2015 has been a colourful, surprising year… and we’re not referring to global politics here.
Naturally, the celebrities of the world have been leading the charge, so we’ve decided to look back on the chops and dye jobs that surprised, inspired and bemused us. Starting with…
For a member of the Royal Family, K-Middy was rather adventurous on the hair front. Not as adventurous as Nicole Richie, say, but the Duchess still managed to hit a trifecta: a lighter colour, followed by a fringe, and then the chop. It’s not exactly a lob, but it’s close enough. Who knows what 2016 could hold — a buzzcut, perhaps?
2015 will forever be known as The Year The Bingle Bob Died. A year or so after her flipped-over bob hit certified #hairgoals status, Worthington moved the goalposts once again with a shorter, choppier cut that took us all by surprise. It's still beachy, but it's a little more '90s supermodel (in the best possible way).
J-Law is no stranger to a big hair change (hello, pixie chop) and in 2015, she once again volunteered as tribute. This time it was all in the colour — eradicating all remaining traces of Katniss Everdeen, Lawrence embraced a creamy platinum blonde with a blunt long bob in October. The whole combination is just painfully cool.
Ha! You thought this was an exclusively female list, didn't you? Jared Leto's long mermaid hair was chopped off during the filming of Suicide Squad, leaving the world reeling. Goodbye, glorious man bun. Thankfully, formerly short-haired Matt Damon grew a ponytail, so the balance of the universe has been restored.
Those are just the tip of the hair transformations ice berg. Click through the gallery below to see other A-list cuts, colours and re-styles that surprised us... and prompted us to call our own hairdressers.
