Beauty Lookbook: Julia Roberts’ 10 Best Hairstyles

America’s sweetheart has had a ton of different hairstyles over the years, but these 10 are our favorites. From red to blond to brunette, Julia has worn every color and looked gorgeous doing it.


Strawberry-Blond 1997



Julia had the quintessential ’90s haircut with this bouncy, strawberry-blond style. The sideswept bangs and chin-length layers soften her strong facial features.


Half-Updo- 1999



America’s sweetheart went for a pretty half-up ‘do at the premiere of¬†Runaway Bride. To recreate the look, tease your hair at the crown and pin half of it back. (Skip the tendrils to make it more modern.)


Ringlet Curls- 2000



A year later the actress brought back her ringlet curls and signature chestnut brown color. Natural curls like Julia’s are definitely still a do today.


Cocoa-Brown Waves- 2001



Julia opted for romantic cocoa-brown waves at the 2001 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Copying her look is easy: Use small hot rollers and then gently brush out your hair.


Formal Updo- 2001



Julia wore her hair in a more formal updo the same year. She took home the Best Actress Oscar that night, so it’s safe to say the style was a good choice!


Brick Red- 2002



We love this medium-length hairstyle and brick-red color on Julia. Her impeccably groomed brows add the perfect finishing touch to her classic style.


Honey-Blond- 2002



The actress’ honey-blond locks look sleek and sophisticated in this straight style. The key to her look is using a flatiron only on the ends so that the roots still have volume.


Tousled Tresses- 2006



We can’t get enough of Julia’s fresh highlights and tousled tresses. Get beachy waves at home with a small-barrel curing iron and some light-hold hairspray.


Golden-Blond- 2010



Julia’s flowing, golden-blond hair looks feminine and youthful. She proves that women over 40 can totally pull off long hair.


Smooth Curls- 2012



Julia makes waves look super-sophisticated with smooth curls, a middle part, and shiny auburn color. This modern, sexy look is our fave.
