10 Most Iconic Hairstyles That Rocked The World

By Len

Narrowing down the most iconic hairstyles of all time is like choosing the best diamonds in a bag full of it. All of them are great in their own right, but there are some that are just simply shining brighter than the rest.

What does it take to be a hairstyle icon? We’re not going to sugar coat this one for you. Here it is. Are you ready? You have to be magnanimously famous.

Wait, that’s only the first factor. Being a true hairstyle icon is not just about having a killer crop (not all of them are wearable); it’s more about the right kind of attitude. That is how you make a monumental worldwide impact.

Here are the iconic hairstyles that made numerous women scramble their way to the parlor:

Tina Turner

Even the King of the Jungle will give two paws up for this wild mane! We’re talking about serious frizz, people! The hairstyle is very identifiable and epitomized her persona perfectly. You gotta hand it to the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll. No one can give this hairstyle justice better than her.

Princess Diana

Princess Diana's Hairstyle

The perfectly blow dried wind-swept coif of the late Shy Di was the most copied hairstyle during the early 80’s. We think that the hairstyle made her a bit older than she actually was, but, it was the era of big hair and Aqua Net so she gets a pass.

Jackie Kennedy Onassis

The former FLOTUS was not only a hair icon; she was a style icon as well. Some women have all the luck! But, wait! According to her former hairdresser, Edgar Montalvo, Jackie O had “wiry hair”. Lo and behold, she’s human just like us! Her bouffant bob has remained a cool classic and will be for years – even centuries – to come.

Brigitte Bardot

The 60’s French actress definitely mastered the bedhead look! Her messy, long wavy locks has been duplicated over the years, but never bettered.

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe's sexy blonde bob hairstyle

The actress proved that blondes have more fun…and work too! She dyed her natural deep brown hair (and had it styled in a curly bob) because the gentlemen at the modeling agency preferred blondes. And that’s how a sex symbol was born.

Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn's  super short crop hairstyle

The pixie is to Audrey Hepburn, as the Eiffel Tower is to France. The super short crop she sported on Roman Holiday brought out her irresistible boyish charm.

Jennifer Aniston

The haircut that Jennifer referred to as “ugly” became a cult classic ever since it appeared on Friends back in 1994. The shoulder length, heavily layered haircut was created by her then hairstylist, Chris McMillan. He was reportedly “stoned” while doing it.

Demi Moore

Demi Moore's androgynous short haircut with fringe bangs

No actress in Hollywood has got more hairstyle fortitude than Demi Moore. She’s done it all – from super long hairstyle to skinhead! The most adored of which was her androgynous short haircut with fringe bangs in Ghost. That haircut deserves an Oscar!

Farah Fawcett

Farrah Fawcett's blonde locks hair from Charlies Angels

Major hair flipping right here! Her massive thick “Charlie’s Angels” locks’ so popular, a song was created as homage to it! That’s hair power for ‘ya!

Bo Derek

Bo Derek's gorgeous blonde braided hair cornrows

It’s only fitting to end a Top Ten with a woman considered as a 10! Cornrows have never been this sexy! Her gorgeous blonde hair was braided for 10 grueling hours! The effort was all worth it, we say.
