The Farrah Fawcett
Start with a long-layered haircut that is texturized throughout and angled sharply from your cheekbone to the bottom. Apply a holding mouse or hair gel to your wet hair, making sure to cover your hair from the root area to the ends. You will need it at the root area to help it to lift off the scalp when you blow it dry and you will need it on the ends when you hold the flip. Blow your hair dry, upside down if you need fullness.
Next, use a flat-iron to smooth and cause the hair to flip without curling.
To do this clamp your flat iron onto the hair, high on the hair shaft. Then draw the iron down the hair (this smoothes it) until you are about four inches from the end. Then, turn the flat iron in an upward motion, creating a slight upward bend in the hair. This is your "flip."

Finish with a light flexible hair spray to help keep the shape.
