There aren’t many women like Demi Moore. The actress, who turns 56 today, has transformed her look for countless roles and along the way, managed to defy all boundaries of aging. Beyond her flawless skin, longer-than-life legs, and sculpted cheekbones, it is Moore’s ever-changing brunette lengths that have had a winning career all on their own.
The actress splashed onto the scene in the early 80’s, cutting her piercing white teeth on General Hospital and sporting a set of blunt, choppy bangs that quickly morphed into a messy bouffant to match her eclectic style. There was a platinum pixie and the career-making bowl cut—a look she portrayed as the dynamic pottery-spinning Molly in Ghost, and a look that secured her fate as an It-girl in Hollywood. Amid her hair transformations, long before Insta-girls like Kendall Jenner would free the nipple on social media, the actress often forwent a bra under a sheer black crop top with natural aplomb.
A few more playful moments followed, chief among them those long disco curls that swam seamlessly alongside then-husband Bruce Willis, but nothing beats her complete head shave moment as ultimate bad gal, G.I Jane. These days, however, it seems the mother of three has hit her hair stride: The Los Angeles-based beauty is rarely seen without those shiny, ebony waist-grazing lengths that are now her signature. Here, a look back at Moore’s best beauty moments, in honor of her 56th birthday.
