Best Celebrity Hair of 2009


Katie Holmes’ brunette bob was one of my favorites last year. Still love this cut on her!


Even though my love Rihanna hasn’t changed her short (now) blonde hair in what seems like ages, I can’t forget about that magical time early in 2009 when I watched her every move. Would she shave more off? Add highlights? Poof it up into a pompadour or slick it into a mohawk? I can only hope 2010 brings some Rihanna hairdrama.


One of my favorite haircuts of ’09: Victoria Beckham’s wavy bob.


Yes, Lady Gaga on the Best Hair of 2009 and not the Worst Hair list Why? Because she doesn’t take the whole thing too seriously. She uses hair and makeup as a way to express her creativity, which is exciting and inspiring.

A ton more celebs who made my Best 0f ’09 list–including Blake Lively, Solange, Robert Pattinson and more–after the break!


Blake Lively hair was the “aspirational hair” of 2009.


A major hair highlight of 2009 was Solange! Partially shaved hair was a big trend in ’09, but Solange took it all the way. She said, “I just need to kind of start over and liberate myself and feel empowered. I feel like so many women put so much of their power in their hair, and I was succumbing to that — like, spending so much time and money and energy on my hair.”


Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were kind of a big deal in 2009. Their hair? Fantastical. I wonder where they will be in 10 years?


Taylor Swift gave us lots of great hair in 2009, but I really liked this elegant updo she wore to the Grammy’s. She looks out-of-this-world gorgeous here.


Amanda Seyfried’s old Hollywood hairstyle remains a favorite from 2009. So Veronica Lake.


My hair idol: Rachel Bilson. Le sigh.


Right before Halle Berry cut her hair into a pixie cut, she rocked this cute layered bob. I love Halle’s pixie, but it’s been photographed so much, so I thought I’d bring back a snap of her equally flattering bob.


Oh and her husband, Gabriel Aubrey. You’re welcome.  😉

So who did I forget to add to the Best Celebrity Hair of 2009 list? Who do you think did not deserve to be on the list? And don’t forget to check out the Worst Celebrity Hair of 2009!
