Audrey Hepburn

You don't need Tiffany's diamonds to recreate Audrey Hepburn's iconic look -- just a sharp scissors.

The queen of the pixie crop proved you can have boyish hair and still look like a (Fair) lady, inspiring celeb copycats Winona Ryder and Carey Mulligan.

1960s

Twiggy

It's the decade that gave us the thigh-flashing mini, but the model's haircut to match was much more demure.

Crowning her skeletal frame and doe eyes, Twiggy's androgynous stark blonde bob created an image that epitomised the era.

1970s

Farrah Fawcett

With her huge golden curls, megawatt smile and tiny hotpants, Charlie's most popular Angel defined the all-American blonde.

Representing the type of woman who fought crime and still had time for rollers, the Farah Fawcett Flick practically invented girl power.

1980s

Joan Collins versus Linda Evans

It was hairspray at dawn for the sparring ice-cold blonde Krystle (Evans) and brunette superbitch Alexis (Collins) on quintessential '80s soap Dynasty.

And the only thing bigger than the egos around Carrington estate was the '80s hair, which was fabulously high maintenance -- just like the ladies.

1990s

Jennifer Aniston

Whatever about her Friends, in the nineties every woman wanted Rachel Green's sexy bed-head hair at least. Dubbed simply 'The Rachel', the long shag sported by Jennifer Aniston in the first two seasons of the television juggernaut spawned its own legion of female fans.

Aniston, who has since switched to her signature long tresses, wasn't one however: "I couldn't hate it more. It just wasn't me."

2000s

Angelina Jolie

Not only did she nab her man, but raven haired vixen Angelina Jolie nabbed the title of must-have mane from Jennifer Aniston too.

With tresses as bountiful as her lips, the modern-day Rita Hayworth of hair brings old-school Hollywood glamour to the red-carpet every time. Now if only she'd get Brad to shave off that mangy beard.
