Plus, more of the best celeb hair transformations of 2020 so far
You know what they say: new year, new ’do! And celebs are taking that super seriously. We’re just three months into 2020 and already several of our faves have chopped or dyed their hair. From celebrities like Miley Cyrus embracing the mullet to Kristen Stewart’s enduring commitment to the genderless haircut trend (but blonder!), stars are ready to let their hair do the talking in 2020—and we’re ready to listen.
It’s a whole new world when it comes to celeb locks, but this 2019 rule remains: You should 100% get bangs.
What better way to kick off spring than with a fresh new cut—just ask The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. While on a royal tour of Ireland, HRH debuted new ’70s inspired bangs, and we are totally here for it! The new curtain fringe, which perfectly frames her face, is super cute and not to mention super stylish. Get it, HRH!
Kylie is the kween of changing up her hair; whether it’s a wig, a new cut or a fresh new colour, the makeup mogul loves to switch it up when it comes to her locks—and this might be our favourite hair change yet! On February 28, Jenner debuted a new caramel blonde colour—and we’re calling it, this’ll be the hair colour of 2020. The entrepreneur and mama to Stormi is currently on vacation and showing off her new colour all over the ’gram; and honestly, we can’t blame her. The colour is *that* good.
Justin Bieber’s upper lip is finally free! The Biebs posted a shot of his freshly shaven mug, nary a moustache hair in sight, captioned: “I shaved. MUSTASHIO went on holiday, but he will be back in due time.” Wife Hailey Bieber commented “yeeeeee,” followed by a heart-eye emoji. Even Bieber’s mama Pattie Mallette was into it, commenting, “Ya praise God.” The Justache won’t be gone long judging by the pic’s caption, so enjoy it while it lasts, ladies.
We love a big hair change—especially when said hair happens to *not* be on your head. Lady Gaga debuted a fresh eyebrow look on February 13 when she posted a selfie rocking bleached brows. “Sushi!!!!!,” the singer captioned the photo of herself on Instagram. The A Star is Born actor is far from the first celeb to rock the “no eyebrow” trend (RiRi infamously donned subdued brows on the September 2018 cover of Vogue UK), but we honestly love this look on Gaga!
Kim Kardashian West
Never one to stick to a singular beauty look for long, Kim Kardashian West did a complete 180 degree switch-up from her normally dark hair, revealing a warm honey blonde in her Instagram stories on February 11. The jury’s still out on whether or not this is a wig (as Cosmopolitan points out, the Kardashian-Jenner fam *loves* their wigs), but either way, we love this warm hue for spring!
In the middle of promo for her latest album Rare, singer Selena Gomez took a few moments on February 10 to show off her newest cut and colour on the ‘gram. With her curly lob and honey highlights, Gomez’s latest hair look is giving us some serious Jennifer Lopez vibes. We love it!
Also using the Oscars to debut a fresh, new ‘do was actor and activist Jane Fonda. Taking the stage to present the final award of the night—Best Picture, which went to Parasite—Fonda shocked the crowd with her fab icy blonde colour and and shorter cut. According to her colourist Jack Martin, who also posted an Insta photo, the process took seven hours.
Well, it appears that Little Women star Saoirse Ronan has answered the age old question: “Should I get bangs?” The answer, my friends, is a resounding yes. The actor debuted her new fringe on the Oscars red carpet. She may not have taken home the Best Actress trophy, but she definitely wins a beauty award from us.
There’s no better time to make a new hair debut than on the red carpet for the biggest night in Hollywood. The Crown’s Olivia Colman walked the Oscars red carpet on February 9 with voluminous sleeves, a bit of bling and a new blonde ’do! The switch up is a refreshing change for the usually brunette actor and she pulls it off like a true *cough* queen *cough.*
It looks like 2020 is set to be the year of the celeb mullet! Only days after singer Miley Cyrus debuted her much shorter 10-90, Euphoria actor Barbie Ferreira followed suit. Ferreira, already no stranger to a chic bob, debuted her shortest and edgiest look yet on her Instagram stories. In the post, Ferreira also gave a shout-out to her hairdresser, Laurie Heaps, for the cool, choppy mullet. We’re absolutely ~euphoric~ over this hair change. And TBH, it might even be better than Miley’s?!
He (along with Charlize Theron) made the bowl cut chic in 2019, and now it seems like Timmy is trying to make the 15th century moustache a thing. Since the start of the New Year, the Little Women actor has been spotted walking around New York and attending galas with a very special +1: his new moustache/goatee combo. Photographed at the National Board of Review Gala on January 8, Chalamet’s newest facial addition was on full display, and does anyone else get some serious Renaissance painting vibes from his new look? TBH, I don’t hate it. Winter is offish here, and we wouldn’t want our beloved Timmy’s precious face to freeze.
Honestly, this ‘stache was a missed opportunity for Little Women.

Stepping out for the premiere of her new film Underwater, Kristen Stewart’s typically edgy locks were even more punk-looking than usual thanks to a trim by stylist Adir Abergel and a little more bleach. We are here for her blonder ’do! Stewart is no stranger to the genderless haircut, and we have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more KStew-inspired cuts popping up on some of our fave celebs.
On January 6, the singer took to Instagram to show off much shorter locks in a series of three Instagram posts sharing the hairstyle change while teasing forthcoming new music. “New Hair. New Year. NEW MUSIC!,” the “Mother’s Daughter” singer captioned the posts. The shaggy cut is a shorter-version of the very popular (but controversial) mullet Cyrus debuted in November 2019, and if the number of posts gracing Cyrus’s feed are anything to go off of, she’s defs feeling her new look.
Not only is Cyrus’s new hairdo a nod to her dad’s famous mullet, it also reminds us (and a ton of fans in the comments) of another badass female rockstar, singer Joan Jett. Musician @thisiswatt commented “Cherry Bomb” on one of the posts, referencing the title of one of Jett’s most famous songs. Model @willam had a similar idea, commenting “Runaways vibes. Happy 2020!” on the same post (a reference to Jett’s 1970s-era band, The Runaways).
Does this new look mean we can expect a more of a rocker vibe from Cyrus’s 2020 music?
