The most iconic red carpet hair moments ever

Ever since glitter, dancing and music were invented, we've looked to the red carpet to help us decide what hairstyle will look the best with our new party dress.

Whether that's a work do, a ball (if we're especially fancy) or a birthday, we always need a celebrity hairstyle on hand to give us guidance.

From Cameron Diaz's classic bob to Emma Watson's short elfin style via Jennifer Aniston's messy-but-cool locks, we've looked at some of the most iconic and inspirational 'dos on the red carpet ever.

Just call it your ultimate hairspiration. Yes, we used that word. It's allowed, we checked.
