More than 23 seasons of Law & Order: SVUone thing remains the same: Mariska Hargitay.
But some things have changed for the Emmy-winning star, including her hair. Yes, Hargitay’s Olivia Benson has been subjected to succulents over the years – sometimes via culprits, sometimes via hairstyles.
For two decades playing Benson, Hargitay has rocked several hairstyles (and only one real hair no– She said that her haircut in the third season almost got fired.) There were enough changes that you could play “Guess the Season, USA Network Reboot” just by her hairstyle. (It is truly magical and we highly encourage you to try playing it soon.)
“We all know what is the cornerstone of any show’s creative direction,” Hargitay joked. The Hollywood Reporter In 2015. “Poetry”.
And with the return of our favorite officer SVU Season 24 — which premieres Thursday, September 22 on NBC — We’re looking back at all of Benson’s hairstyles over the years. That’s right, it’s an ode to our favorite Captain’s locks—and it’s safe to say Detective Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) saw most of these patterns.
