Iconic hairstyles of all time
What is hot in hair this winter? What tousled trend is worth trying?
As we head into the cooler months, Fairlady magazines' beauty editor, Candice Lee Kannemeyer, offers some tips on this winter's top hair trends.
"This winter, the polished pony makes a return. Sleek and sophisticated, the pony is the perfect style when you're on the go with no time to spare. Loose, tousled waves are also big news – this trend embraces the ethos of working with your natural texture, not against it."
According to Kannemeyer, when it comes to hair colour, red is undoubtedly the colour of the moment. "From deep tones of burgundy to bold and bright copper, there's a shade to suit everyone."
Whether it's hair, nails or skincare, Kanneyemer says, Failady's annual Best of Beauty Awards are the ultimate rave for everybody's favourite beauty products. This esteemed competition highlights the very best beauty products out there, with categories such as skincare, hair, fragrance, body, men's, anti-ageing, hands and feet, colour, nail, sun, tools, best beauty blogger, best newcomer product and best iconic product. The competition is currently open for entries, with the closing date on 03 June 2012.
"I'm so privileged to try out the best new products on the market, but I also enjoy the part of my job that allows me to look back at the history of beauty trends," Kannemeyer said. "I've loved working on a piece for this latest issue that looks at past hot hair trends, and sheds some light on the iconic hairstyles that launched an army of copycats."
What made them so popular? Check out the gallery below.
THE HOLLY - made famous by Audrey Hepburn
Her sparkling high bun in Breakfast at Tiffany's is as stylish today as it was back in the '60s. In other words, it's a classic. The feminine French twist was piled high on top of her head with a short, choppy fringe. It epitomised the chic style of the era and was ahead of its time when it came to hair colouring - Hepburn also sported caramel streaks in her dark brown hair.
THE SEX BOMB - made famous by Marilyn Monroe
The ultimate sex symbol of the 20th century, the blonde bombshell went from mousy meisie to sex kitten the instant she bleached her hair. Her cutesy bob styled in tousled curls defined the hairstyles of the time, and stars like Gwen Stefani still pay homage to the actress with striking blonde locks.
THE 'FRO - made famous by Pam Grier
Renowned for her kick-ass movie roles in 'blaxploitation' movies of the '70s (the first US films to be aimed at primarily black, urban audiences), such as Coffy and Foxy Brown, Grier's beautiful Afro cemented her hairstyle as one of the most influential of the decade.
THE URCHIN - made famous by Mia Farrow Farrow's elfish cut by world-famous celebrity snipper Vidal Sassoon in 1968 helped shape her transformation in the public eye from Frank Sinatra’s other half into a fully fledged movie star. The style challenged preconceived ideas of femininity, such as long hair and curves - and Twiggy took the look on soon after - but it was Farrow who first wore it for her role in the film Rosemary's Baby.
THE FARRAH - made famous by none other than Farrah Fawcett
The '70s 'flick' found fame when Farrah sported her sun-kissed locks in this style, and the look enjoyed a comeback in the early noughties thanks to the remake of Charlie's Angels.
THE SHAG - made famous by Meg Ryan Who didn't want the shaggy crop of America's cutie pie in movies like French Kiss and Youâ??ve Got Mail? Meg proves that 'wash-and-go glam' can suit women of all ages.
THE POSH BOB - made famous by Victoria Beckham
Posh Spice-s razor-sharp bob launched a thousand WAG duplicates - and many others besides. Long in the front and short at the back, the style was soon so in demand it got its own nickname: 'the pob'.
THE RACHEL - made famous by Jennifer Aniston
Who could forget 'The Rachel'? Our favourite funny girl made the layered bob the must-have hairstyle of the '90s. Surprisingly (or perhaps not), Aniston now can't stand the style.
