Not only a hair icon but a style icon too, Audrey Hepburn’s famous up-do from Breakfast at Tiffany’s is still being recreated more than 50 years on.  Her brunette locks with an edgy fringe are still iconic today. 

2. Amy Winehouse

For her short time on this earth, Amy Winehouse was distinguished by two things: her incredible soulful voice and her beehive hair.  Amu succeeded in bringing the 60’s hairstyle back, and was rarely seen without the backcombed, iconic look.

3. Marilyn Monroe

Another glamorous 50’s pin-up girl, Marilyn Monroe’s curly blonde locks are desired by many.  Her iconic retro Hollywood curls continue to inspire today’s celebrity looks spotted on the red carpet, and fashion fans worldwide trying to achieve the ultimate glam hairstyle. 

4. Farrah Fawcett

Stunning model and star of Charlie’s Angels Farrah Fawcett started a trend that swept the world in the 1970’s.  Her mid length feathered mane was so iconic the style is now named “The Farrah” and inspired many blond icons to carry on her legacy. 

5. Rihanna

Superstar Rihanna is well known for changing her hair more often than most people change their socks.  She has been photographed with a spectrum of colours, from fiery red to platinum blonde, and a vast range of edgy cuts blending long and short styles.

6. Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge shot to fame a few years ago after her engagement to Prince William was announced.  Ever since she’s never been spotted looking anything but stunning, thanks to a pristine mane of immaculate long, brunette tresses.  Her hair is now Kate’s statement and a globally iconic style, as British women and others around the world desperately try to recreate the Royal, flawless waves.       

7. Agyness Deyn

British model Agyness Deyn became a hair icon by putting the blonde pixie crop in the limelight.  Her punk style is radiated by her edgy hairstyle that has seen other colours, but the bright blonde shade is Agyness’ symbol. 

8. Florence Welch

As the lead singer of Florence and the Machine, red head Florence Welch is a hair icon for gingers everywhere.  There are few celebrities with naturally red hair, and even fewer who flaunt such a vibrant colour as well as Florence.  Her effortless waves look completely natural, making Florence the Queen of boho chic style.     

9. Gwen Stefani

Before Lady Gaga, it was Gwen Stefani’s outrageous hairstyles that caught the attention of the media. The platinum blonde icon switches easily between straight and sleek, overstated glamour and quirky up-dos. 

10. Sarah Jessica Parker

This actress is one of few celebrities who aren’t afraid to show their hair in its natural state.  Wild and curly, the au naturale hairstyle was first seen on our screens on Carrie Bradshaw in Sex And the City, and ever since the fashionista has inspired stylists with her blend of sleek and straight, bouncy wavy styles and flawless ponytails and buns.
