 The Long Bouffant with Bangs

Arguably the world’s first supermodel was British style star Jean Shrimpton. In the mid-60s, her identifiable style was the long hair bouffant with bangs (or as they are called in the UK, a “fringe”). The hair is teased up at the crown, worn long and with bangs straight down or swept to the side.

Other celebrities who wore this hairstyle were Julie Christie (who played the enigmatic Lara in the film, “Doctor Zhivago”), French folk singer Françoise Hardy, and, with a more wild and tousled version of the style, Brigitte Bardot and Raquel Welch.
