A true hair chameleon

Everyone has a celebrity hair crush. Our latest fave just happens to be Leighton Meester!

Ever since we first saw Leighton Meester in Gossip Girl, it was love at first sight – of her gorgeous head of hair, that is! Meester has a head of hair worth envying and we've been drooling over her luscious locks for years now. Here are some of our favorite Meester hair moments. Enjoy!

Old school

As Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl, Meester is no stranger to fabulous hair accessories. Back in the day, when she was the Queen Bee of high school, Blair had a strong penchant for colorful hair accessories, and Meester always managed to look adorably naughty while wearing them.

Soft and shiny

Even when she's not playing the fashion obsessed Blair, Meester is just as fashion-forward as her onscreen alter ego. Here, she wears her shiny brunette locks in a lightly wavy half up, half down 'do and looks simply chic and polished at a Golden Globes after party in 2011.

Bold and bangin'

We often see Meester's locks worn wavy or curled for her role in Gossip Girl, but here the fashionista went sleek and straight, and added a bit of flair with choppy bangs at an event in NYC.

Curly cutie

Looks like life can imitate art sometimes. Meester wore her hair in a very Blair Waldorf-esque way for the 2008 Teen Choice Awards and we'll never forget how perfectly these sexy ringlets complemented her gorgeous green gown.

Luck be a lady

These days, Meester is playing a more grown up version of Blair on Gossip Girl. And by grown up, we're mostly referring to her hair, not her behavior. While she hasn't abandoned her love for hair accessories, Blair has moved on to more ladylike hair decorations, and we're loving this adorable little number Meester recently sported on set.
