Not all beauty trends from the 1970s were embarrassing—some have passed the test of time. These trends are great for so many different reasons. You can make them more dramatic or tone them down, be bold or subtle, and even turn them into every day looks. Each of these 70s beauty trends is worth trying out now!

Hair flowers


Even if you’re not going to Coachella with Kendall Jenner, you can still incorporate flowers into your hair to channel your inner 70s hippie girl. It has become popular to wear a flower crown (like the one above) as a bride, but you can always tone it down to wear to a concert or a fun summer, spring, or fall party using seasonal flowers.

Graphic eyeliner


Twiggy first started the graphic liner movement in her beginning modeling pictures. The picture here on the right shows a model from the 2015 Versace runway show proving that this look has come back alive. This dramatic cut-crease look is signature of the 70s era—why not experiment?

Middle part


The middle part is a trend that has sort of always been around. While the 70’s middle part was a bit more bold, it still holds lots of potential for varying up your hair. Add some messy waves for that put together bed-head look.

Pastel eyeshadow


Your mom isn’t the only one who experimented with pastel colors when it comes to makeup. Pastel colors are coming to runways and cosmetics aisles everywhere, so you have a plethora to choose from.

Full bangs


Full bangs were one of the biggest styles in the 70’s. People like Zooey Deschanel have always pulled them off, so why can’t you?
