Aughties icon Mischa Barton's signature look was eye-level bangs that were thinned out—so they didn't take over her face—and sunny California girl highlights.

This scrunchy, beach babe look needs to be on your warm-weather Pinterest board. The tousled bangs give it a cool girl edge and the intentionally un-perfect waves are the ideal rolled-out-of-bed style for lazy girls. Sea salt spray + a braid (or some loose tousling with a curling iron) is all you need.

Though the look is a wee bit dated, we're still loving Middleton's throw-back '70s blowout that swoops her bangs away from her face. To get the look, use a volumizing paste at the roots of your hair when it's wet and round brush your bangs back away from your face.
