Nina Dobrev knows good hair. We've seen her rock super-short bobs, sky-high topknots and even a bouncy blow-dry that could rival the Kate Middleton's, and she clearly has the number of a hairstylist we'd want on speed dial. In fact, having trawled through the archives, we can tell you that Dobrev's not shy to experiment.

And though she's never drastically changed up her colour, she does provide us with a hefty dose of hair inspo when it comes to styling. There's been chic red carpet buns, deep side parts, blingy metallic braids and blunt, choppy fringes. So if you're in need of inspiration, we're pleased to say you've come to the right place.

Sit back, relax and prepare to take a trip down memory lane. Here are our favourite hairstyles Nina Dobrev has worn.

Ah, the classic wavy lob. Is there a better way of styling hair that's this length? We don't think so.

Not your average updo. This curlier option twists, loops and knots pieces into place, leaving Dobrev's hair looking thick, glossy and glorious.

The easiest way to update your shoulder-length look? Say hello to the flip-over. Part your hair deep on one side and blast with dry texturising spray. Et voilà.

A super-sleek style like this shows off just how good Dobrev's hair is. The simple wave and extra volume around the crown give it extra oomph. You can get your hair glossy like this by using a nourishing mask like Living Proof Restore Mask (£37) before blow-drying.

This is edgier than her usual style, but Dobrev rocked this blunt bob with an equally choppy fringe just last year in 2017.

Is there anything better than Old Hollywood waves on the red carpet? We love this hairstyle paired with a strong red lip and fluttery false lashes.

With a bouncy blow-dry like this, we're not 100% sure Dobrev doesn't have some royal blood in her. Kate Middleton, is that you?

Okay, so we might need to rope in a friend to help us with this bubble ponytail, but we reckon it's worth it.

This is a relaxed but totally styled look. Dobrev's combo of a red lip and half-up topknow is one of our all-time favourites.

Plaited partings aren't just for festivals, as Dobrev proves here. Teamed with loose waves, a plaited parting makes for an easy everyday hair update.
