GALLERY >> What We Learned From Teen Dramas

Ooooo Mischa Barton’s got her Marissa Cooper glow again! She was spotted at the Blue Label Dinner this week with the golden waves and sheeny tan of her OC years. Grazia HQ cannot believe how many salt sprays and bronzers we used to buy to try and get her California-beach style. Oh how we dreamed of being a girl who could work the ‘I’ve just come from the beach, thrown on this million pound dress and sat down for dinner’ look as perfectly as her.

Click through our gallery to see the beauty tips we learned from teen dramas.

Mischa Barton in The OC

Mischa's character Marissa taught us that if you have a golden glow, you will be perceived as a golden girl. Get a few highlights and a tan and everyone will think you're perfect, even if you're downing vodka in the pool house.

Mila Kunis in That 70's Show

Mila's character Jackie taught us that big hair is appropriate for every situation. Whether you're camping, playing basketball or flirting with Ashton Kutcher, make sure you've set your hair first.

Leighton Meester in Gossip Girl

During her years as Blair, Leighton has taught us that every outfit can be made better with a hairband. Especially a designer one.

Rachel Bilson in The OC

Remember when Anna told Summer to always floss between meals? The advice still stands.

Hilarie Burton in One Tree Hill

Hilarie's character Peyton taught us that you can never over-product curly hair. It looks good when it's a little crispy right?

Shenae Grimes in 90210

When Shenae's character Annie moves to Beverley Hills, she wears jeans and natural makeup. NO. NO. NO. She taught us that if you're new to a school and you want to be popular you're going to need a makeover.

Kristen Bell in Veronica Mars

We learned from Veronica that you can't solve a crime without a good layer of pink lipgloss.

Taylor Momsen in Gossip Girl

Taylor's character Little J taught us that the smokier the eye, the higher you sit on the Met steps. The same goes for increasing hair extension length.

Katie Holmes in Dawsons Creek

Tomboy Joey revealed that all you need to get a man is a slick of berry lipstick because grown-ups wear lipstick obvs.

Jessica Stroup in 90210

Jessica's character Erin taught us that we should never be afraid of a dramatic haircut. Chopping off your hair can equal instant popularity.

Sophia Bush in One Tree Hill

Sophia's character Brooke taught us that the darker your hair the darker your mood. Keep your hair dark if you're planning a wild child period.
