The Best Celebrity Hair Transformations of 2019
Follow along as we track the most noteworthy celebrity and model hair updates of the year.
When:August 20, 2019
Why we love it:Cardi B is a new mom with a new haircut on the VMA red carpet. But this isn't mom hair—it's a feathery, sophisticated pixie cut a la Audrey Hepburn. Color us surprised and obsessed. Cardi B can do no wrong.
When:July 30, 2019
Why we love it: For as much as she changed her beauty look, Kim Kardashian is indecisive when it comes to her hair. The makeup mogul just debited a short, blunt bob over the weekend, only to Tweet a day later that she misses her long hair. Lucky for her, she has a glam squad who can pop extensions—or wigs—in and out of her head at any time (if only we all had that option after a haircut we regret).
When:July 26, 2019
Why we love it:We'll do/wear anything Rihanna tells us too (and based on the success of Fenty and Fenty Beauty, we're not alone). Which is why we're already booking a haircut to copy her new layered '90s-inspired bob. Though she's a fan of wigs and extensions, this appears to be Rihanna's own hair—and we can't get enough.
When:June 18, 2019
Why we love it:Irina Shayk hit up the DSquared show in Milan wearing a redder, shorter, choppier haircut with bangs. But is it the real deal? Her hairstylist Sam McKnight captioned an Instagram of the supermodel, "when there's a wig there's a way." Given McKnight's gift for transformative faux hair pieces—it's safe to assume this new look is temporary.
When:May 21, 2019
Why we love it:Mila Kunis debuted a set of choppy bangs at the Billboard Music Awards last night. We love how the fringe accentuates her big, hazel eyes and adds new life to her chic lob haircut.
When:April 3, 2019
Why we love it:Leighton Meester trusted celebrity colorist to transform her Blair-brown hair into an icy playinum blonde. "With Leighton’s very fairy-like features, I wanted a softer platinum that would complement her features, and not take over," says Friedman. It is possible to go hard with bleach and not totally fry your hair. Friedman used the new protein treatment and masque to keep her hair health intact throughout the six-hour process.
When:February 13, 2019
What:Bangs and Extensions
Why we love it:It seems like only a second ago that Selena Gomez had short, platinum hair. Since the beginning of the year, she dyed it brown again, added extensions, and now just debuted new side-swept bangs at the Coach fall 2019 show. The new fringe is likely the work of clip-in bangs, but Selena's never shy about changing her hair, so only time will tell.
When:February 12, 2019
Why we love it:The supermodel debuted new curtain bangs and soft, face-framing layers that make her hair look totally transformed.
When:February 7, 2019
Why we love it:We've been waiting, hoping, and praying that side bangs would make a comeback. Leave it to none other than SJP to officially welcome them back into fashion. The star debuted a new set of layered side bangs and a bright blonde hue on the streets of NYC yesterday.
When:January 31, 2019
Why we love it:Ridley has had brown hair and red hair since hitting it big in the latest Star Wars trilogy. Last night, she debuted a new warm blonde color, likely for a new role.
When:January 4, 2019
Why we love it:Ciara is starting 2019 off with a brand-new hairstylist. The singer debuted ultra-long, beautiful braids in a series of Instagram images shot by her husband Russell Wilson.
