Sandra Bullock transformed from being a girl from West Virginia to one of the greatest style icons in Hollywood. From bangs to daring wavy hair, the actress has done it all and stunned majorly every step of the way.

Sandra Bullock got introduced to the world after she had the breakout role in “Speed” opposite the actor, Keanu Reeves. In the movie, she sported a short crop hair, and her clean face held the promise of greater things to come.

As an actress, Bullock has done it all, with a Golden Globes and Academy Awards to her credit. In 2015, People named her the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman,” and it’s a title well deserved. 

The actress has come a long way from being the girl from West Virginia, and through the years of front bangs, cheerleading outfits to designer looks on the red carpet, she has cemented her place as a style icon to look up to.
