Elizabeth Montgomery was the daughter of a movie star and a theater actress, so she probably had some understanding about hair preparation for stage and screen. She appeared in a wide range of TV roles in the late 1950s and early 1960s, displaying styles from romantic dramas to the "Old West" (such as a 1959 episode of The Twilight Zone, above).
Montgomery is best remembered as the star of the 1960s TV comedy Bewitched. Her nose twitched every week, but her hairstyles only moved a little. Montgomery often had teased-back looks, supported by spray and headbands for hold. That meant tempting movement at the ends, but control where it mattered.
Hairstyles loosened with the times from the 1970s on, and Montgomery's did as well. Her hair violently went down in the groundbreaking 1974 TV-movie A Case of Rape. But when well-styled, Montgomery's mane remained eye-catching. One voter declared her "the epitome of 60s suburban housewife hair."
