Theron evoked old-school Hollywood glamour when she attended the 76th Academy Awards in 2004. Her Thirties-style, Veronica Lake-esque waves were a visual delight and the colour was gorgeous and golden. Not only was she the winner in the hairstyle stakes, she also took home a Best Actress Oscar for her role in Monster – not bad for a night's work.

The Inglourious Basterds actress was breathtakingly beautiful at the 2006 Oscars with her feminine, loose-and-low side chignon, which she teamed with copper eyeshadow and dangly drop earrings.

Supermodel looks call for a supermodel hairstyle, and Heidi's 2008 Oscars barnet was seriously statement – along with that dramatic collared John Galliano gown. The Victoria's Secret star worked an outsized chignon finished with hair wrapped around the base – and we thought it looked amazing.

When you're set to present an award at the 2009 Oscars in front of your ex-husband and his (stunning) new partner, you've got to make sure you're practically perfect. Thank God, then, for Jen's make-him-weep sexy beach blonde locks and pretty front plait, all topped off with a flawless tan and a glittering Valentino gown.

When she picked up a Best Actress Oscar for Erin Brokovich in 2001, Roberts wowed in a vintage Valentino dress, which she teamed with a grown-up and gorgeous chocolate-coloured chignon, which sat at the nape of her neck and featured a striking backcombed crown.

OK, Natalie's hairstyle itself at the 77th Academy Awards in 2005 was pretty simple; it was the beaming bejewelled hair band that was the real stroke of genius. Gorgeous.

At the 79th Academy Awards in 2007, the Legally Blonde rocked scene-stealing, super-long locks with a fantastic side-swept fringe. We're coveting everything – from the colour to the cut.

Classic, sophisticated and groomed: Sandra Bullock's 2010 Oscars hairstyle was as timeless as the Best Actress gong she picked up for her role in The Blind Side.

SJP blew everyone away at the 2010 Oscars in her stunning silk Chanel gown – but it was her hair that we couldn't keep our eyes off. The oversized chignon was truly a work of hair art, with its origami-worthy pleats and folds. And those Fred Leighton jewels were a gorgeous finishing touch.

Jolie looked so stunning at the 2009 Oscars, it could almost bring a tear to our eyes. The backcombed half-up, half-down curly 'do was probably our all-time favourite Angelina hair moment, and the emerald drop earrings by Lorraine Schwartz were simply jaw-dropping.
