The Best Celebrity Hair Changes Of 2019 — So Far

aimee simeon

Back in the day, mood rings were our way of expressing how we really felt. Now, switching up our hair is how we outwardly display what's going on inside (although we wouldn't turn down rocking an adult mood ring, TBH). If we're going through a stressful phase, it's all ponytails and grease-disguising headbands. If we're trying to bring sunshine into our lives, we make an appointment for highlights. And if we need a complete revamp, a transformative cut is on the to-do list.

Clearly our favorite celebs are itching for the latter in 2019. We're hardly one week into a new year and the stars are fully embodying the "new hair, who dis" mantra. Between Lady Gaga opening her Enigma Las Vegas residency with blue hair, Rowand Blanchard revealing a pixie cut on the Golden Globes red carpet, and Jamie Lee Curtis going winter white — there's already plenty of hair inspiration for us to gawk over.

And if the hair updates ahead are any indication of the year to come, it's safe to say that things are going to be changing a lot in 2019. Click through to see our favorite celebrity hair changes of the year so far.

If you were having doubts about going platinum in 2019, Hilary Duff's latest dye job makes a convincing case to hit up your colorist. Celebrity stylists Riawna Capri and Nikkie Lee took the actress' hair (which was already blonde) up a few notches with this bright blonde color.

For some, a pixie cut is a hard "pass," but not for Rowan Blanchard. Celebrity hairstylist Laurie Heaps took the actress' shoulder-length strands into an edgy, Natalie Portman-inspired cut. Heaps tells Refinery29 that her famous client wanted to embrace a new year with a new look.


Jamie Lee Curtis took monochromatic beauty to the next level when she showed up to the Golden Globes with her hair dyed a wintery white shade to match her red-carpet gown. Previously, the star already had a gorgeous salt-and-pepper style, but this snowy color is new for 2019.

We didn't expect Lady Gaga to kick off her Enigma tour with anything other than a bang. And she's had several bangs in the last few weeks with many different hair hues. First, it was lilac, then it was silver. And now, she's got cerulean blue hair. Her stylist Frederic Aspiras used a mix of temporary hair color to get the look. What color will she bless us with next?
