all the hair is gently curled with finer layers. Here the trendy swingy shag or swag – a frayed layered cut with shorter hair on top – is really shown to advantage!
