Kate Bosworth, 2010
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 Hathaway, 2011
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.

Audrey Hepburn, 1961
Breakfast at Tiffany's came out in 1961 but Audrey's iconic updo looks just as chic today.

Beyonce, 2008
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 Lively, 2010
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.

Cameron stepped out in a chic side pony at the Gangs of New York premiere and made it okay for the rest of us to do the same

Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, 1999
CBK's minimalist chic style applied to her hair as well. A simple bun is sometimes all you need.

Never would we have thought shaving one side of your head could look so fashionable.

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.

Cher, 1970
Old-school Cher hair makes us very happy indeed.
emma watson

amanda seyfried
17 of 54
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
18 of 54
Keira Knightley, 2010
Keira's angular cut suits those cheekbones magnificently. And it couldn't be more modern and less period.
19 of 54
Eve, 2000
Long before Riri went bright red, Eve was making a major color and cut statement.
gisele bundchen
20 of 54
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.

Jennifer Aniston, 1995
The "Rachel" launched too many copycats to count and pretty much epitomized the mid-90s.
jennifer lopez

Jennifer Lopez, 2010
Love it or hate it (we happen to love), this hair is making a statement. Say yes to the modern day beehive!

Jessica Alba, 2008
Braids as headbands are always in style — and don't have to make you look like Heidi.

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