Farrah Fawcett
> Period of influence: 1970’s

Farrah Fawcett may have started the feathered-hair revolution. If there is one thing people remember about the “Charlie’s Angels” actress, it’s her hair. The classy cool-looking layers were what every woman wanted. Decades later, there are still dozens of Farrah Fawcett hair tutorial videos on YouTube.

Dorothy Hamill
> Period of influence: 1970’s

When Dorothy Hamill won Gold in the 1976 Winter Olympics and the World Championships the same year in figure skating, everybody wanted to have short and bouncy hair like hers. The wedge haircut became an instant fad. In her autobiography, Hamill said she liked the simplicity of short hair — “wash ‘n’ wear” style. She still wears her hair the same way.

Ariana Grande
> Period of influence: Since 2016

Ariana Grande’s signature look is her ponytail. The singer is credited with a spike in demand for hair extensions in Australia. But beauty can be painful. Grande has admitted on Twitter that her high and very tight ponytails are a source of constant pain due to the amount of extensions piled up.

Josephine Baker
> Period of influence: 1920’s

Josephine Baker was the face of the art deco movement in the 1920s. The American expat in Paris was among the most famous and respected entertainers in Europe. Her fashion choices were as famous as her dancing — large gold baubles, pencil-thin eyebrows, slicked-back hair, flamboyant feather, and bold makeup.

Lady Gaga
> Period of influence: 2010’s

Raw meat as a dress, disco ball head accessory, corseted lace dress and a gold mask, red latex dress and glitter eye decals (when meeting Queen Elizabeth), gravity-defying shoes…these are just a few of Lady Gaga’s daring outfits through the years. It’s hard not to wonder what the self-proclaimed Mother Monster will wear on her next night out.
