If you have been paying attention to current trends and the latest hairstyles you’ve probably noticed famous actresses and other celebrities inspire that most of them. If you’ll recall red hair gained sudden popularity after Julia Roberts appeared in “Pretty Woman”. Pixie cuts became all the rage after Edie Sedgwick’s appearance in an Andy Warhol film and Mia Farrow brought back the styles of the roaring 20’s after her appearance in The Great Gatsby. She also inspired several pixie cuts after her appearance in Rosemary’s Baby.
If you’re looking for a celebrity hairstyle that has experiences monumental longevity, consider the “Rachel” hairstyle worn by Jennifer Anniston in 1996. This is one of the most popular hairstyles requested nearly a decade later.
Paris Hilton is another celebrity whose locks are often imitated. Together with her on again off again gal pal Nicole Richie, they have created the current trend of long, straight, blonde tresses. Of course this is a throwback to Susan Dey from the Partridge Family as well as the look for Jacqueline Suzanne’s Valley of the Dolls. Another actress that is a master of the sleek straight look for hair is Gwyneth Paltrow.
There were brief periods when girls were teasing their bangs and wrapping brightly colored and wildly patterned scarves around their heads. There were also trends in which girls would roll their hair with hot rollers so that their hair would curve up in the manner of televisions Bewitched’s Samantha.
Gwen Stefani is another trendsetter when it comes to hair. Her platinum locks are timeless and trendy at the same time setting the bar back in the 1940’s and providing a look that most girls of today dream of when it comes to hair. Some of the latest hairstyles include a circle of braids around the top of the head or with bangs swept to the side and bunds on either side of the head. Christina Aguilera is another star that uses plenty of retro inspired hairstyles and keeps her locks bleached extremely white.
If you loved the looks of the 60’s you’ll be glad to know that they are also making a comeback. This hairstyle gained a good deal of popularity when it was adopted by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen and again by Lindsay Lohan. More celebrities wearing the tousled long locks that hippies were famous for are Michelle Pfeiffer and Patricia Arquette.
