Everyone knows that sometimes you just need a major beauty change and if you ask us there's no better way than by switching up your hairstyle. Whether it's a color change, the pixie cut you thought you'd never try, or just a quick trim, hair transformations always have a way of feeling like a total makeover. For proof, look no further than some of your favorite stars, including Lady Gaga, Charlize Theron, and Tiffany Haddish (to name just a few) who've hit up the salon chair. We predict that 2019 will continue to bring its fair share of high-voltage color changes, new blunt bobs, and even Rapunzel-like lengths from celebs. Ahead, check out some of the greatest celeb hair transformations so far this year and prepare to be inspired to make your next big appointment.
Kim Kardashian West just debuted decidedly lighter strands for summer with the help of her go-to hairstylist, Chris Appleton. Appleton took to Instagram this week to show off the reality star's fresh new look, captioning the post, "Who’s into this Light frosted brown for summer?" Kim K. now has a chocolate-y brown hue with a subtle sheen to it. In fact, it almost looks bronze at certain angles, and yes, raises hands we're very much into it.
To celebrate the season three premiere of Stranger Things, Millie Bobby Brown walked the red carpet in a pouf of a pink gown tempered by an elegant low ponytail. But as hairstylist Bridget Brager shared on Instagram, the look is business in the front, party in the back. Hidden behind that simple slick is a waistlength ponytail fit for Rapunzel. It's all in the (glamorous) details.
Jada Pinkett Smith has been rocking a cropped cut as her signature style for quite some time, but she decided to change things up for a new season. "Sun kissed vibez for the summer flex " she wrote in the caption of an Instagram photo introducing her followers to her incredible new blonde braids, which appear to extend far past her shoulders — though she's also probably referring to how her skin has an enviably golden glow, too.
Just days after she hit the BET Awards red carpet with a watered down bob, Ciara turned up in Brooklyn at the opening of WorldPride 2019 festivities in waves that reached down to her waist. Longtime stylist and wigmaker César Ramirêz created the look, and Ciara added a beret on top to turn the outfit into a showstopper. The woman really makes an argument for wigs, doesn't she?
Alison Brie is back to brunette. After a brief love affair with bleach, the actress has turned back to her dark roots — with a twist. She's sporting a soft brown shade with golden blonde highlights fo ran overall look that manages to be just as beachy as her all-over blonde. Brie also added to the cut's retro effect with long, straight-across bangs and a 70's-style, curled-in blowout.
Fifteen years after "Lizzie McGuire" went off the air, Hilary Duff is back to her teenage haircut. Duff trimmed her highlighted blonde hair and added a set of wispy, Disney-inspired bangs. Best of all, she even confirmed that Lizzie was her haircut inspiration. "I kind of have been itching for my Lizzie McGuire bangs for awhile," she told Refinery29. Mission accomplished.
Dua Lipa tucked her punky dark bob underneath a dark green wig; we don't know exactly why, but we're here for it. The singer shared an Instagram post in which she poses (in a towel, no less) while a stylist looks to be pinning down the wig. It's got straight-across bangs and a length slightly longer than her regular choppy, above-the-shoulder cut. Whatever the reason for the change-up, we have a feeling Dua's about to make herself one damn good summer memory.
Minka Kelly apparently celebrated her birthday by kicking off the last year of her 30s with a whole new look. The actor has posted a few photos on Instagram suggesting she took the platinum plunge and bleached her signature rich, brown hair a stunning, super-light shade of blonde. Although none of the captions directly address the change, friends and fans are commenting with their whole-hearted approval, comparing her to everyone from Gwen Stefani to Daenerys Targaryen.
Ciara just became the latest celebrity to chop her hair above the shoulder. For the 2019 BET Awards, she wore an asymmetrical, blunt bob, styled to look wet. Stylist Cesar Ramirez chose a look with a "tough cool-girl edge," he explained in a statement. "I wanted a length that would sit perfectly just below the chin and compliment the neckline." But before you get too attached to the new style, he also revealed that the bob was a wig, which means we'll be back to Ciara's regularly scheduled waist-length ponytails and extra-long locs shortly.
