Celebrities change up their hair all the time for movie roles, new projects or just for fun and though making a drastic hair change can be scary, thank goodness we don’t have to do it under the eyes of paparazzi and gossip magazines. We have counted down the best (and one we’re not quite sure of yet!) recent celebrity hair transformations for a little inspiration toward your next salon visit.
Anne Hathaway is one of those actresses that could get away with almost any type of hairstyle and still look like a classic beauty, however there is something about this short pixie cut that gives her an eternally chic Audrey Hepburn vibe. The new ‘do is for her role as Fantine in the new film adaptation of Les Miserables which is set to release later this year, and we hope that Anne keeps this cropped cut around – the minimal effort but super glam 60’s vibe is enough to make us long-haired girls envious!

Lady Gaga definitely isn’t one for subtle hair trends and so she took us by surprise when she dyed her platinum blonde locks a rich, more classic chocolate brown colour which she likes to call ‘Louis Vuitton Brown’. Gaga tweeted, “Definitely feeling less blond lately and little more progressive brunette…” We give the shade two thumbs up but let’s just hope she doesn’t pair it with any meat ensembles.

Like most musicians, Rihanna changes her appearances very often – she shocked us all with the Tina Turner inspired dark roots and blonde wavy locks at The Grammys. Fortunately, we breathed a sigh of relief when she walked the VMA’s red carpet with a short pixie cut, a style she’s had in the past. Rihanna looks so beautiful with short hair, her high cheekbones and feminine features allow her to pull it off effortlessly. With her long white gown and red lips she was truly an old Hollywood vision.

We give Miley Cyrus credit for being completely fearless with her hair. There’s no way I would ever allow a razor and platinum blonde colour anywhere near my head! Her Robyn-esque cut was done by Chris McMillian (yes, he created ‘the Rachel!’) With Miley working on a new album we expect to be hearing a much harder and mature sound – nothing reminiscent of her sweet Disney days – to match her new look. Whether you love it or hate it, we applaud Miley for being such a beauty risk-taker!
