The most dramatic local celeb hair makeovers of 2019 – so far

We're only at the halfway mark of 2019 but we’ve already seen some drastic hair transformations from the stars this year. From dramatic chops and major dye jobs to going back to basics, these are the best and worst hair makeovers of 2019 - so far.

Paige isn’t the most adventurous hair-wise so we got a thrill seeing her sporting a subtle sweeping fringe. Perhaps she was inspired by the clip-ons she donned in Blessings 2?

Upgrade or downgrade:

Upgrade. The bangs not only flatter her face but also takes years off it (not that she really needed that).

Jayley spent the past couple of months going from brown, to pink, to blue, looking every bit the fashionista. She even had the pink hue, dubbed “Jayley Pink”, named after her.

Upgrade or downgrade:

Upgrade for pink, downgrade for the current Cookie Monster blue.

For his role as a police coast guard in CLIF 5, Joel transformed himself from brooding rocker to suave cop.

Upgrade or downgrade:

Upgrade. And we’re not the only ones who think so. Many of his fans commented that he looks more handsome with the boyish ‘do.

Jae was initially very nervous about cutting her signature tousled waves short, but after she saw how “nice” she looked after the first snip, she decided to go even shorter.

Upgrade or downgrade:

It’s about high time the actress ventured from the long hair she’s had since her debut and we love the sass she oozes with the choppy bob. One of the best makeovers this year!

Gerald Koh

We’re used to Gerald going bold and crazy with different hair colours, but he turned heads with his #grannyhair - and not in a good way.

Upgrade or downgrade:

Downgrade. Sorry Gerald, this ain’t the hottest shade of grey for you. The hue is too dark, making you look more like you forgot to touch up your greys than a silver fox.

Ahead of filming for All Is Well, Sheila took the plunge and chopped off her mid length locks into this super chic pixie cut.

Upgrade or downgrade:

We would trade anything to look this good in a pixie cut. Upgrade.

In May, Hair for Hope ambassador Andie Chen went under the clippers for a good cause.

Upgrade or downgrade:

While we prefer Andie with the slicked back hair, he looks pretty good botak too. Who knew he had such a nice head shape?

Another actor sporting the bald head is Wenlong who shaved it all for his upcoming drama The Little Nyonya.

Upgrade or downgrade:

Downgrade. Is it just us or does Wenlong look older without hair?

Yaz must have really liked her purple ombre tresses ‘cos she experimented with that colour twice in the last six months.

Upgrade or downgrade:

Upgrade. Not only is the ombre on point, we love how the purple softens her look instantly.

Short hair, don’t care! Priscelia cut her hair on “impulse” and gained a whole lot of sass.

Upgrade or downgrade:

Lookin’ fresh, Priscelia! As much as we like her long hair, this bob upped her chic level by a few notches.

Last month, Julie changed up her look with a short, blunt bob that gave us Mia from Pulp Fiction vibes.

Upgrade or downgrade:

Doesn’t Julie look bangin’ in her sleek and edgy ‘do? We’re tempted to go for a chop too.

We’ve never really seen Xiuhuan with anything other than her long flowing locks, so when she lobbed it off, we did a double take.

Upgrade or downgrade:

Upgrade. Xiuhuan looks like she is 53 going on 33.
