The Most Iconic Hairstyles

The Iconic 110 Cameras mini-series is your guide to finding the perfect compact camera to use the new Orca B&W Film with! Since we're on the topic of iconic imagery, we're sharing this gallery of the 10 most iconic celebrity coiffures. From the Beatles' mop tops to Brigitte Bardot's bedroom hair, we're sure you've aspired for 'dos like this!

I’m sure we’ve all gone into salons or barbershops with photos in hand, instructing hair stylists to make us “look like this” at least once. TIME takes a look at the most wanted hairdos made popular by equally admired celebrities. Check out Farrah Fawcett’s feathery layers, Elvis Presley’s suave pompadour, Zelda Fitzgerald’s flapper bob, Jennifer Aniston’s “Rachel” layers, and Pam Grier’s retro afro!

“Millions of women were launched into a follicular frenzy by her hair: a long, layered shag crafted by her ‘Friends’ hairdresser Chris McMillan. Though it was copied endlessly throughout the ‘90s, Aniston recently copped to hating the ’do, stating, "I think it was the ugliest haircut I’ve ever seen."

Of course, you can’t miss The Beatles’ unmistakable mop tops, Brigitte Bardot’s sexy tousled tresses, Veronica Lake’s glamorous waves, Mia Farrow’s pixie cut, and Bob Marley’s symbolic dreads.

“Though dreadlocks are usually associated with the Rastafarian movement, the twisted coils of hair have been worn by ethnic groups around the world. But no one is as synonymous with dreads as reggae icon Bob Marley. Born in Jamaica, Marley created soulful songs that spread reggae all over the globe. What was a lifestyle choice and an act of rebellion for Marley became a fashion statement for others, as the look was adopted by reggae and counterculture fans alike.”
