The 2019 Celebrity Hair Color Changes That Made Us Do a Double-Take

StyleCaster | Nikki Brown

The best kind of transformations are the ones that make you say, “is that you?!” And when it comes to hair color, we’re looking for that same reaction, plus an audible gasp and “yas!” to confirm that the new look is indeed, a double-take worthy makeover. I’ve had my fair share of dye jobs, including platinum blonde and my personal favorite lavender. And though I’ve traded in my love for neon colors for the health of my naturally brown strands, there are a slew of celebrity hair color changes that still make me want to take the plunge.

In the aftermath of another award season, there’s plenty of inspiration. I’m still thinking about the powder blue top knot Lady Gaga wore to match her sweeping Golden Globes gown. Oh, and don’t even get me started on the effortless beauty that is Charlize Theron with a chocolate brown bob or Ashley Tisdale with millennial pink beach waves. The best part of these A-list makeovers is that we’ve only just begun. I’m 100 percent positive this year will deliver the type of before-and-afters that’ll send me completely over the edge and into the arms of a colorist. But for now, these are the celebrity hair color transformations I think you’ll love too.
