Hollywood Hairstyle Trends
Hollywood has long set the standards for fashion and hairstyles. Whether you're looking for a special cut or color, you often have to look no further for inspiration than the small screen or the silver screen. Many of Hollywood's biggest stars have set hairstyle trends that are given their own names without even planning to do so. Check out these styles that, for a time, set the standards by which beauty was judged.
The bleach blonde look has been around for a long time. Iconic starlets such as Jayne Mansfield, Mae West, and Marilyn Monroe paved the way for women to be bold, brash and a little risqué with their hairstyle choices. The baby blonde color made them appear simultaneously innocent and impossibly seductive. Few people can pull this look off, but some of the most popular bottle blondes on the scene today include Gwen Stefani and Madonna.
Dorothy Hamill's Wedge
Okay, so she's not exactly Hollywood, but she did steal the show at the Olympics with her adorable hairstyle. She received almost as much attention for that wedge hair cut as she did for winning the gold medal at the 1976 Winter Olympics. Her style was no accident. She procured the services of world-famous stylist, Yusuke Suga just prior to the Olympics and the rest is history.
Farrah Fawcett Majors
The feathered look roared into fashion the minute Farrah slipped into that little red swimsuit and posed for one of the most iconic posters of all time. It wasn't the hair that was supposed to captivate the all-American male, it was...well, you get the picture. But it was the hair that inspired a million girls to rush to the salon and ask for the Farrah Fawcett. Whether long or short, the feathered look was all the rage. When Fawcett won the roll of of private investigator, Jill Munroe, on the wildly popular television series, Charlie's Angels, her and her hair's place, were cemented in pop-culture immortality.
Jennifer Aniston - The Rachel
When Jennifer Aniston burst onto the small screen, portraying Rachel Green on the iconic tv series, Friends, she couldn't have imagined the stir her hair would cause. She probably hoped to win rave reviews as an actress, which she eventually did, but it was her hairstyle that got noticed first. She has since remarked on how much she disliked that hairstyle, but at the time, the rest of the world loved it! I think I like the new style better, but I'll leave that to the readers to judge.

All the Wave
Hollywood has been overcome by waves! No, not the oceanic variety, but the perfectly coifed, high-fashioned kind. With starlets such as Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johannson and Taylor Swift sporting long, flowing curls, it was inevitable that all of America, and most of the world would follow suit. That is, until the next big style comes along.
Posh Spice's Angular Style
Love her or hate her, one must admit that Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, is a stylish chick. That style extends not only to her clothing and accessories, but also her hair. She has famously worn various angular styles but the one pictured inspired women around the world to sheer off their long locks in favor of a sleek, straight do that is easy to maintain and frames the face magnificently. Other celebrities that have rocked a similar style include Gwyneth Paltrow and Katie Perry, though her's is usually blue or pink!
