No matter what year it may be, the classic, chic looks of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and other simply stunning women will never go out of style. They were blessed with amazing genes for sure—and the aplomb to stand out from the crowd. “These women knew how to play up their best features and had the confidence to emphasize what made them unique,” says celebrity hairstylist and makeup artist Peter Lamas, who’s worked with several icons. “Far from the cookie-cutter definition of beauty today, the women of the Golden Age of Hollywood were sophisticated and dared to show off what made them different.”
Highlight your assets and achieve the timeless, enviable looks these ladies are known for—and turn heads wherever you go—with Lamas’ easy step-by-steps.

She may have raised a few eyebrows over the years with her ultra-glamorous lifestyle and string of failed marriages, but Elizabeth Taylor was also known for her thick, arched eyebrows—a departure from the ultra-thin, tweezed brows of her day—and piercing violet eyes. Now that big brows are back, rock them yourself.
1. First see a professional to attain the best eyebrow shape for your face. Then you can maintain your brows on your own by simply following where they were tweezed or threaded.
2. Brush hairs into place with an eyebrow comb or soft toothbrush.
3. Using a thin angled brush and brow powder a few shades lighter than your hair color (or a few shades darker if you’re blonde), fill in any sparse areas, blending the color in with light, short strokes.
