The Farrah Flip
While many hairstyles from the ‘70s, like the Dorothy Hamill wedge, aren’t remembered for the right reasons, the gorgeous hairstyle named after “Charlie’s Angels” star Farrah Fawcett redefined glamor and remains as one of the most iconic looks of the disco era.
While the look isn’t as popular today, you can still request a Farrah blowout and your hairstylist will know exactly what you’re looking for.
Created by celebrity hairstylist Chris McMillan, Jennifer Aniston’s shoulder-length cut from her “Friends” days is still one of the best hairstyles named after celebrities.

The Halle Berry Pixie
Short and sweet, Halle Berry reinterpreted the classic pixie cut by adding lots more texture on top and ended up with an iconic look.

The Karlie Chop
One of the best hairstyles named after celebrities, model Karlie Kloss’ look was declared “the cut of the moment” by Vogue magazine in 2013. Modern and instantly exciting, the hairstyle shares a few elements with another iconic look, popularized by French singer and actress Jane Birkin in the ‘60s. While Birkin’s name lives on through one of the most expensive bags in the world, Kloss’ above the shoulders cut with layering and bangs has a strong chance of becoming one of the most famous eponymous hairstyles.
The singer debuted a brand new haircut along with her more mature look, and her hairstyle was instantly copied by many of her fans. With one shorn side and the length of a long pixie cut, the hairstyle was also created by hairstylist Chris McMillan, who struck gold again after “The Rachel”.
A portmanteau of Posh and Bob, the Pob is definitely one of the best hairstyles named after celebrities. Named after Victoria Beckham’s “Posh Spice” nickname, the Pob is a more angular interpretation of the classic bob that Mrs. David Beckham rocked for years. Shorter in the back and longer on the sides and front, it’s still one of the most popular bobs.

The Audrey Hepburn Updo

The Louise Brooks Bob
One of the most famous bobs of all time and an iconic look for the flapper era, the Louise Brooks bob is one of the best hairstyles named after celebrities, even if it’s not as popular as it once was.
