Long hair : wavy '70s or curly '80s?

  • v/s"
Wavy or curly? Chose your decade!

It's the battle of the decades! Are you a '70s vintage fan or are you all about the '80s Stranger Things style? Who wins this retro Match the Look battle?

So Wavy 70s

The style: Model Jess PW rocked this 70s iconic style at New York Fashion Week's DVF show. Think Charlie's Angels meets one of those detective shows...

The hairstyle: Long, loose and wavy with that classic middle parting. It's a safe 70s thing. The best news is that L'Oréal Professionnel salon treatments have come along light years in the last 40 years so you can get that blonde look with the . The first permanent hair colour without ammonia or odour, it's all about cool, natural looking blonde without the unnecessary hair cruelty!

What the editors say: Long locks, a retro vibe and attitude. It rocks. A bit hippy, a bit sexpot, we love it! And those tinted glasses really do it for us.

80s Curly

The style: The 90s are out and the Netflix generation is all about the 80s. This time around hair isn't quite as big and natural looking is always key – so get the 80s big curl right!

The hairstyle: Case in point, model Georgia Fowler in Sydney with the loveliest, bounciest curls! A touch of old-school Sigourney Weaver, with a new gen natural softness. Check into your L'Oréal Professionnel salon to talk about Hollywood Waves, Siren Waves or Beach Waves to pick the right volume for you?

What the editors say: We love those curls. Volume and naturally shiny, healthy hair – what's not to love?

So who wins it? The vintage 70s chicks or the 80s babes?
