If, like us, your days have consisted mostly of binging Normal People, the BBC3 series based on Sally Rooney’s book, then you’ll know why there’s been so much love for Marianne (played by Daisy Edgar-Jones) and her hair.
From her signature French braid in school to her glow-up waves at Trinity, Marianne’s hair evolves through the series, reflecting the different stages in her life. So, we felt it was only right to pay homage to her hairstyles with a round-up of her best looks.
Scroll down to see all of the times we fell in love with her hair – but be warned, because you will want bangs after this.

The Vintage Curls
Showcasing her evolving style and confidence, when we first see Marianne at university she’s cut her hair into a more mature, shoulder-length cut with an angled fringe.
Editor’s tip: Find that your curls always drop too quickly? Create natural-looking waves that last, while also staying touchably soft with the VO5 Flexible Hold Hairspray.
The Holiday Bun
Some of Marianne’s best looks feature during her summer trip to Italy, like this wispy, undone bun, which is perfect for the hot weather. Credit: @normalpeoplehulu
