bobs and lobs to braids and full fringes, there are so many amazing hairstyles out there that it can be hard to know where to start if you’re looking for a little pre-salon inspiration. So here’s my suggestion: the A-list. With access to top hairstylists and trending hair products, celebs are constantly stepping out in hairstyles that give me major strand envy. But by switching up their hair as often as we change our t-shirts, choosing a favorite style can lead to an inevitable fall down an Instagram rabbit hole.
To make things easier for you, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite celebrity hairstyles ever—37 to be precise—to make your next trip to the hairdresser a little easier.
