8 Celebrities Whose Careers Were Seemingly Ruined By Hairstyles

Celebrities are often encouraged to refresh their looks but it seems to be hard for those whose fans get used to a certain appearance to change up their personal hairstyle. After all, it’s still interesting to get out of one’s comfort zone and some celebs have tried with their tresses.
While many are given praise or positive comments, several are not as lucky as that. Several changes lead to disastrous results. For example, Model Karlie Kloss caused controversy when she decided to cut her long hair short just two days before Victoria’s Secret runway show. Her attitude angered Voctoria’s Secret fans. And you know what happens when you upset them? She gets ousted, like that way Miranda Kerr became too big for the brand.
Here are 8 celebs whose hairstyles seemed to ruin their careers.
