Why Marilyn’s Blonde Locks Are Still in Vogue

Marilyn’s platinum wavy crop is featured alongside Louise Brooks’ flapper bob, Brigitte Bardot’s undone beehive, and Farrah Fawcett’s winged fringe, in Vogue‘s list of the 10 Most Iconic Hairstyles of All Time.

“Not only is she one of the most revered screen sirens of all time, but Marilyn Monroe’s hair is instantly recognisable – and isn’t that what truly defines an iconic hairstyle? ‘It’s a short, layered haircut that was created with an old roller set. It meant curls and flicks moved so beautifully,’ says hairdresser Larry King. ‘Similar is Jackie Kennedy’s style, but on darker hair.’ The ultimate blonde, her peroxide waves framed that unforgettable face perfectly.”
