One show business publication called Ann-Margret Olsson "a gold mine" when she became a U.S. celebrity in the early 1960s. She had a good singing voice and strong acting skills. And as she put it in her autobiography, she knew how to become a "Sexpot-Banshee" when the moment called for it. Among other things, that meant developing eye-catching hair.
Ann-Margret (who performs without a last name) describes herself as a "natural brunette." Her famous and occasionally adjusted red color was the idea of stylist Sydney Guilaroff, who also styled fellow Hall of Fame member Lana Turner. The hair was long in movies such as Viva Las Vegas with Elvis Presley, with bangs appearing from time to time to protect the style from collapsing into her face.
Ann-Margret has shortened her styles as she's matured. While later looks have stopped around her shoulders, she's kept the color which Hair Fans of several decades remember best -- as well as plenty of fullness to keep her hair interesting. While she became a naturalized U.S. citizen at age 8, Swedish residents can claim her as their country's classic hair standard.
