The Celebrity Hairstyles All Women Wanted in 2017

When it comes to getting a new look for your hair, there are loads of places to seek out inspiration, and it does pay off to have a few photos to show your stylist when you have a change in mind. While sites like My New Hair Styles can offer a wealth of ideas for cuts and colors, a lot of people actually choose to use celebrities as their style guide, and this year, there has been no shortage of dramatic hair transformations when it comes to stars.

Equally, when styling hair for a special occasion, sometimes inspiration can come from TV and movie characters who, while perhaps not sporting the actor’s real hair, can provide some cool and interesting looks.

Here are some of the hair changes a lot of women have been admiring, or even emulating, from the stars in 2017:


  • Cara Delevigne


It has been a big year for Cara Delevigne, who has continued to make the progression from model to Hollywood actress. While her acting efforts have not necessarily been well received thus far, her bold haircut has been. When choosing a short, messy pixie cut, she opted for a brunette tone, which proved a good look for her petite features.

Cuts this short can be a brave move, especially if you aren’t confident you have Cara’s bone structure, but they can make for a fun and dramatic way to shake up your look and are also incredibly practical.


  • Emilia Clarke As Danaerys Targaryen


Game of Thrones has been the most talked about show on TV for seven years now and 2017 was no exception. Emilia Clarke has become a beloved household name for her portrayal of the beautiful dragon queen Danaerys Targaryen, and her long, platinum blonde hair with its elaborate braided styles has been the inspiration for a lot of women looking for occasion hairstyles this year.

Emilia Clarke wears a wig on the show, but for women with extremely long hair experimenting with braids can create some fantastic looks, and of course, even with mid-length hair these looks can be achieved with extensions.


  • Kate Middleton


The Duchess of Cambridge has proven to be a popular style icon for those who admire elegant, natural looking hair, with her trademark loose, long waves an easy look to achieve for a lot of women. The Duchess’s rich chocolate brown hair color is a natural classic that suits a lot of skin tones.

However, Kate did show some interesting variation when she appeared at the UK Remembrance Sunday service with what looked like a new bob haircut. Actually, Kate’s new style wasn’t a cut at all, but a ‘faux bob’ created by curling and pinning under some of the length; a look a lot of long-haired women may well be looking to try for themselves!

2017 has been an interesting year for celebrity hair, and it will be interesting to see how these, and other popular stars, change their styles in 2018, too!
