Princess Diana's Most Memorable Hairstyles Through the Years

Good Housekeeping Logo By Caroline Picard of Good Housekeeping | Slide 1 of 26: Princess Diana was — and continues to be — a style icon. Beyond her captivating fashion looks (Anyone else remember that blue dress?), the "People's Princess" also had ever-changing hairstyles that inspired salon requests for a generation and then some. The iconic short haircut that she famously wore for more than a decade actually almost never happened, according to her longtime stylist Sam McKnight. She spontaneously requested the chop when they first starting working together, but that spur-of-the-moment decision also reveals just how fearless "Dynasty Di" really was. In fact, her transition from "Shy Di" to "People's Princess" is entirely evident in her most memorial hairstyles from 1971 to months before her death in 1997.
