Looking for some hair-style inspiration? I’ve collected some of the most iconic hairstyles here from the 1920s to the 1970s, which one do you fancy trying?

Veronica Lake: The Peekaboo Fringe

1940s movie star Veronica Lake was famous for her long finger curled blonde locks and peekaboo fringe.

Jessica Rabbit’s hair was famously styled to be a sexy combination of Veronica Lake and Rita Hayworth’s hair styles.


Veronica Lake and a Polar Bear, 1940s

Louise Brooks: The Flapper Bob

20s movie star and inspiration to flappers everywhere Louise Brooks started a trend amongst bright young things with her sharply cut dark bob.


Marilyn Monroe: The Bombshell Cut

Marilyn‘s platinum blonde waves have been copied in movies and on the red carpet ever since, but noone wore them quite as well as she did.


Brigitte Bardot: Mussed Up Blonde

Perhaps the ultimate French bombshell, Bardot‘s touselled blonde locks combined with smudgy black eyeliner are one of the most famous sex symbol looks of the 50s and 60s.


Rita Hayworth: Glamorous Auburn Waves

Famed for her gorgeous trademark red hair, auburn wasn’t actually Rita Hayworth‘s natural hair colour. Born Rita Cansino she had dark brown hair before her Hollywood makeover.


Farrah Fawcett: The Farrah Flick

The ‘Farrah flick’ took the 1970s by storm when she appeared in hit TV show Charlies Angels. Every girl wanted a thick touselled mane just like hers, and hairspray sales rocketed!


Elizabeth Taylor: Dark 50s Waves

Taylor’s dark waved hair was the epitome of 1950s style. Her dark, nearly black hair and brows framed those violet eyes perfectly! I also suspect that Liz Taylor is the hair inspiration for Dita Von Teese.
