Sarah Jessica Parker [1] has been a beauty icon for decades. As a child actor, she was in the spotlight with the trademark curls required to play Annie. And it almost goes without saying that SJP's curly locks officially earned pop culture royalty status thanks to her long run playing the hilarious [2] and always quotable [3] Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City on both the big and small screens.
