Today is National Hair Day, and what better time than now to take a look at the hair transformations that have inspired us. With wigs dominating the hair scene in 2019, this year has been the perfect opportunity to try out-of-the-box hairstyles and experiment with various lengths, colors, and textures. Celebrities have taken to the hair trend like wildfire, and we can’t keep up with their ever-changing hairdos. Although, we can recall a few standout styles that made us go ‘wow.’ If you’ve been stuck in a hair rut, draw inspiration from the celebrity hair transformations we’ve rounded up in the gallery below.


This summer, Ciara made our jaws drop when she debuted this short crop on Instagram. She captioned the photo “Chop it awf,” which lead many of us to believe that Cici lopped away her locks. But as it turns out, the pretty pixie was actually a wig.

When Beyoncé sports dark hair, that’s typically a sign that new music is on the way. In January, Queen Bey traded her blond tresses for dark and sexy strands, and six month later, she blessed with Brown Skin Girls, a bop off of The Lion King: The Gift album that celebrates our magnificent melanin.

China McClain

One of the Black Lightening actress’s superpowers is transforming her tresses. We usually see China McClain in cosplay, but this summer she revealed her beautiful big chop, and we can’t get over how strikingly gorgeous she looks.

Amber Rose

It’s not unusual for women to experience changes to their hair during pregnancy. But it was odd to see Amber Rose in black hair. The model and actress swapped her signature blond hue, and blessed us with this bold hairdo.  

Gabrielle Union

Gabrielle Union is a hair chameleon, this we know, but we’ve never seen her transform her tresses quite like this. She went blond recently and looked smoking hot in the new hue.  


For the record, Lizzo is one hundred percent our beauty inspiration. She effortlessly pulls of the edgiest looks, and she had us shook when she debuted this vibrant purple coif.
