Judith Light: Karen Wolek, 'One Life To Live' 1977-83

Long before Judith Light was a drama queen on "Ugly Betty," she played gold-digger Karen Wolek, who married her cousin, became a "housewife prostitute" and subsequently killed her pimp -- your average story arc in soap-opera land. Moreover, she did this while wearing hair that was often overly shellacked, coiffed, highlighted and bleached to straw. But here, arriving at 2007's Daytime Emmys, she wears sexy, touchable disco hair done right. Break out your hot curlers -- this look goes well with the 1970s vibe that's back in vogue.
