Sarah Jessica Parker
The Sex and the City starlet has sported several memorable hairstyles
throughout the series' five-year run. Whether her hair is blonde, brunette,
curled, wavy, straight, tamed, wild, up, or down -- it's trendy. Period.
Women aren't just jealous of Carrie's fabulous lifestyle and walk-in closet
-- they want the SJP signature look, right down to her long, wavy locks.
Modern Bob, Or Pob.
When Victoria Beckham chopped her long tresses to create a chic asymmetrical
bob, a gazillion women found themselves in hair salons asking for the former
Spice Girl's sophisticated new look. Posh indeed. The choppy crop not only
inspired imitations from common folk, but celebrities followed suit as well.
From Copy-Cat to Pixie-Cut
Rihanna's looks are always turning heads. She straight up stole Victoria's
bob, but we forgive her, because, seriously, who didn't? After catching some
grief for playing a Posh Spice wannabe, Rihanna decided to go from short to
shorter, sporting a closed-cropped pixie cut with layered peek-a-boo bangs.
The Banged Bob
Kate Holmes was one of the many to mimic her gal pal V. Beck's bob, except
Kate's look had a twist -- or should we say, a bang. America can't enough of
Kate's ever-changing hairline, but it's her face-framing banged-bob look
that we love best. It probably won't be long until this hairstyle jumps the
shark. Or should we say, couch.
Always a Classic
Gwyneth isn't breaking down any style barriers with her simple, shoulder
length, platinum blonde look. Revolutionary it's not, but her style is a
classic chic that salon patrons don't feel ridiculous requesting. Simple and
sleek, Gwyneth proves you don't have to be radical to be iconic. Because,
let's be honest, not everyone can pull off a bob, pob, or pixie cut.
Red and Wild
Debra Messing's wild firey locks were practically their own character on her
hit series Will and Grace. As one of Hollywood's most iconic redheads,
Messing's vibrant color is often requested by salon patrons. Something tells
us that her color comes at a high cost -- not exactly something you can pick
up in a box at the drug store.
Thanks to notorious stylist Ken Paves, Jessica Simpson has tried (and pulled
off) nearly every hairstyle under the sun. The blonde bombshell has even
gone brunette and red. We like her best as classic blonde, with medium
length waves that look seemingly effortless (but we know better.)
Okay, we are like twenty years late with this entry, but no celebrity hair
gallery is truly complete without a Rachel mention. The bouncy, layered shag
that Jennifer Aniston sported during the early seasons of Friends quickly
became a hairstyle icon, with its own nickname -- "The Rachel." Created by
Los Angeles hairstylist Chris McMillan, The Rachel isn't as popular today as
it was in the 90's, but many still consider Aniston the authority on what's
hot in hair styling.
Soho to Whoa
Long before Sienna went Edie Sedgwick a la Factory Girl (a shorter than
short pixie style that, while adorable, not many people are daring enough to
try), she was known for her bohemian style -- long, loose locks that have a
'just fell outta bed' look. If only we all fell out of bed looking like
Got Me Lookin' So Crazy Right Now
Beyoncé's chocolate brown hair always looks stunning, but what else would
you expect from a superstar whose mother is a hairstylist? Her long locks,
loose waves, and angled layers are flawless, whether she's sporting sexy
curls in her music videos or showing off a sleek, slicked back up-do while
walking the red carpet.
On the Fringe
When style icon and fashion supermodel Kate Moss appeared with heavy fringe
bangs that almost fell in her eyeline, the somewhat retro look became the
must-have hairstyle trend. Fashionistas say the banged, layered a look is a
style only the supermodel herself could pull off -- of course, that hasn't
stopped anyone from trying.
Long layers, Bangin
Reese's has perfected the tapered bang look, whether she wears them swept to
the side or straight. Her long, smoothed and straightened locks are both
elegant and sophisticated.
