@70sRose has gained over half a million followers on TikTok thanks to a Princess Diana-inspired haircut. Her beautiful face and enthusiasm for disco are enough of a reason to give her a follow! If you love Olivia Newton-John and ABBA, you’re in for a treat. Inspired by 70s and 80s glam, her videos attract millions of views and double taps. Learn more about her here.
With Diana’s hairstyle currently trending, we asked Beverly Hills-based celebrity hairstylist Nick Chavez what he thought of the viral video and the idea of Princess Diana’s hair making a comeback. Some of Nick’s most iconic clients include Joan Collins, Paris Jackson, Nicole Richie, and Sharon Stone. He’s also a superstar on QVC promoting his own beauty line, translation: NICK KNOWS HAIR.
Kinsey Schofield: What is your reaction to @70sRose’s Princess Diana-inspired haircut?
Nick Chavez: I think she looks great, I think she looks beautiful. She is a beautiful girl! She did a great job. It looks like a professional cut and style.
KS: Is this haircut something you would advise someone to do themselves or would you suggest a professional do this cut for them?
NC: Obviously, I would suggest a professional do this cut, and let me tell you why – it could very well end up looking like a bowl cut. So, you’re going to want to hire someone that understands the cut, your hair type, and what type of maintenance you’re comfortable with on a daily basis. We can take that into account and give you a similar cut that suits your time constraints.
KS: Do you think that she will regret this cut? Or others that follow suit? Not because it’s not brilliant, it is certainly brilliant, but does it grow out beautifully or…?
NC: Yes, she looks great. This particular haircut requires a specific texture and prep-time so I would say, be prepared. Again, consult a professional, and if you don’t expect to maintain it, know that there will likely have to be another haircut to shape your hair how you plan to grow it out.
KS: You basically just answered this question but is it easy to maintain?
NC: I think if you have thinner hair, absolutely. Look at how her hair bounces and the lift, it’s just stunning. She has very light hair, easy to manage.
KS: Is this hairstyle officially making a comeback thanks to Princess Diana?
NC: Yes and no. I would say there are different variations of this haircut making a comeback but not to the extent of Di’s famous 80s coiffure.
KS: What tools would you use to style this hairstyle?
NC: Definitely a round brush, velcro rollers, and a blow dryer. Product-wise, I would consider Plumper N Thicker Ultra Thickening Shampoo, Plumper N Thicker Ultra Thickening Conditioner, Plump ‘n Thick Thickening Hairspray, or Diva® Legendary Finishing Texture Spray. Gentle on your hair but my hairspray would survive the apocalypse.
KS: Love it! I use Advanced Volume Shampoo and Conditioner and it makes my hair so healthy! Not a paid endorsement! Which one of Princess Diana’s hairstyles is your favorite?
NC: Oh, I love looking at her in the black turtleneck, on the cover of her book, Diana: Her True Story. She had evolved from a young girl to a sophisticated woman. It really reflected her growth and development. She was a force.
