We've singled out some of TV's most memorable manes—long and short, curly and straight, outrageous and outlandish—for National Hair Day on Oct. 1. Did your favorite make the cut?

Regina Hall as Dawn Towner

Big hair, don't care! As Dawn Towner on the '80s-set Wall Street–themed comedy Black Monday, actress Regina Hall rocks the decade's trademark voluminous locks and shoulder pads. "I'm having a little too much fun with all the bows in my hair," Hall told Deadline. "But I like it."

Stream Seasons 1 and 2 of Black Monday on SHOWTIME and SHOWTIME ANYTIME apps, as well as via SHOWTIME On Demand.

Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper

Betty's signature pony is to-die-for on Riverdale, but there's actually meaning behind the mane, as Lili Reinhart once told Glamour magazine. "When it comes to having her hair down or lower, like a lower pony, it's usually reflective of her mental state," Reinhart said. So when Betty's buttery blonde hair is down, so is she.

Cush Jumbo as Lucca Quinn

If looks could kill, Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) would slay! But her sleek pixie cut is no accident, according to The Good Wife head hairstylist Silvie Salle. "For her character to become this stronger, young lawyer, especially a woman of color in the industry, she had to have the look, she had to look powerful," Salle explained.

Sure, I Love Lucy was originally in black and white, but is there really a more famous redhead in TV history than Lucy (Lucille Ball)?

The Talk host Sharon Osbourne had dyed her hair deep red for nearly two decades but grew tired of the upkeep. In February, she went au naturel, debuting a sleek silver 'do on the panel.

Simone Missick—who plays Judge Lola Carmichael on CBS' All Rise—says she is "so thankful to have a thick head of kinky-curly hair." As she told Hype Hair: "I love my texture and my ability to style it in so many ways. I'm always changing my look, whether it's a twist-out or a pouf or a braided style, and it's my texture that allows for the versatility."

Fran Drescher as Fran Fine

"Big hair and short skirts. That's what got Mel Gibson the Oscar," quipped Fran Fine (played by Fran Drescher) on the ’90s fish-out-of-water sitcom The Nanny. As the "flashy girl from Flushing," Drescher was rarely seen without a teased, sprayed, and volumized-to-the-max ’do.

Although she was born and raised in the Motor City, by the time Simone Missick was making it big she'd moved most of her family cross-country to the City of Angels. "I think I got most of them to L.A. by 2014—everyone except my sister, who is still holding down the fort in the Detroit area," says the actress who plays Judge Lola Carmichael on All Rise. "She's a woman who had dreamed of being a judge since the fifth grade," says Missick of her character. "It's not your typical legal drama because it's more about the people than the cases, and there's a lot of humor."

While her home base and work space may now be on the West Coast, Simone Missick returns to Detroit at least once a year. "It's a city that is culturally rich with music and history, but for me Detroit is a love letter to food." Let's eat (and shop and sightsee)!

Snap A Selfie

Everyone should go downtown and take a photo in front of The Spirit of Detroit. It's a huge, iconic statue, and underneath the sculpture there's a scripture that reads: "Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."

Right across from that statue is a memorial to [boxing hero] Joe Louis that is often called The Fist. Practically every car commercial that shoots in Detroit shows that giant bronze fist.

Spend A Day Outside

I used to go to Belle Isle Park from elementary all the way through high school. It's got fountains and a zoo, and if you want to tap into your inner child you can ride down the giant slide. It's 987 acres right in between Michigan and Ontario. You can drive over the bridge or just walk; it's a huge outdoor space in the middle of the city and another great spot to take pictures.

Rest Up!

The Atheneum Suite Hotel is a gorgeous inn where my friends and I stayed when we went back for a friend's bachelorette party and wedding. It's smack-dab in the middle of the city and has a spectacular mural in the lobby.

Pick Up A Souvenir

Personally, I bring back boxes of Detroit's Red Hot Better Made potato chips. But if you want something easier to pack, go to one of the Detroit vs. Everybody stores and get a T-shirt.

The brand was started by entrepreneur Tommey Walker. He came up with the idea to put the slogan on shirts, but it became immortalized when Eminem, Big Sean, Danny Brown, and a bunch of other rappers released a song by the same name. The "vs. everybody" slogan has now cropped up everywhere from L.A. to Brooklyn, but Detroit was first.

Snack On Southern Comforts

There's a great restaurant called Kuzzo's Chicken & Waffles, which is owned by a guy I went to high school and college with, former NFL player Ron Bartell. The restaurant whips up fried chicken and red velvet waffles, shrimp and grits, and fried green tomatoes.

It's on a street named Livernois, which is known as the Historic Avenue of Fashion. Back in the day, it was where every Motown star and music exec bought clothes. Now it's making a comeback—shops, art stores, and restaurants.

Visit History

Growing up, I did a lot of community theater and once had the good fortune of doing a play at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. It's a great space located in central Detroit; they do all types of things there, from art displays to community events.

