Oh to be so well endowed….with luxurious, shiny, healthy hair. Miranda Kerr’s locks look delicious in this shot taken from her new Wonderbra ad campaign. A center-parted, layered style, artfully shaped into a wave cascade, it’s reminiscent of the seventies styles Farrah Fawcett made famous, yet it has an unquestionable modern attitude. We love the beautiful face-frame and the gorgeous color, which blends from a rich and earthy brown into a few spotlights of honey blonde, perfectly placed to highlight the tousle of the style. For Miranda’s other big assets, you’ll need to see a surgeon; for her hairstyle, click style notes.

Designer Diane von Furstenberg is known for a few things: being a former princess and party girl, popularizing the wrap dress, and her beautiful free flowing curls. Though she used to often straighten her locks, she embraced her natural wave after a photographer wet her hair and took pictures of her as it was drying. After seeing the shots, Diane realized that her curls were part of her identity and began wearing her hair in its true form. Decades later, the Journey of a Dress exhibit is celebrating Diane’s contribution to fashion and culture. Her cotton jersey wrap dress epitomized women’s independence and sexual liberation in the 1970s. And today her curls are inspiring women to love their natural waves and texture. Want to get a look as classic and as modern as Diane? Click through to style notes, you won’t even need a wrap dress, but we’re sure you’ll want one. –– Michelle Rotbart

Arizona Muse’s bob has been through a number of transformations. We’ve seen it sleek and layered, choppy and voluminous, with and without bangs, chin-length and shoulder-grazing. Short cuts can seem less versatile than long shapes, but changing the part, the texture or the volume can dramatically alter the cut’s mood from sultry to playful to polished. Click the style notes for tips on creating a variety of styles on your chin-length cut. –– Laura Martin
