There's nothing quite like the White House thrusting you into the public eye, but we've seen countless young women make the transition seamlessly. Most recently, we have watched Sasha and Malia Obama growing up in front of the world, but before them came the Bush sisters and Chelsea Clinton.

It can't be easy, but these young women have handled this transition to adulthood with grace, and we've loved watching their styles transform. Chelsea Clinton's 33rd birthday is February 27, and in celebration, we've taken a look back at her hair transformation. From a full head of curls to flowy waves, she's done it all!

Click through the gallery above to see how she's changed her locks over the years.
