The 70’s are back and what better way to channel the trend than with a hairstyle that defined the decade – the bouffant. Celebs are already jumping on this trend, with Cheryl Cole leading the pack.
As Cheryl stepped out under a tumbling tower of swept back curls for her first appearance on US X Factor, the critics were quick to doubt her Dallas inspired do. This all changed when style icon Sarah Jessica Parker championed the bouffant at a charity gala in New York just days later. This golden seal of approval meant the look soon became a trend and celebrities everywhere have been coifing their locks into big bouffants ever since.
The 70’s inspired bouffant is truly flattering on all, adding extra inches to height and even slimming the face. Now a firm favourite amongst celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez & Elle Macpherson, follow our simple steps to get the 70’s look:
- Blow dry sections of hair with a large round brush such as the Goody Ceramic Ionic 43mm Porcupine Hot Round Brush
- Roll each section of perfectly blow dried hair into a Goody Jumbo Self Holding Roller and pin using Goody Sectioning Clips
- Leave the hair to set before gently releasing into relaxed curls
- Take a section of hair from the front of the head and flip over the face
- Back comb the sectioned hair gently using a Goody Tail Comb
- Insert a Goody Simple Styles Volume Boost (or even two!) behind the backcombed hair to create height and secure with a Goody Bobby Pin. The secret hold from the Volume Boost will ensure your bouffant doesn’t fall flat
- Smooth the hair straight back over the Volume Boost and spritz with hairspray to secure the height

Last week saw the Classic BRIT Awards 2011 take over the Royal Albert Hall for a musical spectacular. The prestigious event was attended by the Duchess of Cornwall herself, and with a flurry of sequins came an array of elegant hairstyles.
Katherine Jenkins was the belle of the ball, teasing her hair into a loose romantic bun that didn’t distract from her sensational silver dress. Her golden locks had been set into gentle waves before being swept up to the side, to create a flattering loose bun. The Spin Pin from Goody is the perfect tool to create this style offering the hold of 20 Bobby Pins without even a hint as to where it’s hidden.
Get The Look With Goody
After setting your hair into relaxed waves with Goody’s Large Self Holding Rollers, pull the hair into a loose side bun. Twist the Spin Pin through the bun to secure in place leaving an invisible hold. For longer hair use two Spin Pins from adjacent sides of the bun.
Top Tip: Don’t worry if a few strands of hair fall loose….it’s all about the undone bun.

“Hippie hair” has hit Hollywood, with feather hair extensions stealing the limelight. Seen on celebrity trend setters such as Hilary Duff, Selina Gomez & Jennifer Love Heweitt, feathers have gained a fashion following like no other. Steven Tyler, rocker turned reality TV judge, has also been seen sporting a feather in his hair, proving that even men are coveting this trend.
With festival season upon us, this look is sure to be a big hit. Perfect for adding a touch of fun to loose flowing locks, the extensions simply clip in to transform your look in seconds. This might all seem like something that was born from the fashion world but the feathers used in the extensions come from an unlikely source: fly-fishing shops. Due to the high demand from fashionistas, fly-fishing equipment companies in the US are having trouble keeping them in stock.
Watch out for this trend hitting the UK soon but remember: When it comes to colorful extensions, less is more. A bright pop of color hiding behind one ear is recommended over a full head of feather extensions.

More than 1200 hairdressers from 20 countries descending on the trendy Old Billingsgate venue on the bank of the River Thames for the Aveda Master Jam 2011. This amazing annual event, brings together Aveda’s masters in hairdressing and makeup artists, from across the world, for a very cool and inspiring “jam session”.
With breathstopping dance routines from the amazing group Diversity, before the Fashion Forward show began, everyone was hyped up to see the next breathtaking hair trends for 2012.
The show’s theme was Fashion Forward, brought to life in five vignettes that embodied Aveda’s environmental mission. The North American creative team included the fantastic Allen Ruiz, who chose Goody clips to demonstrate his amazing vision for the future. These clips looked AMAZING amongst the sneak preview of six new Pure Tones set to launch next year – emerald green fused with lime green, ink blue rubbed shoulders with canary yellow and magenta tussled with scarlet.
Allen Ruiz, Aveda North America Style Director:
“The look that we created for Aveda Master Jam is about large shapes and vivid colors. Hair extensions with the six new Aveda Pure Tones to be launched in 2012 have produced a sense of softness and fluidity for the look. We then created an interesting contrast by constructing a metallic mohawk with Goody clips running in the middle portion of the head.”
