Linda Evangelista's Wildest Runway Hairstyles Over The Years

From blonde and black faux locs to cotton candy Afro wigs, Linda Evangelista has donned many 'dos.

As one of the "Original Supermodels," including Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington and Tatjana Patitz, Linda Evangelista's ever-changing hair made her stand out among her '90s model contemporaries.

Her bold decision to have editorial stylist Julian d'Ys chop her shoulder-length strands into a boyish pixie in 1988 was risky. But as she told People magazine, "It quadrupled my rate." Evangelista went on to pose for the January 1990 cover of British Vogue, star in George Michael's "Freedom! '90" music video (with a new platinum blonde hair color) and proclaim in an October 1990 interview with Vogue, "We don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day." Total girl boss moves.

The Canadian-born beauty's ability to effortlessly transform made her one to watch on the runways. From blonde and black faux locs to cotton candy Afro wigs, Evangelista has donned many 'dos all in the name of fashion.

In celebration of Evangelista's 51st birthday on May 10, we take a stroll down memory lane with this photo retrospective of her wildest runway hairstyles.
