Let’s be honest, most of 2020 didn’t require much hairstyling. Lack of human contact due to the pandemic limited the amount of time we had to style our hair. However, for those who live a celebrity lifestyle, they may beg to differ. They may have been stuck at home too, but with social media being the number one vehicle to keep us connected, the stars still maintained their dos.
Some ladies addressed their hairstyling woes with the big chop, while others opted for wigs that gave them an entirely new look. Whatever the reason for the hair transformations, we took note of the most fabulous hairstyles. As we wrap up the year, we’re taking a look at the top 5 hair transformations of 2020.
1) Tiffany Haddish
When Tiffany Haddish took clippers to her head, people thought she was having a nervous breakdown. However, the actress and comedian made it know that she is 100% sane. Tiffany said she was so excited to experience herself without hair. In an Instagram video she said, “Why when a woman decides, ‘Hey, I’m gonna cut this hair off because I wanna see my scalp,’ she’s gotta have a mental problem? Nothing is wrong with my brain, guys, I’m not suffering from no emotional s—, nothing.”
2) Yvonne Orji
Yvonne Orji was another celebrity who opted for the big chop. The actress detailed a day where she woke up feeling a bit off. After listening to gospel music, watching a sermon, and doing some online scrolling, she decided to start fresh. After cutting her hair, Yvonne rocked a TWA with a Black power fist etched in the side. What a vibe!
Saweetie is known to switch up her hair on a regular basis. Still, when the rapper posted an image of herself in a buzz cut, the internet went wild admiring her new look. Although the look was temporary, it was one of the best hair-flexes of 2020.
Ciara is the queen of switching her hair up. Just last week, the singer debuted her powder pink holiday wig. And, this summer she kept us highly entertained. In a IGTV video promoting her new music, CiCi showed off too many fabulous hairstyles to count — giving us complete hair envy. From finger waves to faux locs, Ciara proved there’s no style a Black woman can’t rock.
5) Kenya Moore
During this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya Moore showed off a regal African-inspired, waist-length braids during her interviews. The look is vastly different from her usual long and loose curls. Because she rarely switches up her hair, this look deserves a moment.
