Nine Hairstyles Celebrities Made Famous Through the Years

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

The Caesar. The Rachel. The Twiggy. Celebrities often set trends for hairstyles that weave their way into popular culture for a minute or two. Since Brigitte Bardot and Lucille Ball popularized poodle perms and beehives in the ’50s, society has looked to Hollywood for the next big thing in hair. Good or bad, they’ve dictated family photos and school portraits for decades and helped us all look back and say, “What was I thinking?”

On the other hand, some have stood the test of time and, with a few slight modernizations, still appear on red carpets and sidewalks alike. Which ones are hairdos and which ones are hair don’ts? You be the judge:

1. Bo Derek and her beaded cornrows from 1979’s 10

2. Farrah Fawcett’s long, feathered locks

3. Cher’s long, straight, center-parted hippie hair

4. Dorothy Hammill, who brought The Wedge to the masses

5. Jennifer Aniston, whose character on Friends was the envy of women everywhere

6. Meg Ryan and her cropped, tousled curls found their way into salons in the ’90s

7. Madonna’s teased and crimped-beyond-recognition mane circa “Like a Prayer.”

8. George Clooney’s straight forehead fringe, nicknamed The Caesar

9. Christina Aguilera’s Xtina phase that brought about stick-straight black hair with a blonde top layer

The stylists behind these celebrities’ do’s marked their place in history and pop culture forever by going out on a limb and trying something new. Imagine how it would feel to see one of your styles on TV or even in the aisle next to you at the store. What will be the next big look? One can only imagine.
