Thanks to Bollywood divas, we are never out of hair inspiration and hair goals! From Nargis and Madhubala back in the day to Alia and Deepika now; our B-town girls have always set major hair goals for us. And like every other Friday, it’s time for a flashback Friday again at Be Beautiful, where we look back at the unforgettable hair trends and the women who popularised them over the years.
Here are Bollywood’s 5 most iconic hair trends we can never forget...
The epic Sadhna cut
Talking about hair trends of the bygone era, we can’t miss the legendary Sadhna cut. Inspired by her lookalike Audrey Hepburn’s hair, Sadhna Shivdasani wore the adorable pixie bangs in movies like Love in Shimla, and caused a sensation among women in the time when only a few knew and followed trends.
Big beehive hair
Hair puffed in an elaborate updo was popularised by the leading ladies of Bollywood including Sharmila Tagore, Hema Malini, Mumtaz and Helen in the 60s and early 70s. The bulky bouffant was often adorned with flowers and teamed with side curled flicks. Talk about OTT hair!
Mid parted long locks
Braided or loose, sleek hair with side flicks redefined hair trends in the 80s. Women couldn’t resist donning the glamorous hair propagated by Neetu Kapoor, Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi and Shabana Azmi. Don’t believe us? Pull out pictures of your mom and aunts and you’d know.
Fringe Fever was high in the 90s as divas like Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon and Urmila Matondkar rocked the fringe cut. Women played copycats to the likes of feathered and choppy bangs trend like crazy.
PeeCee’s layered haircut
Who can forget Priyanka’s bouncy hair with subtle highlights she sported in movie Dostana? PeeCee gave us major hairspiration when she turned sultry desi girl in her layered haircut that she kept for quite some time. Image courtesy: Pinterest
