Iconic Hairstyles That Stood The Test Of Time
Who can forget Marilyn Monroe's sexy curled crop? Or Jerry Hall's luscious mermaid locks? We look back at the signature styles of yesteryear that are still making waves today...
1. Joan Crawford's Permed Crop
The American actress and dancer was one of the highest paid female actresses of the 30s. Wealth during the Depression era, meant that Crawford always looked chic and well put together. The 'Mildred Pierce' star tended to keep her hair shoulder length or shorter. Today, musicians like Katy Perry continue to emulate this gorgeous lady of yesteryear.
2. Patti Smith's Grunge Cut
Who better to emulate the queen of grunge Patti Smith's shaggy haircut? Today's indie pin-up Alexa Chung. She has the same long fringe, dirty brown shade and undone waves as the US singer and totally makes it work.
3. Brigitte Bardot's Blonde Bombshell
Screen siren Brigitte Bardot's signature style was her full blonde locks which were backcombed to create serious volume. The sex symbol's tresses have been copied time and time again throughout the years but Pixie Lott has to be one of her biggest golden blonde fans.
4. Twiggy's 60s Crop
Twiggy's mod bob was all the rage back in the '60s when beauty centred around lashes, eyeliner and a bold haircut. Actress Michelle Williams is just one of today's stars taking the supermodel's style on board rocking the iconic crop on the red carpet. Gorgeous!
5. Jerry Hall's Mermaid Waves
It's only natural Jerry Hall's ethereal waves are inspiring supermodel daughter Georgia May Jagger's look. The glamorous mum was famous for her lengthy honey hair back in the 70s and she has no doubt passed down pearls of beauty wisdom to her kids which is why the two have stunning matchy matchy tresses today.
6. Marilyn Monroe's Siren Curls
The 50s was THE decade for vintage glamour thanks to pin-ups like Marilyn Monroe so it's no wonder stars today are still taking styling tips from the queen of Hollywood opulence. Taylor Swift tried out the actress' trademark tonged 'do on the red carpet recently and added a slick of red lipstick for good measure. We can't imagine this classic look ever going out of fashion.
7. Meg Ryan's Choppy Bob
Everyone wanted Meg Ryan's shaggy bob at one time or another and the sexy natural-looking cut has transcended time. Popstress Rita Ora tried out Meg's 90s style by chopping in messy layers and scrunch drying her dirty blonde locks. A gorgeous look for those who haven't got the time to blow dry their locks every day!
8. Bettie Page's Blunt Fringe
Kitsch glamour was big in the 50s and pin-up model Bettie Page was one of the first to debut the pixie-inspired fringe. Keeping it short and straight, the now goth-associated style pops up on stars from Katy Perry to Lily Allen. This is one cute trend that isn't going anywhere...
