If we didn't know better from biology class, one would suggest that acting, like the color of hair or the rolling of the tongue, is a gene that is passed down from parents to children. How do we get it? Well, Dakota Johnson.
Dakota Johnson is now bringing back that extravagant hairstyle trend from the 60s...
With Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, she not only has two successful actors as parents but also a real Hollywood icon as her grandmother is Tippi Hedren. The now 91-year-old achieved great fame in the 1960s when she was cast by Alfred Hitchcock for the female lead in his thriller “The Birds” and “Marnie”.
Do grandmother and granddaughter talk about their roles and acting from time to time? Or about how Hollywood has changed since the 60s? Who knows...
What we've definitely known recently: The 60s inspired Dakota Johnson when it came to hairstyle trends. Because her latest hairstyle is very reminiscent of the voluminous beehive, which first became a hairstyle trend at that time.
The 31-year-old wore the hairstyle trend when she visited James Corden's “The Late Late Show”. She wore her long hair half-open, half tied. To match her slightly laterally styled retro-look pony, she wore the dark brown hair clearly teased on the back of her head.
A hairstyle that is very reminiscent of the beehive of the 60s. This was also characterized by a lot of volume in the hair and got its name ("beehive" = English for beehive) due to the similarity to the typical straw beehive at the time.
The styling of the actress was also clearly based on the 60s. So she wore gold heeled sandals and a patterned dress with bold flowers and drapery on the sleeve by Gucci.
By the way, her hairstylist Mark Townsend is responsible for Dakota's hairstyle trend. He also posted the photo of the actress with the 60s hair and revealed his ultimate styling tips for the star hairstyle in the caption.
As a first step, Townsend gives Dakota's long hair a fresh blow dry with a round brush. Then he styles the hair into soft curls with a straightening iron. Alternatively, you can of course use your curling iron for this step.
Hairstylist Townsend first uses dry shampoo at the roots to create the volume on the back of the head that is characteristic of the beehive. Then he cuts off a few strands of hair directly behind the pony section and teases those behind.
He now places the previously separated strands over the resulting hump of hair and attaches them to the back of the head with hair clips. A good pinch of hairspray sets the hairstyle and gives it a nice shine on top. Voilà, done!
