There’s nothing more liberating than getting a fresh haircut, and these celebrities know that all too well. So far this year, celebrities have graced us with such hot hair looks that we can’t stop saving them to every Pinterest board and Instagram folder we have. Charlize Theron snipped her hair the day of (!) the 2019 Oscars, showing us that the time is always right to take to the scissors. Gabrielle Union (literally) turned heads at the 2019 Vanity Fair afterparty with her cutting-edge pixie, and to say we were star-struck is an understatement. From red-hot hues to lengthy cuts, these celebs changed their locks and their looks with these tantalizing hair color and cut transformations.

As Coco Chanel once said, “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life,” and she was exactly right.
