• The day has finally arrived. It was just announced that the Oscars are giving long overdue recognition to hair in the movies; the makeup category will now be the Makeup and Hairstyling Award. And to celebrate, we've rounded up our favorite movie hairstyles that, in our opinion, were snubbed of an Oscar.

  • Whether she was flirting with young lads at the Wilkes barbecue or picking cotton during the brink of the Civil War, Scarlett O'Hara (Vivian Leigh) always had noteworthy locks.

  • If it wasn't for Princess Leia, buns would still be reserved for ballerinas and librarians. But this cinnamon bun look changed it all.

  • Greased back hairstyles got new respect after Grease rose to fame. From Danny Zuko's gel 'do to Sandy Olsen's curly mane, there was always plenty of style to marvel at. Heck, we even loved Sandy's pony with the innocent pink ribbon.

  • Hairspray showed 60s hair at its best. It was all about volume, gel and, of course, hairspray. I still want to know how to get the Mary Tyler Moore inspired curl Tracy Turnblad rocked throughout the film.

  • It still amazes us how such a gorgeous woman can transform into Lisbeth Salander, an edgy and quite disturbed computer hacker. Rooney Mara made us all a little jealous that we can't look that cool in a mohawk and half-shaven head.
