While we’ve seen this platinum hair color on Jenner’s famous daughters before, we’ve never seen it on the momager herself, making this hair change up much more shocking than usual.
Blake Lively is famous for her luscious mane, which is why fans were so shocked by her recent transformation.

Although Chrissy Metz keeps her hair relatively short to begin with, the actress chopped her hair even shorter this week, resulting in a chin-length bob instead.

After a short stint with brown hair, Khloé Kardashian has debuted a gorgeous, blond ombré look courtesy of L.A.-based salon, Ramirez Tran.

Paris Hilton might be one of the most well-known blondes to ever grace Hollywood, but it appears her lengthy reign as an iconic blond has finally come to an end.

Actress Salma Hayek debuted rose gold hair while attending the Cannes Film Festival this weekend, and while the shade is one of the biggest hair trends of the year, we never thought we’d see Hayek try it out for herself.

It’s no secret that bangs—specifically Bardot bangs—are trending for summer, but if you need more proof, just check out Christie Brinkley’s latest haircut by hair stylist Peter Savic. The feathered bangs perfectly frame her face, giving the former supermodel a playful, more youthful look.
Kim Kardashian’s super long extensions are finally a thing of the past. The reality star recently met up with hairstylist Chris Appleton to trade in her lengthy look for a blunt cut lob.

Jennifer Lopez has been sporting long, wavy hair for years now, but that all changed when hairstylist Chris Appleton gave the star a lob last night.

Christie Brinkley, 63, is usually seen wearing her hair in those long, bombshell waves that most supermodels always seem to be so fond of.

Unsurprisingly, this new style suits her just as well.
