HIlary Duff hair 2020

First, Miley Cyrus’s shaggy mullet inspired a new hair trend for 2020. Then, Blake Lively has brought back the bowl cut. Now, Hilary Duff has changed her signature look of 2019. Here are all the newest celebrity hairstyles to be debuted so far this year. 

We can all agree that 2019 was the year of the blunt bob. Celebrities including January Jones, Fearne Cotton, Lucy Liu, Nicole Scherzinger and Jourdan Dunn all rocked the razor-sharp chop. Rihanna, Selena Gomez and Constance Wu proved it was a big year for bangs, too. And let’s not forget to give a shout out to the many colour transformations that took place, including Dua Lipa’s brunette-to-bleached locks and Maisie Williams’s rainbow of dyes.

So what has 2020 got in store for celebrity hair? Which styles and colours will we be showing photos of to our stylists? Is the bob here to stay? Let’s find out…

Celebrity hair inspiration 2020

Hilary Duff, Blake Lively, Miley Cyrus, Ricki Lake, Kerry Washingston and Barbie Ferreira have already kickstarted the biggest trends with their new hair styles.

  • Hilary Duff

    Last year, Hilary Duff opted to get married with a straight, sharp ‘lob’ to match her modern Jenny Packham gown. Like many others, the long bob was her signature style of 2019. But now the actor has gone to new lengths, literally.

    Duff shared a photograph of her longer, wavy style on Instagram. She heavily hinted that the new look was down to extensions from her stylist Riawna Capri.

    She captioned the photo: “Whoa @riawna how’d you make my hair grow like this over night??? Cool trick cool trick.”

  • Blake Lively

    If anybody can pull off a bowl cut, it’s Blake Lively. The actor – who styled her hair in this delightfully retro way for her role in upcoming film The Rhythm Section – showcased the new look on Instagram, captioning it, “Facetune broke.”

    It’s world’s apart from the long, blonde hair that Lively is known for, but like a true chameleon she really suits the shorter, mousey brown style. 

  • Barbie Ferreira

    Not one to shy away from a bold hair and makeup look, Euphoria star Barbie Ferreira has debuted a mullet with serious attitude. Although she sported a longer mullet at the end of last year, the actor has now gone with a shorter and shaggier style. Her stylist, Laura Heaps, who took four-inches off the length, told Elite Daily: “We looked through at a lot of pictures together and then just created this vision of a modern mullet.” It’s as easy as that…

  • Miley Cyrus

    Miley Cyrus brought in the new year with a shaggy mullet, and we are feeling its seriously 70s punk vibes. The cut is a far cry from the favoured blunt bob, with its tousled fringe and natural finish. Cyrus uploaded the new look on her Instagram, writing: “New hair. New Year. NEW MUSIC.” Will the mullet make a proper comeback in 2020?     

  • Ricki Lake

    TV legend Ricki Lake has shared a photo of her newly shaved head, revealing the very relatable reason behind doing it. Lake revealed that she has been living with hair loss on and off for almost 30 years. “I am not alone in this and my goal is to help others while at the same time unshackle myself from this quiet hell I have been living in,” she said. It’s inspiring. It’s bold. It’s liberating. 

  • Kerry Washington

    Hair chameleon Kerry Washington has worn her hair in natural curls, long braids and a sleek mid-style over recent months. She even had a pixie cut at one point. But Washington proved that the long bob – or ‘the lob’ – isn’t going anywhere in 2020. Stepping out on the Golden Globes carpet, she showed off a newly cut shoulder-skimming do, with a deep side parting and sweeping fringe. 

We’re only a couple of weeks into the new year, so we’ll be keeping an eye out for the best styles that celebrities will inevitably debut over the coming months.
