Fashion’s favorite faces cultivate a signature look, but there comes a sartorial tipping point when they have a drastic haircut or color change. Dramatic hair makeovers famously occur in the midst of a major life change or the transition into a new season. See Gigi Hadid, who swapped her sun-kissed highlights for a deeper shade of honey brown while out and about in New York in January.
Earlier this year, Selena Gomez departed from her trademark, waist-grazing waves, opting instead for a mid-length chop as she prepped for another busy season ahead. The lob also found favor in models Emily Ratajkowski and Lily Aldridge, who snipped their hair below their shoulders to usher in the New Year.
Platinum hair—whether styled into a choppy pixie or blunt bob—is proving to be the color du jour among the A-list set. Cara Delevingne, Katy Perry, and Kristen Stewart (who recently shaved her head) underwent major peroxide hair transformations ahead of the new season.
Here, we highlight the best celebrity hair transformations of 2017 (so far) that will inspire your next hair salon appointment.
