60s hairstyles: celebrity looks inspired by the past

 The ultra-feminine glamor of 60s hairstyles never seems to go out of fashion: this retro style still fascinate celebrities from all over the world evoking the roaring spirit of the Sixties with backcombed hairstyles and soft waves. Inspired by 60’s divas, many celebrities have sported fluffy hair, high ponytails or messy chignon buns. 

60’s hairstyles for long, medium and short hair

 For long, slightly wavy or straight hair with the tips rounded upwards (flip), it is essential to wear a headband or hairband to emphasize the volume. 

For medium and short lengths, the pixie cut – popularized by Audrey Hepburn in “Roman Holiday” and by the model and actress Twiggy – and the bob – in the geometric shape inspired by Mary Quant or in Jacqueline Kennedy‘s variant with upturned tips – are still a frequent style choice.

 Of course there is no shortage of more faithful reinterpretations, such as the hairstyle chosen by Margot Robbie for the “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” photocall, presented at the Cannes Film Festival last May.

 The actress wore the same braids that the actress and wife of Roman Polanski Sharon Tate – killed by the sect of Charles Manson played by Robbie in the latest movie by Tarantino – had worn at the Cannes Film Festival in 1968. 

Imitating her is very easy: just make some braids on the front of your hair, secure them with a lot of hairspray, and that’s it!

 Lady Gaga is 60s hairstyles lover too, often showing off fluffy tails and hyper feminine waves. The actress and singer walked the red carpet of the 2019 Oscars wearing an extraordinary hairstyle-sculpture inspired by Audrey Hepburn in the famous movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s“. 

You can ask your hairdresser to imitate it, for a true diva look.

Another follower of 60s hairstyles is Katy Perry, who has lately sported many looks inspired by the legendary Sixties. 

From loose backcombed hair to the more jaunty pixie cut, the singer explored the rich repertoire of that time by showing off stunning hairstyles – absolutely to replicate!

So, are you ready to arm yourself with a brush, curlers and accessories for your next 60s-inspired hair look?
