From Farrah Fawcett’s flicked out layers to Emma Watson’s crop and Kylie minogue’s bubble perm, the stars have had their fair share of iconic hairstyles – good and bad! See our favourites here…
She might have straight highlighted hair now she’s in her 40s but whenever we picture Julia Roberts it’s with those 80s corkscrew curls she was rocking in Pretty Woman. Big, bouncy and beautiful, there’s no better way to wear them!
Amy Winehouse was at the forefront of bringing retro hairstyles back into the limelight. Her signature style was the oversized beehive, sometimes accessorised with a flower or streak of blonde through her fringe but always with a healthy helping of winged eyeliner.
Find a style and stick with it and there’s a good chance your hair will become an iconic part of your look, just like Mary Portas and her short copper bob and fringe. A power cut for a power personality!
A soft fringe that’s sometimes parted in the centre and sometimes worn full paired with loose tousled waves is Alexa Chung’s staple hairstyle but we love it and we can’t imagine her wearing her hair any other way. It’s the perfect mid-length cut.
The ultimate rock chic supermodel, it was Kate Moss who made bedhead hair cool for for everyone to wear, even women over 40.
The centre parting and flicked out layers could only mean one thing – it’s Farrah Fawcett’s signature style that saw her through the 70s and beyond.
The late 90s had everyone asking for a layered ‘Rachel’ haircut, made famous by Jennifer Aniston’s role in Friends.

Cheryl Cole quickly became known for her long hair extensions and ‘big hair’ traits which landed her a deal with L’Oreal.
The era of punk rock, Cyndi Lauper embraced her wild side with a canary yellow and bright orange mullet that could be seen for miles.
As soon as she’d finished filming the last Harry Potter film, Emma Watson chopped off her hair into a pixie crop. A brave move that got people talking for days.
She’s a true icon in every sense of the word, and even Kate Middleton’s hair is famous thanks to her simple formula of a big bouncy blow-dry with waved ends.
Brigitte Bardot swung her way through the 60s brandishing a soft, sexy beehive that we’re still jealous of!
When Victoria Beckham went for the chop she introduced an entirely new haircut and the graduated bob was all of a sudden branded the ‘pob’ – that’s one powerful lady!
Was anyone else ‘lucky’ enough to copy Kylie’s hair back in the 80s? A spiral perm, this is how she looked back in the days of Kylie and Jason!
You can pick out her platinum blonde curls in a crowd making Marilyn Monroe’s ringlets a truly iconic classic.
The bigger the better seemed to be Tina Turner’s motto back in the 80s when she rocked this shaggy mane although top marks for the dip dyed ends – very on trend!
