55 Best Celebrity Hairstyles
1. Jennifer Garner
There have been several Jennifer Garner hairstyles over the years and we have loved them all. But what truly never fails to amaze us is the transformation the 13 Going On 30 star underwent when she grew out her bangs.
2. Heidi Klum
The Heidi Klum haircut is one of the most amazing celebrity hairstyles that showcases a stunning transformation going from bangs to no bangs. Heidi has changed her hair several times and she looks stunning in each one of those. She channels the rocker chic to the sophisticated elegance with so much ease that we cannot help but rush to the nearest salon with our new hairstyle inspiration.
3. Jennifer Lopez
She is a woman who refuses to age and has started to give us major throwbacks through her hairstyles. Jennifer Lopez is an incredibly talented singer as well as an actress who has been our constant hair inspiration. All the Jennifer Lopez hairstyles are a work of art and we are crazy for them. Are you?
4. Jennifer Aniston
We cannot talk about celebrity hairstyles and not talk of Jennifer Aniston. She is the one who gave us the iconic Rachel cut. Of course, we are going to look up to her for inspiration. The Friends star might not have undergone any major transformations over the years but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t changed her hair since the 90s! Jennifer has chosen subtle yet highly impactful hair changes ranging from her haircut to her hair color.
5. Selena Gomez
The latest Selena Gomez haircut has us craving for a long bob. This is one of the most stunning transformations that you can see when it comes to celebrity haircuts. We loved her long tresses and now when Selena has decidedly gone short, we are nothing but heart eyes.
6. Lisa Rinna
We are a fan of Lisa Rinna hairstyles too and this woman never fails to impress. It was after years that she changed her hairstyle from her cute and short feathered layers to a very short backcombed bob.
7. Kristin Cavallari
Here is another one of the most stunning celebrity hairstyles that says change can be good. Kristin Cavallari opted for a change as she chopped her wavy blonde locks for an asymmetrical collar bone touching bob.
8. Zooey Deschanel
Okay, so this is one of those celebrity hairstyles that will definitely baffle you. Zooey Deschanel has been known for her long and beautiful black tresses with bangs, but what about Zooey Deschanel without bangs? Have you ever had a glimpse of that? There have been some events where Zooey has turned up without her signature bangs and it sure has baffled the onlookers because that’s how different the New Girl actress looks without them.

Charlize Theron must have rocked all sorts of hair lengths before finally settling down to a pixie. And she even keeps on changing her pixie styles. She is a true hairstyle chameleon.
10. Kim Kardashian
There have been several Kim Kardashian hairstyles over the years from super long to a super sleek bob and all of them super stunning. But, what has really added to the list of controversies are the Kim Kardashian braids. Sure, Kim looks amazing in braids but it also is a big part of cultural appropriation. Because Black culture is not an accessory to be flaunted at music festivals by White folks.
11. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus has given some of the most surprising yet stunning hairstyle transformations over the years. She has not shied away from experimenting and has always let hair hairstyles express her personality, individuality, and mood.

Emma Watson pixie cut was a major iconic moment in the history of celebrity haircuts and for all the right reasons.
16. Alicia Keys

She initiated the talk around the internet’s famous no makeup movement. And she has also given us some of the most gorgeous hairstyles including the impressive Alicia Keys braids.

Farrah Fawcett switched to a feathery bob later on but it is really her shag hairstyle that has been etched in everyone’s memories.
