Musicians are often a source of inspiration for us normal folk when it comes to what to wear, where to eat, and how to wear our hair. Sometimes, the outfits and styles are a bit way out, and sometimes it is incorporated into the daily life of the public. Over the years we’ve seen many female artists prance gorgeous and statement hairdos. From the 60s to the noughties, we’ve seen some pretty amazing hairstyles that drew a lot of attention to female musicians. One that immediately pops up is Cher. Who will forget Cher’s long, beautiful, sleek black hair when she started performing with Sonny? Or what about the wild beach locks of Shakira?
In this post, we’ll take a look at 5 noteworthy styles of female musicians over the past couple of years. We’ll start off in the 80s, jump around a bit and then end it off with something a bit different. Let’s get started!
#1 Tina Turner’s Amazing Mane
This leading lady had the voice that could give anyone goosebumps, and her hair, if you’ll pardon the pun, was simply the best. Tina’s signature big spiky hair is something that was synonymous with this mega diva.
#2 Sinead’s Statement ’Do
Sinead O’Connor’s bald, cleanly shaven head is definitely noteworthy. What’s more noteworthy about this amazing female artist, is that she decided to shave all her hair off as a statement to bring awareness to the generalization of females. A staunch feminist, this iconic star still rocks her short shaven look to this day.
#3 Janis’ Waterfall of Locks
A list featuring fantastic female musos and their iconic hairdos would be incomplete without a mention of Janis Joplin. Her powerful voice was just as mesmerizing as her beautiful locks and inspired the easy-going shaggy look of the 70s.
#4 Joan’s Statement Mullet
Who would have thought that women could pull off the dreaded mullet? Well, Joan Jett made sure that it kept (and stayed) in the world of female fashion and hairstyles. Not that we are big mullet advocates, but Joan’s sharp features accentuated this look with pointy bangs.
#5 Pink’s Fun Pixie ‘Do
Nothing quite says “I am here” than bright pink, short hair. Pink, another female advocate for gender equality, is known for her strong beliefs in the importance of female education and promoting a positive self-image with little girls. Known for her signature pink pixie cut, Pink is still rocking this style today.
When looking at inspirational women in the entertainment industry, it is not very difficult to identify them. They inspire women to be comfortable in their own skin and be proud to be different. Most of them aim to be great role models for girls and women of all ages, someone we can look up to, a friend that can soothe a scar by their powerful message in their music and image.
