A new look! Celebrities are always changing their hair color and, let’s be real, we’re living for it. Whether they chopped off all their gorgeous locks or dyed their hair a drastic new color, it’s always an exciting time. And although they always look fab, sometimes they can look so different with their new hairstyle that it can totally shock their fans!

Selena Gomez, for example, went blonde in 2017 and no one saw it coming. In fact, the transformation took nine hours to complete, according to Nine Zero One co-owner Riawna Capri on Instagram. “It was a nice long patient process of baby fine slices, then going back and opening each foil and reapplying, but done in one sitting.,” she wrote.

“Being that this was the first major color change Selena’s ever done, it was important to us that her hair remained healthy and the tone was right for her skin,” hairstylist Nikki Lee also told Us Weekly at the time. “The vibe is 90’s chic and she named the color #NirvanaBlonde.”

Similarly, Billie Eilish debuted a full head of blonde hair in March 2021! As it turned out, she actually had the new ‘do for a pretty long time before revealing it to fans. “This was in my drafts LOL my hair has blonde for like two months,” the singer wrote on TikTok alongside a video of her lifting a wig off her head. Boy, were we surprised by this total hair transformation!

And it turns out, they’re not the only ones to dye her hair platinum blonde. Stars like Alyson Stoner, Kendall Jenner, James Charles, ZendayaMiley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Zac Efron, Ariana Grande, Grayson Dolan and more have all tried out the look before. And since they’ve all also got naturally dark hair, they were all nearly unrecognizable with the new ‘dos.

Even naturally blonde stars like Taylor Swift, Dove Cameron and Gigi Hadid have given the platinum color a shot. Whether they originally had blonde hair or not, the bleached look is always dramatic — in the most fabulous way, of course. You know — we’re talkin’ that super chic blonde tone that is so bright, it sometimes almost looks white. Major platinum blonde transformations are of the most drastic, yet super fun, kinds of makeovers – if we do say so ourselves. And each and every one of them rocked the look beautifully, might we add.
