The Schwarzkopf Look “70s Brushed“ combines a centre part with soft waves and blow-out strands with a sideswept fringe. Who should wear “70’s Brushed“ hair? Anyone who enjoys a properly styled look that is both elegant and nostalgic... but still modern, according to Armin Morbach. Faye Dunaway, Jane Fonda, Stefanie Powers – the Wonder Women of the 70s are unforgettable for their hair alone. Now their Seventies waves are back and more beautiful than ever, in this modern iteration. Simply draw a centre or side parting leave the top section straight while you form the lower sections into gentle waves using large round brushes. Set with hairspray – and your dreamy style is done.
Here's what makes the 70s Brushed look:
- Large, gentle waves, particularly in the hair ends, make the look beautifully natural.
- 1970s-style hairstyles give fine, thin locks soft volume.
- Whether you do a side or centre part: Draw a clear parting for this look. It helps the soft waves frame your face perfectly.

How to style the 70s Brushed look
- Wash and towel dry your hair.
- Distribute volumising mousse all over your hair, especially the ends.
- Blow dry over a round brush. Tip: Use three round brushes while blow drying. Roll into the front sections and leave to cool. The waves will last longer that way.
- Set the look with hairspray. Tip: For a rich colour, dye the hair a nice shade of brown – like Brillance Intensive-Color-Creme. For beautiful colour and shine, use a Glanz-Repair-Spülung before blow drying.
