Long and loose, 2003
At just 16 years old, Lara had locks longer than our legs and had already mastered the undone-and-totally-natural beach look that probably actually took a hair stylist and about two hours to perfect. Worth every minute.
Half-up princess curls, 2006
That bow may be small, but not enough so that we saw past it. This half-up tousled do needs to be archived under “forget”.
Voluminous waves, 2008
In 2008, the sunkissed local beauty gave every Australian everywhere voluminous wave envy.
Textured lob, 2010
Before the bob came the textured lob, Lara’s bespoke ’do until that infamous crop happened.
Ballerina bun, 2010
Why do glossy curls on the red carpet when you can do a scraped-back ballerina bun in a quarter of the time. Lara's queen of the laid-back look.
Remember when Lara went brunette for about five minutes in 2011? We prefer her blonde, but the sleek centre part more than made up for it.
Front twists, 2012
Can we just take a moment to thank Lara for digging out the old bleach after her brunette stage? Taking cues from the ’50s with a side part and gentle twists.
Leading the balayage movement with a warm base and frosted tips in 2013.
Off the face, 2014
Slicked-back and sultry on the red carpet.
She went from beach babe to luxe lady when hair stylist Travis Balcke came at her with a pair of scissors. Suddenly everyone was heading to their hairdressers with pictures, begging for a Lara lob.
She took things to new heights with a soft crop and fringe most recently.
