Iconic fashionistas like Alexa Chung may seem wholly original, but even the most unique looks are never pulled from the ether. Rather, they are the result of inspired combinations. The fabulous Alexa claims both Jane Birkin and Diane Keaton as important examples. Her signature bangs come from Birkin; her high-waisted trousers from Keaton. By juxtaposing strong elements of different styles you can create something both time-tested and original. Learn more about combining iconic looks to create your best style in the notes. –– Laura Martin

There are few women that have looked as stylish and as effortless as Jane Birkin. Case in point: her signature hairstyle. Loose waves, sexy long bangs, and chunky layers that hit just at the chin. It’s an easy-going look, but it also feels a little tough. It’s a little shaggy, a little mod, and a lot sexy. Click the style notes for tips on what to tell you stylist and how to style it at home. –– Laura Martin

Few style icons have held up as well to the passage of time as Jane Birkin. Her free-spirited look feels as fresh today as it did fifty years ago. She a had natural penchant for timeless pieces: pea coats, t-shirts, flats, simple gold necklaces. Her hairstyle was similarly classic. Woodsy brown, long piecey bangs, and minimal layers look as fresh today as they did in the sixties. Birkin’s look is easy to adapt for anyone with fine hair.

This is a gorgeous combination from Jessica Biel. The length, blunt bangs, and multi-dimensional color combine to recreate Jane Birkin’s iconic image from the Je t’aime… Moi Non Plus album coverBlunt bangs are a great way to give the illusion of thicker strands –– keep them wide and full for the best effects.  The long layers begin on the final few inches of hair, and dance elegantly around the shoulders. The shiny highlights add contrast, interest, and spotlights the soft tousle on the ends. For tips on shaping a similar look, click style notes.
