Farrah Fawcett: Celebrity Hairstyle Icon

Farrah

Hollywood’s Golden Girl, Farrah Fawcett 1947 – 2009

“Farrah Fawcett Hairstyle”Actress Farrah Fawcett passed away June 25th after a long battle with cancer. I wasn’t able to write about her earlier but thought I would just add a few words on her now. If you didn’t know who Farrah Fawcett was (if you didn’t know who she was you would have had to been living under a rock!), she was a pop culture phenomenon whose celebrity hairstyle was envied and emulated by millions of women and still is to this day. Sadly, in the past few years, Farrah had been diagnosed with cancer, thought she was cancer free after a few months of treatment; only to find out it was back again.

The Farrah Fawcett Hairstyle was arguably the Most Famous Celebrity Hairstyle of all time.
Although Farrah Fawcett’s career spanned over three decades, her most memorable role was probably as Jill Monroe in Charlie’s Angels in the 1970’s. At that time, her hairstyle, became the most famous celebrity hairstyle of its day. The funny thing is, that a new slightly different version of the Farrah Fawcett hairstyle, is once again topping the best hairstyles list. Now however, we tone it down a bit.

Even though big hair has made a comeback, we don’t take big to the extreme that it was done in the 70’s. What we have copied from this hugely popular celebrity hairstyle is the layering and curling the layers away from the face. Now we are even cutting bangs into these long layered hairstyles. However, the bangs are styled and sometimes cut differently now than in the 70’s, which is part of what updates the Farrah Fawcett hairstyle.

Farrah Fawcett’s California-girl good looks and celebrity status made her an icon well into her last months with us. Recently she made a reality documentary called ‘Farrah’s Story.’ This documentary tells of her well-known battle with cancer, hoping it may be of some help to others that may be faced with this horrid disease.The documentary was shown on NBC and can be found at the networks website.

The Farrah Fawcett Hairstyle

Farrach Fawcett Hairstyle

The Farrah Fawcett hairstyle was the farrah-est of them all!

Even though Farrah Fawcett will forever be known for that voluptuous head of hair, there was much more to her than that. A pinup, an Angel, a goddess and a fine actress and woman! I don’t think that’s over-stretching when it comes to describing Farrah Fawcett’s career. She very easily could have been categorized as another blonde bombshell who was just another pretty face. But, Farrah instead decided to take the road less traveled and quit a hot series, with millions of weekly viewers, ‘Charlie’s Angels ‘ after just one season to take on her own dreams. Quite a gutsy move don’t you think?

“Farrah Fawcett Hairstyle”Even though Farrah Fawcett seemed to struggle to find her place as as a film actress, she finally was credited for her leading role in, ‘The Burning Bed” where she played the ‘battered wife’ looking haggered and not goddess like at all. This movie awarded her the first of three nominations for the largely coveted Emmy Awards.

But arguably her career high lights came when she was picked by Robert Duvall to co-star as his wife, in the Robert Altman film, “The Apostle.” Even though the film didn’t do as well as hoped, she was still the only former Angle to play in some Robert Altman films and next to such greats as Duvall and Richard Gere.

The Farrach Fawcett Hairstyle made more noise than any other hairstyle in history

In my lifetime, there has been no other person who has come close to the pop culture phenomenon, when it comes to starting a signature hairstyle trend. And, let’s not forget, the ‘Farrah Fawcett hairstyle’ stayed popular for over a decade AND it’s hot again today!  No one close. I was styling hair in the 70,s and 80,s when the “Farrah Fawcett hairstyle” hit mainstream . . . and if you were a woman with hair from that era, I would venture to bet you wore the Farrah Fawcett hairstyle at sometime in your life.

Anyways, I found some trivia about this 1976 pinup poster of the Farrah-est of them all, and thought you might enjoy this. If you somehow have not seen this most famous wall hanging ever, it literally still holds the record for pinup sales of somewhere over 12 million copies.

Farrah styled her own hair for this picture! Photographer Bruce McBroom, used an old Indian blanket for the backdrop, which had been covering the front seat of his ’37 Chevy. The photo was shot in the back of then husband, Lee Majors,’ Bel Air home and no ice was used in the making of this poster.

Farrah Fawcett was probably typecast from this most famous pinup poster in 1976, but should be given credit for making herself a career more than just that moment in time. She also showed great courage and strength of character in her battle against cancer. She even shared with us her experiences in a two hour documentary, “Farrah’s Story,” which aired on NBC on May 15th 2009 and was watched by nearly 9 million people.

Most women find it extremely devastating in losing their hair during chemotherapy treatments. After all, our hair is part of who we are, part of our identity. If that sounds small, I don’t care, I’ve seen enough women go through this to know the truth of it. And for Farrah, she was a cultural phenomenon who was known for her hair. She took to the razor once her hair started to fall out and showed great self-dignity in doing so. She joked with her doctor saying, “You wouldn’t stop until you got my hair.”
