Sandra Bullock Turns 50: A Look Back at Her Most Iconic Red Carpet Hairstyles

Photo by Angela George

Sandra Bullock reaches a milestone this weekend. The Academy Award winning actress turns 50 on Saturday.

Known for her girl-next-door appeal and performances in "Gravity," "Blind Side" and "Miss Congeniality," Bullock never fails to wow on the red carpet. Her stunning silhouettes and effortless style have given us many mesmerizing moments--especially when it comes to her long, luxurious locks. 

Unlike other celebs who stick with one safe style, Bullock likes to change things up. Over the years, we've seen her sport bangs, buns, long bobs, updos, ponytails, stick-straight strands and cascading curls. Maybe that why she's known as one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood.

She's also one of the most giving actresses in the industry. Bullock supports the American Red Cross and has donated $1 million to the organization on several occasions. She participated in disaster relief efforts during the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunamis in 2004, the Haiti earthquake in 2010 and the Japan earthquake in 2011. She also lends her support to The Kindred Life Foundation in San Antonio, Texas. 

In honor of Bullock's philanthropic spirit and milestone birthday, take a walk with us down memory lane to revisit some of her most glamorous red carpet appearances. Let us know which Good Hair Day you like best. Plus, we'd like to present the latest conditioners, masks, gels, treatment oils and tools to help strengthen and style your own strands to create similar looks.

You'll look like a leading lady in no time!