Antoni Porowski may be Queer Eye’s resident food expert, but it appears he knows his way around a bottle of bleach, too. The TV personality shared his new surfer-dude look on Instagram, where he posed alongside friend and actor Reema Sampat. “Paris was rough but we made it back,” he wrote in the caption, not addressing the fact that he looks totally different. His fans left plenty of the comments about the new look, reacting with everything from fawning to concern. We can’t help but wonder, though: Did he consult costar and hairstylist Jonathan Van Ness before he lightened up?
Every time Kerry Washington pivots to short hair, it's an instant inspiration. Most recently, she stepped out in Cannes with a wavy, above-the-shoulder chop. We love that she's opting for texture instead of a sleek, flatironed bob style — and according ostylist Rio Sreedharan, the texture in her pop-art dress inspired him to find movement in her hair.
We don't think we've seen a hairstyle or color on Zendaya we didn't like. This time, the actress revealed a deep red hair color at the Spider-man: Far From Home photocall at the Tower of London. The new style may be an homage to Spider-man character Mary Jane "MJ" Watson, possibly hinting that Zendaya's character will be Peter's love interest — or maybe she just wanted a bold change. All we know is that she is absolutely slaying this red hair.
Lea Michele's officially switched it up — just in time for summer. The actress traded in her chest-length strands for something just a touch shorter — hair that falls just below her armpits. Hairstylist Laura Polko gave Michele that gorgeous, lived-in texture with the help of Sexy Hair's latest texture collection.
Gabrielle Union has spent the last few months wearing some of the most gorgeous, creative, long ponytails we've ever seen, but with summer starting, she was inspired to switch up her natural style. "New cut, who dis?" she wrote on Instagram alongside several slides showing her choppy new shag created by Larry Sims. It reaches to the jawline with shorter, side-swept, voluminous bangs — but that doesn't mean Union is done with long looks. She's already been seen with an extension-composed updo, proving short hair can have a huge range when you have access to incredible stylists.
Zendaya celebrated the premiere of her new HBO show "Euphorics" with a fresh new hairstyle — a brand-new set of bangs, cut in a shaggy, heart-shaped style. With the rest of her hair pulled up into a high ponytail, the cute fringe was free to be the star of the show. Unfortunately, their appearance was one-night-only. Zendaya was back to her bang-free self a few days later, but we'll always have the inspiration photos to remember them by.
Kaia Gerber just unveiled a sleek new short haircut for summer 2019, and we couldn't be more obsessed. The 17-year-old supermodel took to Instagram for her big reveal, captioning the post, "the drama cut by @guidopalau @sandyhullett." Previously, her dark strands had been down to her shoulders in a no-frills style, but now she's sporting a full-blown bob and it's a refreshing departure from her signature look. Will Gerber keep her short hair around for the whole summer? We'll just have to wait and see.
Until recently, model Barbara Palvin had been sporting a sleek, long bob and no bangs. But for this year's CDFA Awards, she stepped out with a new wow-worthy, '70s-esque style that included eyebrow-grazing fringe and extensions. Turns out hairstylist Owen Gould is the genius behind the star's newfound look, as he posted a shot of Palvin after the event with the caption, Babs for last nights #CDFA Awards." While our estimated guess would be that the fringe is faux, we'll just have to wait and see to be sure.
While a number of celebrities are kicking off summer with a chin-length bob, Reese Witherspoon went for a slightly less dramatic — but still significant— change. Stylist Lona Vigi transformed Witherspoon's long waves into a straighter, layered lob, and from the looks of the Boomerang she posted on Instagram, it's got lots of movement. It's a perfect length for summer, lifting weight off her shoulders (literally) while still being long enough to pull back into a ponytail.
Newly dirty blonde Bella Hadid stepped out for the CFDA gala wearing a fierce, slicked-back, super curly ponytail. While we'd bet that Hadid's look was achieved with the help of extensions, this five-star style is a reminder to test out different hair textures. Hadid took a risk with curls and it seriously paid off.
