'The Birds' Could Nest In Tippi Hedren's Gigantic Bun

As we celebrate "Working Girl" Melanie Griffith's 55th birthday today (August 9th), we're also taking a look back at her stylish mother -- fashion model and actress Tippi Hedren. Cast as the lead role in Hitchcock's "The Birds" for a sex appeal parallel to the director's former muse Grace Kelly, Hedren wore a striking bun to the movie's 1963 London premiere.

A mix between the recent US Women's Gymnastics Team's messy Olympics buns and the trendy sock-bun, the "Marni" star looked anything but sloppy. Her polished hairstyle can be achieved with a helpful hair donut and a hefty holding spray. And don't you love how the blonde beauty embellished her 'do with a pearl hair accessory?

Shop the look below and check out more fashion nostalgia photos.
