Farrah Fawcett as Jill Munroe

Feathered hair was a hairstyle popular in the 1970s and the early 1980s with men and women. The hair was grown long on both sides (normally covering the ears, although it could be shoulder length), unlayered (although some men with curly hair did have it layered), with either a side or a centre parting. The hair would be brushed back at the sides, giving an appearance similar to the feathers of a bird.

The haircut gained phenomenal popularity in the early 1970s. Many celebrities wore this style at some time or another including Tim Brooke Taylor of The Goodies and Eric Idle (who wore it for a short time between about 1969 and 1971), Farrah Fawcett, and Don Johnson. Today, feathered hair is cut so as to wave gently, and is generally mid-length. Notable wearers include Hayden Panettiere, Heather Locklear and Naomi Watts.
