Miss Congeniality might be the title of one of her most iconic movies, but it also describes Sandra Bullock’s standing in Hollywood — she’s beloved for her charm. She is also an unsung beauty icon. Scroll through some of Bullock’s best hair moments of all time to see why.

This voluminous lob haircut on Sandra Bullock shaped the actor’s face so perfectly — looking at this image it’s hard to imagine her in any other hairstyle. The wavy layers add so much depth to the cut while the softly rounded edges add a “girl next door” innocence that is just so ‘90s.

Every starlette had this hairstyle at least once in the ‘90s but Bullock just may have worn it best. The clavicle-length cut was so simple yet so captivating. Not to mention the thin ‘90s brows really pull this whole nostalgic look together.

Bullock’s been working her glossy brunette side-part for years, as evidenced by this vintage shot from the late ‘90s. Her piece-y, flipped-out bob and grunge-inspired makeup was (and still is) a massive hit.

In a high-hoisted ponytail, fun frosted eyeshadow, and a corset gown, Bullock would look just as at home on a yacht on the Italian Rivera as she did on the red carpet. The style is playful, flirty, and altogether fantastic.

A rare departure from her usual deep brunette color, this caramel-highlighted warm brown shade adds the most radiant glow to Bullock’s bronzed cheeks.

For the Oscar ceremony in which she’d win Best Actress for The Blind Side — arguably her biggest career moment to date — Bullock opted for timeless glamour hair stylists will be referring to for years to come. Plus, her very deep side-part adds just enough Old Hollywood appeal.

When Bullock wears red, expect great things. For this event, her hair is pulled back into a complicated, tousled twist with plenty of volume at the front for an almost punk-inspired take on an otherwise classically glamorous look.

The devil’s in the details with this red-tinged, side-swept twist look. Featuring a tiny braid and some artful layering, Bullock’s textured style is footloose and so fun.

Bullock’s dabbled with bangs several times over the past few decades, but this lash-skimming style, tousled and piece-y against her stick-straight highlights, might be her best version — so far, anyway.

Sleek and chic were the operative words for Bullock’s Bird Box premiere in 2018 — and the slash of gardenia-red lipstick, chosen to match her gown, cements the entire thing. Her collarbone-grazing lob, though, could elevate just about any ensemble.

Most recently, at her latest premiere for the film The Unforgivable, Bullock added some rich glossy depth by opting for a dark espresso shade punctuated by warmer, lighter highlights. Tousled waves and a center part make the entire look especially modern, too.
