Dorothy Hamill hairstyle was very popular during the 1970s. This hairstyle can be created with a wedge haircut and it was worn by Dorothy Hamill during the Olympics in 1976. The hair will look like a short bob at the back of the head which will curve inward and back by complementing a rounded face. The style usually works well with all type of hair, but those who have curly and thick hair must not try it out.
Begin the styling by collecting most of the hair at the top of your head. Start cutting the hair bangs as per your desire which must drop straight down. Cut the perimeter hair which is at the back of your neck that will vary depending on the person. It can range from above your shoulders to near the ears. Leave the rest of your hair and cut it all to your desired length. Part the cut hair down the center to create a strong weight line across the top of your head. Next comb the hair out keeping a 90 degree angle with the weight line and parallel to the ground to create a very distinctive look. Cut the hair at a descending angle from tip of the weight line to create a diagonal line with the hair. Do the angled cut all the way around your head and then leave all of the hair which is longer than the rest of the hair.
