Ahh, celebrity hair. We're obsessed with celebrity hair. When it comes to finding a fabulous new 'do, forget those dated hair magazines. Women these days -- and frankly, men too -- turn to celebrity hair for inspiration.

We peruse fashion magazines and the Internet for trendy celebrity hair. I should know, hairstyle photo galleries are by far the most popular section on this Website. I'm a consumer as well -- for one entire year I carted magazines with Reese Witherspoon's bangs on the cover into my salon.

Here, we've compiled our favorite celebrity hair photos. We've broken down the categories into hair types (long, short, curly, straight, etc). No matter your age or style, there's a celebrity hair 'do for you.
