Celeb Watch: 2018 Hair Roundup

From Emilia Clarke’s pixie cut to Ariana Grande’s high-voltage colour change; we’ve seen some truly incredible transformations take place this year. We’ve also seen some bold new looks from celebs like Cheryl and ex-corrie sweetheart Michelle Keegan who’s been sporting a super-voluminous new ‘do.

In fact, we think 2018 played host to some pretty amazing new styles and it seemed rude to let the year end without celebrating them! Whether you’re looking for some #inspo or just trying to keep up with the latest trends, this collection of our favourite styles should scratch the itch.

Michelle Keegan

Michelle’s always been blessed with gorgeous tresses, but it’s great to see her switch things up by cutting down on the length, and adding some choppy layers. The retro-inspired styling might not be your cup of tea, but styles like this tend to be incredibly versatile and we’re excited to see how she wears it in 2019. If you’re thinking of trying it out, remember that you can add mousse for instant volume, or straighten similar styles for a sleeker look.

Emilia Clarke


Emilia rocked this Cersei-inspired look back in September. After 8 years of hiding her naturally-brunette hair under a wig, it was great to see her finally go platinum blonde for real, and we love that she chose to up the ante further with such a distinctive pixie cut too. If you’re looking for the perfect example of a style transformation done right, look no further! We’re super excited to see how long (or short) she rocks it and we’ll be keeping a close eye on the Mother of Dragons in 2019.

Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa has always been a fan of the blunt bob. Way back in 2017, she sheared off  her long hair to host the Billboard awards with Ludacris, and this year she’s gone even more glam: combining striking bangs with a chic tousled bob that’s sure to turn heads. Vanessa seems to change up her hair every couple of months but we’re hoping this one sticks around for a while because it’s absolutely gorgeous and we’d love to see it catch on.



From towering up-dos to that classic, slicked-back ponytail, Cheryl has always been a step ahead when it came to ultra-glam hairstyles and this sleek new look certainly doesn’t disappoint. It’s a fairly radical departure from her trademark cascading bouncy curls but we’re certainly glad she made the change! If you’re looking for an elegant and sophisticated new ‘do, Cheryl’s new look is a great way to make a statement.

Kimberley Walsh


A couple of inches can make the world of difference. Case in point; Kimberley Walsh’s slick new style. This effortlessly-stylish take on the lob does wonders for her look and we can’t get enough of its sleek waves. The subtle ombre gives it tonnes of depth too. If you’re done with your current style and you’re looking for an exciting way to spice up your look without shearing off every last inch, Kimberly’s new style makes for good #inspo!

Ariana Grande

Ariana’s experimented with colour before, but we didn’t expected her to go grey! Ditching her trademark ponytail, she debuted this bold new style on Instagram and as you might expect, the internet went crazy for it! We love grey hair and we’re glad to see Arianna getting on the bandwagon. If you’re thinking of doing the same, make sure you use a good colour protect shampoo because grey hair is not easy to maintain! But her 2018 transformation didn’t end there. In true “Thank U, Next” style the pop star clearly moved onto the next phase of her life — and did so with a selfie showing off her shorter hair. We LOVE how this sophisticated look has been given a playful upgrade. 

Kylie Jenner

We’d be crazy to leave Kylie off this list; she’s the ultimate color chameleon and 2018 was no different. We saw her jump from pink to platinum, peach to jet black and everything in between. Rumour has it her pregnancy made her fall in love with a more natural look and she’s stuck to switching between brunette and blonde in recent months as supposed to her trademark neon hues. Despite her move to a more natural look picking an ‘ultimate’ Kylie restyle is no mean feat. There are literally hundreds to choose from and it’s hard to say which one we liked the most. Maybe you could help us out? What was your favourite Kylie colour this year?
