Authentic photograph from 1979 of a young lady with a typical feathered hairstyle from that time period.

1979 Hair

Hair is shoulder length. Bangs are relatively short and textured with layers that allow the "feathered" effect. They are rolled under with a curling iron and then brushed to the side. The sides are curled toward the back and gently directed toward the back with a brush. Only light hold hairspray was used if at all as this was before the days of the 80's when shellac-like spray was used to create a monument that didn't move. These styles were made to give the look of movement. The strands were cut in a way that they could basically fall into place.

Sally Field shows us that at age 65 we can still wear a youthful hairstyle and look young.

Sally Field

The length is about 3 inches past shoulder length. Layers add the look of movement and help the strands to fall into place. The bangs are a bit feathered and split on the forehead into two sides with an off center part. The bottom edge is slightly curled giving it a soft and feminine appeal. Also the fullness is centered around the ends. She keeps her brunette hair color rather than going grey and is the shade that we remember her with from days gone by.
