We can't be the only ones who saw Solange on the cover of When I Get Home and thought, I want her hair. The soft waves falling down her back ignited our celebrity hair envy, and it wasn't the first time. For years, we've lusted after all kinds of styles, from floor-grazing braids to mid-length lobs.
