8 Naturals Rocking the Heck Out of the Fluffy 70s Style Blowout Trend

Avatar • Aug 3, 2015

Many naturals use blowouts as a way to check their length progress, but for those who adore big hair, it can be disappointing to lose volume. A beautiful compromise is the 70s trend of feathery big blowouts rocked by iconic stars like Farrah Fawcett and Diana Ross. Instead of the flat-ironed bone-straight look, the fluffy blowout amplifies the volume in the hair with big curls that can be set with old school magnetic rollers or big-sized Curlformers.

Natural celebs like Solange and Lianne La Havas rock the trend effortlessly.

So I asked, and you guys voted this style as your fave look! (on my page and on @curlbox) For my new followers and those who missed it, here’s how I got this look: 1. Start on freshly washed hair. 2. In sections, add #cantu shea butter leave in conditioner (very little, about nickel size amount for whole head, otherwise hair will feel weighed down. I use it to manage detangling) and #cremeofnature argon oil heat protectant. 3. Detangle hair with fingers or comb depending on hair texture and preference. (I use my fingers) 4. Use a blow dryer on medium heat to dry hair. I pull each piece with my fingers to stretch down as I run the dryer down my hair. Once dried, I use a denman brush to comb out my hair. 5. After hair is dried, section again in small pieces and use flat iron on a medium heat (I used 325) to add curls to hair. Pass through just once if you can to avoid damage. Once finished, use flat iron to straighten edges, then flip head upside down for volume and use #tresseme hairspray to hold curls. A pick can also be used to add more volume and for touch ups through out the day. Heat damage can occur so try at your own discretion. Hope this helps loves 😘

This is how I wear my hair 80% of the time. In its natural my hair looks thin but with a fluffy blowout, it looks big and fluffy.

I love big hair. I’m all about my 4 chunky braids every night. I let them loose in the morning, shake my head and go!

I’ve been sporting this type of blowout for years now, I love it! One added bonus is that I find the fluffy blowout to be really slimming, especially compared to the bone-straight alternative.

First time I wore this look (about a year after I first went natural) I remember thinking: “WHYYYY did I relax my hair for so long?? I had NO IDEA my straightened hair could be this big and fluffy and sexy! How come nobody TOLD ME??” lol…not that I needed any other reason not to relax again, but that hairstyle really sealed the deal for me. Obviously it wasn’t a style I wore regularly, and I haven’t worn it in many years, but man…talk about falling in love with your hair…! 🙂

I like the hairstyles but my grandma said that most of the girls hair look “nappy” but I think these woman look beautiful. I want hair like this. Right now I’m transitioning my hair and I can’t wait to be natural. #blackgirlsrock #blackisbeautiful

My grandma thinks this hair is “nappy” but I think it looks great and amazing. And what is really “nappy?” I want to do this to my hair.m

I will definitely try this. I LOVE big hair, especially as someone who doesn’t naturally have a lot of density. I just need to get me a set of large perm rods and I’m good to go. I wonder what product would work best for setting the hair on the rod after the blowdrying.
