Let's face it, celebrities switch up their hair with about the same regularity that I declare "I need a snack"—that is to say pretty frequently. This year though, there's been an absolute wave of A-listers embracing more drastic hair change and opting for the chop. In fact, I'd say that the bob might just be the trending hairstyle of 2019 so far.
But alongside getting scissor happy, celebrities are embracing colour switch-ups, pixie cuts and we've even got a new redhead or two. One of our most recent favourites was Bella Hadid who decided to go from almost black to blonde. Kendall Jenner opted to do the same and changed her trademark brunette to blonde—something we never thought we'd see but we all agree it looks incredible on her.
As we're now three-quarters of the way through 2019, it's clear that this is set to be a year of major celebrity hair transformation.

Sure, plenty of brunettes go blonde. But Kendall Jenner? I'd never though I'd see the day. Which is why I almost didn't recognise her when she strutted down the Burberry catwalk during London Fashion Week this September.
Whether she's been blonde or brunette, Kim K's long hair is part of her trademark. So when she stepped out last month with a sleek, glossy lob, heads turned. A timeless style, I love Kim's new, shorter hair—she might have even persuaded me to go for a chop myself.
Lily Allen is no stranger to hair transformations—she's been brunette, bleach blonde and experimented with colours like pink and lavender. Her latest foray into life as a red head is the one that I'm most into though. So. Chic.
It might have been more of a one night only kind of thing but I had to include Laura Harrier's Met Gala hair transformation amongst my favourite looks of the year so far. Harrier usually rocks flowing beach waves so her bleached pixie cut was a real cool-girl departure.
The bob is definitely emerging as the A-list hairstyle of choice when they're embracing a new look. Lily James's sleek, sharp bob came courtesy of hairdresser John MacPherson and feels fresh and modern.
Another hair chameleon, Kerry Washington is a master of switching up her style from long ponytails and mid-length waves to pixie cuts and her latest switch to the tousled bob. I love how volumised this short cut is.
