Celebrity Hairstyles: 6 Style Icons sans Their Signature Looks

Posted by Peter Buijs on

So many celebrity hairstyles!

Style icons often have signature looks that contribute to their personal brand. Favourite choices seem to be certain shades of lipsticks or trendy women’s hairstyles. Whatever it is, they’re rarely ever seen without it.

Which is why we may have to take a second look upon seeing these celebs sans their signature look. Check them out!

Amber Rose

Former stripper and current model, actress, and fashion designer is known for flaunting her voluptuous curves and platinum-blond buzzcut. In one Dancing with the Stars episode she surprised everyone by wearing sporting a shoulder-length brown wig styled in a half-updo.

Emma Stone

At the 2016 Met Gala, Emma Stone ditched her natural blonde hair and her signature red locks to opt for a brunette asymmetrical hairstyle. She paired the hairstyle with dark smokey eyes and a nude lip.

Zooey Deschanel

When it comes to celebrity hairstyles, the New Girl star is rarely ever seen without the straight-cut bangs that are largely responsible for her youthful appearance. Here’s one of the very few instances where she looks unrecognizable after opting to ditch the bangs: at the 2013 Met Gala.

Lupita Nyong’o

When you think of Kenyan American actress and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, you probably picture her with her signature short hair. However, when she attended the Disney D23 Expo in 2015 to promote her two upcoming blockbusters she arrived with a longer hairstyle.

Reese Witherspoon

As the star of Legally Blonde, it’s hard to imagine Reese Witherspoon without her light blonde hair. In 2004, she attended the Venice Film Festival with rich chocolate hair that surprisingly still suited her!

Tilda Swinton

The British blonde traded in her signature edgy, androgynous look for a more ‘conventional’ style – at least, for her role in 2015 film Trainwreck. To achieve the look she sported a glowing tan, a full face of makeup, and a blond wig with soft waves.

As you can see, it’s surprisingly easy to change your look just by trying on different styles. Iconic looks are not limited to celebrities, and plenty of ‘ordinary’ people (like you and me!) often have them as well. You may already have a go-to style aspect that has developed into your signature look and not realize it! Try mixing it up once in a while when you’re feeling creative and see the difference.
