KIM KARDASHIAN

"She wanted to make a drastic change," Kim's colorist George Papanikolas told PEOPLE. And that's exactly what she got, leaving behind her chestnut locks for this honey-blonde ombré look.

KELLY OSBOURNE

"Just cut a fringe aka bangs what do you guys think? I love them!!!” the star posted on Instagram, along with a selfie of her updated lavender do. And with 31,000-plus hearts on the photo, we'd say her fans approve.

HAYDEN PANETTIERE

We have to be blunt with Hayden: These are some very, very blunt bangs. The Nashville actress must have used a level to get thick fringe this straight.

JENNIFER HUDSON

Jennifer changes her hair as frequently as other people's moods change. She briefly strayed from her long locks and experimented with an asymmetrical crop at the VMAs. (She's since gone back to long, though.)

JENNIFER GARNER

The actress may have cut bangs for her role in Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, but we don't think there's anything about the fringe that's terrible, horrible, no good or very bad, especially since some say it makes her look younger.

LISA OSBOURNE

Kelly wasn't the only Osbourne to switch things up. "My first thought was, 'Holy crap, I hope Jack [Osbourne] likes it,'" Lisa told PEOPLE of her decision to go supershort. Luckily, her famous husband is a total fan: "He loves me with any type of short hair."

BEYONCÉ

It was a whirlwind week for the star. She ignited #shorthairdontcare fever when she lost her long waves and debuted a pixie. A hot minute later, she transformed her mane into an inverted bob, perhaps trying to start a new trending topic, #slightlylongerhairdontcareeither?

VANESSA HUDGENS

Is she suffering from Seasonal Confusion Disorder? While the rest of the world goes from summery ombré to darker, Vanessa does the opposite, ditching her natural brunette color for sun-kissed highlights on the ends.

SHAILENE WOODLEY

"I am in tears," she shared post-chop. But it's not for reasons you'd expect. The actress donated what she cut off to the Children With Hair Loss charity, and she cried after hearing the ways her strands would be put to use.

ASHLEY GREENE

Baby steps. That's how Ashley went from the rich brunette shade to her current honey-blonde color (making a pit stop at reddish-brown on the way).

COCO ROCHA

Next time your hairstylist says, "Can I get you anything? Water? Coffee? Tea? Coco?" be careful how you answer since The Coco refers to the supermodel who just lobbed off lots of length, resulting in a funky pixie.

CIARA

In the latest chapter of the Ciara Hair Diaries, the hair chameleon says goodbye to her chin-length ombré lob for a chestnut-hued, past-the-shoulders style with face-framing angles. Will she stick with this look all the way through fall? Doubtful.

The Queen Bey reminds us she's totally fierce (we didn't really need a reminder), cutting those long blonde waves into a chic pixie. So, which look runs your world?

RIHANNA

We had a feeling the hair chameleon's gray moment wouln't last long. RiRi went back to brunette and lost some serious length, debuting a short chop, which showcases her natural curls. “Still tryna get used to my hurr," she shared on Instagram.

EMMA STONE

Wonder if Andrew Garfield is getting jealous of all the time his girlfriend has been spending with her hairstylist. After leaving those Gwen Stacy blonde locks behind and returning to red, the actress chopped her tresses into an on-trend lob.

JADA PINKETT SMITH

"I'm love'n my new do," Jada gushed on her Facebook page, where she sultrily showed off the asymmetrical cut and ombré highlights. Think she can still whip it with Willow?

JULIANNE MOORE

There was a collective sigh heard 'round the PEOPLE offices when the redhead ditched her signature fiery shade for this allover dye job. But the actress's venture into blonde territory is for an upcoming role in the new flick Maps to the Stars, so it's likely temporary (phew).

ROSARIO DAWSON

It may seem super-dramatic, but Rosario's half-shaved hairstyle went unnoticed by "most people" for months, the actress told PEOPLE. But when people did take note, what was their reaction? "Everyone says it's going to grow out really badly," she added.

JESSICA ALBA

There's no trend Jessica won't try, and that includes of-the-moment blunt bangs, which she's rocking for her role in Dear Eleanor. And like with most of the trends she sports, we're tempted to follow her lead.

RIHANNA

Most women pay to hide their grays, but RiRi pays to get 'em. "Call it #Brr," the singer shared on Instagram along with a snap of the cool shade she's testing out, a dramatic transformation from her previous warm ombré look.

“Officially decided that June is crazy hair month," the singer Tweeted right before adding long extensions to the other side of her shaved pixie. She added, "No fear!" – exactly what you need to pull off a look like this.

DIANNA AGRON

After a brief stint as a redhead, the Glee actress apparently decided that being blonde is where it's at and went back to her roots, lightening up her locks just in time for summer.

JANUARY JONES

She revealed that her hair was falling out due to too many dye jobs, but luckily the actress found a gentler way to make a change: by adding wispy fringe to her short cut.

LAUREN CONRAD

Gasp! The woman who practically hasn't touched her hair (except to put it up in a ballerina bun, natch) since Laguna Beach shocked us by getting bangs.

JAIME PRESSLY

Perhaps Jaime follows Pink on Twitter because the actress clearly prescribes to the theory that June is "crazy hair month" too. She shed her long layers – for an above-the-chin bob with sleek side-swept bangs, saying, "I luv it!"

ANNA KENDRICK

The casual observer might have missed Anna's slow color transition. That's because her strawberry-blonde status didn't happen overnight, but rather came after a series of salon visits, which left her lighter and lighter.

CHRISSY TEIGEN

Normally everything Chrissy does on social media makes us LOL, but when the previously brunette model posted an Insta shot of her highlights, our reaction was to call our colorists and see when they could fit us in.

JORDIN SPARKS

Curly hair and bangs? It's a hard style to pull off, but so far we're loving the look on Jordin (and hoping the fresh fringe is permanent, not clip-ins).

CIARA

The singer chops a few inches off her shoulder-length tresses, morphing her mane into an edgy bob, which flatters her striking facial features.

VICTORIA BECKHAM

Her extensions aren't so posh anymore. The designer switches up her nearly waist-skimming waves for a shorter look that barely reaches her shoulders.

KERRY WASHINGTON

Sure, it's most likely just temporary, but we're sorta hoping the Scandal star keeps these purple streaks, which she got to coordinate with her stunning Vera Wang gown for the Met Gala.

The Hollywood mom took baby steps to get here, but the patience paid off! She slowly transitioned (with multiple appointments, the last one taking five hours) from brunette to platinum blonde.

JENNIFER LAWRENCE

The Hollywood hair chameleon transforms her mane once again, this time chopping her long tresses into a lob. With all of her recent change-ups, we wouldn't be surprised if the actress were to go for a pixie next. (We dare you, J.Law!)

When the actress first chopped her hair, she "wanted to go shorter," and it looks like she finally got what she wanted with this post-breakup bob.

Yes, this is the same person. The singer shaved her head for charity and (as if that weren't a big enough change), went from brunette to bleach blonde.

SOFIA VERGARA

The world may know the actress as a brunette bombshell, but in fact, Sofia's recent blonde ambitions are a return to her natural color, which she originally changed because "It didn't match the Hollywood stereotype for a Latina woman."

BRITNEY SPEARS

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again? Britney darkens her hair yet again (she did it once in 2006, once in 2007, twice in 2009), this time earning rave reviews when she debuted her new chestnut hue at an Oscars after-party.
