Selena Gomez is famous for her signature deep-brown hair color but at the 2017 American Music Awards, she shocked us with her new hair by incorporating dark roots to her blonde hairstyle. According to Riawna, her stylists revealed on her Instagram, “It took 9 hours, about 300 foils, and 8 bowls of bleach,” to create the unique shade, dubbed Vintage Blonde. Whoa. And well worth it!

"The Princess Diaries"'s star has come such a long way in Hollywood with the radiant brunette we all know and love. However, Anne Hathaway wore a platinum blonde short hairstyle to the 2013 MET Gala. She is almost unrecognizable with the platinum locks, though many fans hated this hairstyle, the Oscar winner revealed that the change made her funnier. “I don’t know why, but I just felt that I could be funnier while saying less. I know that doesn’t make any sense, but it was just—it’s nice. And it also made me want to do it more in life, like, just mess around with [my hair] and not get too fixed on anything.”

Zoe Kravitz is clearly the most effortless "cool girl" in Hollywood, and her naturally dark-brown hair further enhances her stunning appearance. But in 2017, the "Big Little Lies" star first underwent a rather significant transformation with short platinum micro-braids. After that, she made the decision to have a completely shaved, stylish blonde pixie cut! We just wish we were as fearlessly cool as Zoe!

Although Zendaya has experimented with every color of her hair, we are most accustomed to seeing the attractive former Disney actress with her natural, rich brunette shade. At the 2017 Fashion Awards, Zendaya debuted her most daring hairdo to date, a platinum-hued, block-cut pixie cut. Her new look was a beauty trend for women all around the world at that time. The beauty and style icon wrote on Instagram, “A platinum blonde pixie tonight cause why not?”

Although Daenerys Targaryen's signature silver hair probably made you believe that Emilia Clarke who played her is blonde, Clarke is a natural brunette. In 2017, Clarke once again went blonde, but then she's gone back to her natural color since the bleach dried out her hair.

Before she become a big star, the former Disney actress kept it simple as a fresh-faced brunette. Even though the plot of her Disney Channel show required her to be brunette, Miley Cyrus as an adult has leaned far more toward her godmother Dolly Parton's Barbie blonde since she debuted honey hair in 2012. Platinum-blonde Miley is Miley living her truest life — and we are so here for that.

From a quick rise to fame through the "Twilight" series to the front pages of gossip magazines, Kristen Stewart has become an attractive actress in Hollywood. Best known for her early reputation as a glum and shy brunette, we love how natural Stewart’s beauty MO always seemed to be. Although K-Stew has worn her blonde hair in a variety of styles at this time, this buzz-cut and seductive smoky eye combination from 2017 will always be our favorite platinum-blonde K-Stew look. Nailed it.

"Girls" star and writer, director, and producer Lena Dunham rarely follows fashion trends. Though her brunette hue may have been a little basic, it's one of her most recognizable features. But when going blonde, Lena Dunham exudes rockstar vibes. Only Lena Dunham could pull off the combination of rock-star elegance and oh-so-effortless while wearing ultra-short platinum curls, blue eyeliner, and blue fur.

There is no doubt that Rihanna's naturally colored locks are unique no matter what hairstyle or hair color she wears. This billionaire icon loves the hottest hair trends, so it's not so surprising that she has gone blonde multiple times, most notably at the Grammys 2012.
