While a bride’s dress is often the focal point of her big day, Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice had something even better—and bigger—in mind. On August 6, the reality TV star walked down the aisle to tie the knot with Luis “Louie” Ruelas balancing a $10,000 masterpiece on her head, locked in with a bejeweled crown.

Stylist Lucia Casazza, who has been styling the RHONJ’s star hair since the show’s third season in 2011, reported that the hairdo itself “cost more than $7,000, not including the nearly $2,500 styling” according to E! News. And like the old saying goes, it takes a village to build a hairdo: In total, the ensemble comprised of “seven bundles of keratin fusion extensions, one pack of clips, more than 1,500 bobby pins, and three pieces of mesh brought together and stitched to create the insert for the volume.”

We’re stunned, to say the least, and calculating all of the things that we could buy with $10,000. But Giudice’s eighth wonder of the world ‘do also inspired us to dig into the architectural marvels of big hair. Just like houses, some are tasteful works of art, some are run down shacks, some are tacky McMansions... and yes, some even deserve their own zip codes.

Stylist Lucia Casazza deserved the Pritzker, architecture’s most prestigious award, for this feat. There’s height, there’s length, there’s volume. You could rent out that hair as a NYC studio apartment, probably for less than some people are currently paying.

When Gwen Shamblin was running the Christian diet program The Weigh Down Workshop (ew), she wasn’t talking about her hair. Shamblin carried a pretty hefty nest on her shoulders, which we’re sure… uh… weighed her down on the daily.

British vocal sensation Amy Winehouse would be unrecognizable without her voluptuous bump. The “Back to Black” singer knew how to wear the color well: From her thick winged eyeliner to her lofty hair, Winehouse wore it bold and loud, just like her.

A fan once asked Parton how long it took to do her hair, to which she responded, “How would I know? I’m never there! And that’s the truth!” She went on to say that she imagines it takes a “good while.” Fair, Dolly. You can’t rush art.

Long gone is the reign of the hair pouf, of which Snooki surely was the queen. The head-turning hairstyle (if your neck could manage it) had a chokehold on the 2000s, and we’re glad to see it go. Bump-it on out of here.

“Hello from the other side” of Adele’s hair bump! If you’ve ever wondered where Adele gets her powerful vocals from, look no further: The woman’s got a spare set of pipes living in her hair.

Obviously this is a royalty free likeness of Mrs. Simpson we were able to get our hands on, but her instantly iconic beehive surpasses any barriers of “legal copyright.”

The rumors are true: You can’t stop the beat nor how good John Travolta looks in a wig. A good use of hairspray indeed.

With her recent passing, everyone’s got Olivia Newton-John on the mind, and what better legacy to leave behind but an iconic perm. I mean, those curls!
