Hair + Transformations = Hairformations! We rounded up the best celebrity hair transformations of this year (so far).

1. Julianne Hough

1This actress/dancer ditched her blonde locks and traded it in for a fiery hue, and couldn’t have been more pleased with the results. On Instagram, she wrote, “I have never felt more like ME than I do right now!! I have always felt like a red head my whole life. I’ve seriously talked about doing this for 6 years, ask anyone who knows me…and now that I’m on this new journey, exploring and finding out who I truly am.”

2. Mila Kunis

2Kunis chopped her hair into a chic lob earlier this year, and then she added a super cute, front fringe to her look. She debuted her new do at this year’s Billboard Music awards.

3. Rihanna

3Riri has been rocking her natural dark hair for most of her career, and we loved it, but this year she decided it was time to switch things up. She recently posted her freshly lightened blonde do on Instagram, but we have some doubts. Is her new blonde hair merely a sneaky lace front wig? Here’s to hoping that this transformation is the real deal and not something temporary.

4. Kylie Jenner

4This Jenner changes  her hair every other day (or so it seems). Kylie shared her new platinum blonde bob on Instagram, and we are in love!

5.  Ariana Grande


Ariana ditched her signature high ponytail and debuted her new pulled back look on the cover of the July issue of British Vogue, revealing warm blonde hues and deep-parted tousled waves.  But if you prefer her as a brunette, you’ll be glad to hear that she appeared at an iHeart Radio event with her usual brunette hair. Although it was a short-lived transformation, it’s definitely a side of Ariana we’ve never seen before!