As Bridget Brager, January Jones's hairstylist writes, "Welp, we finally did it!" Jones has been vocal about itching for a bob haircut for some time and she finally got up the nerve for this above-the-shoulder chop. "We’ve been waiting for her (old) bangs to grow long enough to give that perfect blunt bob, middle part look. Patience," explains Brager. "I took out a lot of weight out of her hair (weight = width of hair) without creating layers." The lightweight cut is perfectly on trend — just ask Katy Perry and Charlize Theron, who have also recently made the jump. It may have been a long time coming, but this cut was worth the wait.
Hilary Duff is a master of making subtle hair changes that create a major impact. This time around, she decided to get bangs for summer — not always considered the wisest idea during the sweatiest time of year, but with the help of Nine Zero One salon's Nikki Lee, Duff proved it can totally work. "Hilary’s been toying around with the idea of bangs for a few weeks. I just ignored her hoping she would forget about them," the stylist joked. "But today we just went for it, and we’re so glad we did! Instead of doing a full-on bang we opted for more of a curtain bang that sweeps to both sides. The vibe is very '70s and a perfect way to switch up her look."
The actress's collarbone-length wavy hair got an update and we've gotta admit — we love it. James took to Instagram to show off her new hair, a cut and color by John MacPherson, which has her rocking a chin-length bob. It was styled straight and pushed behind her ears with the help of Ben Skervin.
Although several guests at the Kylie Skin launch party — like Khloé Kardashian and Nikita Dragun — wore pink hair for the event, Kylie Jenner herself decided to wait to match her hair to her new products for a much more special occasion: picking up some Doritos and cold meds at the gas station. The pastel look is a departure from the nearly jet-black color she's been seen in recently, though not a surprise since she loves trying colorful looks like the purple wig she wore to the Met Gala. And it appears that this, too, is a wig and not a dye job — just hours after Jenner posted the pink pic on Instagram, she posted another photo in which she was playing in a pool with daughter Stormi with her dark hair again, this time in what looks like a lob-length ponytail.
Geri Horner (née Halliwell) is clearly fully committed to the nostalgia factor of the upcoming Spice Girls reunion tour because she made a triumphant return to the red hair so closely associated with her original girl-group look. She posted two L'Oréal-sponsored photos on Instagram declaring "Ginger is back!" and sharing that she used the Preference shade Mango 74. Perhaps we should start calling her Mango Spice?
Whenever Taylor Swift debuts a new hair color, fans know it's time to start looking for clues. In the lead-up to her new single "Me," she dyed her hair strategically pink to match with her music video. Now, eagle-eyed fans have noted her new, periwinkle-blue tips. Whether or not the blue hair means new music, it's definitely an easy way to try out a bold hair color before taking the rainbow plunge. Now, if we could only get this girl in a full-color wig.
With her show "Jane the Virgin" about to end and a brand-new marriage to celebrate, 'tis a season of change for actor Gina Rodriguez — and what better way to celebrate than with new hair? Stylist Anh Co Tran and colorist Grace Zip transformed Rodriguez's signature untouched brunette with a light and beachy balayage. The new cut features face-framing layers, which Zip heightens even more with targeted warm blonde highlights.
Katy Perry's hair is only about three inches long at the moment, but from her latest look, you'd never be able to tell. For the finale of "American Idol," hairstylist Chris Appleton hid Perry's pixie under a shoulder-length, white-blonde wig. The platinum is a few shades lighter and cooler than her current blonde, but Perry looks right at home in the Old Hollywood glam style, complete with soft, movie star waves.
Just hours before the series finale of Game of Thrones, Maisie Williams posted a photo to Instagram showing that she was no longer sporting that incredible purple shade she's been wearing since switching from pink. For now, at least, Williams seems to be stepping away from pastels and vivids to try a more natural color — golden blonde — at least for the new M+RC Noir campaign she's starring in.
She bangs — sorry, had to do it. Jessica Chastain updated her lob with a set of bangs that she wore with some tousled texture to an event for X-Men: Dark Phoenix in Mexico City. She quickly switched it up the next day to a straighter style (as you see here) to show the versatility of her fringe.
