Sometimes, people need a change, especially when it comes to a haircut they’ve had for years. Thankfully, there are some gorgeous celebrities with amazing looks to gain inspiration.
From Zoe Kravitz’s pixie cut and JLo’s long bob to Sandra Oh’s layers and face frame, here are some celebrity haircuts people should think about copying.
Jennifer Lopez’s Lob
Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez has been known to change up her hair from long curls to a signature slicked-back bun. But one of her best looks is arguably her long shoulder-length bob (a lob, if you will).
Straight and glossy, this look gives her a modern flair and really lets her gorgeous skin tone shine.
Kristen Bell’s Tiny Trim
The Good Place star Kristen Bell has always had a shorter hair length. And she proves that even the tiniest cut can go a long way.
Going from a shoulder-length side-parted lob to a middle-part bob was just the change Bell needed to accentuate her features and look a bit more sophisticated.
Sandra Oh’s Curly Layers And Bangs
As curly-haired people might know, hairstylists tend to talk them out of getting bangs. It never seems to be a style that works out quite right. Well, actress Sandra Oh begs to differ.
The actress went ahead and layered her curls, added a face frame, and decided to go for some bangs that look absolutely fantastic.
Emma Roberts’s Blonde Locks
The American Horror Story star isn’t afraid of drastic hair-dye jobs. Emma Roberts can go from brunette to blonde and still look absolutely amazing. It is actually a fantastic idea for anyone bored with their hair color.
Switching up color can give a look, a breath of fresh air and a person a totally new outlook on life!
Zoe Kravitz’s Close-Cut Pixie
A spitting image of her mother, Lisa Bonet, actress Zoe Kravitz was known for having the same long hairstyle, complete with braids and dreadlocks. But, sometimes, Kravitz does her own thing, and it does wonders!
Her short pixie cut is a wonderful option for hot summers, keeping long locks off a person’s neck!
Saoirse Ronan’s Baby Bangs
While bangs aren’t for everyone, they are a great way to change their look. Academy Award-nominated actress Saoirse Ronan is the perfect example. Going from a shaggy lob, the actress did something drastic, bypassing typical wispy bangs and going for a shorter look with some baby bangs.
In photos, she looks a bit older and ready to take on the world.
Sophie Turner’s Natural Blonde Hair With A Fresh Cut
When people first heard of Sophie Turner, she was sporting the red hair of Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones. Then, she joined the cast of X-Men, again wearing her hair a deep red.
A lot of people had no idea Turner’s natural hair color is actually blonde, something the actress decided to go back to once her contracts were up. Hey, there is nothing wrong with sprucing up a natural color! Especially if it’s paired with a fresh cut.
January Jones’s Modern Style
Mad Men star January Jones is known for her retro, old Hollywood glam hairstyle, complete with sleek waves framing her face. Having the same style for a long time, though, makes people want change.
In Jones’s case, the change came in the form of a lob, a very modern hairstyle compared to her signature look.
Lisa Kudrow’s Sleek Lob
Fans of Lisa Kudrow might be sued to seeing the Friends actress with her signature long blonde hair, a very Phoebe style. Recently, though, the actress decided to chop off a few inches!

Kerry Washington’s Beach Wave Lob

Adding in dirty blonde highlights completes the look.
Halle Berry’s Healthy Trim And Curtain Bangs
From a short pixie to long layers, actress Halle Berry has done it all! But this particular style is fresh and makes the actress look younger.

Emilia Clarke’s Brunette Waves
Emilia Clarke said goodbye to Daenerys Targaryen’s bleach blonde hair from Game of Thrones, a cut that was pretty much down to the actress’s waist. Here, so looks adorable with a fresh cut and color.
Swapping blonde from brunette, Clarke opted for a lovely shoulder-length cut with some layers and waves.
Reese Witherspoon’s Bob
Reese Witherspoon went from the girl next door in Legally Blonde with her long blonde curls to a sophisticated woman with a sleek bob. Understandably, cutting off that much length can be heart-stopping. It is a major change!

Claire Foy’s Extra Length
Interestingly, Claire Foy did the opposite of a haircut. Known for her pageboy haircut, Foy went ahead and grew her hair out to her shoulders. While the style is simple, it is a huge change for the actress.
For those with short hair, growing it out is a nice change, especially during colder months where a bit of length is great for some extra warmth.
