Selena Gomez Is Channeling Winona Ryder With Her Latest Haircut
A really good hair makeover is right up there with finding the perfect red lipstick or picking out your signature scent. And when celebrities completely transform themselves with a blunt bob, mermaid-like extensions, or a Technicolor dye job, it often inspires us to try something new ourselves.
Since A-listers are constantly modifying their looks for new roles, new albums, or “new you” lifestyles, it can be hard to keep up with the hair trends of Hollywood. That’s why we have taken it upon ourselves to update you on their latest and greatest hair transformations.
Simply scroll down to see the best celebrity hairstyles of the year, from Amandla Stenberg’s super-cool buzz cut to Nina Dobrev’s edgy new lob. And who knows? You might just be inspired to chop off your long locks or rock a daring new hair color.

There’s no place like Coachella to try out a bold new ’do—even if, as in Ashley Benson’s case, it appears to be temporary. (Might we suggest making the hot pink hue a full-time thing?)

Beyoncé knows how to rock a braided 'do, and her latest plaits are no exception. From her precise side part to the strategically placed beads, we are absolutely in love with this new look on the mother-to-be.

It’s just a little shorter and a little darker, but those subtle changes made for the perfect refresh to Lucy Hale’s choppy bob—not to mention we’re loving the ’90s reference.

Just a couple weeks after debuting a new overgrown pixie, Katy Perry took her short cut even shorter: She now shares the same platinum buzz that Kristen Stewart and Zoë Kravitz have recently embraced.

After sporting long braids for some time, perennial cool girl Zoë Kravitz just took to Instagram to document a drastic pixie cut. The verdict: So good.

Kim Kardashian ditched her long (long, long) extensions for a choppy bob—a decision we can definitely get behind.

After sticking with Donatella Versace–blond for some time, Gaga has officially gone back to her darker roots.

Fire up your straighteners: Jennifer Lopez’s sleek new ’do is the antidote to the (slightly tired) wavy lob.

Get ready: We have a feeling this was the haircut heard round the world and that many a beauty badass will soon follow Kristen Stewart’s lead. Considering the ’90s punk-rock vibe and complete lack of daily maintenance, we might also be convinced.

Fun fact: Hairstylist Chris McMillan has apparently wanted to chop Katy Perry’s hair into a pixie “since the day they met.” Perry finally obliged yesterday, and we’re seriously loving the final result.

Models often undergo many hair changes during fashion month, but they’re rarely permanent—except in the case of Bella Hadid, who traded her long, espresso-hued locks for a shorter, darker crop. We’re seriously loving the effortlessness of the cut, not to mention the way the brown-black hue sets off her creamy skin and striking eyes.

The Game of Thrones star just debuted a brand-new cut and color.

Kylie Jenner always tends to embrace her chameleonic ways during fashion week in particular, but three hair changes in three days might be a new record. The latest: blorange, aka the It pastel color to try this year.

Olivia Wilde clearly got the memo that rooty blond has never been cooler. (And her new chop certainly suits her too.)

Hello, blond! Model Irina Shayk traded her signature dark locks for a much lighter hue, and we’re seriously feeling the new look.

It is less than a month into 2017, and Kylie has already changed her ’do twice. While Jenner usually favors long locks and colored wigs, she is now sporting an edgy bob with what looks to be her natural tresses.

Did you know Katy Perry is naturally a blonde? The singer returned to her roots this week, saying goodbye to years of raven-black hair.

New year, same hair chameleon. Jenner didn’t make it a full two weeks without switching up her locks—this time returning to the platinum shade she stuck with for several weeks last fall. (Whether it’s for real or a very well-placed wig remains to be seen.)
Thinking of taking your own strands to a similar shade? Just keep in mind that maintenance is key. Try Davines Alchemic Silver Shampoo ($26) to prevent brassiness.

Emily Ratajkowski swapped her signature shoulder-length tresses for a textured faux bob at the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards.