The Stranger Things actress has had a lob for a while and has been wearing it well. Of course, we're always here for a new look and clearly so is Brown, who turned out to a presser for Godzilla: King of the Monsters in Beijing with her hair pulled into a high pony with a blonde ombré. Her hairstylist Adir Abergel hooked her up with some gorgeous extensions, which he also styled loose and stick-straight for another Godzillapress appearance in Beijing.
Queen Bey has been loving the super-long, textured, blonde look lately, the style popping up all across the world on last year's On the Run II Tour. But she apparently decided to buck the trend of going lighter for summer because she was seen recently with husband Jay-Z at the NBA's Western Conference Semifinals with a sultry new shade. The (less) long look featured a rich brown contrasted with generous blonde highlights and styled in smooth waves. And, of course, like literally every hairstyle Beyoncé has worn, it looks amazing on her.
Sometime between the Met Gala and the after party, Gemma Chan's hair went from brown to pink. Stylist Owen Gould is responsible for the look, as well as for Chan's hair under her fabulous Met Gala headpiece, but he's kept mum on how exactly this color transformation happened so quickly. Our best guess is that he used temporary color spray to achieve the look, which just so happens to be perfectly on trend. Whether the change is permanent or just one evening of rainbow fun, Chan has now joined the pink hair ranks of Taylor Swift, Cardi B, and more.
Ariel Winter has been known to sport the occasional wig when she's not on the set of Modern Family, but it looks like her latest hair-color switch is the real deal. She visited colorist Tabitha Dueñas at celeb-frequented salon Nine Zero One, where they lifted her nearly black hair to this gorgeous, natural-looking red. And with her first name and this new look, it's impossible not to compare Winter to The Little Mermaid: "part of yourrrrrr worrrrrld," she wrote in an Instagram caption, alongside mermaid emojis.
If you thought Anne Hathaway's return to her signature brunette shade meant she wouldn't be changing up her hair for a while, think again. Stylist Adir Abergel shared a gorgeous black-and-white photo of Hathaway on April 28 with the caption, "New cut. New vibes," referring to her shoulder-length shag — a shorter, more layered, less polished look for the Oscar winner.
It's official: Rachel Brosnahan no longer resembles her rich-brunette character on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. The 28-year-old actress decided to swap her dark strands for a honey "bronde" hue earlier this month and has now gone an even brighter and blonder shade with the help of her colorist, Lisa Haron. Haron shared an adorable shot of the star's new look on Instagram, writing, "Fun blonde moments with @rachelbrosnahan" As for how long she'll stay blonde, only time will tell, but for now it's a super-fun and refreshing departure from her former look.
Emma Roberts was all smiles when she posted a photo of her new hair color and style — what she calls "sunrise blonde and whisper waves" — on Instagram. It's a start contrast to the chocolate-brown, sleek, straight, shoulder-length look she'd been wearing recently, but duty calls. “Emma needed to go light again for an upcoming project she’s working on," explains Nikki Lee, cofounder of Nine Zero One salon. "Instead of doing the typical bright blonde, we went for a 'boho sunrise' tone —something that felt a bit more undone and effortless. With the help of Joico Blonde Life lightener and my go-to Olaplex, I was able to keep her hair in great condition. Riawna and I tag-teamed Great Lengths extensions to add length and volume."
Since 1996, Judith Sheindlin's short, feathered hairstyle has been as much as part of her Judge Judy uniform as her lace-collar black robe. But recently, social media has been buzzing with fans who are pleasantly surprised that the 76-year-old TV magistrate has debuted a new look. Sheindlin has apparently grown out her hair a bit and has been wearing it in a low ponytail, her highlighted bangs brushed back off her forehead. "I think it looks great," one Twitter user wrote. "Very RBG!"
Taylor Swift appears to be preparing for some sort of major release. As eagle-eyed fans have noted, the singer recently changed the color palette of her Instagram feedto reflect an aesthetic that includes a lot of pink with a helping of sparkle. Fans speculate that she's dropping either new music or a clothing line soon — either way, she's gotten pink hair to match the mood. Swift added a few inches of the hue from her shoulder to her ends, which gives her kind of a punky vibe, strangely in contrast to her kittens-and-hearts-filled IG feed.
