Who isn’t obsessed with Farrah Fawcett‘s famously flowing mane? Exactly. Even my mom penned a story about how the ’70s icon inspired her.
While the “Charlie’s Angel” star made bouncy feathered locks in style, she wasn’t the only star to participate in the trend. In fact, just about every gorgeous celebrity (male and female included) wanted Farrah Fawcett hair.

Today, feathered hair is still popular in a modern form. There are a lot of reasons why the look hasn’t faded: it makes hair look thicker, healthier and shinier. (It’s also a lot of fun to flip around!) Contemporary stars, however, wear a more subtle adaptation of the hairstyle by enhancing a bouncy blowout with Fawcett’s signature wings or adding volume with a center part.

Take a peek at the photos in our gallery below of more stars in the 1970s with the original feathered hairstyle and keep clicking through to see how stars today wear it. Let us know what you think about the style. Would you try feathered hair today?
