Celebrities are definitely chameleons when it comes to their hair.
Whether they're switching it up for a new album era or movie role, colouring it pink to join the cotton candy hair club, or committing to a mullet moment, Hollywood hair changes come a mile a minute. So, to make sure you don't miss a single one, we're rounding up all of 2021's boldest, bravest and best cuts, colours and tress transformations.
Whether you're here for inspiration's sake or just to see what your fave faces look like without their signature style, you've definitely come to the right place...
There was a time when Miley's mullet was making headlines all around the world, but TBH the business-in-the-front, party-in-the-back look is just park of her rocker chic package now. When she styles it into a gravity-devying mohawk, however, now that's a moment. Why? Because that's a party (fittingly in the USA; it was for a Fourth of July performance) all around.

It appears the bangs were just the beginning. Turner just took to Instagram Stories in a bid to do two crucial things: Show off her new 'SOUR' merch (with an Olivia Rodrigo tag firmly in place, of course) and debut her freshly coloured fiery copper shade. She really said Sansa Stark, but make it 2021.

In our heads, Emma Stone's hair will always be a chic scarlet bob. So you can imagine our surprise when she stepped out at the premiere of her movie Cruella with this lengthy mane.

She's flirted with fringes quite a few times over the years, but hell, we'll just say what everyone's thinking: these face-framing curtain bangs are the best look she's ever rocked. And with J.Lo, that's really, truly saying something.

When it comes to The Queen's Gambit, there are two types of viewers: the ones that are dying to learn chess, and the ones that are desperate to dye their hair a Beth Harmon-esque red. Evidently, Hadid is the latter. "She is dedicated to everyone responsible for The Queen's Gambit," she captioned her red hair reveal.

It feels like we're living a teenage dream again; Perry just posted a pic of herself with her iconic long black hair. Is the colour temporary or the work of a wig? Possibly. Is the length an extension-aided mirage? Probably. But will we enjoy being in our 2010 feels while it lasts? Absolutely. Alexa, play 'California Gurls'...

Shakira's vibrant red colour may have technically been a mistake, but hell, it's the chicest, most striking mistake we've seen in a while. "The idea was to go more pink, but I ran out of pink... I needed to mix it with another product I had, that was little more intense..." she shared via Instagram, showing off a vibrant Jessica Rabbit red blow-dried to absolute perfection.

The reality TV star and beauty mogul recently shared an adorable image of herself to IG that had us doing double takes. Is it just us or does Kim look just like 3-year-old daughter Chicago with these Baby Spice-inspired pigtails and loose face-framing strands? Regardless, we’re loving this playful look on the mum-of-four.

The members of Little Mix are some of our biggest inspirations when it comes to trying daring new styles. One third of the pop trio, Leigh-Anne, is no exception. The 29-year-old, who was previously sporting a waterfall fringe and full head of curls, has ditched the style in favour of some truly stunning butterfly locs in a creamy hazelnut brown hue. We’re all *heart eyes* over this one.

The mum-of-one has reverted back to her natural deep chocolate roots and taken her mermaid lengths to the extreme while she’s at it. The youngest Jenner shared the snap of her new hair while on vacation in Mexico recently, donning an impressive set of knee-grazing extensions, while serving us a modern-day interpretation of the Venus de Milo. Exquisite.

Jessie J’s taking a stroll down memory lane with her latest chop. The singer took a pair of scissors to her lob for a homemade take on the tried and true short bob and fringe cut she adores so much. Adding in her caption that she's available for hair consultations via Zoom if anyone’s interested: “Home haircut by me. Appointments for haircuts by me now available on zoom... 👀 Monday - Friday. DM me for details.”

Jenner changed her hair colour last year more than we switched our sweatpants, but she started 2021 off strong by trading in her 'Jessica Rabbit' red in favour of a return to her signature raven hue.

She ditched her long locks right before 2020 wrapped up, but Lovato just took her platinum crop into pastel pink territory, layering a cotton candy colour over the top of her bleached blonde.

After breaking out the bleach for 2020, TikTok star D'Amelio opted for an edgy cut and colour combo, returning back to the jet black shade we met her with, but debuting a chin-grazing new chop.
