Whoever said the eyes are the windows to the soul clearly wasn't paying attention to the hair.

Whether you are a curly-headed cutie, or a straight-laced bob, sometimes our coif matches who we are inside. Have you ever been having a fantastic day and caught a glimpse of your shimmering, beautiful locks in the mirror? Or felt lethargic and noticed your hair is flat and lifeless?

We all have those days where the best way to gauge our internal chi is by checking out our hairstyle. Even celebrities. In partnership with our friends at Motions Hair Care, we have compiled this list of our favorite A-listers who are wearing their hearts on their sleeves. I mean, their heads.

  • Beyonce

    They don't call her "Sasha Fierce" for nothing.
  • NeNe Leakes
    AP
    In addition to her bedroom eyes and big smile, this Real Housewife's platinum hair reflects her strong, sultry persona.
  • Vivica A. Fox
    Getty Images
    This screen siren is no nonsense, just as her tightly woven updo suggests.
  • Taye Diggs
    Getty Images
    Smooth, smirky and totally handsome... sometimes, less really is more.
  • Halle Berry
    AP
    She might be smiling, but you can tell this girl has an edge.
  • Viola Davis
    Getty Images
    Viola's tight, short curls really reflect the vibe she gives off: Cool and controlled, yet still up for a good time.
  • Kerry Washington
    Getty Images
    Kerry's simple tresses might be beautiful, but they seem to mirror her boredom (who likes giving speeches, anyway?)
  • Diana Ross
    Getty Images
    This one is pretty easy. The bountiful curls, the larger-than-life glasses: Everything is just a reflect of how spunky and awesome Diana Ross really is!
  • Rihanna
    WikiMedia:
    A little naughty and a little nice... we think this style describes RiRi perfectly.
  • Terrence Howard
    AP
    A reddish, coiled coif is just as intriguing and endearing as Mr. Howard himself... and that mischievous smile doesn't hurt, either.
  • Jada Pinkett Smith
    Getty Images
    This momma knows how to tap into her child-like side. Those loose curls keep Jada young and playful, just like her sweet son!
  • Sanaa Lathan
    Getty Images
    This beauty is looking slightly unhappy, as reflected by her pretty, but asymmetrical waves.
  • Nia Long
    Getty Images
    Could this lady (and her hair) BE any cuter and spunkier?
  • Paula Patton
    Getty Images
    Paula may be smiling, but her eyes give away a certain hardness. Even her often well-coiffed hair is looking contained but slightly out of whack if you take a closer look.
  • Whoopi Goldberg
    Getty Images
    These famous dreadlocks are creative and quirky, just like Whoopi herself!
  • Michelle Obama
    Getty Images
    The First Lady knows how to let her hair fly and have an awesome time!
  • Jennifer Hudson
    Getty Images
    Oh hey there, sassy fedora-face.
