Last year, a lot of big changes went down. And what better way to shake off that shake-up but with a good ol’ makeover? Celebrities definitely took that route, and a lot of long-haired beauties cut off their coveted locks. Who pulled their makeover off the best?
There were all passing looks, but Rihanna tried out a dramatic faux lock look, and bright blue hair! She looked like a luminescent Bajan mermaid, and the faux loc look just amped up her bad girl vibes, if that’s not even possible.
2. Selena Gomez
Forget those long Disney layers – Selena 2.0 is way more fierce with this cosmopolitan lob in straight out of bed, bleach blond. She looks like she belongs on the cover of Nylon, doesn’t she? Was she inspired by the Biebs?
3. Cara Delevingne
Cara swapped out her beachy, dirty blonde look for a much shorter pixie look. While she initially cut it short for a role, we think that this choppy brown look fits wildchild Cara’s authentic self much better. If you have the face to pull it off, why not?
4. Zayn Malik
Everyone loves this broody ex-boy bander for his bushy eyebrows and mussed up hair that always seems to get in those puppy eyes. Well, Zayn decided he was sick of his boyish looks and decided to shave it all off (everything but his facial hair, that is.)
5. Kristen Stewart
You won’t find Kristen on social media, just a bunch of fan pages. This year was all about social media detox, and a hair detox apparently! The star has come more into her sexuality and with it, a glorious tomboy style and frosty, super short cut arrived, turning the actress into editorial material.
Solange’s hair is always iconic and statement making. But the iconic red braids that she chose for 2018 had everyone screaming a collective “yassssss!” On IG she rocks it with al red looks which would be a fashion crime on anyone else, but revolutionary on the more alternative Knowles sister.
7. Zoe Kravitz
Zoe Kravitz is a vision with her long braids and pouty lips. We always look at her and get a reminder of how similar she looks to mother Lisa Bonet. Maybe that’s why she decided to cut it all off, swapping to a pixie cut which looked sharp with her simple, strapless Golden Globe gown. Black Audrey Hepburn much?
8. Nina Dobrev
This Vampire Diaries babe is known for being conventionally pretty, with her long brown waves. Well, she’s not conventional with her new, edgy lob cut! This look makes Nina’s appearance a bit more mature and grown up – we’re loving this for the new chapter.
9. Katie Perry
We all know Katie for her long, dark lustrous locks. Yeah, she always mixes it up with outrageous shapes and colors, but she always goes back to those predictable dark, wavy locks. Not this time! She’s now opting for a short, dark and bleached statement a la Miley Cyrus.
10. Kate Hudson
Another person joining the short hair club was Cali yoga hippie Kate Hudson who went the extra mile and just cut off all of her hair, buzz-cut style. Luckily, Kate has the stunning face and body to pull of this buzz, looking like an angelic G.I. Jane.
