This year brought plenty of surprises, especially in the world of celebrity hair.

While celebrities like Bella Hadid and Khloe Kardashian helped make it the year of the lob, Kate Hudson and Kristen Stewart proved that buzz cuts can also be super chic. And though Selena Gomez and Kim Kardashian West made blonde the hair color of the year, others like Bella Thorne and Paris Jackson went against the grain by going darker.

From chopping off inches to changing the color, here are the most drastic changes celebrities have made to their locks in 2017.
