We’re calling it: 2017 was a fearless one for hair. From dramatic chops to brunette-to-blonde transformations, celebs served up some bold inspo for our own locks. To give you an idea of the fabulous hair year we had, we’re breaking down its best moments. Our strands will never be the same.
The queen (intentional) of understated elegance, Kate made a minor tweak to her long strands that made a big impact. Yep, in the fall the duchess trimmed her hair to a refreshing neck-grazing length. Subtle? Yes. Still stunning? Also, yes.
Kaia made quite a splash this year with her runway walk and uncanny resemblance to supermodel mama Cindy Crawford. Ever the doppelgänger, Kaia debuted a fresh cut over the summer that was reminiscent of her mom's circa 2005. The soft bangs and loose waves were the perfect warm-weather refresh.

You'd think we'd be used to Kim K's unexpected bold moves by now. But when she showed up at New York Fashion Week with silvery blonde locks, our jaws dropped. Even more surprising? It took seven days for the natural brunette to go completely platinum. Oy.
Lucy Hale is known for experimenting with chic cuts and colors, but the chin-grazing bob and warm chocolatey tone she's been rocking lately gives us all the feels.
While her most recent hair change—newly blonde!—was the boldest move we've seen from Selena all year, it was the lob she got this summer that made us run to the salon for a trim.
Mila's hair went from short to shorter this year, and we're not mad about it.
Nicole can do no wrong, and this age-defying shoulder-length style is proof.
Bella's long locks were chopped to just above her shoulders this summer—and so, of course, were ours.
In early fall, Kourtney debuted the hottest haircut on Pinterest: the tousled long bob.
White-hot blonde was a top shade of 2017, as evidenced on Karlie, who pulls it off flawlessly.
