History Of Celebrity Hairstyles
Louise Brooks celebrity bob hairstyle 1920
Since the vintage hairstyles of the 1920’s which saw silent film stars with their locks cropped into the first bob haircuts, all the way to the fashionable, updated Pob’s of today; celebrity hairstyle’s greatly influence how we wear our hair.
Louise Brooks is widely regarded as the first woman to spot the bob haircut. The 1920’s silent screen beauty’s new-cropped hairstyle quickly became all the rage for women and to this day is one of the most popular hairstyles ever to be seen.
The bob as worn by Louise and many other women was cropped to above chin length and angled down to touch the cheeks. The short, blunt bangs were an advantage for hiding high foreheads and emphasizing facial features.
In the 1930's young women were often seen still sporting the ever-popular bob haircut. Pageboy bob haircuts with the ends rolled under became very trendy in the 1930’s. Almost all hairstyles worn by women during this decade involved some type of curling implemented into the look.
To hold their style all evening long, women used what was known as setting lotion, the modern equivalent of which would be mousse or gel.
Greta Garbo and Katherine Hepburn were two of the most popular female stars of that time. Women everywhere were captivated by their hairstyles and strove to emulate the way they wore their tresses.
Both of these beautiful women favored shoulder length hair falling in gentle waves. Often, the loose curls of those days were achieved through finger waves.
The 1940’s saw some women wearing sexy longer hairstyles such as that worn by legendary actresses like Veronica Lake. She is well remembered for the famous style where her blonde locks fell across her forehead, completely hiding one eye.
Many women of this decade also opted to become blondes, which was not always a good idea for their hair. The bleaches of that decade were very harsh, and consisted of 20-volume peroxide mixed with ammonia. Their hair was often left in a very poor condition.
A popular style for women who were heading out for the evening in the 1940's is still an elegant alternative for the women of today.
Create a part in your hair horizontally across the back of the head and about two inches above the ears.
Pull hair onto top of head and secure with a coated elastic band.
Begin twisting the hair.
Above the forehead, lift the hair and push the section forward to create a roll.
Lift the roll and gently push the tail of the twist under the roll.
Secure the hair in place by pinning.
Cover the pins with a hair ornament.
The remaining hair can be twisted into a braided knot on the nape of the neck if length permits. If hair is shorter, the bottom can be curled using the pin curl method.
The early 1950’s saw the ponytail as an easy way to wear your hair; this however graduated to the French pleat. By the end of the decade, many women were wearing their locks teased into intricate beehive styles
As always, women also wore their hair in the same styles as the popular celebrities of the decade. Hair curled into permanent wave styles such as those worn by Elizabeth Taylor were favored by many women.
One of the most famous female faces gracing the big screen in the 1950’s was that of Marilyn Monroe. Women everywhere strove to wear their hair in the same sultry style as this legendary beauty. Luckily, this look just appears to take hours in front of a mirror and is actually very easy for you to do by yourself.
Lightly spray a gel onto dry hair.
Use a curling iron to curl small sections of hair
Twist, and pin each twist with clips.
Let the curls set for at least an hour.
Remove pins, shake out your curls and place them as desired with your fingers
Lightly mist with hairspray for hold.
Mary Tyler Moore brought the flip to the front of the hair fashion lines in the 1960’s. As with many other hairstyles, the flip has been modernized and is sported by many women today. The flip of the 1960’s was typically part of a sprayed and teased bouffant. The new and trendy flip is accompanied by soft and sleek hair.
The reason why this classic hairstyle is still so popular today is that it is both flattering and ageless. Women of any age with almost any face shape and hair type can wear a flip with ease.
Actresses in there 40’s such as Jody Foster have been photographed in a sophisticated flip as has 20 something starlet Jessica Alba in her trendy young flip.The typical flip that suits almost anyone ends somewhere between the chin and the ears.
Flips are simple to create with a curling iron, hot air brush or a few hot rollers rolled upward to create the flip. If you want a looser flip add larger curlers or a large barrel curling iron. For a tighter flip use small to medium curlers or curling irons
The 1970’s saw women wearing their hair in a large variety of styles. Some of the popular hair trends of the time were- long and straight shag haircuts, natural afros, up-do's with spiral tendrils, and wigs and hairpieces.
The typical hairstyle trend was to have flicks of some sort especially on the bangs or sides.
By the mid 1970's women were often wearing hairstyles that were based on blow drying the hair into specific flicked positions that originated from a center part.
Possibly the most copied hairstyle of the 1970’s was the one worn by ‘Charlie’s Angels’ star Farrah Fawcett. Her hair was rough cut, layered and feathered. Women all over the globe emulated her trendy style and the influence of this look can still be seen today.
The most popular celebrity hairstyle of the 1980's was that of perky actress Meg Ryan. Her tousled, layered hair, which showed off her natural wave, was copied by many women. This fabulous short, shaggy look is ideal for many reasons.
It’s funky and fun while being easy to care for. It can be dressed up or down and is almost virtually wash and wear.
Meg’s hairstyle is just as fashionable today as it was then. To get this hip hairstyle for yourself, ask your stylist for a contoured shaped to fit style cut with long brow brushing bangs and off centered part. A fringe that frames your face can be added to enhance or soften facial features.
If hair is wavy-curly type, comb a dab of straightening balm like Oscar Blandi Pure Straight through damp hair.
Section hair and blow-dry
When dry, work a puff of mousse such as Frederic Fekkai Full Volume Mousse through hair with your fingers for a textured effect.
On already straight hair, comb a dab of mousse through damp hair and blow dry for volume.
Curl with large barrel styling iron to smooth and bend ends over.
Complete this look by adding a zigzag part
