Who said that the feathered hair styles are not trendy anymore? That’s not true! Look here and make sure they can still look stylish!
The very first and the most important thing is: a feather cut is when your hair is pulled straight up and cut in a V-shape in order to look like the feathers of the bird. It’s simple as that.
The feathered hair styles were extremely popular during the 1970s and the 1980s. However, unlike some other classic cuts from the 1980s (like mullets), feathered cuts are still here — and it doesn’t seem like they are going to go out of trends! Well, of course, feathered cuts are not the same now as they were 30 years ago. They are modern, they are stylish, they are really fashionable and elegant — so if you wanna try a feathered haircut, well, you shouldn’t worry about whether it’s trendy or not.
One of the main reasons why we all like feather cuts is that they suit both long, short and medium hair — so if you wanna make a feminine haircut, you can make it, and the length of your hair doesn’t matter at all. The only difficulty you may have is… yes, you know what we’re talking about. It’s the difficulty with choosing the best among all these hairstyles.
But that’s exactly why we are here — to help you make the right choice. Here we’ve found 21 great hairstyles which we are sure you’ll find interesting. Are you ready?
Best Feathered Hair Styles From the 70s and 80s
Yes, we’ve just said that the feathered hairstyles can be modern and trendy. However, there are lots of people who are looking for that 1970s and 1980s flair even nowadays — and their desires make sense, because hairstyles were extremely fashionable in those days. So, let’s start our journey through the world of feathered haircuts with the classic ones!
The very first thing we’d like to talk about here is a classic Farrah Fawcett hairstyle. She was the icon of a pin-up culture in the 1970s, she was that woman in the red swimsuit, she was one of the biggest sex symbols of the 70s, and her hairstyle was a perfect example of the 1970s feathered hair. She didn’t follow the trends, she created the trend — and this classic, voluminous, shaggy blonde hairstyle will certainly show you why she was the icon.
The second example here is another full-bodied haircut with layers and curls. It’s one of those dominant women’s hairstyles during the 1970s, so it’s one of the best choices for those who are looking for the cuts that were popular at that time.
As for the 1980s hairstyles, well, the things were a little bit different during those years. The volume became extremely important, the bangs moved higher, messy feathered haircuts became very popular — well, it was a good time. The last photo here isn’t from the 80s, it’s from the 2010s — but this hairstyle was definitely inspired by the early 80s style. Messy, feathered, long haircut is a win-win choice for everyone, that’s what we think.
Interesting Short Feathered Hairstyles
As we’ve mentioned at the very beginning, the feathered hairstyles suit short hair well, too. Here you’ll see three cuts that will prove these words.
The first one is a short layered haircut with full bangs and feathered layers. It’s a shaggy hairstyle, and it looks a little messy — but as every cut here, it’s really feminine and elegant. Look at the first photo and you’ll see what we mean when we say it!
When we are talking about the short hairstyles, it would be an inexcusable mistake to forget about the pixies! They always work well when it comes to short length hair, and our second example isn’t an exception. It’s a feathered pixie with bangs, and we are sure that it’s perfect for every woman with short hair. We are also sure that you should try this haircut!
What about bangs? If you are looking for a short cut with feathered layers, you are in the right place — just take a look at the third photo! The asymmetrical bangs can make any hairstyle more trendy and stylish, and here is the proof.
Cool Ideas Of Feather Haircut For Long Hair
Are you ready for something textured? Yes, we have textured haircuts here, too! Like the very first one — it’s a long, feathered and textured hairstyle that would work great for long hair. The bangs and the layers do wonders, just as usual.
The second photo? Yeah, it’s great, too. If you are blessed with long, thick hair, our congratulations: you can now try a cool hairstyle by Gabrielle Union — these perfect layers make the whole look very soft and really fantastic! Black hair would be the best choice, but if you have blonde hair, it’s not a problem, of course. If you wanna add some hair feathers, they would work well with this cut.
The last hairstyle was definitely inspired by the 1970s-1980s haircuts, but it’s completely different. It’s really stylish and it looks modern — this shaggy cut and the perfect dark blonde color do their job great (as always). We are sure that the highlights would work well here, too, but it depends on you only.
What About Some Beautiful Feathered Haircuts For Medium Length Hair?
Medium hair is perfect — not too long, not too short, easy to wash and to maintain (unlike long hair), easy to choose a hairstyle (because there are hundreds of them, unlike for short hair). If you are looking for a medium haircut, why not to try feathered cuts?
We’ll begin with another classic feather cut here. It’s a blonde cut with dark roots, and it’s just perfect for curly shoulder-length hair! A little bit shaggy, a little bit messy, very feminine and very sexy — we are sure you can’t ignore this cut.
The second and the third hairstyles are quite similar — they are messy, feathered, layered and really beautiful. The only difference is that the last feather cutting hairstyle here is more edgy and spike, while the second one looks softer.
Looking For Great Feathering Hair Styles With Bangs?
Let’s begin with a cool short feathered cut here. Side-parted hairstyle with feathered bangs and the waves — we recommend you to take a look at the first photo, because this hairstyle is definitely worth your attention.
The second haircut is quite interesting, too. It’s a feathered bob with bangs — and we all know that bobs look great in the majority of situations, right? This one isn’t an exception. It’s a very beautiful hairstyle that was certainly influenced by the classic feathered cuts.
As for the last hairstyle, well, it’s another feathered cut. This long layer haircut with sectioned bangs is just awesome — take a look at the last photo and you’ll see it with your own eyes.
