30 Best Celebrity Hairstyles of 2016
Can’t get enough of all these year-end countdowns? Then here’s another one for you to reminisce the best things that happened in fashion last 2016! Truly, 2016 opened its doors to more hairstyle adventures as proven by social media, Instagram in particular. From very magical unicorn dyes to eccentric haircuts – what used to be weird have become mainstream last year! While these types of hairstyles ruled social media last year, there’s still no doubt that the classics (with a bit of twist, of course) still ruled the runways and the red carpet as well. In this article, we are going to list all the best hairstyles and hair transformations that celebrities flaunted last year.
Short hairstyles, particularly boyish crops can be quite a risk for those who used to perfectly flaunt long tresses. As for Zendaya, she gave the usual boy cut a vibrant golden blonde shade that made it a total win!
#2 Solange Knowles
When it comes to embracing her natural curls, Solange showed how to do it in high fashion style. With a blunt chopped shoulder-length haircut, she had her curls naturally form its flattering shape that gave more definition to her facial features.
#3 Shay Mitchell
Nothing beats a shaggy layered cut for dark hair colors such as Shay Mitchell’s black hair. Her hairstyle featured a subtly wet and messy look parted on the middle. Shay has a very prominent jaw line in which having one side of her hair tucked behind her ear enhanced that natural feature.
#4 Selena Gomez
It’s not really new to see Selena Gomez in a straight blowout. However, we can’t still overlook the fact that her hairstyle last year still had millions of her followers to swoon over her. With her gorgeous Olive brown hair color and silky straight blowout, we can conclude that her hairstyle is one of the best ones last year.
#5 Sarah Hyland
Of course, we can’t even skip lobs when talking about popular hairstyles of 2016! There is no doubt that lobs (long bobs) have become immensely popular among celebrities. One of the best most stylish yet very simple lobs is this one that Sarah Hyland donned. Center part and semi-messy waves – chic! read more here – Celebrity Style: 15 Best Bob and Lob Hairstyles
#6 Salma Hayek
Fresh beach waves in a medium chopped hairstyle is what embraces Salma Hayek’s chocolate brown locks. Her haircut is best described as sexy and sultry with the more prominent section brushed to one side; hence partly grazing the other side of her face more dominantly. It’s quite a great match for Salma’s beautiful facial features.
Rihanna took a break from all her sleek straight cuts, braids and ponytails last year as she transforms her hairdo into a much classic and high fashion look. Looking sexy in her short bob featuring a messy bedhead hairdo, Rihanna truly had all eyes on her on the Billboard Music Awards last year.
#8 Rachel McAdams
Messy lob on the red carpet? Why not! Rachel McAdams flaunted her gorgeously messy lob in style as she fills up her subtle waves with enormous volume and texture. She also had a section of her fringe partly waved out to slightly graze over her left eye.
#9 Melissa McCarthy
We also have to give Melissa McCarthy credits, not only to her fun and successful films last year but also for her gorgeous hairstyles. One in particular is this medium length haircut with its ends softly curled to perfection.
#10 Lucy Hale
Well, we know Lucy Hale’s beautiful vampy makeup here deserves the commendation but let’s give credit where it’s due – her stunning hairstyle! Her multidimensional golden blonde locks is just too mesmerizing for words and her haircut, which apparently is a perfectly grown bob.
#11 Kristen Stewart
Of all Kristen Stewart’s hairstyles all throughout the years, we must say that her 2016 platinum blonde hairstyle is the best one so far. Her short haircut blends perfectly well with her striking new hair color making it look quite edgy and high fashion. It explains why she perfectly matches Chanel’s new rouge campaign as well.
#12 Kirsten Dunst
Kirsten Dunst donned a deep side part with soft waves as she walks the Emmy’s red carpet. With one side done neatly in a slick behind-the-ear tuck and the other flowing gorgeously in soft, volumionous waves, Kirsten truly rocked her sexy evening dress that night. Very red-carpet worthy!
#13 Khloe Kardashian
2016 is definitely the year of the lobs! Kourtney flaunts a flattering lob featuring effortlessly messy waves that genuinely glides between a perfect bedhead and a high fashion hairdo. One thing is for sure, this beautiful lob is quite a versatile hairstyle. Tie it up in a ponytail or have it flaunt its natural downdo and it’s just as stunning.
