From the red carpet to Instagram, celebrities are always at the forefront of the latest hair trends that help define the era.

The ’60s gave us cropped pixie cuts, the ’70s brought feathery layers, and the ’80s were all about volume. “The Rachel” dominated the ’90s after Jennifer Aniston made the look iconic on “Friends,” and in the 2000s, crimped hair and chunky highlights made a major comeback thanks to stars like Christina Aguilera and Kelly Clarkson.

More recently, lobs and blunt bangs have been spotted everywhere. But looking back, there have been even wilder trends in eras past.

Take a look at the hairstyle that defined the year you were born below.

In a 2012 interview with Modern Salon, Heldt recalled the moment she styled her creation on a live model for the photo shoot: “The editor said, ‘Margaret! That looks just like a beehive. Could we call it a beehive?'”

Adding volume to the top of the hair, whether pulled all the way up or cascading down, was a popular takeaway from the beehive trend developed in 1960.

1966 – 1968: The sleek, side-parted pixie cut dominated when supermodel Twiggy rose to fame in the 1960s.

Also reinforcing the power of the pixie was model Mia Farrow, who made her debut in Vogue with an 11-page editorial spread.
