Dorothy Hammel hair

Figure skater Dorothy Hamill chose a look that reflected her personality.

'Her precision wedge hair cut was as fluid as her moves on the ice. When she stopped moving it went back into its flawless shape,' says Walker.

'The Hamill wedge became a major hair style trend after she won the gold in 1976.'
