The Best Celebrity Hair Changes Of 2019 — So Far

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.

Before her appearance on Saturday Night Live, Halsey took a page out of David Bowie's book, coloring her hair Ziggy Stardust-red. And this isn't her first switch-up of the year, either. The singer went blonde for a short period of time before experimenting with this new Kool-Aid color.

Karlie Kloss kicked off New York Fashion Week (and a new year) by shedding some inches. Her stylist Harry Josh cut seven inches off the model's hair, leaving her with a lob that dances right above her shoulder.

Julianne Hough created her own version of 2019's biggest haircut trend: the shag. The actress posed on Instagram with her bob and bangs chopped in wispy layers. The cut was done by her longtime stylist, Riawna Capri. According to Capri, Goldie Hawn was the inspiration for her client's new look.

For those blessed with curls, textured bangs are easily the freshest, most flattering way to make a change for the new year. Just ask hairstylist Ted Gibson, who gave Sandra Oh shaggy bangs that show off her glowing skin and bone structure. To shape the fringe perfectly, he cut her curls dry and styled the front pieces using his own Shooting Star Texture Meringue mousse.

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 Nikki Lee took the actress' hair (which was already blonde) up a few notches with this bright icy 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.

The blunt bob is here to stay — just ask Irina Shayk. The model walked the Golden Globes red carpet with a chin-length bob, courtesy of celebrity stylist Harry Josh, that made us want to run for scissors and chop all our hair off, too.

Jamie Lee Curtis took monochromatic beauty to the next level when she showed up to the Golden Globes with her hair lifted to 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?