Katy Perry switches up her hair more than most celebrities, which is saying a lot. So between her frequent, often vivid color changes and her recent penchant for platinum pixie cuts, it was actually quite surprising to see the singer with long, golden-blonde waves. Both she and stylist Chris Appleton posted a photo of the new look to Instagram, and while neither said so it’s very likely Perry’s wearing a wig. (She’s recently worn wigs in both a blonde bob style and a pink, shoulder-length look.) But it looks particularly realistic, thanks in part to warm blonde being the color she was born with.
For years, Taylor Schilling has kept her hair in a medium-length lob style. Thanks to stylist Ryan Trygstad, she's made the jump to a chin-length bob — and found the style she was born to wear. She's already worn the clearly versatile look both tousledand slicked back and straight. Schilling's new look is proof that just a few inches really can make a major difference.
Frequent photo shoots call for Emily Ratajkowski to regularly change up her usually long, brown hair, but rarely this dramatically. Makeup artist Hung Vanngo posted several photos of Ratajkowski on the set of a project to show off not only his stunning work — that sparkly eye! — but also the model's pretty new pastel pink hair. The brown roots peeking through at the part make it seem like she took the color plunge, bleaching and dyeing her hair; but while stylist Dimitri Giannetos didn't reveal the details in his Instagram posts, we suspect it may be a very convincing wig.
Alison Brie has been a brunette for years, but all it took was a request from someone special to make a major switch. "When your husband asks you to 'go blonde' for a role... you say yes," she wrote on Instagram, referring to her actor/director spouse Dave Franco. She also tagged colorist Clariss Anya Rubenstein, who gave Brie her sandy new shade, full of gorgeous variations that work perfectly with her wavy lob.
After months of growing out her hair and wearing extensions, Demi Lovato decided it was time for a change and cut off a cool five inches. She's now rocking a slightly angular, blunt, long bob that was cut by hairstylist Amber Maynard Bolt of Nine Zero One Salon. The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer took to her Instagram Stories on April 11 to show off her new short strands, captioning the post, "new hair, who dis?" Going into a new season it's always fun to switch up your hair, so we can definitely see why Lovato wanted a fresh look. Naturally, we're obsessed.
Ava Phillippe and her brand-new rainbow hair just signaled the official arrival of festival season. Reese Witherspoon's 19-year-old daughter slash mini me ditched her signature blonde for a veritable ROYGBIV of fluorescent highlights. With Coachella due to start next week, it's the perfect time to try that non-traditional color you've been dreaming about — or follow Phillipe's lead and wear them all at once. There's no word on whether this is a permanent change or the work of some artfully deployed temporary color spray. Either way, Phillipe is stepping out from her mother's shadow and coming in bright.
Bella Hadid arrived at Marc Jacobs's wedding reception alongside sister Gigi, and while both looked predictably chic, Bella broke from her usual forehead-haring hairstyles and had bangs in a warm, lighter shade of brown. The fringe varied in length, with some shorter pieces toward the middle and significantly longer strands framing her face as her long, straight hair was pulled half-up.
Halsey has spent most of 2019 playing around with shades of red and pink hair — sometimes her own short style, and sometimes lengthened with extensions or wigs. But to kick off April, she decided to "paint it black," according to an Instagram post. Nearly her natural color, it's hard to tell if she's wearing extensions or if her cropped cut has grown out enough for her to pull it back in a bun, but either way it's just further proof that the singer looks adorable in any traditional or nontraditional hair color.
Rachel Brosnahan's rich, deep brunette isn't just her signature hair color — it's her best-known character Mrs. Maisel's signature hair color, too. But the award-winning actor is clearly taking a break from the dark side for a little while with a light new look she debuted at the opening night of a Broadway play: an almost-strawberry shade of soft, buttery blonde.
