The Charlie’s angel star, Farrah Fawcett has been a style icon for decades going back to as early as the 1970s. The original ‘angel’ with her dirty blonde locks has right from those days set the standard for what good blonde hair should look like.

Her hairstyles are still taken for inspiration and are still talked about even today. Her style could be best described as a very feminine layered blonde hairstyle which during the 70s, were quite common.

She is undoubtedly the trend setter of the modern day layered cuts that we see so often now. Copied often, the original style of Farrah Fawcett has been modified but nothing can beat the oomph with which she carried off her style.

Before Farrah Fawcett got famous as Jill Monroe in the first season of the television series Charlie’s Angels, she was a fashion model and an artist. She has also been nominated five-times for the Primetime Emmy Award and six times for the Golden Globe awards

Her signature style entails her beautiful dirty blonde hair curled up into longer than usual curls, think 3 inch long waves, and then layered into beautiful layered tresses of curls, giving a very elegant and hot look at the same time

Farrah is blessed with beautiful American facial features which are that much more accentuated with her hairstyle. The bouncy hair with the ends curved up along her neck and ending up as curled bangs just over her bright eyes and eyebrow looks so beautiful even in those vintage old black and white pictures of her.


Not long after her starring in Charlie’s Angel, the hair stylist Allen Edwards had his business booming with clients craving for the beautiful layered cut that she sported in the movie in 1977. The sandy locks with side swept bang and layered hair framing was super in demand in the decade to follow.

What made her an icon was not just the style that she sported but how she maintained it as well. She even had a shampoo brand with her namesake, Faberge shampoo.Even years after the success of Charlie’s angel, Farrah Fawcett had endorsements deals that were still worth millions. Not to mention her refined style never faded.

By 1984, she was seen with her mane in a tousled look, that had been achieved with a hair spray. The heavily teased locks with small amount of fringe was the look that she sported for her appearance in CBS mini-series called The Red Light Sting.

In 1999, Farrah took a huge change in her usual style, going from the layered cuts and heavy mane to a sleek straight haircut for a guest starring in the American legal-drama comedy Ally McBeal. The actress yet again set a new trend with her brand new style.

A veteran in Los Angeles by the beginning of the new century, Farrah was not behind in keeping up with her looks. Starring in CBS’s Hollywood Wives: The New Generation, she was seen sporting curly blondes again.

In 2005, she redid the famous hairstyle that she once wore and was seen with the modern version of the feathered cut. 

Farrah Fawcett may no longer be with us today, but she is a woman who will not be forgotten- not just for her hairstyle, but also for her evergreen beauty and charm. Her curls will always be remembered, as much as her winning smile.
