This is the most popular celeb hairdo of 2016

From ombré and galaxy hair to the return of the bangs, this year’s hair trends were nothing short of tress chic. While runway models typically serve as beacons of #hairinspo, let us not forget about the power of a celeb hairdo. Whether Farrah Fawcett’s wispy layers circa the ’70s or Jennifer Aniston’s ‘The Rachel’, celebrity hairstyles have the power to make and break hair trends, and that also includes contributing to the upheaval of society’s mindsets on what a power woman should look like—Google ‘iconic hairstyles’ and you’ll find your answer. 


This year, we’ve noticed a gradual shift to overall shorter lengths. Celebrities including Taylor Swift and Khloe Kardashian have opted for the snip, proudly showing off their utterly chic lobs, bobs, and chin-grazing layers that frame their faces perfectly. If you’re looking to trim off your locks soon, one way of acing this look is to create plenty of texture so it doesn’t fall flat instead. Go with choppy layers or curl it for soft waves, and remember to scrunch your hair with pomade or texturising spray so that this tousled, just-got-out-of-bed ‘do will last throughout the day.


Below, 10 of our favourite wavy bobs and lobs from celebs for you to take the plunge:
