6 Celebrity Hairstyles You Googled Most in 2017

Say what you want about 2017, but it was a fabulous year for celebrity hair. From the emergence of Meghan Markle [1] as curl queen extraordinaire to Selena Gomez [2]'s dye job that shook the world, we had a lot of hair news to keep up with. Ahead, we take a look back at the top hair stories we all Googled last year.

Jeremy Lin

Back in October, Jeremy Lin drew criticism for growing dreadlocks [3]. Many accused the Chinese-American Brooklyn Nets player of appropriating black culture. In response, Jeremy wrote [4], "I’m really grateful to my teammates and friends for being willing to help me talk through such a difficult subject, one that I’m still learning about and working my way through."

Katy Perry

In March, we all did a collective double-take at Katy Perry's new blonde pixie cut [5]. According to the singer's Instagram, the look was apparently inspired by Michelle Williams [6].

It was an unprecedented beauty look for the famous brunette, and in an emotional YouTube live stream, Katy later explained her motivation [7] for making the chop. "People like talk about my hair, right? They don't like it or they wish that it was longer. I so badly want to be Katheryn Hudson that I don't even want to look like Katy Perry [8] anymore sometimes. That is a little bit of why I cut my hair, because I really want to be my authentic self."

One month later, Katy said that she felt [9] "liberated" by the look. It also doesn't hurt that now she's the spitting image of Cara Delevingne [10].

Meghan Markle

How do we love Meghan Markle [11]'s hair? Let us count the ways. First, although she favors sleek blowouts [12], she can also rock natural hair (please take a moment to appreciate these high school pictures [13] of curl queen Meghan).

Second, she's not afraid to get real [14] about her use of dry shampoo (Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray [15] ($22), to be exact).

She's also got a nervous habit of touching her hair [16], but let's be real: if we had that mane, we'd always be pawing it, too.

Selena Gomez

The "Wolves" singer has been serving consistently great hair for years, but she truly hit her stride in Nov. 2017, when she debuted bleach blonde strands [17] at the American Music Awards. If you want to recreate this already-legendary style, be sure to carve out a whole day in the salon chair — it took stylists Riawna Capri and Nikki Lee nine hours and eight bowls of bleach [18] to pull this off.

Kate Hudson

The famous California blonde shocked us all by shaving her head this Summer [19] — and the results were undeniably sexy! Kate's been growing the look out since then, and told Ellen Degeneres [20] that she had just hit the "first awkward stage" of the process. "There are pieces sticking up and I have to put it down with product," she added. But judging by the badass style, we have to say it's totally worth it.

Halle Berry

Our perennial-favorite hair girl Halle [21] gave us so many Google-able looks this year. Our two favorites were when she showed up to the Oscars in her glorious, natural curls, and when she wore straight-outta-the-'90s hair wraps [22] to the premiere of Kidnap.
