The most dramatic hair transformations in the second half of 2019

Stars love to switch up their hair as it’s one of the easiest ways to freshen up one’s look... though the outcome isn’t always for better.

From dramatic chops and major dye jobs to going back to the basics, here are the best and worst hair makeovers in the past six months.

We can barely keep up with Hayley’s hair changes. The actress went from brunette to peach blonde to ash brown to golden brown in a manner of months.

Hot or not: Hot, though we’re partial to the perky peachy ‘do from a couple of months ago. We’d also like to applaud Hayley’s hairstylist for keeping her locks so healthy-looking despite all that they’ve been through.

For her role as an androgynous aqua fitness coach in upcoming Mediacorp drama Happy Prince, Denise traded in her luscious locks for a choppy pixie cut.

Hot or not: We loved how fresh and spunky the actress looked with her short ‘do, and we love it even more now that it is growing into a chic cropped bob. Hot!

We got quite a shock when we saw Yuwu's mushroom 'do on Instagram last month.

Hot or not: All we can say is we hope this is for a role.

Look who has returned to the dark side. Jacelyn said she felt refreshed after the makeover and she does look like it too.

Hot or not: Maybe it’s the combination with the red lip, but we certainly like the sultrier look. Hot!

“Change can be scary and daunting... but sometimes, change can be fun, exciting and amazing,” said Kimberly when she unveiled her ‘80s-style big hair.

Hot or not: Bigger isn’t always better, and we’re not the only ones who think so. Many netizens commented that the actress looks more matured with the frizzy curls. Not.

Who knew that trimming Sonia’s fringe would take her from local star to French starlet?

Hot or not: She bangs, she bangs!

Weeks before the Star Search 2019 final, Herman lobbed off his signature wavy tresses as he felt “a change is necessary. Only through change we grow.”

Hot or not: Sorry, Herman - boyish as you may look now, we think you lost your X factor. Nevertheless, may you continue to grow from strength to strength... and grow your hair out while you’re at it.

Out with the old and in with the new. To welcome a new chapter in her life, the Star Search 2019 finalist bade goodbye to her platinum blonde locks after the competition.

Hot or not: While the budding actress is still pretty with her darker 'do, she seems to have lost that spark after going brunette. Guess blondes do have more fun.

After filming for Old Is Gold wrapped, Felicia traded her shaggy mid-length locks for a choppy, playful ‘do.

Hot or not: HOT! We are obsessed with her baby bangs which give her an air of whimsy.

Jazreel “murdered” her tresses and the outcome was hair-raising to say the least. Like some netizens, we too asked ourselves, “Is that real?”

Hot or not: Not. The granny hair’s cool but not the most flattering – the hue washes her out. We much prefer the now browner shade.

We did a double take when we saw Mei Xin’s strawberry blonde tresses on Instagram.

Hot or not: Mei Xin is giving us K-pop star vibes with her new hue (it’s called Coral Cotton Candy by the way). The change of colour elevates the actress from girl-next-door to who’s-that-girl. HOT!

It was “black to basic” for Ferlyn when she booked in to play an army recruit in I’m Madam.

Hot or not: The black is too harsh against Ferlyn’s fair complexion, making her look gothic. But if that’s the look she’s going for, then hot.

Jesseca’s look has been pretty stagnant for the past few years, so we were happy to see her try something new.

Hot or not: While her long flowing locks are #hairgoals, it’s refreshing to see Jesseca with her blunt bangs. Hot!

“My first day as a 49-year-old and the first thing I did was to finally shave off that beard,” wrote Ping Hui on Instagram.

Hot or not: You know what they say - older and wiser. And in this case, more handsome too. Hot!
