Imagine Twiggy with long, curly brown hair. Think of Audrey Hepburn with a red bob or Barbara Eden from I Dream of Jeannie with a black pixie cut. It’s sort of frightening, isn‘t it?
Of course, who’s to say that any of them wouldn’t have gone down in history as fashion icons even with different hairstyles? But, then again, who’s to say they would have? A big part of what made these women famous was, of course, their beauty, intelligence, and talent, but it was also the way they wore their hair. Lucky for us, these wigs and hair extensions make it easy to capture the unforgettable style of some of history’s greatest icons this Halloween.
