The Most Popular Hairstyle The Year You Were Born

1955: Barrel curls

Bouncy round curls were the perfect match for poodle skirts midway through this decade. Jayne Mansfield was just one star who rocked the look day-to-day.

1956: Ponytails

Brigitte Bardot popularized several hairstyles during her career and in the ‘50s it was the long ponytail with wispy bangs.

1957: Soft face-framing curls

What better way to show off your facial features than with some soft, elegant curls? Elizabeth Taylor wore the face-framing style in head shots.

1958: French pleat

Chic and sexy, this look kept locks off of one’s face, and allowed a woman to strike a sophisticated pose à la Audrey Hepburn.

1959: Flipped ends

This look worn by the likes of Marlo Thomas was peppy without being sinfully sweet.

1962: Bouffant

First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy made the bouffant the “it” style for women for years, and made hairspray a hot commodity at the drugstore.

1964: The Bob

Sleek, simple, and chic—there was nothing more powerful than chopping locks into a mod-1960s bob. Jacqueline Kennedy and Sally Field were both big fans of the style.

1970: Centre part

This was the year the centre part became a thing, in part because of Ali MacGraw and the hit 1970 movie Love Story.

1988: Bouncy curls

Whitney Houston’s bob in 1988 was big, bouncy, and completely beautiful. No wonder so many women tried to achieve the style at the salon.
