Summer Celebrity Hair Transformations of 2021


Summer Celebrity Hair Transformations of 2021

With a full glam squad team at their disposal, it’s no surprise that our favourite celebs change their hairstyles with the seasons (or at least feels like they do). Earlier this year, we saw some of the most dramatic and stunning hair transformations from a myriad of A-listers; from Billie Eilish’s black to blonde transformation, to Demi Lavato’s long to short hair switch. But as we all know; our fav celebs don’t always stick to one style – so we’ve rounded up the best hair transformations of summer 2021.

Whether you’re simply looking for some inspiration or itching to switch up your hair for these warm months, we’ve got the bold transformations to inspire your ‘hot girl summer’. Changing your hair can come in a variety of different forms; from haircuts, colour changes and highlights to extensions and even wigs. With so much choice, there’s no better reason to give in to the urge of get a fun, new hair colour for the summer. Besides, it’s the perfect season to try something new with your hair.


Kim Kardashian-West


No hair transformation is complete without one of the Kardashian/ Jenner sisters. So we are kicking off our summer hair transformation list with style queen Kim K. A true trend setter when it comes to all things hair, make-up and style, Kim is not one shy away from to testing out new trends. The star switched her long, shiny dark brown locks to voluminous blonde waves that stop at the shoulders. She completed the look with daring bleached eyebrows. 

Make like Kim and opt for our Light Golden Blonde (No. 16) extensions. This classic blonde shade is honey-gold with a rich warmth, and will certainly give you that Kardashian-worthy gloss

Rihanna


Triple threat Riri has always changed been on top of her hair game since 2005, and at times, has been responsible for starting some awesome hairs trends; her cherry-red curls and her pixie crop in 2012 made headlines while her iconic angled bob that changed how we look at bobs forever. The singer has sported an array of looks and more recently, she switched from her usual day-to-day brown waves to a stunning mullet we think only she can pull!

But this is Rihanna we are talking about. So of course, she’s rocking another look already, - a jet-black pixie cut that’s making us want to chop our hair ASAP! But fear not, for those not quite ready to go for the big chop, our clip in human hair extensions are the answer. You can simply cornrow your hair underneath as flat as possible and add your short length clip ins which you can cut and shape accordingly – we recommend getting a professional to achieve this look for you though.

Like most of our favourite supermodels, Hailey Baldwin has experimented with dramatic hair dye and cuts; we’ve witnessed the model go from long to short, from blonde to brunette. For the summer months though, she switched from her usual honey blonde waves to a striking middle part on the darker side. She went for a sleek, straight bronde hairstyle that really frames her face.

This colour is the perfect summer 2021 hair colour; its low maintenance and the golden tones are warm and sultry, and work on everyone. This colour works especially well for brunettes as it allows you to work with your natural shade while also adding a bright, face-framing pop through the ends and still feel blonde. 

Ariana Grande

Famously known for her signature sky-high ponytail since she charted, singer Ariana Grande has been sporting a dark brown half-up half-down do, with strands at the front which perfectly frame her face, making short hair the trending hairstyle for summer 2021.

Her style is giving us subtle-but-glam and it’s the perfect summer hair transformation. With stunning chestnut brown hair half pulled back, this is an easy style to steal! Half up styles are lovely and classic and work for the season because they are functional and still allow you to show off the flow of your hair and add extra height. 

To get Ariana’s shade, try our Light/Chestnut Brown Hair Extensions (#6) shade - a light and sophisticated brunette shade with warm to neutral undertones.

Lana Condor

Lana Condor switched up her dark hair to a stunning pastel pink shade earlier this year; making it one of the biggest celebrity hair transformations of 2021 so far. 

The star showed off her new colour with a stunning selfie on Instagram with the caption: "Get 'Anyone Else But You' to 5 mil streams and I’ll keep it... U know I love my pink 💞,". And yes, yes we do love her pink!

Pastel pink locks are always a hit in the summer months. This fabulous hair colour also helps you get some fun and glamorous Instagram photos. If you're thinking of going pink but want to experiment first, why not try our pink human hair extensions

Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie stunned with a long wave, subtle ombre and a low messy ponytail at the Oscars just last month – a dramatic change from her short blonde bob. 

The new style saw the star with long, dark blonde hair, styled in a low, messy ponytail, with a blunt fringe cut straight across her forehead. We certainly believe her stylist Bryce Scarlett used hair extensions to achieve this new dramatic yet romantic look. The golden highlight is maintenance-friendly, and perfectly framed Margot’s face and offered a natural sun-kissed look that's perfect for warm weather. What’s more? This undone look is the go-to summer look we all need!

Get the actress’ dark golden shade and opt for our Brown/Blonde Mix Hair Extensions (#18/613) shade – an eye-catching combination of dark ash blonde and bleach blonde that will have everyone guessing, and complete the look with our clip on human hair fringe (which is available in that colour too!)
