Looking for a new hairstyle? Quarantine season has led many people to get a chop, including many of your favorite celebrities! Read on to find out which new hairstyle your fave celebs are rocking, and try it out yourself!
Going blonde is a classic hairstyle makeover, and celebrities are no different. Many have eagerly embraced some highlights, ombre, or all over bleached hairstyles. New blonde locks are being rocked by male and female celebrities alike. The best part? Going blonde is not even that much effort, just a little bit of product and your hair is suddenly a gorgeous new color!
Get A Big Chop
Another popular and relatively easy hairstyle change many celebrities are rocking is just getting a big chop, going from long tresses to a cute bob. It might sound scary to cut off so much hair, especially at one time, but at the end of the day it will all grow back, so don’t worry! You can go as short or as long as you want, from a shoulder length long bob (a.k.a a lob) to a cute little pixie cut. This style works with most textures of hair and has been seen on celebrities including Chrissy Tiegen and Kim Kardashian.
Try A Fun Color
Now is also a good time to try and dye your hair a fun, unique color like pink, purple, or blue. Since you won’t be going out as much, you don’t have to worry about upkeep or professional appearance. The color will probably wash out in a few months! You can easily pick up a coloring kit at your local drugstore or superstore and try doing the look yourself at home.
Model Kaia Gerber has recently trended for getting some cool new pink hair, and she did it all herself! Actresses Sarah Hyland and Hilary Duff have also posted their awesome new DIY dye jobs in red and blue respectively. (Although pink is still definitely the most popular color among celebrities and influencers).
Shave It All Off
If you really want to be bold with your hairstyle transformation, then follow in the footsteps of celebrities like Tiffany Haddish, Lena Waithe, and Sanaa Lathan, who all recently buzzed their heads to the bone. This is the textbook definition of a drastic makeover, but why not try it? As many trending videos on TikTok have preached, shave your head just so at least you can say that you did it, or else you can never show your kids.
It’s probably not everyone’s cup of tea, but many report shaving your head as a life changing experience. It’s great to do while you’re young and are allowed more freedom of expression, plus it’s on trend so you won’t be the only one. Try doing it with friends too, so you can all go through the journey together! Do it once to prove to yourself that you can be fashionably brave, because it will always grow back eventually.
Let It Grow
The polar opposite to shaving it all off, try letting your hair grow out instead! Many celebrities, just like the rest of us, have been unable to get haircuts or see their hair stylists due to the pandemic. And what do you do when you can’t get a haircut? Let it all grow out! If your hair is already long, welcome those extra few inches, and if it’s shorter, embrace a fun and shaggy look while it grows out untamed. Don’t worry, you’re definitely not the only one.
Male celebrities especially have been having a fun time growing out their hair and long, gorgeous locks.
Go For A Subtle Middle Length Style
Getting a middle length haircut (think somewhere just below the shoulders) definitely isn’t as dramatic as a bob, pixie, or buzz cut. However, it can still be a fun way to revive your hair and get a new look. Depending on how long your hair is, a middle length cut can be pretty dramatic! You can also use the new cut to try and part your hair a different way. Celebrities with naturally wavy curly hair like Priyanka Chopra have rocked this style and look absolutely stunning!
Getting bangs is also a classic hair makeover choice. However, celebrities have been stepping the style up by getting textured and layered bangs that look more natural and add volume to their hair. Bangs require frequent management, but they are great for framing the face! Try to figure out what kind of face shape you have and see what style of bangs would go best with it. If you’re not ready to commit to a cut, you can also try some fake clip in bangs to see how you would theoretically look without actually cutting your hair. One thing that is not recommended though is cutting your own bangs, that usually just ends in disaster.
The Mullet Makeover Is Back
Yes, the mullet is definitively back in the fashion trend cycle. During a time when most everyone is growing out their hair because they can’t get it cut, it seems the mullet is almost inevitable. Although many people have still denounced the iconic retro style, many others, including celebrities like Miley Cyrus, have embraced the mullet look. Whether it’s for ironic purposes or not is still up for debate. The style might look bad in old movies or when your dad had one in the ‘80s, but that doesn’t mean it won’t look good on you. A true fashionista knows how to pull off any look!
Practice Your Braids
Though it doesn’t involve a trip to the salon (or a trip to the bathroom with salon tools), braiding your hair is still an easy way to change your hairstyle. It’s also great because it’s temporary and you can take it off at the end of the day! Many celebrities have been experimenting with new ways to twist and tie their hair. Think of Taylor Swift’s Folklore album art for example.
