What are the hairstyles that we all remember the most? EsteticaNetwork has selected 11 which, for their own reason, can be defined at the most beautiful and memorable. They all have one characteristic in common - they helped make history!

1.Audrey's Up-Do in Breakfast at Tiffany's

She is an icon of undisputed elegance and the film enjoys cult status to this day. The mix can only be explosive. Audrey Hepburn's up-do  combined with that famous little black dress represents the epitome of pure chic.

2.Elvis' Quiff

The King. Elvis Presley is the icon par excellence both for his music and his image. Short combed-back hair, shiny with brilliantine, and a rebel quiff that helped define the young men of the post-war generation.

3.Twiggy's Short Crop

The forerunner of the pixie cut, with all the edginess of Swinging London in the 60s. The Twiggy short-cut is one of the most beautiful hairstyles of all time, as well as a defining symbol of female emancipation and freedom of thought and expression. 

4. Brigette's Bouffant

The BB bouffant is one of the most iconic 60s hairstyles ever; the full-bodied yet free-spirited texture created a combination that only she knew how to wear with such ease.

5. Jean's Androgyny

The 1980 represented a very intense period in hair, with some looks that aren't always too pleasant to remember!

8. Jen's Mid-Length in Friends

Friends was one of the most iconic phenomena of the 1990s, including the looks of its main stars The artfully cut styling and finish sported by Jennifer Aniston's character, Rachel, has become a representative standard of the hair fashion of the decade.

10. Brad's Tousled Look in Thelma & Louise

Bright, blonde, full-bodied and with contrasting lengths. One of the most representative men's hair looks of the nineties was this sexy interpretation that Brad Pitt wears to perfection in the film Thelma and Louise.
