Kelly+Osbourne+Updos+Beehive+VJ1Z8OkIaO4l

Famous for her lavender hair color, Kelly Osbourne’s signature hairstyle has helped her become an icon of fashion. So in the year when the sixties aesthetic returns to the vanguard, it’s no surprise to see her wearing one of the most famous styles of that time: The Beehive. Kind of a hybrid between the Beatles’ bowl-cut bangs and Jackie O’s eternally elegant bouffant, Kelly’s modern version is more twisted and tousled than the classic, which, combined with the lavender locks, bathes her style in effortless modernity. The Beehive requires some work at the vanity table, but get it done and you are sure to be noticed. Learn how via the style notes.

Gorgeous model Bettie Page was more famous for who she was than for what she did. Her fabulous figure, high-spirits, and hairstyle inspired decades of admiration and imitation, though her modeling career lasted only seven years. Her famous bangs, tousled waves, and dark color enhanced her exotic sexiness, coquettish playfulness. Unlike many pinups, Bettie’s photos display a wide range of characters; she looks fierce and sultry one minute, girlish and naive the next. All of her photos are lively, energized and mischievous, full of an irresistible teasing exuberance. Her signature style embodies her mesmerizing, contradictory spirit. Getting an updated version of the look is simple; to find out how, follow the steps in style notes. –– Laura Martin
