Whether the actress goes method or not, let's all pause and acknowledge that, sometimes, the most talked-about character on a show is a starlet's mane. Would House Of Cards'  Claire Underwood be nearly as intimidating if she had a Kardashian coif? Or, how else would we know when Scandal's Olivia Pope was "standing in the sun" if it weren't for her perfect curls? The hair on our heroine's head tells a story too, and sometimes, its journey is just as integral to the plot as the leading lady's.

We've come up with a dozen of the most dramatic hair moments in television history, from Marcia Brady's 100 strokes a night to Annalise Keating's dramatic de-wigging.
