There are iconic outfits we’ll always remember (Janet Jackson's Superbowl getup, natch), quotes that will forever be ingrained in popular culture and songs that everyone and their mothers know. And then, there's “The Rachel."

We’re sure hairstylists in the '90s cringed when they got their 20th request of the day for the super-popular cut, mad famous by "Friends" star Jennifer Aniston. The hairdo, which became something of a bouncy, layered phenomenon, is one of the most iconic hairstyles in the world to this day, even though it's been more than 20 years since it first made its debut. Funnily enough, Aniston called it "ugliest haircut I've ever seen.".

The days, Aniston has been sporting another questionable haircut, although this time it's for a role in her new movie "Squirrels to the Nuts." When she's not on set, Brad Pitt's ex is sure to show off her California beach-bum tresses which are as perfect as ever.

We look at some of the most memorable celebrity hairstyles over the last few decades. Grab your blow dryers! We’re sure you’ll be inspired after reading this.

Cher

Dark, waist-length hair, parted down the middle. That was Cher’s claim to beauty fame (we guess her acting and singing factored in there as well.) The '60s star still makes headlines today and has managed to keep her iconic mane pretty much status quo, minus the odd cut, wacky experimentation and curly adventure here and there. In Cher’s case, simple translates to memorable.

Brigitte Bardot

The French are in the business of churning out fashion and beauty icons on a regular basis, and '60s sex kitten Brigitte Bardot is one of the most memorable when it comes to hair. The blond bombshell took her voluminous bed head to new heights, rivaling the likes of Marilyn Monroe. Her cascading locks are still remembered and recreated today by the current crop of Hollywood starlets -- Pamela Anderson and Kate Upton owe Ms. Bardot props for inspiring their million-dollar looks. Get the look here.

Marilyn Monroe

It would be a huge miss not to include Marilyn Monroe on this list! The "Some Like It Hot" star's sexy blond bob has been mimicked by so many starlets, including Scarlett Johansson, Kate Moss, Madonna and Lindsay Lohan. Her 1950s retro glam waves were an integral part of her image right up until her last days. Get the look here.

Farrah Fawcett

Much like “The Rachel”, back in the '70s, you could just tell your hairstylist you wanted Farrah hair and they knew exactly what to do. They'd proceed to expertly feather your hair, adding some bounce and volume for the perfect 'do. Fawcett's hair became such a part of her identity, you'd be hard-pressed to discuss her career without also mentioning that wonderfully sexy mane. Get the look here.

Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn’s iconic updo in the 1961 film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is hair perfection. The elegant chignon she wore still resonates today with that little part of us that sighs wistfully at Audrey as 'that girl' in the little black dress, mini tiara and layered pearl necklace. Get the look here.

Diana Ross

This hairdo may not be the most requested but it’s definitely unforgettable. Diana Ross' do seemed almost to rival the diameter of the moon, and is still coveted today by celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Solange Knowles. We’re not sure anyone has come close to matching the magnitude that is Diana’s Ross' epic hair.
