The Biggest Celebrity Hair Transformations Of 2018 So Far

It's time to leave 2017's bad beauty decisions in the past and look toward a better future. After all, with a new slate comes new opportunities: You can finally start that YouTube channel you've been dreaming about, wear the blue lipstick you've been eyeing, or get a completely different haircut. And with the latter, who better to look to for inspiration than celebs like Beyoncé, Halsey, and Selena Gomez?

We may only be a few days into January, but a few of our favorite stars have already debuted some shocking hair transformations. Gone are the days of subtle layers and quick trims — if you're ready to make a drastic change in 2018, you'll want to see these looks. Ahead, check out Beyoncé's curly bob, Halsey's Marilyn Monroe-inspired pixie, and Gomez's first hair change since going blond a few months ago — and more.

The sci-fi bob dominated salons and Instagram feeds from all over the world last year. Now, Beyoncé is here to reinvent the trend — because, of course. Pairing her blunt ends with plenty of volume and texture, we think we just found this year's new reigning bob.
Halsey has always been a beauty chameleon, and has yet to meet a texture or color she won't try. But to ring in the new year, the 23-year-old ditched her most recent braided style for something much more 1950s — and platinum to boot.
Despite spending nine hours in the salon chair, with 300 foils folded with eight bowls-worth of bleach, to get her platinum blond 'do back in November, Gomez officially went back to her roots before ringing in the new year. Who needs a high-maintenance hair routine, anyway?
Kris Jenner has dipped her toe in the platinum pool before, but this time it's for real. In October, everyone's favorite Momager followed in daughter Kim Kardashian West's footsteps and went blond. Now, it looks like the "new year, new me" bug bit Jenner too — just in time for celebrity hairstylist and bleach guru Chris Appleton to take her back to the bright side.

It's official: Daisy Ridley is no longer walking on the dark side... of the hair spectrum. Yes, the former brunette has revived our favorite color trend of the summer (one that we sorely missed, might we add) with this buttery new hue.
