Seventies Hair Is Huge (Literally!) at the White House Correspondents Dinner

White House Correspondents' Dinner HairDimitrios Kambouris/Getty (3)

The jokes were biting, the gowns were gorgeous and the hair was big (and feathered) at the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday night.

Beth Behrs, Sofia Vergara and Claire Danes all were rocking their version of the Farrah Fawcett — between Behrs’s wispy, sideswept bangs, Vergara’s cascading curls and Danes’s outwardly swept, feathered and curled front tendrils, the three stars could have recreated Fawcett’s iconic poster.

And though the hair was retro, the gowns were all modern (Behrs wore Donna Karan Atelier, Vergara was in Herve L Leroux and Danes wore Prada). And all three ladies were some of the most stunning at the party (and they had some major competition!)

Tell us: What do you think of these stars’ fine feathered hair?

This is not a retro look. These ladies are wearing a classic long layered look with a modern touch and they all look great.

Whoever wrote this doesnt know what they were talking about, None of the above styles looks like anything from the 70s- I know because I was a hairstylist then and all I see is what some kid turned writer born in the 80s “thought” it was like.
