2014's Best Celeb Hair-Color Makeovers

Hair in Hollywood is typically fabulous, sometimes disastrous, but always fickle. Still, that's pretty understandable. If we had access to the best colorists in the biz (and a job that required us to change up our look fairly frequently), we'd be test-driving loads of hair colors on the regular, too.
As is typical, though, some of these dye jobs have us ooh-ing and ahh-ing more than others. Ahead, we're sharing 15 of the latest celebrity mane makeovers that are making our hearts go pitter-patter. Whether it's My Little Brony Pony-inspired Lance Bass or newly blonde Karlie Kloss, there's definitely some inspiration hiding in these pages. Click on, and then get thee to your colorist. You've got some experimenting to do!

But, we've got to say, we're big fans of the all-black everything she's got going on here. She looks so much more sophisticated and chic without the dip-dyed ends. Her current shade looks a bit more blue-black than her natural hair color, which makes it super flattering.

So, when we saw her purple mane at this year's Met Gala, we were pretty much head over heels. Sadly, this dye job was temporary, so it was gone shortly after that night.

But, her new, orange dye job (and killer cut) let her embrace that DGAF beauty philosophy and still look badass (not sloppy) in the process.

Karlie Kloss Before
Since she'd already conquered the haircut world by pretty much starting the lob trend, it was only natural Karlie's next move would be color...

But, we've got to say, this two-toned look with the platinum hair and brunette beard is strangely working for us. Colorblocking for bros, if you will.

But, this cotton-candy-blue hue may be our favorite shade that she's ever tried.

This sunset hair, on the other hand, seems right on point — and oddly chic for a rainbow mane.
