You might know Marianne from her role on Without a Trace, but you'll be seeing more of her soon as chief of police in this year's revamp of RoboCop. We love her warm coppery natural hair—it totally flatters her skin tone!

The British actress looks lovely on the set of her CW show The Carrie Diaries. Her voluminous hair gives her look a 1980s vibe.

Mbatha-Raw starred in the 2013 film Belle and often rocks beautiful ringlets on the red carpet.

The 24-year-old actress often embraces her natural curls on the red carpet. Here she arrives at the Los Angeles premiere of HBO's 'Game of Thrones' Season 3 with perfectly defined locks.

Ashley's ahead of the pack in the British style invasion, showing us the endless versatility of long hair here with a faux bob (and bonus beauty points for the striking cranberry lip).

Ashley's illustrating the power of simplicity: A  center-parted low chignon looks so amazing and elegant. Plus the style is so easy to acheive!

This London native and Zero Hour actress's eye-skimming bangs are instantly youth-ifying (ala Mrs. Obama's big bang moment).

We fell in love with Sophie Okonedo's natural mane back in 2004 when she rocked braids and curls while promoting Hotel Rwanda. She hasn't stopped wowing us in the years since.  Here she kept it simple with a big hair full of ringlets.

The actress attended the London Critics' Circle Film Awards with beautiful retro-looking hair.

Newton's signature look is simple and chic, and she's giving us just that with straight, sleek hair at the London premiere of Rogue.

We love the elegant simplicity of Thandie's volumized pony from the premiere of her 2013 film Half of a Yellow Sun.
