These Are the Best Celebrity Hair Color Transformations of 2020 (So Far)

It seems like every day, someone is debuting a bold new hair color or style, and based on what we've seen so far, that rings extremely true in 2020.
With a whirlwind award season behind us and big new-decade energy in the air, it's no surprise that celebs have been switching up their looks in major ways. Just take Selena Gomez and Khloé Kardashian, for example. And if we had to guess, that doesn't show any signs of slowing down soon, either.

Including last-minute award show hair color changes and new signature looks in the making, keep scrolling to see our favorites all in one place. Who knows, they might inspire your own color transformation.
The Kardashian-Jenners never fail to surprise us with their quick hair color (and cut) changes, often with the help of incredible wig stylists. This time, however, Kylie Jenner went all in on the real thing, trading her black hair for a dimensional caramel-brown.
Vanessa Hudgens has been sporting her nearly black hair since High School Musical first debuted. Sure, she's tried a few balayage and ombré shades — even throwing a few wigs into the mix — but chocolate brown? That's a new one, and we fully support it.
The red carpet at Vanity Fair's annual Oscars party is arguably as impressive as the actual award show's. That theory was confirmed when Amandla Stenberg stepped out in blond box braids, which they have been rocking ever since. The chin-length bob style reportedly took six hours to complete, but there's no doubt it was well worth it.
Beyond being well-known for her skills on the soccer field, Megan Rapinoe's pink hair has caught the attention of fans everywhere. Recently, however, she decided to take things one step further with seemingly unicorn-inspired hair. Hairstylist Riawna Capri created what she calls #moonshinemagic, featuring a mix of pastel purples and blues.
In case you missed the Grammys red carpet, allow us to catch you up on one of the most surprising beauty moments of the night: Ariana's new blond ponytail. Keeping her brunette roots intact, the singer said "Thank U, Next" to her darker ends.
Megan Thee Stallion
Turning 25 can definitely be considered a milestone, and Megan Thee Stallion made sure to celebrate in style. The rapper, who often experiments with her hair color, opted for electric-blue space buns, complete with makeup and an outfit to match.
Mother Monster is no stranger to experimenting with hair color, but based on a string of recent Instagrams, it looks like her bubblegum-pink hair might be here to stay (for a while, at least). But what would a Lady Gaga look be without a little twist? Barely there blond brows are the cherry on top, making the new look feel so authentically her.
Olivia Colman is the true queen of award season, and her last-minute Oscars transformation is proof. The Crown's actress decided to undergo a major color change the day of the award show, and her team's hard work definitely paid off. The new hair color looked amazing in contrast with a velvet navy dress.
From blond to brunette, Ashley Benson isn't afraid to switch up her hair color, but pink really caught our attention. The actress posted a handful of photos on Instagram showcasing a dimensional pink bob. The contrast with her darker brows made for a totally edgy look.
Ashley Benson (Again)
If you thought Ashley Benson's pink hair was shocking, things only get more interesting. Based on her most recent Instagrams, it appears her hair is back to brown — and extralong! No matter what color and style she chooses next, we have no doubt she'll pull it off flawlessly.
Charlize Theron heats up any red carpet she steps onto, and the Golden Globes were no exception. Hours before the show, she gave her short blond hair an upgrade, opting for a brighter, slightly more yellow, and sleek, ultracropped style.
Over the past few years, Katy Perry has experimented with various cuts and lengths, but one thing that's stayed consistent? Her icy platinum blond. That all changed when she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote the newest season of American Idol. A peach wig covered up her now-signature blond hair, courtesy of stylist Jesus Guerrero.
