Every so often a celebrity’s hairstyle just takes on a life of its own. These five looks have had an undeniable impact on fashion and beauty, and have been reproduced in salons everywhere.

1976 “Farrah Fawcett flip”

Farrah, according to her friend Nels Van Patten, styled her own hair for her iconic red swimsuit poster, which sold millions of copies – the best selling poster of all time, says Smithsonian curator Dwight Bowers.

1995 “The Rachel”

Stylist Chris McMillan confessed to Women’s Wear Daily that he was high when he gave Jennifer Anniston what she called “the ugliest haircut” she’d ever seen. 11 million women have tried this cut, named after her character on “Friends,” according to Marie Claire magazine.

1996 “Sally Shag”

Stylist Sally Hershberger gave Meg Ryan a shag haircut that is still popular (also referred to as a “Meg Ryan.”) TotalBeauty.com says Sally is “still the woman you want to see if you want a shag.”

2007 Rihanna’s Assymetrical Bob

Stylist Ursula Stephen gave Rihanna a new look that set her apart from her contemporaries and catapulted her career. Ursula also did Laverne Cox’s braided crown for the 2015 SAG awards.

2009 “The Serena”

Jennifer Johnson, Blake Lively’s stylist on the set of “Gossip Girl,” makes waves for her character Serena by twisting Blake’s damp hair into ballerina bun until it dries, then gently releasing it.
