Celebrity Hair Transformations 2016:

One of the best Hairstyles of 2016, Lauren Conrad’s makeover by Kristin Ess was thinned out and made shorter by using a razor, carefully ensuring it blended in with the rest of her hair. She also gave some hairstyling advice, “We didn’t cut much of anything off the length—we really just layered into it.”

Ruby rose’s magenta hair paired well with her short bob. She credited her hairstylist, Brant Mayfield for her look on Instagram and received ‘likes’ from over 290,000 fans and followers.
Emma Stone’s pixie haircut was featured on the cover of Vogue and looked chic. Done in honey blonde, she sported it with a striped sweater and aqua eyes.

Jessica Chastain of The Huntsman: Winter’s War fame, recently shortened her lob into a bob. The asymmetrical bob was styled into many different ways, allowing the actress to flaunt it with various outfits. For the L.A. premiere, she pinned it to one side with a little twist. The MTV Movie Awards saw her hair styled in big, crimpy waves while a deep side part gave her hair a lot of character at yet another event. Jessica Chastain’s haircut was also textured and styled in smaller waves as she walked the red carpet recently.

Best Hairstyle’s of 2017:

Katie Holmes’s new haircut features straight, long bangs along with her brunette locks. The actress sported her new hairdo with a checkered dress and a long black coat. Katie was in New York to promote her upcoming directorial debut, All We Had when she showed-off her choppy new fringe.

Amber Heard’s hair makeover was another shocking transformation and probably one of the best hairstyles. Her long, blonde mane was chopped into a short, shoulder-length coiffure. Her loose locks were still kept long to frame her face, adding subtleness and grace.

Best Hair Secrets:

Cindy Crawford loves using Kevin Murphy Hydrate-Me Wash shampoo and Rinse conditioner and Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Eaze for her hair. To add texture and eliminate fizz, she resorts to Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment and Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray.

Brooke Shields, known for her healthy mane advises using Davines Ol Shampoo, Ol Conditioner and the All in One Milk as a leave-in conditioner. She also recommends using OI Absolute Beautifying Potion to calm frizz and add shine. Brooke uses a wand-curling iron to create beachy waves or a simple blow-dry for an everyday look.

Veronica Webb uses Pantene Pro-V Curl Perfection Conditioner after a good rinse and Oribe Signature Moisture Masque for extra hydration. Since she has curly dry hair, she avoids shampooing it too often.
