Saved by the Rachel
After five years as stereotypical head cheerleader Kelly Kapowski on
Saved by the Bell, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen left the Bayside Tigers behind in 1994 and also ditched the latter half of her hyphenated name and her long, flowing brunette locks. Seemingly inspired by TV's hottest actress that year, Thiessen highlighted her hair, accurately emulating "The Rachel," and signed up for a more grownup role as well on
Beverly Hills, 90210. Arguably anything would have been better than the mountain of teased hair covering her forehead that Kelly called "bangs."
