Over the past several decades, there have been plenty of trends when it comes to hair: Bobs, lobs, bangs, perms, poufs, layers, shags, and mullets, to name a few. But to qualify as “iconic,” one must possess something so fantastic it stands the test of time–or at least, that’s our definition. Take, for instance, Jane Birkin’s fringe, Stevie Nicks’s cascading blonde waves, or Grace Jones’s box-cut. It’s been eons and we’re all still referencing and attempting to replicate the art that is/was their hair. See? Iconic.
