Zoe Kravitz ditches the brown but keeps the braids as a boho-blonde

The Princess Diaries actress has come such a long way in Hollywood, and though she’s played with every length of hair, she’s kept it pretty consistent as the beaming brunette we all know and love.

Anne Hathaway is almost unrecognizable as a blonde
In 2013, Anne Hathaway rocked this short, platinum-blonde hairstyle to the MET Gala — and for the better part of the year — we were doing double-takes every time the actress would hit the red carpet. Nearly unrecognizable with the platinum locks, the jury is still out on whether or not we loved or hated this one. With that killer smile, does it even matter what colour her hair is?

Selena Gomez is a rare brunette beauty in Hollywood
One of the freshest faces in Hollywood and having just debuted her first makeup line, Rare Beauty, Selena Gomez is so much more than the girl-next-door she was once marketed as. Here she is rocking her signature deep-brown hair colour.

Selena Gomez adds some edge with a platinum-blonde hairstyle and dark roots
Taking the platinum hair trend one step further, Selena Gomez added some serious edge to her look by incorporating dark roots to her blonde hairstyle. We love how unexpected this was for the otherwise conservative beauty, who has never really been one to experiment drastically with her hair.

Lena Dunham is just one of the Girls as a brunette
Girls star and writer, director and producer Lena Dunham has never really been one to follow trends. And while her brunette hue may have been a little basic, nothing else about the actress is — so brunette, blonde, whatever — Lena Dunham is a #bossbabe.

Only Lena Dunham could make super-short platinum locks, blue eyeliner and blue fur (faux, obviously) look rock-star chic and oh-so-effortless, all at once.

Solange serves it as a brunette
I mean — can we just take a moment? From little-sister to style-icon, Solange has made a name for herself in the music industry and the fashion scene — and for good reason. Never has a natural brunette hue looked this killer.

Solange does it like no other as a platinum-blonde
Nobody puts baby (sister to Beyonce) in a corner. Solange may have had to work a little harder to earn her star power compared to big sis Bey, but there’s no question that Solange takes the prize for most stylish sibling. We absolutely love the platinum blonde hair on this style star.

Miley Cyrus nails it as a rebel blonde
Love her or hate her (but how can you, really?), modern-day Miley is a trip. She’s spontaneous, takes ownership of her (human) flaws and is inspiringly vocal about the causes that are near to her heart. Platinum-blonde Miley is Miley living her most authentic life — and we are so here for that.

Kristen Stewart is a natural beauty as a brunette
The Twilight star-turned-headline maker has been through a lot in the last few years. From the fast-track to fame via the Twilight film series to the front page of gossip magazines and the struggle of trying to maintain her privacy while also being an advocate for positive representation, Kristen Stewart been through the ringer on the Hollywood circuit. Best known for her early days of fame as a sullen and shy brunette, we love how natural Stewart’s beauty MO always seemed to be.

Kristen Stewart is a punk-goddess as a buzz-cut blonde
She’s rocked blonde locks in a multitude of ways at this point, but our favourite platinum-blonde K-Stew will always be this buzz-cut look, worn in 2017 with a sultry, smokey eye. Nailed it.

Rihanna keeps it classic with a dark brown hue
