11 Times Carrie Bradshaw Made Curls Look Good
In the list of TV and film characters we look to for beauty inspo, Carrie Bradshaw is up there. (Also: Madison Montgomery, Cher Horowitz, Barbarella—we could go on...) Many a love letter has been penned to her style sensibilities (c/o SATC stylist Patricia Field), but we'd argue that Bradshaw's hair was just as covetable, if not more so. It was practically a character, in and of itself. Proof: The scene in which Bradshaw likens herself to a real-life Katie from The Way We Were with her complicated c-c-c-curls: "The world is made up of two types of women; the simple girls and the Katie girls..." We've never wanted curly hair more.
In honour of curly-haired girls (and complicated girls) everywhere, we've compiled 11 of Bradshaw's best-ever hair looks.

Classic Carrie curls. This centre-parted look made us wish we had SJP's natural texture so much that it sent us in search of a small-barreled curling iron (and lots of mousse) to DIY.
Who says curly hair can't go slick? The beauty of this style is the play in textures. To get the look, make like Carrie (or SJP's stylist, anyway) and sleek back the top of your hair, leaving the bun wavy.
There is so much to love about this look. (That outfit for starters!) Carrie's hair still managed to steal the show with a lion-esque mane coming courtesy of that brushed out texture.
Proof a simple tuck-behind-the-ear is sometimes all you need to switch up your style. That, and an oversized flower brooch.
