60´s Haircuts - Female

Not all of the possible styles and not all of the possible variations, but a few.
The Flip, here worn by Dianna Rigg.  Mary Tyler Moore may have made the flip hairstyle famous through her appearance on "The Dick Van Dyke Show," but she was not the first to sport the look. During the 1930s, Katherine Hepburn wore a similar flip hairstyle, as did Joan Crawford.
The flip can be worn chin-length, shoulder-length or longer to achieve different looks. The flip hairstyle can be worn swept back away from the face, brushed across the face, or a combination with some select strands draping the face.
Jean Seberg and her "Urchin" hairstyle.

Although angular bobs were his signature in the early 1960s, Sassoon went even shorter in 1965 with the five-point cut on model Grace Coddington. A cropped helmet with a spike of hair at each ear and a w at the nape of the neck, the look could be styled with a simple shake of the head.
Vidal Sasoon and Mary Quant

Julie Driscoll and the "Pixie" style, also created by Sasoon in the 60´s. Pixie cuts were made famous by, among others,  Twiggy and Mia Farrow
The Ronettes with thier "Beehive" hairstyles, developed in 1960 by Margaret Vinci Heldt owner of the Margaret Vinci Coiffures  Chicago
Brigit Bardot and the "Bardot Ponytail" or the "Half-up-do" style.

A bowl cut, also known as a helmet haircut or a mushroom cut, similar to a "pageboy" cut worn mainly by men.

Made popular in the 60´s by Vidal Sasoon. A bob cut or bob.A short haircut for women (and occasionally men) in which the hair is typically cut straight around the head at about the level of the jaw-level, often with a fringe (or "bangs") at the front.
