We love looking at eras of fashion for creative inspiration and today we’ve got the 1960s on the mind (see the bouffant post above). One of our favorite style icons from the time of the Mod is Twiggy. If it hadn’t been for THAT haircut, Twiggy, could have been just another good looking girl swinging in London. But when she chopped it off, the world stopped and watched. Ever since, celebrities –– think Miley Cyrus, Emma Watson from the modern era –– have been taking radical cuts as a means to get themselves noticed. Twiggy was a pioneer, as well as an icon.  You can learn how to recreate her look in the notes.

Nowadays, with TV shows like Mad Men reminiscing about the timeless elegance, beauty and grace of the 1960s, the bouffant has come back into fashion. Though it looks like a lot of work, it’s easier than what you think; it only requires backcombing to build vivacious volume at the crown, with soft romantic tousle perfectly fine for the rest of the style.
