A haircut is one of the most important components of an image, which must correspond to a large number of parameters, that is, suit your style, temperament, height, body type and facial contours. However, history knows a large number of hairstyles that have managed to gain the status of timeless and become the object of passion of many women around the world - regardless of appearance and taste preferences. The leaders among timeless haircuts were celebrated together with the expert of Redken Artist Inna Salibekova.
The style of the first lady Jacqueline Kennedy gave us more than a dozen successful looks, and also a variation of the bob haircut, which immediately became the number one trend of its time and continues to remain a popular request among salon visitors today. Jackie's haircut is a voluminous bob that allows you to open or close your forehead and does not require full styling. It is ideal for those with a square face with sharp features, making them softer and smoother.
The 60s became the finest hour of pixie haircuts, which was fashioned by the supermodel Twiggy - she was one of the first to appear with a hairstyle "like a boy" and revolutionized the world of beauty and fashion. "Twiggy" is short hair, brushed smoothly in the side parting. Depending on the styling, it will always look different and create the image you need: from a playful child to a "steel" lady. The haircut is suitable for women with an oval face shape and for girls who prefer both free street style and classic or romantic styles.
The legend of the fashion world of the 90s, Linda Evangelista was nicknamed "The Chameleon" for a large number of beauty experiments, which she never tired of doing on her hair. Each transformation of the model became the subject of heated discussions between fans and designers, but the most famous of them happened with the filing of the famous photographer Peter Lindbergh. It was he who advised Linda to cut her hair and volunteered to capture the cutting process in a separate photo shoot (read also: "More than just a fashion photographer: the magic of Peter Lindbergh").
Subsequently, hairdresser Julien d'Is recalled that he did not know at all how to cut a supermodel, and his hands were literally shaking with uncertainty and fear of making an unnecessary movement with scissors. At that moment, Linda could not hold back tears, because a short haircut for a model is always a big risk that can cost a career. According to the stylist, the inspiration came by itself, and the result radically changed the life of its owner and made her the most recognizable cover girl of her time.
The Evangelista hairstyle will help create a daring, sexy look and suit any type of face. It will harmoniously fit into both classic and extravagant styles.
Another haircut that gained incredible popularity in the 90s is "Rachel", which was brought into fashion by the heroine Jennifer Aniston from the TV series "Friends". Bright and charismatic, Rachel Green became a role model for many of the fair sex, so the cascade with "torn" strands (this effect was achieved by using a razor instead of scissors) made a splash in the beauty industry of that time. However, to Jennifer Aniston herself, she seemed one of the ugliest hairstyles that she had ever seen, so the actress dreamed of getting rid of her as quickly as possible.
But there is no dispute about tastes, and "Rachel" still remains in the top of the most popular timeless haircuts. It will suit any face shape, from square to round, and what's more, it is non-styling and extremely versatile.
Bob a la Beckham
Victoria Beckham is the queen of short haircuts, and her asymmetrical bob has already become the hallmark of the British designer (see also: "Everything you wanted to know about short haircuts"). This hairstyle will help create a bold and feminine look at the same time, which will play profitably in a business style. Asymmetry pleasantly refreshes the appearance, makes it brighter and more interesting, which Vicki knows firsthand. It is especially suitable for petite girls with an oval face shape and will add a little peppercorn to the image.
