Susan Seaforth Hayes, who has been on NBC's "Days of our Lives" since 1968, is the only actress to appear on the long-running soap opera in every decade. Her on-screen partner, Bill Hayes, who played Doug Williams on the show, is also her real-life husband (the two have been married since 1974). As if she needed any extra credentials to solidify her A-list soap status, Seaforth Hayes additionally starred on "The Young and the Restless."

So, it's no surprise that in true daytime drama-style, the actress has tried out just about every hairstyle in the book and every genre of costume--from brunette bouffants and teased curls to disco-worthy bell bottoms and bold shoulders.

In celebration of the soap star's 69th birthday on Wednesday (July 11th), we're taking a look back at some of her best looks, both on and off set. Who do you think has better style: Susan or Julie?
