It’s Hairstyle Appreciation Day! (Yes, such a holiday does exist, though we’re still trying to pinpoint its origin.)
The editors here at HuffPost Style spend just about every waking minute obsessing over our hair, but today, we’re shifting our focus to the celebrity hairstyles we love most. From Rihanna’s edgy undercut to Sarah Jessica Parker’s loose waves, we are always trying to the stars for inspiration when it is time for a brand new cut or color.
Here, 12 celebrity coiffs we’re paying tribute to this Hairstyle Appreciation Day.
“I’ve always adored Rachel Bilson’s hair because it’s just enough — not overly styled or dyed, but colored with care and styled in a subtle, yet glamorous way. I always bring her photo in to salons as an example of what I want.” – Ellie Krupnick, senior style editor
Joan Holloway/Christina Hendricks
“She has the right updo on ‘Mad Men.’ I wish I could achieve such a result (and the requisite amount of sass)!” – Brie Dyas, managing style editor
“I’m obsessive about the lighter hair/darker eyebrows thing.” – Michelle Persad, fashion and wonder assistant
“I feel like one-eighth the woman she is every time I see a photo of her shiny, thick hair.” – Rebecca Adams, associate style news editor
“I DIE for her hair!” – Christina Anderson, senior style shop qvc and home editor
“I believe Karlie looks so effortless with the short hair, and I like that it is simple to style but still has a little little bit of edge Best Deep Wave Human Hair 3 Bundles Of Human Virgin Hair to it. I also just like the back story, that a stylist thought up the cut with her in mind after which it became popular like ‘The Rachel.'” – Lauren Leibowitz, associate style news editor
Sarah Jessica Parker
“As a curly girl, I’ve always looked to SJP for inspiration.” – Shana Ecker, home editor
“I love her, just not a few of her life decisions. Rihanna’s hairstyle on the 2010 Grammy Awards was the principle influence for my hair cut.” – Raydene Salinas, style and home photographer/photo editor
“She executes the perfect shoulder-length cut and makes it look so easy — even with bangs! Ugh. I tried once to tug it off and form of failed.” – Renee Jacques, style intern
“Her hair always looks effortless, though I’m sure that’s not true. Her dark color and soft curls work whether she’s on the red carpet or at Coachella. There’s just something very ‘cool’ about her hairstyles. “- Michelle Manetti, associate home editor
“When it comes to achieving a rugged look with just the right amount of sophistication, nothing beats Beckham’s faded cut. The skin-short sideburns frame his square face and the loosely gelled hair on top finishes the look with an ‘I just rolled out of bed’ carefree attitude. It is fresh and all-around badass.” – Rain Embuscado, home intern
“This hair (and fashion) chameleon serves endless ideas on how I should style my curly locks.” – Dana Oliver, senior beauty editor
