Charlize Theron's New Bowl Cut Is Giving Us Major Hair Envy

So here’s the tea: 2019 has been a damn good year—for celebrity hair. Hollywood heads that have always been draped in long extensions are finally going the way of sleek bobs; folks are letting their natural curls flow freely; and colorists are doing really interesting, bold things with their clients’ manes. We are more inspired by the chic celebrity hair transformations we’ve seen halfway through 2019 than we have in the past several years combined. So we rounded up some of the best ones.

Below, find our curated list of the best new celebrity haircuts and dye jobs. May these before and after shots serve as inspo for your next in-salon move. Oh, and be sure to bookmark this page because we’ll be updating the list in real time as soon as we catch wind of a new celebrity hair look. But in the meantime, here are our faves.

Charlize Theron

Alert: Charlize Theron has a bowl cut now. The star has been pretty consistent with her mid-length, shaggy lob over the last few years, but it looks like she's ushering in fall with an ultra-chic, multi-tone blonde chop.

Even though her younger sister Kylie is the one better known for head-turning hair moments, we couldn't help notice (and immediately screenshot) Kendall Jenner's major blonde moment while walking Burberry's London Fashion Week show. Interestingly, not all the models debuted blonde hair, so we're left wondering if Jenner's new look is more permanent than a quick flick of a wig backstage. Regardless, we're into it.

Um, hello chicness. Yesterday, January Jones debuted this sleek summery bob by her hairstylist, Bridget Brager, who captioned her Instagram post of the cut with "Welp, we finally did it! … @januaryjones has sent me #bluntbob hair inspiration pics for months!! We've been waiting for her (old) bangs to grow long enough to give that perfect blunt bob, middle part look. Patience."

Kiersey Clemons

Forever a hair chameleon, Kiersey Clemons can pull off anything. We are living for her newest look: a super-short blonde crop, which she just debuted on her Instagram with the tennis ball emoji. Accurate!

Kim Kardashian West

Sensing a trend? Kim Kardashian West had onlookers shook when she stepped out last week donning a blunt bob much like January Jones's. A breezy, low-maintenance cut to go with her new-mom life. 

Logan Browning

We are loving how natural-hair icon Logan Browning, star of Netflix's freaky new thriller The Perfection, is growing out her curls. Check out how much progress she's made since January of this year. (Click to watch a Vogue video of how the actress masters her signature bouncy curl pop.)

Sophie Turner

We've never seen Games of Thrones star Sophie Turner with bangs before, but now that we have, we don't even remember what she looked like without them. Her hairstylist, Christian Wood, really nailed this one. 

Halle Berry

Undercuts are a subtle way to switch up your hair look. Halle Berry is proof: In May, the 52-year-old icon arrived at the screening of her new film, John Wick, wearing a messy topknot and creative, wavy new undercut by her genius stylist, Ohre Kilpatrick.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner has been known to play with faux bangs, and we are fans of it every time. (They add a certain vintage, East Coast vibe to her Cali-girl look.) She wore this sleek pony with short, blunt fringe to E!'s upfront event in NYC this May.

Billie Eilish

Teen music wunderkind Billie Eilish has been rocking different shades of blue since she rose to fame in 2017, but we're really digging the new dark gray. 

Priyanka Chopra

Since earlier this year, Priyanka Chopra has darkened the ombré color she'd been sporting and added some extensions.

Ariel Winter

Whomst is this chic redhead? Modern Family star Ariel Winter or Ariel from The Little Mermaid? We stan this drastic hair color transformation, which happened in early May. The coppery hue (achieved by Tabitha Dueñas at Nine Zero One salon in Los Angeles) really brightens up the 21-year-old's overall look.

Irene Kim

Model Irene Kim is known for sporting bold hair colors (maroon was her shade of choice for most of this year), but the jet black is a surprising, dare we say elegant, departure. And in that tight, low pony with a middle part? So polished. 

Hari Nef

Model/actress Hari Nef's hair was dark brunette for the longest time, until she went full Brigitte Bardot with a creamy blonde color in 2017. This year, she's exploring more of the color wheel. This auburn hue matched with the long, wavy style and bangs is so '70s groovy.
