We've been fans of Katherine Heigl since her days as Izzie Stevens on Grey's Anatomy, and we've been following her hair antics ever since. With her new movie, One for the Money, coming out this Friday, we're taking a walk down memory lane and recapping some of Heigl's hair dos and don'ts.

Blonde bombshell

When she first caught our attention as Izzie Stevens on Grey's Anatomy in 2005, Katherine Heigl was sporting long blonde locks. The actress kept her hair that way for quite some time, and has since switched between sunny strands and dark 'dos several times.

Curly chick

Heigl has proven that she loves to chop her locks for a change. The blonde beauty sported this curled and cropped hairstyle at the 7th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in 2008 and looked like old Hollywood glamour with her pretty pearls and shiny strands.

Light brown locks

Katherine knows how to skirt between the extremes of dark and light hair, and she did so here at the U.K. film premiere of her film The Ugly Truth in 2009. We're glad she didn't keep this hair color, though, since it doesn't do much for her. We prefer our fave funny gal as a blonde, thank you!

Brunette babe

Heigl sent heads turning when she abandoned her sunny blonde (and then light brown) locks for deep brunette strands in 2010. While we like the shade, we still prefer our gal with lighter hair.

Short and sweet

Now a wife and mother, Heigl is sporting a somewhat more subdued, mature look. She chopped her blonde locks last year and has been sporting a variety of short yet sexy updos and curled looks. We're digging the new short hairstyle a lot, and can't wait to see what she does next!
