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.

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.

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