Top Ten Women's Haicuts of All Times

It's no secret that many of us take our beauty cues from celebrities. Recently a poll from hair company Goody officially confirmed it by counting down the six most popular celeb-inspired hairstyles. We've added a few iconic styles of our own to make up the 10 best hairstyles of all time — some of which still work today. Such as...



Farrah Fawcett's Feathered Flip

No one has ever done more for the "feathered" look. While the '70s and Fawcett are no longer with us, this vintage style is still a favorite with ladies everywhere.


Dorothy Hamill’s iconic page boy

Ask any stylist that was doing hair during the Dorothy Hamill page era and they will most likely have some sort of panic attack. This cut was not only worn by women; there were also several little boys and girl sporting this look as well.


Halle Berry’s short cropped style

Halle Berry has always been a style icon. The haircut pictured seems to be the one that is standing the test of time, but realistically, there have been many styles that Halle has worn that have had women clamoring to get to the salon.


Jennifer Aniston's "Rachel" Cut

Since Aniston debuted this style as the character Rachel on Friends in the '90s, more than 11 million women have tried the cut. Fifteen years later it's still a frequent request, making the "Rachel" one of the most popular hairstyles of all time.


Meg Ryan's Shag

Ryan's made a career out of portraying the silly but sexy, quirky girl — a persona best embodied by this choppy, peppy shag. This look was first runner-up in Goody's poll.



Princess Diana's Royal Do

During her short, tragic life, Diana reached the pinnacle of elegance and carved out one of the most recognizable and coveted styles. According to the poll, her cut is still popular with women in all age groups.



Victoria Beckham's Posh Pageboy

When Victoria Beckham decided to shed her "Posh" skin, she took the shears to her locks and catapulted herself into icon status with this structured style. Her asymmetrical cut is another
favorite with women in every demographic.


First Lady

Michelle Obama's Classic Cut

In 2007, Obama was an unknown political wife. Since ascending to the White House, she's handled the spotlight with confidence and grace, thanks in part to her elegance, character, and this timeless and flattering cut.


Marilyn Monroe's Blonde Curls

In the history of hair color there is no blonde more famous than Marilyn Monroe. She may not have invented this look, but she certainly owned it. If you've got the guts to go bottle blonde, this style still guarantees sex appeal.


Mia Farrow's Pixie Crop

In 1968, after Vidal Sassoon gave Mia Farrow this extreme haircut for the film Rosemary's Baby, thousands of women ran to salons, eager to shed inches of hair, along with traditional standards of feminine beauty.
