Let these A-lister looks inspire your next makeover
Beauty Crew Digital Content Editor / July 06 2020
In the world of celebrities, hair makeovers seem to take place almost constantly. And, 2020 has already seen loads of A-lister haircuts, extensions and colours changes happen.
Whether you're simply wanting to check in your favourite A-listers' latest looks or get some fresh hair inspo for yourself...
Here are the best celebrity hair transformations of 2020.
Ariel Winter aptly captioned the reveal of her platinum blonde hair transformation: “Winter Is Coming!!!!!!!!!!!”. The Modern Family star appears to have looked to Game Of Thrones for inspiration, taking her copper waves to a brilliant shade of white that is startlingly similar to Khaleesi aka the ‘Mother of Dragons’. Dracarys.
Following sister Kim’s lead, Kylie hit up hairstylist Chris Appleton to take her honey blonde ombre to a deliciously warm shade of light chocolate brown. No doubt we’ll continue to see Kylie don a plethora of crazily coloured wigs but it’s refreshing to see her touting a more natural look - she’s still sticking to her glam roots though, choosing to style her hair in perfectly coiffed old Hollywood curls.
It appears the E-Girl hair trend has finally hit the Kardashian-West house, with Kim adopting fiery red locks in an ode to the TikTok trend (and no – it’s not a wig!). Hairstylist Chris Appleton is the genius behind Kim’s new look, making us reminisce on the punk phase Kim had in the ‘90s – red streaks and all. We love a throwback moment.
Kaia Gerber may have been laying low with a broken arm during quarantine, but it appears the model has found a way to keep herself busy, by steadily taking her naturally brunette hair to this stunning shade of platinum blonde. Kudos to Kaia for pulling this off, blonde hair is not for the faint of heart.
Millie Bobby Brown
Millie’s brunette bob has evolved into California girl honey blonde extensions – seriously, what hairstyle can’t this girl pull off? The Stranger Things star chose to keep her dark roots for a more natural ombre look with face-framing highlights.
Lily Allen has decided to embrace her greys during quarantine and we LOVE it! She has somehow managed to achieve a perfect grey-to-black ombre look, while leaving her fringe long to frame her face and make her deep brown eyes pop.
Khloe Kardashian has gone completely ‘90s with her latest hair look. Showing off a cute pouty pose, Khloe revealed her take on the honey-blonde hair trend featuring a blunt cut bob and chunky highlights.
Kim Kardashian set the Internet on fire when she debuted her fresh honey blonde on Twitter becoming the first of the Kardashian/Jenner sisters to go for the shade. Cheekily she hinted sisters Kylie and Khloe had been wanting to try the shade but that she’d beaten them to it. And, we’re ready to call it: This will be one of the hottest hair shades of 2020.
In early 2019, songstress Demi Lovato chopped her long locks into a blunt cut bob. However, for a few weeks at the beginning of 2020, she shared a brief romance with waist-length hair extensions. Not for long though! In late February, Demi ditched her new lengths and unveiled a glossy chocolate bob.
Nashville actress Hayden Panettiere announced her return to social media by showing off her choppy new cropped ‘do on Twitter accompanied by a shout out to her hairstylist Naomi Szloboda: “Thank you to my girl for my bomb hair cut!!!”
Julianne Hough has joined the ranks of celebs to go pink during quarantine. The dancer slash actress pepped up her sandy blonde ombre with a muted fairy floss hue and shared the results to social media with the caption, “Fairy Kitten vibes today”.
We’ve only just managed to wrap our heads around Miley Cyrus’ Joe Exotic mullet, but it appears the singer has switched up her style yet again. Mum Tish chopped Miley’s longer mullet into a Rod Stewart-esque pixie-like crop, under the watchful eye of Sally Hershberger (the hairstylist responsible for Miley’s original mullet). Hershberger shared the new look with the caption: “I trained Tish well! :wink: @tishcyrus @mileycyrus #virtualhaircut lol”.
It appears another celebrity has jumped on the bronde hair colour trend bandwagon: Khloe Kardashian. The reality star has ditched her icy blonde locks for the creamier blonde-brunette balayage that has become popular amongst celebrities, including sisters Kim and Kylie.
Em Rata can officially add blonde bombshell to her list of modelling credentials. The Kerastase ambassador partnered with the brand to dye her hair for the first time ever, ditching her signature brunette cool girl waves. We are in actual love with Em as a blonde - she is giving us Sienna Miller vibes circa Factory Girl and we can’t get enough.
The Pretty Little Liars star has swapped her choppy low maintenance bob for mermaid-level extensions. Celeb hairstylist, Violet Teriti, was responsible for the update, though she decided to keep Ashley’s signature blonde colour.
The rapper has just debuted a two-toned magenta pink pixie crop that we are *living* for. She matched her brows and nails to her new ‘do too, opting for a deep red brow and pink ombre mani to complement the daring hue.
If you haven’t been following Marina's (of Marina and the Diamonds fame) grey hair journey during quarantine what have you been doing? The popstar started going grey in her teens but up until now has always felt the need to cover them up. We’re loving seeing the star embrace her stunning salt and pepper roots.
We didn’t think it was possible for Taylor Hill aka the world’s most adorable human being to get any cuter, but apparently we were wrong. The model chopped off her long beachy waves in exchange for a shoulder grazing bob. Low maintenance, uber-flattering, we love everything about this. More of this in 2020 please.
