2021 was quite a ride. From the crazy fashion and beauty trends that ruled TikTok to the aesthetic outfit combos and makeup looks that took Instagram by storm, it was a transformative year altogether. Celebrities in particular succumbed to trends and change up their looks more often than the regular person as an occupational hazard. They do, after all, want to look their very best on and off cam at all times.
That said, they can be an excellent source of inspo when looking for hair, makeup, and fashion pegs! A particular kind of celebrity makeover that always gets people talking is when a star changes up their hairstyle. True enough, getting a daring haircut or color is the easiest way to get a refreshing new look.
So if you’re wondering which celebs got the chicest hair transformations this 2021, look no further ‘cause we’ve rounded up the 10 faces that got head-turning makeovers that set DMs ablaze.
10 of the Coolest Celebrity Hair Makeovers of 2021
Think pink and so Sarah did! The actress shocked Instagram with this cotton-candy hue that was an unexpected choice for the style star. Sarah has been sporting her blonde or ash blonde balayage ‘dos over the years, so pink was definitely a welcome change that added a punch of fun to her look.

The Darna star just got her shortest haircut ever this year, and the internet was abuzz with the sudden snip that indicated that she was filming a new project. What we love about the cut its its textured ends that made it not your typical blunt lob.
The morena actress is known for her straight black hair but she finally decided to go out of her comfort zone and cut her hair into a lob with a light brown balayage. The style definitely added more texture and depth to her tresses, giving her a beach girl vibe!
The anime and BTS fan isn’t a stranger to eccentric hair transformations! For 2021, she went through quite a slew of bright haircolors that range from a hidden unicorn dye job to coloring her hair according to her favorite Sailor Moon characters. For now, she’s content with a purple fuchsia mix that we assume she donned for the BTS concert in LA last month.
Before leaving for her Spanish vacay, Sofia got her shortest snip yet: a chin-length bob! The low-maintenance style is sophisticated and frames her face beautifully. Proof that cutting your hair short might be the best decision you can make to elevate your look!
Sue Ramirez has been known to pull off any 'do with confidence. Though she did not go short this time around, the actress opted to try romantic waves and full bangs that made her look extra feminine and doll-like.
The wolf cut was all the rage in 2021, so it was no surprise that Lauren Reid tried an iteration of it herself. Though this was a short-lived (and not to well-documented) ‘do of hers, this Instagram post will convince you to try this unconventional layered cut if you feel like you need to add some edge to your look.
This year, Yassi Pressman opted to embrace her natural curls and we could not be happier! We love her lusciously wild locks that she rocked during her US trip earlier this year. She even dyed it a caramel brown to enhance its texture. So cute!
The young actress loves to change up her hair on the fly! Remember the time she dyed her hair just like BLACKPINK’s Jennie? Though she didn’t try any eye-catching new hair color this year, she did cut it short into a chic one-length bob.
Chunky highlights have finally comeback to mainstream prominence and Kathryn Bernardo was definitely at the forefront of that trend. Since Y2K is one of the biggest fashion trends as of late, it only makes sense that the hot beauty trend of that era would make a reappearance, too. We love how this fun and deliberately kitschy color enhances Kath’s gorgeous tan even more!
