11 of the best celebrity hair transformations of 2018

New hair, who this?

By BTYB Fudge

Shopping around for your next beauty look? There's nothing like a brand new hairstyle to give your style a refresh and your confidence a boost.

Whether you're contemplating a fringe, adding in some layers or looking for a bit of colour inspiration (thinking pink? Julia Roberts has you covered), we've rounded up the very best celebrity hair transformations of 2018 to give you some guidance.

Leighton Meester

We may have come to know and love her as the brunette Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl, but Leighton Meester spent much of her time in 2018 as a bleached blonde. Getting back to her darker roots, Meester recently reverted to her brunette self, for a look we think is our favourite of hers to date.

Keeping brunette shades vibrant ain't always as easy as it seems (we're looking at you orange and red tones) so if you're planning on rocking a darker shade — or maintaining one — we recommend Fudge's Cool Brunette Blue Toning Shampoo & Conditioner.

Shailene Woodley

The Big Little Lies star swapped her blonde locks for brown this year, and provided us with some serious front-fringe inspo. Scared to try bangs? Opt for longer lengths like Woodley's that are able to be pinned back.

Keira Maguire

Keira Maguire (aka The Bachelor villain we've come to love) has grown-out her hair and switched up her side-swept lob for a lighter, longer look with face-framing highlights. The result? Gorgeous.

Julianne Hugh

Julianne Hugh has a new edgy 'do! A true colour chameleon, the actress is constantly changing up her hair shade. This time, she's gone for a bold honey-blonde bob, and we are in love.

Kate Hudson

Growing out a hairstyle can be risky business but trust Kate Hudson to make it look chic! The actress has worked a brunette buzz-cut, blonde crop and chin-length lob all in the space of 12 months.

Brooke Blurton

Ah, the one that got away — we'll call this the revenge look. A hot favourite to take home Nick Cummins' heart on this year's The Bachelor, Brooke Blurton moved on from all the TV drama with a beautiful new hairstyle. We'll take one of what she's having (plus those washboard abs).

Alexandra Nation

When we first met Alex Nation on Richie Strahan's series of The Bachelor, the mum-of-one had long blond locks. Fast-forward to 2018, and Alex is our Instagram go-to for sleek crops and bold new styles. If you've got short hair, follow her now.

Emma Watson

Light, dark, pixie cuts — is there any style Emma Watson can't rock? This year Emma embraced her darker side, working Audrey Hepburn-esque bangs with a chocolate brown shade. Wingardi-YES.

Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts has trialled all sorts of hairstyles/colours over the years and 2018 was no different. The Notting Hill actress gave her platinum blonde a subtle pink tinge and we couldn't be more on board.

Jessica Chastain

She may have kept her signature colour the same (and we would too if we has this gorgeous red shade) but actress Jessica Chastain changed things up in 2018 with a fresh chin-length chop. Stunning.

Priyanka Chopra

For her role in the upcoming romantic comedy Isn't It Romantic?, Priyanka Chopra traded in her dark brown locks for a lighter style. Ever wanted to try the balayage look? Take the actress' image in and get your hairdresser to copy, ASAP.
