We first saw the side braid trend start at Alexander Wang's fashion show in September 2009. Kate was the first starlet we saw wear it oh-so perfectly.

Angelina Jolie, 2009
Angie often opts for simple styles on the red carpet. But we love when she does a little something extra like with this half-up 'do — complete with the perfect earrings.

Halle Berry, 2011
Spiky, short 'dos are a Halle signature. It doesn't hurt to have that face either if you're going for a cropped cut.

Anne changed styles many times over the course of Oscar night as one the hosts. But none topped this loose, low bun at the nape of her neck as she walked the red carpet.

Beyoncé is one of those lucky women whose hair looks good up, down, curly and straight. This refined, side swept bun at a Grammy after-party is especially lovely.

Blake's hair is the envy of many. It's at its most fabulous when she goes total California girl and lets it hang long and loose.

Charlize Theron, 2004
Charlize has opted for a retro wave quite a few times. But never did she do it better than at the 76th Academy Awards, where she also took home a Best Actress statue.

Amanda Seyfried, 2009
Amanda busted out the big guns, or should we say curls, at the Academy Awards. We'd give just about anything for hair that healthy.

Keira Knightley, 2010
Keira's angular cut suits those cheekbones magnificently. And it couldn't be more modern and less period.

Gisele Bundchen, 2008
We'd be smiling like that too if our hair looked as amazing as the Brazilian supermodel's. It's no wonder so many women request her look at the salon.

The "Rachel" launched too many copycats to count and pretty much epitomized the mid-90s.

Say what you will about her singing or her acting, but Jessica's hairstyle rarely fails her.
