21 of Michelle Williams’ Best Hair Moments: From Long Hair to Short Hair


Michelle Williams‘s hair has undergone a major transformation since her Dawson’s Creek days. When she played reformed bad girl Jen Lindley on the teen drama, Williams wore her natural blonde hair long and loose — but as her character evolved, so did her style: throughout the seasons, Lindley’s hair became shorter, wavier, and more edgy over all. As Williams’s career grew, and she earned roles in “Brokeback Mountain”, “Blue Valentine” and “My Week with Marilyn,” so did her personal style. In recent years, the “Manchester by the Sea” actress has boldly sported a pixie cut of varying lengths and shades of blonde. Here, a look back at how the Oscar nominee’s signature look evolved.
