Celebrities seem to have an extra bit of courage in them when it comes to hair transformations. Perhaps that’s because if something goes wrong they have the budget to have it fixed before they leave the salon chair. Another benefit is the column mentions and social media attention. But for some celebrity ladies, the chop has an incredible impact on their look for the better. From the edgy pixie cut to an asymmetrical bob, there are some hair transformations that really take a celeb to the next level. Here’s our round up of our favorite celebrity’s that have braved the scissors.
Victoria Beckham Long Hair To Bob
When something major happens in life, we often need a change. One of the simplest yet drastic ways to make a change is by chopping our hair. In 2006 in husband David Beckham and the England soccer team failed to make a splash in the World Cup, it was time for a change. Victoria chopped off her long hair for an iconic graduated bob.
Her new cut was based on a classic graduated bob but to give it more shape and a modern feel, the ends were cut at a point. The shaped worked well with her thin face and transformed her entire look.
Sienna Miller Transformed to a Wob!
We all make mistakes in life. But the important thing is that we learn from them and move on. In Sienna’s older (and longer hair boho days) the actress admits that she made some questionable choices. Since then, the beauty has turned things around and her new haircut is part of the maturity and transformation. In the summer of 2014, Sienna debuted her much shorter and wavy hair – now known as the Wob. This young mom has confirmed yet again that the bob does not have to be synonymous with the “mom-do”.
Lauren Conrad Long Hair to Bob
Lauren is known for her long blonde California locks since her days as LC on the reality show Laguna Beach. Fast-forward a decade (time flies!) and the reality star turned entrepreneur is running multiple businesses and married. So, Lauren decided it’s time for a chop. Lauren called her hairstylist and told her she was ready for the bob. But – her hairstylist wasn’t. Instead, she insisted that Lauren start slow to let Lauren get use to her playing with the new texture and length and they would slowly continue chopping. Well, Lauren found herself visiting the salon every week until she took that lob to a true bob. The result? An incredibly chic hair transformation!
Scarlett Johannson Long Hair to Pixie
We love everything that Scarlett does. She has been the color chameleon with blonde, brunette and blonde hair. But, she has generally kept her locks long and flowing. But in 2014, while the media was focused on her upcoming birth, she gave them something new to talk about – her pixie cut. She explained that she was tired of wearing a ponytail all the time (a lot of us are guilty of that!). She said that everybody told her not to cut her hair, but then she realized “why am I letting other people tell me what to do?” If you’ve been wanting to chop it off and people around you are against it – just do what you want, ladies!
Jennifer Lawrence Pixie Cut
As a brunette Jennifer Lawrence had a look of mystery about her but we loved it when in late 2013 she opted for a pixie cut. Her new, blonde do looked fresh and gave her an air of sophistication. Jennifer’s hair was full of texture, which gave her the ability to style it in a variety of ways.
Jessica Alba Long Hair to Bob
This flawless beauty would look good with any length but like most of us, she’s played it safe with a longer hairstyle. She’s had ombre, and blonde and chestnut hair but her medium to long cuts could be guaranteed. But she showed us that she isn’t afraid to cut off her hair for a low maintenance and chic bob.
Kaley Cuoco with Shorter Hair
For people who think that short hair is for moms, should take a look at Kaley Cuoco’s shorter locks. The Big Bang Theory star took scissors to her longer tresses and then couldn’t stop chopping. The next thing she new, herself and her TV alias had a big new look. Although her character did mature with a more serious job as a Pharmaceutical sales rep, we think this shorter do makes her look youthful and vibrant.
