Oscar-winner Natalie Portman has taken on so many iconic roles with signature looks (think Jackie Kennedy in Jackie and Princess Amidala in the Star Wars saga) that it's quick to forget that she's had her own look for decades. While she's most known for her shoulder-length bob, Portman went short for 2005's V for Vendetta and she wasn't immune to the '00s obsession with side-swept bangs and beachy waves.

Here are the highlights (honey-blonde, of course) of styles from Portman's history, from a flapper-inspired turn on the red carpet to her signature style.

When she was still just 14, Portman had dark shoulder-length hair with a flip.


After her role in the Star Wars series, Portman stayed under the radar during her time at Harvard with long, tight curls.


For the MTV Movie Awards, she went full-on boho with tight curls and a peasant top.


At the premiere of Cold Mountain, Portman premiered a Jazz Age-appropriate bob.


A new year brought bangs and beachy tousled waves. Post-Closer, which had Portman wearing a pink wig, fans got to see Portman with a few new looks.

And just a few years later, she wore her hair in shoulder-length ringlets. While she promoted Thor: The Dark World, she had it stick-straight to show off an asymmetrical cut.


A wavy style showed off a new ombré dye job.


More recently, Portman went darker and longer.


The dark hair didn't last long. Portman debuted a warm honey bayalage bob on the red carpet.


It's not as short as her buzzcut, but 2020 saw Portman crop her hair shorter than it's been in years.
