1. Scarface Hair
The '90s are back and they're here to stay. Bella Hadid and hairstylist Jen Atkin created this '90s looking blunt bob with roller-under ends that also evokes Michelle Pfeiffer's iconic hair from Scarface.
2. Buzz Off
Hair took an extreme turn in 2017, much like everything else. Either it was ultra-long and down to your butt, or it was buzzed and shaved. Katy Perry. Kate Hudson, Zoe Kravitz, Kristen Stewart, and Cara Delevingne all joined the short hair club this year—and looked great at that.
3. Bald Is Beautiful
Cara Delevingne blew our minds with her ingenious hairstyles this year—considering she had almost no hair for more than half of it. Our favorite look? The silver painted and bedazzled scalp at the 2017 Met Gala. No hair, no problem.
4. The Switch Up
Wispy bangs, blunt bangs, short hair, long hair—for Emily Ratajkowski, 2017 was the year of the faux hair switch-up. Why cut your hair when you can just fake it?
5. Winning Red
Emma Stone's beautiful brick-red Nars lipstick brought her good luck at the Oscars, where she won Best Actress for her role in La La Land.
6. Fenty Beauty
The launch of Rihanna's makeup line Fenty Beauty gave fans some of her most colorful and playful beauty looks yet.
7. Gwen's Super Pony
Gwen Stefani's graphic, sculptural ponytail turned heads....in the direction of hairstylists around the country who now had the tall order of copying it exactly.
8. Gigi for Maybelline
Gigi Hadid joined the ranks of celebrities with beauty lines this year with a collection for Maybelline New York. Our favorite look was this blinding golden highlighter and orange-red lipstick.
9. The Twist
Joan Smalls took a top knot to new heights with this sleek, twisted version.
10. Flower Power
Sometimes the best hair accessory isn't a flower pin—it's just flowers...affixed to pins. Jennifer Lawrence wore an entire bouquet in her hair for a premiere of her film Mother!.
11. Uzo's Curls
Uzo Aduba owned the red carpet at the 2017 Emmy awards by rocking big, beautiful, natural curls. The inspiration? Diana Ross, of course.
The Superbowl in January marked the return of the Lady Gaga we all know and love. That is, a bedazzled Gaga covered in sequins and wearing stick-on rhinestone eye masks.
13. Mellow Yellow
Yellow is a makeup color we love in theory, but it's incredibly tricky to wear unless you have super-rich dark skin. Margot Robbie gave us a lesson in color theory this year with a wash of yellow shadow swept across her lids and toward her brows. Paired with natural pink lipstick and blush, yellow eyeshadow can be gorgeous.
14. The New Blondes
Kim Kardashian, Emilia Clarke, and Selena Gomez all dyed their hair icy blonde this year. It poses the question: will 2018 be the year of deep-conditioning hair masks?
15. Glitter For Grown-Ups
If you think you can't wear glittery eye makeup as a sophisticated adult, just look to Ruth Negga. The actress wore arguably the prettiest all-pink beauty look this year, with oversized metallic glitter flecks included.
16. Texture Play
One of the biggest hair trends in 2017 was all about texture play. You could either embrace your natural texture, or style it to new extremes. We loved how Zendaya, Queen of wigs and hair transformations, brought cloud-like curls to the Met Ga;a red carpet.
17. New Hollywood Glam
Emma Roberts tapped makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury to create one of the most beautiful bombshell makeup looks of the year. We're calling this New Hollywood: it's Old Hollywood classic like a red lip and golden eye done in a way that feels decidedly modern.
