CBS Soaps In Depth - - News -

Take a look back at Nikki’s most mem­o­rable hair­styles!

When THE YOUNG & THE REST­LESS’ Nikki New­man walks into a room, peo­ple stare. In part, that’s be­cause they’ve all seen her pic­ture in the dic­tio­nary next to the def­i­ni­tion of “drop-dead-gor­geous.” (The on-again/off-again Mrs. New­man knows how to turn heads!) In part, folks gawk be­cause she’s one of the rich­est, most pow­er­ful women in Genoa City (if not the rich­est and most pow­er­ful). But, as of­ten as not, they can’t tear their eyes away from her be­cause she’s un­veiled an­other traf­fic-stop­ping hairdo. Just take a gan­der at these shots of Nikki over the years, and you’ll see what we mean — ev­ery cut she’s had has been sharp!

Teenage Dream

With her lus­trous locks, Nikki had no trou­ble mak­ing her­self a stand­out in the “big-hair” 1980s. If only she hadn’t had such trou­bles rolling around in her pretty young head…

“Crimp­ing” Her Style

Nikki’s never hes­i­tated to make waves — whether in her re­la­tion­ships or with her hair­style. This par­tic­u­lar look only made it eas­ier for her in the ’90s to get Vic­tor and/or Jack tan­gled in her curls.

Blonde Am­bi­tion

Strange but true: The longer Nikki lets her hair grow, the silkier it seems to get! Can you imag­ine if she’d ever let it ex­tend to the Ra­pun­zel-es­que lengths that crazy Lisa Mans­field did?

What’s Up

A so­phis­ti­cated updo is the per­fect rem­edy for Nikki on those days when she’s feel­ing a lit­tle down. And, con­sid­er­ing how many divorces she’s gone through, down days are kind of a given.

Un­tamed Heart

Although the mis­tress of the manor left her strip­per days in the past along with her feath­ered boa, Nikki still oc­ca­sion­ally goes wild — with her hair, that is!

Any­thing Goes

Nikki has the rare face that’s so lovely, it can pull off short cuts as well as long locks. As an added bonus, this look made it at least a lit­tle harder for ri­vals like Sharon or Ash­ley to pull her hair.

On The Lev­els

For a while there, Nikki’s hair had as many lay­ers as she did. And, at bob length, this style added ex­tra drama when­ever she turned around sud­denly to re­act to a shock­ing re­mark.

Heaven Must Be Miss­ing An An­gel

Nikki showed off her play­ful side with a mod­ern take on Farrah Fawcett’s iconic ’70s ’do. All she was miss­ing was a pair of side­kicks and a ring­leader on speak­er­phone.

The Dark Side

When Nikki rang in 2010 as a brunette, she could have passed for El­iz­a­beth Tay­lor. She didn’t stick with the look for long, but it made a last­ing im­pres­sion.

Femme Fatale

Eat your heart out, Veron­ica Lake! Any time Nikki gives her hair a film-noir wave, view­ers know it’s time to pop some corn, kick back and sa­vor the drama.

Nikki could’ve stepped off the ranch and into a music video with this rockin’ look. “Up we go,” Nikki told her hair­dresser. Say­ing “Cut!” can mean more than that a scene is over.

Nikki’s hair was the gold at the end of the rain­bow top. So shiny was Nikki’s hair this day that she needed to wear shades.

Nikki’s hair is so well-trained that this is how it looks with a wind ma­chine on.

Eat your heart out, Jen­nifer Anis­ton! Frankly, Vic­tor, she doesn’t give a damn! Nikki’s blonde am­bi­tion: look­ing flaw­less. Tres sleek!
