Audrey Hepburn

To celebrate Toni & Guy’s 50th Anniversary, a list was made of 50 of the most iconic hairstyles through this past half century with Audrey Hepburn’s character Holly Golightly topping the list with her elegant and of course iconic beehive hair-do.

In a close second came Elvis Presley’s thick black quiff, which would no doubt make the list. Pretty much all of the most iconic and memorable hairdo’s made the top 20, so the list hits the nail on the head picking out all the style’s through the years, but as for the rest of the list, it seems a few made it when they shouldn’t have and missing out some great do’s!

The top 20 see styles such as Marylin Monroe’s blonde curls, Twiggy’s Elfin cropped cut, John Travolta’s Grease Quiff and at number 20 Princess Leia’s “Cinnamon Buns”, which all qualify to be included in the list but as we go lower at number 23 is Holly Willoghby’s “long sleek curls” which of course look beautiful, but no offence intended, are her curls iconic across the globe?

Check out the list for yourself and let us know what you think, which ones have been left out and do you think they’ve been ranked fairly?
