Today鈥檚 hardest working glamsquadders have the lofty task of coiffing Hollywood鈥檚 biggest stars 鈥 and setting tomorrow鈥檚 beauty trends. So with that major (although awesome) responsibility, who do they聽look to for a little mane inspo? We asked the top hair pros in the industry to divulge their iconic muses and their top product picks to achieve that look.

1. 鈥淢y all-time favorite muse聽is Brigitte Bardot. Not only is she the ultimate French girl; she鈥檚 a bombshell blonde. Her hair is classic, effortless, and glamorous all in one聽and she didn鈥檛 try too hard聽(or have a specific look), but can be referenced in almost any style for inspiration.鈥 鈥 Shelley Gregory,聽L鈥橭r茅al Professionnel Artist

2. 鈥淩ihanna, because she wears everything so well! Also, whenever I work with her, we鈥檙e usually on the same page and she gets it. I love that she doesn鈥檛 take herself too seriously and understands the concept of her hair being an accessory. Rihanna doesn鈥檛 have a signature look, but whatever we decide to go with, it needs to stay in place, so I would recommend聽Suave Professionals Natural Hold Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray聽($4).鈥 鈥斅Ursula Stephen,聽Unilever Celebrity Stylist

3. 鈥淚 love Sofia Loren! She reminds me of my mother聽鈥 they鈥檙e from the same region of Italy and both warm and lovely.聽I got the privilege of working with her when I first started my career and she was kind and so, so glamorous. I remember she brought the whole crew her homemade pasta聽and it was amazing! Her signature look is done, but still feels sexy and lived-in. I鈥檇 recommend using the聽T3 BodyWaver聽($149) for Sofia鈥檚 earlier years when her hair was longer聽and soft, and for her more curly looks, I鈥檇 use the聽T3 Whirl Trio聽($270). It鈥檚 such an amazing tool鈥 I use it all the time in my kit since it gives you聽three different curls to choose from.鈥 鈥斅Lona Vigi,聽Celebrity Stylist

4. 鈥淚鈥檓 inspired by Sita Bellan聽鈥 she has dark blue hair cut into a unique shape聽with bangs in the front and a longer shag in the back, so she can style her hair in so many ways. She can put her bangs up to make her look shorter or down to look longer, and she can be classic or trendy with it.聽I also love聽Margot Robbie. Her hair is edgy but fun, and her shoulder-length cut is perfect for winter.鈥 鈥斅Leo Izquierdo, Co-Founder of IGK Hair Care

6. 鈥淢y newest muse is Haley Bennett. I adore working with her because she allows me to cut her hair and she takes chances. Last year we cut it all off like Mia Farrow, then we went into the layered bob, and three weeks ago her hair had grown out longer, so we kept it shaggy at the bottom and cut a short fringe so she had something extra to play with. She was tired of having her hair long and being cast as the femme fatale, so she wants something different all the time.鈥 鈥斅Garren, Celebrity Stylist and Co-Founder of R+Co

7. 鈥淒iana Ross because she broke the mold聽鈥 not just with her career, but with her style from very early on. For me, she鈥檚 the ultimate hair trendsetter with her fearless approach to beauty, whether it was the structured asymmetric Vidal Sassoon cuts聽in the 鈥60s, slick tight buns in the 鈥70s, or wild brushed-out texture in the 鈥80s. She鈥檚 never shied away from playing with different silhouettes, and I鈥檇 suggest聽Caviar Perfect Texture Finishing Spray聽($13) for an instant injection of Diana Ross volume.鈥 鈥斅Andrew Fitzsimons,聽Alterna Haircare聽Brand Ambassador

8. 鈥淪carlett Johansson is one of my muses. I remember she came in to get her hair done one day and I had started using a new technique combining foils and balayage. While I didn鈥檛 let her know this was one of the first times I was using this method, I took her natural hair, lightened it up a bit, and added baby blonde sunbursts. It was the perfect technique to create her new look聽and she loved it. I聽would also recommend Kerastase Bain Chromatique Riche ($41) and Kerastase Fondant Chromatique ($43).鈥澛犫 Joel Warren, Beauty Director of The Salon Project聽(Photo聽via Ray Tamarra/GC Images)

9. 鈥淛ane Birkin will forever be my hair muse! She and her hair are the epitome of effortless chic. Her signature fringe and easy waves have inspired countless hairstyles I鈥檝e created over my career, and聽Dove Unscented Dry Shampoo聽($4) is my go-to product when I鈥檓 looking to get that cool-girl, second-day texture that Jane Birkin聽was so known for.鈥 鈥斅Mark Townsend,聽Dove Celebrity Stylist

10. 鈥淭racee Ellis Ross聽has the best hair in the biz 鈥 her curls are legendary聽and her hair always performs on the red carpet and in photos. Smooth 鈥楴 Shine Curl Defining Mousse聽($3) will definitely help you get her look.鈥 鈥斅Larry Sims,聽Celebrity Stylist

11. 鈥淟izabeth Scott. Not only is she an iconic movie star, but she has a very classy and feminine style that inspires me with my own clients. I love her films and I think she is the definition of glamour.鈥 鈥 Renato Campora,聽Celebrity Stylist

12. 鈥淢y聽muse聽is Vanessa Hudgens. I love using聽Toppik Hair Building Fibers聽($8) with Vanessa anytime we do an updo for the front of the hairline. I also love using it when we do a fresh blowout (with a middle or side part) to soften the part to make the hair look fuller.鈥 鈥 Chad Wood,聽Celebrity Stylist

A post shared by Zendaya (@zendaya) on

13. 鈥淢y celebrity muses include Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Zendaya, Keira Knightley, Fergie, and Lily Aldridge聽because they have great hair. So if you think your hair gets weakened easily, because you dyed your hair, or if you see some sort of hair loss聽鈥 don鈥檛 wait! I always recommend fixing the problem early with聽Viviscal Dietary Supplements($50)聽so you can save the hair that is already there.鈥 鈥斅Jennifer Yepez,聽Celebrity Stylist

14. 鈥淚 have always been inspired by Veronica Lake鈥檚 soft waves. It was part of the inspiration behind the Old Hollywood look that you can get with the Beachwaver Pro 1 ($199), and she is someone I reference all the time for styling celebrities on the red carpet. You can achieve this style by rolling the Beachwaver under, releasing the curl, and setting with a pin. After it cools, you can use the On Set Pro Brush ($42) with flexible hairspray to smooth out the wave pattern.鈥 鈥斅Sarah Potempa,聽Celebrity Stylist

15. 鈥淢y muse is聽KerryWashington. I have transformed her hair into many different styles and she has carried them all very well. Most of all she has become a trendsetter and is known for her signature waves.鈥 鈥斅Takisha Sturdivant,聽Celebrity Stylist

16. 鈥淪ienna Miller. She has rocked short hair, long hair, period and modern styles, and always looks cool, beautiful, and so effortless.聽Although her many styles are聽so versatile, she always has soft texture. I would suggest the聽Suave Professionals Natural Refresh Dry Shampoo聽($4) to get fullness, lift, and texture at the same time.鈥 鈥斅Marcus Francis,聽Suave Professionals Celebrity Stylist