See Outsider Artwork

While there is a new art scene in Detroit, there's also a scene that has been there forever. Visit The Heidelberg Project, created by the artist Tyree Guyton in one of Detroit's forgotten neighborhoods. It's on the east side, where I grew up, and it's a huge outdoor statement on poverty and plight in the city.

Sip A Classic Cocktail With Wings

I'm vegan now, but there's this place, Sweetwater Tavern, that has been around forever—I want to say their wings were [named among] the best in the United States. Wings with blue cheese dressing and a gin and tonic cocktail on the side are great.

Hear Some Motown

Visit the Motown Museum, aka "Hitsville U.S.A." It's in the original house where legendary producer Berry Gordy created many recordings with soon-to-be superstars like Marvin Gaye and The Supremes.

If you want to hear some live music, there's also the Aretha Franklin Amphitheatre (pictured above). They have outdoor concerts all summer, and if you're sailing by on the Detroit River you can hear the music from your boat.

When it comes to award-worthy shows and performances, it's been an embarrassment of riches in the age of Peak TV. But when the Television Academy announces its Emmy nominations on July 28—yes, the show will go on in September—fingers crossed we hear these 10 names among the nods. Some made us laugh, some made us cry, and some made us laugh until we cried.

The Good Fight For Outstanding Drama Series + Christine Baranski For Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series

From Season 4's opening what-if standalone—which reimagined a world where Hillary Clinton became president—to the season-ending Jeffrey Epstein episode (with a ballsy final shot), TV's best drama continues to shock and awe. Christine Baranski was nominated six times in a row for playing Diane Lockhart on The Good Wife—but never won. It's time for the Academy to let justice be served.

The Good Fight streams exclusively on CBS All Access.

Evil's Mike Colter For Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series

Demonic possessions and hauntings could be a hard sell for some, but Mike Colter somehow grounds this supernatural procedural with his nuanced performance as a priest in training. His talent is on full display in the episode "Room 320," where Colter conveys fear and desperation at the hands of Nurse Plague—all from the confines of a hospital gurney.

Schitt’s Creek For Outstanding Comedy Series

The riches-to-rags cult comedy, from and starring father-son duo Eugene and Dan Levy, single-handedly put Pop TV on the map, but became a pop cultural phenomenon thanks to Schittheads—aka diehard fans such as Jennifer Lawrence and Mariah Carey—discovering it on streaming. Of course, it helps to have improv legends like the elder Levy and Catherine O'Hara among the cast, plus the younger Levy's GIF-worthy catchphrases ("Very uninterested in that opinion") all over social media.

As difficult as series finales can be, dare we say that Schitt's Creek stuck its landing with a hilarious yet heartfelt sendoff?

One Day At A Time's Rita Moreno For Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series

The EGOT-winning living legend deserves an Emmy for Lydia's theatrical entrances alone ("I came out of the womb wearing stilettos!") As the sassy, sexy matriarch of a Cuban-American family, Rita Moreno accents abuelita's every line on One Day At A Time with dramatic flair.

Black Monday's Regina Hall For Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series

Dawn Towner, one of the few female traders in male-dominated 1980s Wall Street, is both one of the guys and in a league of her own. Regina Hall handles rapid-fire repartee and absurdist humor with aplomb, all while rocking the era's outlandish hair and shoulder pads. She truly paints a complete picture: Dawn is unapologetically zany, ambitious, and sensitive.

Sure, we all ♥️ Bob (Billy Gardell) and Abishola (Folake Olowofoyeku), but Chuck Lorre's groundbreaking sitcom centering on a Nigerian family boasts TV's best supporting cast of scene-stealers: Christine Ebersole as Bob's offensively funny mother, Dottie; Vernee Watson as no-nonsense nurse Gloria; Shola Adewusi and Barry Shabaka Henley as Abishola's super-protective auntie and uncle; Matt Jones and Maribeth Monroe as Bob's siblings, and co-creator Gina Yashere as Abishola's blunt bestie, Kemi,

Transcending stereotypical tropes, Bob ♥️ Abishola shines a light on the hardworking immigrant experience.

Mom's Kristen Johnston For Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series

Two-time Emmy winner Kristen Johnston deserves a crack at a third winged trophy as Tammy, an ex-con with a heart of gold. Johnston is a brilliant physical comic who can uppercut you with over-the-top slapstick—but she can also knock you out with an emotional wallop, as evidenced by her scenes with long-lost Aunt Cookie (Kathleen Turner).

The JAs (judicial assistants) call Judge Lola Carmichael a "Lolacoaster" behind her back because "nobody knows where the ride is taking us." The same can be said about Simone Missick, who takes us on a ride every week with her portrayal of Lola: confident, vulnerable, empathetic, and unorthodox.

Star Trek: Picard's Patrick Stewart For Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series

Not any actor can slip so seamlessly back into a beloved character, but Patrick Stewart is not just any actor. His early-25th-century Picard may be older and more weathered than his confident Jean-Luc from Star Trek: The Next Generation. But the way this prolific Shakespearean actor imbues Picard with melancholy and regret, and yet with a glimmer of optimism, is more than enough to make viewers "engage."
