2014 has been a year of drastic change in the celebrity hair department. We’ve seen a handful of celebs head to the salon and walk out almost unrecognizable. Whether for a role or just a change of pace, these stars switched things up good.
After faking us out by posting a picture on Instagram with Photoshopped purple hair, Nicole Richie decided to really take the plunge.
Cutting your hair into a long bob is not a particularly drastic move for an average person. But if you’re T. Swift, it’s almost like losing a limb.
Though certainly not her most dramatic hair transformation, Spears’ dark auburn locks are a big change from her usual blonde ‘do.
Gyllenhaal has been sporting a pixie for a while now, so she is no stranger to drastic hairstyles. But she took her look one step further and debuted a new bleach-blonde chop at Cannes.
Do we see a trend here? First go short, then go blonde. This funny lady followed in Maggie Gyllenhaal’s footsteps with a chop, and a few months later, a bleach job.
The first guy to be added to our list, Adam Levine took to Instagram with his then-fiancée Behati Prinsloo to show the world his new bleach-blonde ‘do. Then he took to Twitter to tell all the haters, “I hope people understand that when they say my hair looks creepy, I take that as the highest compliment.” Which is weirdly, also kind of creepy. I guess we should say, “You’re welcome?”
Chopping off a few inches may not be considered a drastic hair transformation for just anybody, but Pippa is a near-royal. Plus, those Middleton sisters are known for their signature long, chocolate brown locks.
So long, Sookie. Anna Paquin took to Twitter to ask her hubby and co-star Stephen Moyer if he was into her fulfilling her teen dream of being a mermaid (i.e. dying her hair purple). He quickly responded with “Wow wife… You look amazing.” Awww, True Blood love.
We thought Emma Stone couldn’t get any more gorgeous. Then she showed up at the Venice Film Festival with a freshly shorn bob that shows off her sexy neck and shoulders. Boom.
