The decade of the 1950s was filled with glamorous starlets known for their gorgeous outfits, makeup, and hairstyles. Of course, those ladies probably had a lot of help making sure they looked amazing — including taming each strand of their 'dos — but that doesn’t make their timeless beauty any less impressive when we look back on them today. After all, there’s a reason actresses like Marilyn Monroe, Lucille Ball, and Elizabeth Taylor have remained just as iconic as ever after all these decades. We were especially struck by how their classic coifs always seemed to hold the perfect balance of volume and style.
Although it would be impossible to list all of the famous females from the '50s and honor the lovely locks of each one, the women listed below definitely set themselves apart from the pack with their strands. Whether they achieved these styles with perms or dyes (or were simply lucky enough to be born with great hair), each one is absolutely enviable. Take a look below to see the hairstyles worn by all your favorite starlets from the 1950s!
