Hairstyles from the icons
1. Audrey Hepburn’s Updo
Audrey totally owned this high-maintenance updo paired with that equally iconic baby bangs. It’s never gonna get old. And while it’s not an everyday hairstyle you would sport just about anywhere, this look would totally steal the spotlight at fancy events.
2. Marilyn Monroe’s Glamour Curls
Marilyn has become synonymous to this platinum blonde blow-dry. We couldn’t even imagine how she’d look with a different style. Her iconic hairdo represents all things sexy, so if you want a bombshell vibe, take this hairstyle as your inspiration. Tone it down a little bit by going easy on the teasing and curling.
3. Anna Wintour’s Blunt Bob
Anna is fierce and so is that bob. Nothing spells boss better than a power hairstyle like hers. So if you’re out to show the world you mean business, getting a sleek bob is a good place to start. Oh, and don’t forget the blunt bangs!
4. Jennifer Aniston’s “The Rachel”
Ah, the Rachel haircut — the iconic cut that debuted on the 90s television show Friends. The fact that it’s called that already proves how gloriously celebrated this choppy cut is. The style was as much of a hit as the show, and everyone ran to the salon to get the same layered locks with matching blond highlights. To keep from looking like you teleported from Central Perk circa 1995, skip the highlights, the barrett, and the teasing.
5. Victoria Beckham’s “Pob”
It was sleek, it was sexy, and it was definitely posh! Posh Spice’s bob, which everyone started calling “Pob”as was one of the most copied hairstyles. This asymmetrical cut is classic yet modern, and flatters round- or square-shaped face best.
