As the saying goes: “New year, new ’do”—and celebrities take that really seriously. Whether they’re re-inventing themselves for a role, going for a post-baby or pre-wedding switch-up, or just pulling a Kylie Jenner (a.k.a. changing their hair colour the way some people change underwear), celebs from the A to Z lists are sure to make some big hair decisions in 2019. And we can’t wait to see them.
Kicking things off, two celeb new hair transformations at the Golden Globes 2019 red carpet caught our eye—and blew up our timelines. Yes, we’re talking about Chris Messina and Mother Monster herself. Shortly after, both Baywatch hunk Zac Efron and the new Mrs. Biebs joined their ranks, going platinum and cotton-candy hued, respectively.
Here is the low down on their new looks. Stay tuned (and save this list for your stylist!) as we continue to update the best celeb hair transformations of 2019.
Taking inspo from the Pink Ladies’ Frenchy, Baldwin debuted a new pink ’do to kick off the new year, dying her usually blonde hair a bubblegum pink. This isn’t the newlywed’s first foray in to pastels. She first rocked pink hair at last year’s Met Gala (with then-BF Shawn Mendes on her arm), giving off major couple-goals *and* major hair goals.
It may be a different year, and she may have a different beau (and last name—at least on IG), but some things remain the same: Baldwin is definitely still pretty in pink.
In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it change, Efron debuted his ice-blonde look in a series of (thankfully, shirtless) posts to his Instagram. The actor is no novice when it comes to quirky hair changes. If anything, 2018 was the year of hair-raising styles for the Baywatch star, with the actor trying out multiple looks, including a very interesting striped-beard/frosted tips combo (thanks to his upcoming role in The Beach Bum).
Efron has recently come off filming and promo’ing his newest movie, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, about American serial killer Ted Bundy (a brunette), so can you blame the guy for wanting to add a little light to his life (and hair)?
Actor Chris Messina (of The Mindy Project and Sharp Objects fame) surprised fans at the 2019 Golden Globes, stepping out with platinum hair. With his new look, the normally brunette actor joins a growing list of celebs, including Kylie Jenner, Hilary Duff and Pete Davidson, testing out the theory that blondes have more fun.
The moment Messina walked out on the carpet, the internet was shook, and hella thirsty.

The actor has always been hunky, but has he *officially* joined Steve Carrell as a full on #Zaddy? Some people in the FLARE office were in full support of Messina’s golden locks, saying that dear sexy Danny can pull off anything. Others were convinced that this is the look of a Zayn Malik-inspired mid-life crisis.
According to a tweet by Good Morning America producer Tony Morrison, Messina’s switch-up is most likely work-related. The actor is set to star in the upcoming DC film Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) as villain Victor Zsasz. If that’s the case, let’s just say he makes being bad look real good.
We’re gaga over this look! The A Star Is Born actor opted for a bold new ’do for her first walk on the Golden Globes red carpet, taking her normally blonde mane from frosted to frosty blue. Never one to shy away from a bold fashion statement, the singer matched her new blue locks to her periwinkle gown, which gave everyone major Judy Garland vibes, completing a head-to-toe look worthy of a star.