#14 Kendall Jenner
We usuallu see the Kardashians and the Jenners in their lustrous long locks, but last year, apart from Khloe, Kendall also embraced a hairstyle change by sporting a similar lob. The length enhances her supermodel features such as her angular jaws, long neck and sexy collarbones.
#15 Karlie Kloss
As a supermodel, we’ve seen Karlie Kloss flaunted several hairstyles. Although despite all those hairstyles, she still wins everyone with her signature medium-length haircut done in subtle and natural waves.
#16 Jennifer Lawrence
When we think about jennifer Lawrence, it’s either we remember her in her boyish pixie haircut or her rebellious braids as Katniss Everdeen. Last year though, she wowed everyone with a new A-line bob that featured gentle cascading ends. Quite elegant and therefore one of the best hairstyles she ever had.
#17 Jennifer Hudson
We love Jennifer Hudson’s edgy short haircut! The hairstyle is quite minimal and its full straight-cut bangs gave depth to the whole look. It’s one of those hairstyles that can be quite difficult to pull off but Jennifer manged to flaunt it in fashion.
#18 Jenna Dewan – Tatum
Channing’s sizzling wife went all glam with her layered bob and angled fringe. What even made it sexier is how she style it by messing the waves up a bit; making the look quite stunning but effortless.
#19 Halle Berry
There’s something really gorgeous about a messy hairdo and another Hollywood A-lister who perfectly showed it off is no other than Halle Berry. She donned a messy hairdo for her angled bob and had her fringe form full faux bangs.
#20 Hailey Baldwin
If you think the fascination over “The Rachel” haircut ended several years ago, think again. Hailey Baldwin showed everyone how to rock such iconic haircut – 2016 style. The hairstyle featured flattering layers that goes straight and voluminous to give the look more depth and style.
#21 Gwen Stefani
It’s been a while since Gwen Stefani got rid of her iconic long hair that went on for decades. And for that, we’re quite happy with the change she sported last year. Here’s another glorious take on the stylish lob as Gwen struts it in sleek straight hairstyle.
#22 Gina Rodriguez
Gina successfully pulls off an edgy undercut as she showed up on the red carpet last year. While we all know her as the girly long-haired lady from “Jane the Virgin”, Gina took the risk with this edgy boy cut featuring a shaggy angled bob on one side.
# 23 Gabrielle Union
What’s not to adore in Gabrielle’s voluminously soft waves? She flaunted a blunt chop featuring soft and shiny waves to perfectly complement her beautiful features.
#24 Eva Longoria
Eva Longoria’s multidimensional dye that fades from chocolate brown to golden blonde is quite a fabulous take on her angled haircut. In addition, this style also complements her enviably gorgeous olive skin tone.
#25 Christina Hendricks
We believe that one of the most stunning hairstyles in this list goes to Christina Hendricks. Her striking auburn hair is just an immediate head turner! Plus, the hairstyle’s voluminous built and cascading layers perfectly suits Christina’s features.
#26 Chrissy Teigen
We were all enchanted when Chrissy flaunted a gorgeous blunt bob a few years ago, but as her bob grows, her hairstyle becomes more and more enviable! This growing lob hairstyle featuring sectioned subtle waves definitely deserves a spot in this list.
#27 Cara Delevingne
The supermodel is quite known for her fascinating fashion sense so there’s no doubt that she flaunts gorgeous hairstyles just as well. Another celebrity to join the lob bandwagon last year is supermodel Cara and yes, she flaunted it with style and edge with her effortlessly textured hairdo.
#28 Ariana Grande
Of course, how can we miss Ariana Grande in this list! She’s one of the most talked about artists last year and she had the 90’s high ponytail make a glorious comeback. Not only that, we must say that her blunt full bangs had become quite iconic as well.
#29 America Ferrera
It was quite a serious change for the “Ugly Betty” star to go for a short hairstyle such as the one she flaunted last year. She donned a short angled bob with streaks of blonde hues and totally nailed it!
#30 Amanda Seyfried
One great way to hide your fringe is to do it the Amanda Seyfried way. She made the look quite dainty and simple without too much fuss needed to beautify her hairstyle.
