Hairstyles that defined an era
Louise Brooks’ A-line bob
So long, long strands! Prior to the 1920s, lengthy hairstyles were the standard, but Louise Brooks's graphic bob with clean bangs changed that, inspiring women everywhere to make the cut.
Vivien Leigh's Scarlett half-updo
While a love story with Clark Gable was a pipe dream for most, women in the late '30s and early '40s channeled their inner Vivien Leigh with rolled half-updos reminiscent of the star's iconic Scarlett O'Hara hairstyle.
Rita Hayworth's glamorous waves
Usually when "Old Hollywood glamour" is used as style inspiration, the coiff of choice is similar to the Rita Hayworth's defined loose curls. The star's cascading texture made waves in the beauty world throughout the '40s and '50s, and has recently experienced a revival with the celebrities of today.
Audrey Hepburn's short bangs
Hairstyles in the 1950s and 1960s veered between the flip, structured curls, the beehive, and everything in between. The one constant element? The short, above-the-brow fringe famously worn by Audrey Hepburn.
Twiggy's clean pixie
Twiggy's gamine crop was a game-changer for the early '60s. Women chopped their lengthy strands to mirror the model's ultra-short pixie, which became even more coveted with the rise of mod-inspired trends.
Priscilla Presley's bouffant
Women in the late '60s and early '70s couldn't take their eyes off of Elvis's showstopping dance moves, or Priscilla's voluminous coif.
Cher's ultra-straight strands
If we could turn back time, we'd certainly be rocking Cher's '70s-era pin-straight blowout.
Farrah Fawcett's tousled flip
Next to pet rocks and lava lamps, Farrah Fawcett's pin-up poster was a staple in the rooms of men and boys in the late '70s, but women of the time were also inspired, tacking up her feathered waves in salons for their hairstylists to recreate.
Sarah Jessica Parker's mega curls
When it came to hair in the '80s, bigger was always better! Long before Sarah Jessica Parker's role as the chic Carrie Bradshaw, the star went for volumized ringlets with a mini-poof.
It's the haircut that launched a thousand snips! In the '90s, Jennifer Aniston's iconic "Rachel" cut almost became more popular than the multi-season Friends series that showcased the look. Aniston's hairstylist Chris McMillan, who still styles her covetable strands today, looked to Ann-Margaret for inspiration when creating the style.