It looks like Hilary Duff might have tired of the intensive upkeep that comes with platinum hair, but she's definitely not ready to retire from being a blonde. The actor visited Nikki Lee at Nine Zero One salon to update her color for spring. "After going 'winter white,' we decided to turn Hilary's color into 'sunlight,'" Lee says of the warmer shade. "She’s now a slightly rooted golden blonde with a little extra length added for fun."
Typically one to wear his naturally brown hair a bit longer on top with an undercut, Channing Tatum recently debuted a platinum-blonde buzz cut on his Instagram Stories. But even though he'd already gone through with the dramatic hair makeover, he seemed a bit unsure of it, asking his followers in a poll, "Bad idea?" Based on the results, it seems most fans are looking forward to when he grows it out.
Jada Pinkett Smith just went full-on blonde, folks. The Red Table host has dabbled with the hue before in the form of highlights, but this is the first time we're seeing her rock a truly light overall blonde color; naturally, we're 100 percent obsessed. "When that Sandy blonde drip you use to rock in the 90's still goes hard✨," she wrote in the caption of her grand Instagram reveal, which is racking up likes by the second. Whether or not it's a temporary move, it's refreshing nonetheless to see Smith spice things up and try something fresh and new.
Either Kate Hudson knows the secret to super-fast hair growth, or she was hooked up with some especially excellent extensions to add length to her bob. "I got hair!" she wrote in the caption of an Instagram photo showing her past-the-shoulders, middle-parted style, which was created by stylist Gregory Russell. And look closely — are those pastel-pink highlights worked in among the blonde waves? So pretty.
Shay Mitchell is practically synonymous with long, dark-brown hair, but she was apparently craving a huge change before attending the iHeartRadio Music Awards. Looking almost unrecognizable, she walked the red carpet with a beachy-textured, platinum-blonde lob that featured a deep side part and natural-looking roots. But it turns out it wasn't natural at all. "Freaking out my grandma every time I wear a different wig to an event will never get old," she wrote on Instagram. And least now Mitchell — and her grandma — can feel confident that she'd look incredible if she ever takes the bleach leap.
Over the last year, Lucy Hale has switched back and forth between dark and light hair, from chocolate brown to golden blonde and sometimes a highlighted combination of the two. And now, after a few months of her lightest look, Hale has gone the darkest and most solid shade of brunette we've seen on her in a long time. On Instagram, she joked about the latest look created by her go-to stylist, Kristin Ess: "diary of a girl who changes her hair a lot..." — but can you blame her? She looks incredible in every color.
From Charlize Theron to Rumer Willis to, now, Kristen Bell, a rainbow of sleek bobs are about to hit the Hollywood red carpets. Bell switched out her signature wavy, medium-length hair for a smoother cut that lands just above her shoulder. "Your mom got a hair cut and she is feeling it," Bell wrote on Instagram. Stylist Jenny Cho even shared a sped-up transformation video of the cut in action. Feel free to DM it to your stylist immediately.
Katherine Langford has spent the last year or so having a lot of fun with different colors, from blonde to dip-dyed cranberry to most recently a rich auburn. For her latest shade switch, however, the Aussie actor might have been inspired by other celebrities who've recently been bitten by the brunette bug like Charlize Theron and Emilia Clarke. "Brunette is back" she wrote on Instagram — but for how long, we'll just have to wait and see.
Charlize Theron has gone over to the dark side, folks. At the 2019 Oscars, the actress debuted a shorter, darker style courtesy of hairstylists Adir Abergel and Tracey Cunningham. The duo worked together to give her strands a shiny, healthy, dark-brown color and blunt ends. "Hair is your greatest accessory! Changing your hair is best way to transform yourself. And, why not? This week we changed @charlizeafrica look. We changed her color earlier this week and this morning we chopped off her hair," Abergel wrote on Instagram.
Tiffany Haddish switches up her hairstyle with regularity, but one thing has remained consistent: She lets her lovely forehead show. That's been true even when she's tried bangs in the past, choosing the side-swept look. But at a recent pre-Oscars event, Haddish tried full-on fringe, wearing straight, long bangs that covered her brows and reached a bit longer on either side.
