When your clients are searching for trending hair inspo, they’re on Instagram, they’re looking for headlines and they’re turning their heads directly to celebrities, who’s major hair changes have a significant impact on your chair and the hair landscape at large.
Whether you’re using these looks for your own personal creative inspiration or you’ve seen them on a screen as your clients point you to what they’re looking for many times this year, we thought we would go back through the celebrity hair year that was. Take stock of these 10 major celebrity hair changes in 2018, remember the hair moments and let us know your favourites!
1. Margot Robbie
Margot showed up to the Oscars with a brand new bob and was instantly on the best dressed list. This ultra-cool look is timeless and still a great option for your clients.
2. Cardi B
Cardi B’s VMA pixie cut certainly cut through the red carpet noise, sparking headlines and motivating your creative impulses.
3. Kim Kardashian West
Kim had a brief dalliance with bright pink hair earlier in the year, which was easily enough to make it officially trending.
4. Khloe Kardashian
The Kardashians are maybe the most notorious instigators of immediate hair trends and Khloe’s turn to platinum blonde just last week will be a go-to for your clients this season.
5. Solange Knowles
Solange gave us life with her blonde afro at the beginning of 2018 and everyone else has just been trying to keep up for the rest of 2018.
6. Ariana Grande
Ariana’s well publicised short hair look, a major change from her usual long locks, turned out to be a pivotal style in her ‘thank u, next’ video, in her parodical role as Jennifer Garner in Suddenly 30. That video has been viewed tens of millions of time and has defined the pop cultural setting of late 2018, so this shorter hair look is still super relevant.
7. Chrissy Teigen
A game changer on Twitter and as a style icon, Chrissy Teigen makes the list for this cute, new bob.
8. Sophie Turner
From her iconic red look to this cool blonde, this Wella Professionals ambassador showed the brilliance of salon-worthy colour.
9. Leighton Meester
It’s crazy to think this was 2018, but right at the beginning of the year Leighton Meester went blonde and we’re still in love with this different look for her.
10. Scarlett Johansson
A brunette pixie cut was the ideal choice for ScarJo, while traipsed the red carpet circuit for Avengers: Infinity Wars and provided plenty of short hair inspiration for your clients.
