Our B-town actresses have taken on so many roles in the movies they have played—be it a girl next door, a doting mother, or a charismatic girlfriend. While their faces remain the same, their hair goes through several transformations and have created groundbreaking trends among the masses. Here are five of them that are still iconic to this day.
Preity Zinta – Dil Chahta Hai
When PZ took on the role of Shalini, her hair was in soft ringlets that framed her face and made her look incredibly youthful. The hairstyle was a sight for sore eyes since it stood out from the trend of poker-straight hair. It’s no wonder that Akash (played by Aamir Khan) was so smitten by her!
Priyanka Chopra – Dostana
Gorgeous bikini body aside, Priyanka Chopra made step cuts insanely popular with the release of her film, Dostana. Her straight locks swept past her shoulders while strands of hair in the front framed her face. She still experiments with her hairstyles a lot but this has made a lasting impression!
Saira Banu – Padosan
Her voluminous hair with distinct fringes became a trendsetter way back in the ‘60s. Paired with a flick of eyeliner and her charming smile, she was the ideal girl-next-door everyone dreamt of talking to. Whether her hair was up in a bun or left loose across her shoulders, Bhola (played by Sunil Dutt) was still captivated!

Kajol – Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Who can forget the role Kajol played of Anjali Sharma from one of the most popular movies of the ‘90s? The sporty and bubbly Anjali rocked a short bob along with sports apparel, is the epitome of your typical tomboy. Even though she carried off longer hair in the second half of the movie, the short one is the one that is more memorable to this day.
Deepika Padukone – Cocktail
When Cocktail released in 2012, everyone couldn’t help but notice Deepika’s nonchalant role in the film and her unkempt, beach waves. She also had some caramel highlights, which was a refreshing change from her thick, black tresses. Deepika still sports this hairstyle quite frequently in photo shoots; we guess she loves it as much as we do!
