Jane Fonda in 1965

Few celebrities have had such prolific careers and lively public personas as Jane Fonda. Here, explore the actress and activist’s many beauty looks from 1965 to now.


By 1965, Jane Fonda already had nine films under her belt—and iconic voluminous blonde hair, long lashes, and a picture-perfect smile.

Even Fonda’s off-duty beauty is worth a glimpse. Here, the actress shows off pigtails and glasses with Peter McEnery on the set of “The Game Is Over.”

As her marriage with her first husband Roger Vadim was fizzling in 1970, Fonda cut her hair and dyed it dark brown. “I said to my hairdresser, ‘Do something! I want to look like me again,’” she explains in W’s June/July issue.

By 1978, the actress was back to blonde, with bangs and brushed curls at the National Association of Theater Owners Awards. Add blue eyeshadow and silver hoops, and Fonda was ready to rule.

As much of a chameleon as she is, Fonda (shown here in 1981) has sported a version of this short haircut for most of her life.

Sunglasses are another Fonda trademark. For the 1982 Annual Publicists Guild of America Awards, the actress chose this smart oversized red pair.

Long or short, Jane Fonda loves big hair. Here, the actress adds a metallic orange lip to the look at an event in 1990.

But soon switched back to the short, curled ‘do she sports today.

Though her hair has stayed the same throughout the 2000s, Fonda has learned to play with makeup much, much more. At the 2015 Oscars, the star paired a bubblegum pink lip with black and silver eye shadow. Ladies of all ages, take note.
