If you want to change your appearance, consider a famous blonde hairstyle. Long referred to as sexy bombshells, famous blondes from Marilyn Monroe to Blake Lively entice the average woman to step out of reality and into fun. A good hairstyle can make a woman feel like a celebrity, or at the least, boost her self-esteem. Most stylists keep an eye on celebrity fashion trends and can identify a style by the character’s or actor’s name.
Known as the original blonde bombshell, Marilyn Monroe set trends still popular today. The actress has links to six popular hairstyles, according to the Beauty and the Bath website. Most famous for her medium-length wavy hairstyle, Monroe’s style requires approximately 30 minutes to create. The process includes applying mousse, blow drying hair with a radial brush, using hot rollers and applying molding cream.
In the 1970s, Farrah Fawcett’s long-layered shag hairstyle inspired thousands of women to rush to salons for the Farrah. Her feathered hairstyle played an instrumental part of her sex appeal, according to the Haircut Hairstyle website. To get the right amount of volume for the look, your hair needs to be at least shoulder-length. The cut works for straight and wavy hair, and it utilizes a V-shaped elevation to layer the hair evenly, reports the Hair Finder website. Celebrities, including Julianne Hough, wear their hair in similar styles with modern twists.
As an actress, Meg Ryan lets her personal style blend with the character she is playing. Her hairstyles, from her long locks in “Top Gun” and “When Harry Met Sally” to her short, choppy shag in “French Kiss,” have set trends. The shag look is one of the most popular hairstyles for a famous blonde, according to the “Marie Claire Magazine.” The style came in second in a poll conducted for the magazine. Featuring shaggy layers and multiple colors of highlights, this blonde hairstyle embodies fun.
With her role as Serena Van der Woodsen on “Gossip Girl,” Blake Lively entered the ranks of famous blonde hairstyles. Stylists, such as New York-based John Barrett, have clients coming in every day asking for variations of Lively’s hair. Barrett believes the look is popular because people want the glamorous life of Serena. The hairstyle features long hair with low layers. Described as a mussed-up tussle, the hair works best on tall and slim women, says Nuri Yurt, another New York-based stylist.
