Perms, Unibrows and Nine Other Unexpected Beauty Moments That Totally Inspire Us

Slightly quirky, kind of offbeat, not entirely expected, but definitely memorable. This is how we like to consider some of the less recognized beauty moments. From Stevie Nicks' feathered shag to Claire Dane's cranberry red, "My So Called Life" hair, these are the women who are the Anti-Audreys, Marilyns and Brigittes. While that last group of ladies have long set the bar for beauty icon status, they're starting to feel a little cliche. To that, we've rounded up a few of the less obvious but still totally inspiring beauty moments of the past.

Who's your unexpected beauty icon? Tell us in the comments -- we want to hear.