Lana Condor is serving hair inspiration with her new blunt, slightly-textured bangs. She stepped out (to sit front row, natch) for Prabal Gurung's fall 2019 show at NYFW with the new fringe, styled by hairstylist Matt Fugate. But before you get too excited about the hair change, it's only temporary. Fugate revealed on Instagram that the bangs are actually clip-ins courtesy of celeb-favorite extensions supplier The Hair Shop. The bangs may not be permanent, but maybe Condor might want to consider the full transformation.
Over the past few years, Allison Williams has volleyed between her natural medium-brown shade of brunette and various shades of blonde, looking incredible all the while. And although she apparently had intended to stay brunette, a new acting gig had other plans for her. "I swore I wouldn’t do this to my hair again ... but new movie, new hair," Williams wrote in a caption on Instagram that accompanied a photo of her new golden, beachy look. "Back to blonde and back to work."
After spending most of 2018 as a blonde bombshell, Rumer Willis kicked off 2019 with a major change. The singer/actress showed off her fresh new cut and dark-brown color on the red carpet at the Screen Actor's Guild awards. Her hair was styled simply — sleek, with a slight sheen, and with one side tucked behind her ear.
The model and activist was spied on a L'Oréal Paris set rocking a brand-new hue. Gone is Lawrence's signature blonde shade: The 28-year-old is all about gray. She's also apparently all about the bottom line because, as it turns out, the dye is straight from a drugstore. It's the £7 ($9) L'Oréal Paris Colorista in silver gray and it looks stunning on her.
13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford is swapping hair colors along with time zones. She's home in Australia, and recently visited Perth-based salon Circles of Hair for a major shift from brunette to a head-turning copper. Her stylists foiled in the copper highlights, making Langford's color look super bright. We think it suits her beautifully.
Although Ruby Rose typically keeps her short hair somewhere in the brunette spectrum, she kicked off 2019 in her homeland of Australia as a platinum blonde. But just before leaving to head back to the U.S., Rose posted a photo of her latest color update: a silvery shade of pastel blue. "Major mood as I say goodbye for another year to all my friends and family back home," she captioned the Instagram photo. She may feel as blue as her hair, but hopefully knowing how gorgeous it looks will cheer her up a bit.
We're used to seeing Transformers actress Megan Fox with her signature long brown hair, so we did a double take when we peeped this new short blonde style. She was spotted on the set of her upcoming movie, Jangsari 9.15, in which she plays Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Marguerite Higgins. It's most likely a really good wig, and then we'll be back to seeing her in all her brunette glory.
Chaeyoung, a member of beloved Korean girl group Twice, posted a selfie on Instagram after debuting a brand-new blonde lob at the 2019 Seoul Music Awards. In the caption, she apologized to fans for always shocking them, and we have to admit, we were surprised by the hair transformation, too. Chaeyoung has kept her hair long for several years as she's grown out her bob. Now that she's back to a shorter look, we're excited to see which hair colors she experiments with.
Selma Blair just went to the short side. The 46-year-old actress cut off her long strands, swapping them for a crisp, new, chin-grazing bob done by Chris McMillan. Blair posted her look on Instagram, writing, "'A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life' — Coco Chanel." She also shared a cute slow-motion clip of McMillan blowing out her hair.
Lady Gaga's first major hair transformation of 2019 made its debut at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards. The multi-hyphenate colored her previously platinum hair a soft sky blue, with more intense splashes of the color throughout. Didn't we tell you faded pastels would be everywhere in 2019? And they're even better when you match your dress to them.
Before attending a Golden Globes after-party, actress Rowan Blanchard announced on her Instagram Story that she'd chopped off all her hair, which had been a shoulder-grazing lob. On the red carpet, she officially showed off her new, Mia Farrow–esque choppy pixie cut.
Isla Fisher's red hair may be one of her most famous features, but she's starting off the year with a bold change. She traded her signature auburn for a bright, rooty blonde with lots of highlights. Despite the major shade switch, Fisher kept her hairstyle the same — long and straight with plenty of face-framing layers that are amplified by the new light pieces in front. As she wrote on Instagram, "Go blonde in ‘19 or go home."
