Three words: short, blonde and shaved. These were the hair trends this year rocking the celeb world. It’s kind of hard to tell who inspired who this year with all these similar and daring hair cuts. However, what I love about these celebrity do’s is that they can sometimes have meaning and inspiration behind them.
Here are 10 awesome celebrity hair makeovers:
1. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is known for her outrageous makeovers, but this one has quite a bit of meaning behind it. The singer shaved a portion of her head in memory of Terry Richardson’s mom, Annie Lomax. Gaga tweeted a photo of her new hair with a special message to her friend.
2. CeCe Frey
CeCe Frey shocked “X-Factor” viewers when she debuted her new platinum blonde look. CeCe isn’t new to daring looks as she often paints leopard print spots on her face. Fierce!
3. Anne Hathaway
Bless Anne Hathaway’s soul. I fell in love with Anne Hathaway this summer because she was a total babe in The Dark Knight Rises. When I saw her with her pixie cut, courtesy of her role in the upcoming film Les Miserables, my heart was sent into flutters. She really can rock anything.
4. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus sent the twitterverse into a buzz of love-hate feuding with her new do. Despite what anyone says, I think it’s awesome that Miley’s new haircut was able to give her a lot of confidence.
5. Marina and the Diamonds
Marina and the Diamonds completely transformed her entire wardrobe for her new album, Electra Heart. In her video for “Fear and Loathing,” Marina is seen chopping off her thick, black hair and opting for a cute bob. The move was daring, but her transformation totally goes with the theme of her album.
6. Avril Lavigne
We all copied Avril Lavigne back in the day when she wore baggy shorts and ties. But will we be shaving our heads and dying our locks green like she did? Something tells me that not all of us will… but kudos to those daring souls who do!
Rihanna is basically the queen of hair transformation. This year alone, she sported dreadlocks and shaved hair, but this look suits her perfectly. Her pixie cut looks lovely with her tiny face. I don’t know a lot of people who could pull this look off!
8. Natalie Portman
Remember when Natalie Portman shaved her head for her role in V for Vendetta? Natalie was obviously ahead of the game back then, and perhaps she is again this year. The actress debuted her new blonde locks at a dinner party with her fiance. Maybe this is who is inspiring everyone else to hop on the blonde trend?
9. Lena Dunham
Girls creator Lena Dunham tweeted about her pixie haircut, joking that it was inspired by Miley Cyrus.
10. Demi Lovato
Last but not least is X-Factor judge, Demi Lovato. This year, Demi sported some lovely mermaid locks of different colours, like pink and green. Only recently did she return to her natural brown hair colour. No matter what, Demi always looks stunning. Cue my jealousy.
