Description:
A photo of Farrah Fawcett, actress, showing off her iconic 1970's hairstyle. Everyone tried to copy her hair - no one could. And why? Well, years later the truth came out - this wasn't all Farrah's hair. Her hairdresser used extensions. Although Farrah had thick, curly hair even she needed some help.

Looking for a cool holiday hairstyle? In the 1970's just about every woman wanted Farrah Fawcett's hair. Who knew that in addition to her own thick curly hair, she had extensions! So much effort and tears trying to replicate it on our own. Sigh.

Yeah, my nanna wore extensions way back in the 50's & 60's.
Sure they've been around a lot longer though 😁

I didn’t know that they had extensions available back then. All they sold were the whole head fake wigs to the public . 😃

Anna Kakol Oh yeah. Extensions, "falls" (which went from the front of your head to the back so since I had darker bangs and blonde streaked hair, when I put on a fall Iooked like a real brunette), all sorts of hair additions! :)

I had a fall, also. One night I was in a bar in College and the guy next to me grabbed it and pulled it straight off my head.
Not only did it hurt my head, the guy across the table from me was a VietNam Vet with PTSD and he freaked out so badly, he had to be taken home- felt sorry for him and so mad at the guy who did the deed. He was a real cad!

I was a teenager and I had her hairstyle. I spent hours with the curling iron trying to get that look.

Not true. She didn't need them. Her hair looked just like that in college in Texas.

Let me quote one fellow student back in her college years in Texas. "She was so beautiful every one us us guys thought the air smelled sweeter when she walked by and we didn't say a word, just watched hoping she'd smile." No extensions. She was all real.

I had a human hair fall bought at my beauty salon and dyed to match my hair. It attached at the top of my head with a comb and then I combed my top hair over to blend in. That fall was below shoulder length, and from my platinum blonde era.

I believe that may have been in your swinging divorcee days before we met - at The Shack
Oakville, Ct- not Oakdale!

Willam Moran you are mistaken. I never went to the place you suggest and the rest of your comment shows you do not know me well at all.

It was either her hair or the “Hammel” cut. I was in beauty school then.
