2020 may be almost over, but the many memorable celebrity hair makeovers remain in amazing photos! Although this past year has been one of various challenges, some stars like Britney Spears, Kylie Jenner, Jennifer Lawrence, Ariel Winter and more didn’t let it stop them from boldly trying out newly colored and/or styled locks! To show appreciation for the brave stars who took on a new eye-catching look, we’re taking a look back and admiring our picks for the top hair makeovers of 2020.
Britney Spears gave herself two DIY haircuts in 2020! On June 15 she revealed in an Instagram photo she shared with fans that she had finally given herself bangs, after longing to have them again for the first time since childhood. However, she kept the long, blonde hair extensions that she’s worn for years. Those were the next to go as Brit ended 2020. On December 16, the “Toxic’ singer revealed she had chopped her iconic blonde locks into a shoulder length lob (read: long bob), and re- styled her bangs. “Cut my hair !!!! You know what they say …. out with the old …. in with the new !!!!! Now let us pray !!!!” she captioned the selfie.
Three days after hosting the 2020 People’s Choice Awards on Nov. 15, Demi Lovato went all in with changing up her hairstyle. At the awards show she wore two long looks, one brunette and straight that came down to her waistline, and the other a long blonde curly number. On Nov. 18 she showed off a brand new cut where her hair was completely buzzed off on one side and in the back, with her hair left slightly longer and dyed blonde on top. It is one of her best looks ever and SO fierce! What an amazing way to end 2020 with such a bold hair makeover.
Kylie Jenner changes up her hair the way most people change clothes. She went through plenty of looks in 2020, including removing her extensions and showing off her natural shoulder length brown hair just before quarantine in March. But she quickly went back to being the hair chameleon that she is. She soon rocked pink hair before going with a long bronde (brownish-blonde) look for most of summer. The cosmetics mogul then dyed her long locks red in Dec. 2020. Kylie is ending the year with the fiery color, keeping it while ringing in 2021 in Aspen, CO.
After spending the first seven months of 2020 pregnant with son Win Wilson, Ciara used the latter half of the year to try some new hair colors. In November, she dyed her long locks an icy blue, and just before Christmas she changed things up to new bubblegum pink tresses. The “Thinkin’ Bout You’ singer looks stunning no matter what color her hair is, but we love the 35-year-old’s sudden burst of experimentation.
Toni Braxton isn’t a stranger to wearing her brunette locks short. But the 53-year-old went with a near-buzz cut and had her hair dyed light blonde in Nov. 2020. “They say blondes have more fun! I’ll let you know after Thanksgiving! Wishing you and your family a healthy and happy Holiday!” Toni told fans in a Nov. 26 Instagram post where she showed off two photos of her brand new look as 2020 was coming to a close.
Fans had always known Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick‘s youngest son Reign by his long, flowing sandy locks, which had never been cut since his birth in Dec. 2014. But the kiddo wanted a change and in Aug. 2020, he got not only his first ever haircut, but a total buzzcut! While Kourt, 41, wrote “I am not ok” when unveiling his new ‘do, dad Scott loved it! He even helped Reign get it styled into a mohawk when it his hair started growing out a bit.
Jennifer’s hair makeover was for a film she was making and was really a wig! The 30-year-old actress was seen sporting the red shoulder-length look, which also included short bangs in the front, while on the set of Don’t Look Up and she looked absolutely fantastic. Although it was quite a difference from her usual blonde hair, it proved she can look great in just about any hair color!
Ariel, 22, wowed her fans with two different colors this year and she looked great in both! The Modern Family star showed off platinum blonde hair in the summer before switching to a bright pink look by the fall. She’s no stranger to various hair makeovers, though, and has been known to show off other colors like red and black.
Kaia Gerber, 19, who usually has brown hair, went for a major change when she dyed her locks pink at one point this year. Her short straight bob looked great with the vibrant tone and she appeared as confident as could be when seen out in public with it. As a model, Kaia is definitely used to incredible looks so this one was no exception! But when it came to winding down 2020, Kaia wanted her long tresses back. She debuted nearly waist-length extensions in late December.
Joe Jonas, 31, who became a father in 2020, also decided to shave off his dark-haired locks and go for a buzzcut look! The singer proved he can still look handsome even with less hair when he showed off his new hairstyle numerous times this year, including on strolls with his baby daughter. Since Joe’s been in the spotlight, he’s flaunted long locks, shorter locks and now a shaved look and we’re loving all three!
Melania Trump, 50, has also wowed with a new hair color in 2020. The First Lady debuted a lighter look from her usual darker locks when she welcomed the Christmas tree to the White House. Although the style was pretty much the same, the color change was apparent and really worked for her!
Chrishell Stause, 39, turned heads at the 2020 People’s Choice Awards when she showed up with her usual curly long locks turned straight with center part bangs! The gorgeous Selling Sunset star looked absolutely amazing with the new style and it was definitely one of the best looks of the entire award show!
President Donald Trump, 74, has also showed off a hair color change in 2020. His hair was his usual blondish color during an appearance on July 10 but by July 14, he was flaunting a natural gray color. The change got the attention of many people online and a plethora of tweets went out about it.
Kanye West, 43, was another celeb to turn heads with a hair makeover when he showed off a new short fade ‘do in July 2020. It was quite different from his look at the 9th Annual WSJ Magazine Innovator Awards in Nov. 2019, which can be seen above on the left, but it worked for him! The rapper knows how to basically take any hairstyle and make it his own, even when he tries out bold colors, which he’s also done in the past.
Jane Seymour, 69, proved that natural is the way to go when she debuted an all natural gray look in 2020. The iconic beauty normally has brown locks so the change was quite a shock to her fans but a welcomed one nonetheless! What an inspirational class act she is!
Rihanna, 32, gave us pure nostalgia when she stepped out with a mullet haircut in Nov. 2020! The “Stay” crooner is known for trying out various cuts over the years but her latest one was an awesome blast from the past that we’ve never seen before! As one of the most talented artists of our time, she unsurprisingly pulled off the look incredibly well and made us all think about bringing back the unique cut!
