Kaley Cuoco

Cuoco usually plays it pretty safe when it comes to her hair preferences, but surprisingly the usually blond actress just made a drastic change to her hairdo. In a recent Instagram post, Cuoco revealed she's dyed her hair a shade of "dreamy sherbet" which appears to be a silvery-blue hue painted in streaks throughout her hair.

Paris Hilton

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. The former reality star-turned-businesswoman was recently spotted wearing her hair in a deep brunette shade—much different from her usual golden hue.

Salma Hayek

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. Even though the look is courtesy of a wig created by Jennifer Yepez, we can't help but hope Hayek will try something a little more permanent in the future.

Christie Brinkley

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

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. While we're unsure whether or not an actual hair cut took place (Appleton is known for faking shorter hairdos on celebrities with wigs and other tricks of the trade to create faux bobs), we can't help but admit that the new style is a good look for her.

Jennifer Lopez

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. We can't be sure if Appleton simply took out Lopez's extensions, gave her an actual cut or used a wig to fake the look, but either way we can't help but love Lopez's new style.

Demi Lovato

Hairstylist César Ramírez chopped Demi Lovato's hair into a piecey lob before attending the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards this past Saturday. The layered look had caramel balayage twisted along her shortened strands, giving her usual darkened style some extra dimension.

Hillary Clinton

On International Women's Day, Hillary Clinton debuted a brand new haircut for spring while speaking at a leadership conference. The hairdo was styled pin-straight and featured long, whispy bangs that were strangely reminiscent of Kris Jenner's signature style.

Katy Perry

Fresh from her recent platinum dye job, Katy Perry decided to chop her hair into a spiky pixie cut for her most dramatic hair transformation to date. The look, which was cut by celebrity stylist Chris McMillan, is super reminiscent of Miley Cyrus' hair, which coincidently was cut by McMillian as well.

Christie Brinkley

Christie Brinkley, 63, is usually seen wearing her hair in those long, bombshell waves that most supermodels always seem to be so fond of. While we absolutely love that classic look on her, Brinkley decided to change things up and get a pin-straight lob for an event in Houston this past weekend instead. Unsurprisingly, this new style suits her just as well.

Penelope Cruz

Bardot bangs were dubbed one of the biggest hair trends of 2017, which is why Penelope Cruz's freshly cropped cut spotted at the British Academy Film Awards isn't too surprising.

Emilia Clarke

We're used to seeing Emilia Clarke as a platinum blond in Game of Thrones and even as an ombré brunette on the red carpet, however, her latest look has us doing a serious double take. Clarke debuted a shaggy cut with whispy bangs at a BAFTA party this past weekend and the edgy, new style certainly suits her.

Olivia Wilde

It's only been a few short months since Olivia Wilde ditched her longer locks for a blunt lob, but now she's gone even shorter and dyed her hair platinum for an all-around edgier style.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry, who was seen sporting a bright, yellow-toned hair color a few weeks ago, just debuted a softer, bleached blond hue via Instagram.

Celine Dion

The songstress is known for her long dark blonde locks, having worn this look for most of her career. For 2017, she's stepping out in a much lighter hue, although her signature style and length remain in tact.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry is known for being unafraid of experimenting with her hair color, which is why this bleached blond look shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. The lighter shade is a dramatic change for the singer, who is usually seen sporting much darker hair.

Nina Dobrev

Proving that the trendy lob haircut isn't going anywhere in 2017, Nina Dobrev opted for a shoulder-grazing chop that hairstylist (and best friend) Riawna Capri cut just before the London premiere of Dobrev's latest film, xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde said good-bye to her long, ombré hair and opted for a rumpled lob and brightened-up highlights instead. In her Instagram caption announcing her new 'do, Wilde thanked stylist Harry Josh for the cut and tagged it #nomoremelaniahair.

Jessica Chastain

Jessica Chastain is borderline unrecognizable without her usual copper-colored hair, which is why her new chocolate-brown hue was much more surprising than other dye jobs we've seen.

Ruby Rose

Known for her dramatic dye jobs on the fly, Ruby Rose just colored her hair an edgy, bright pink shade.
