Out with the old, in with the new? If you’re tired of the same hairstyle you’ve worn for months (or even years!), January is a perfect time for change. Need a little inspiration? These gorgeous celeb’ hairstyles will have you turning heads all year long!

Jessica Lange’s voluminous shoulder-grazing curls are sure attention-grabbers. The highlights, especially those framing her face, take what could be a “plain” look and  turns it into “stunning”. Those lovely locks are perfect for any occasion – day or night.

Thinking of going short? Try an upgraded pixie cut. Viola Davis makes a regular pixie cut look sexy and sophisticated with a longer fringe structure and swooping bangs.

If you’re really feeling bold, try on a new color. Other than her superb acting skills, Dana Delany is known for one thing. Her coveted fiery red tresses! You don’t have to go red if you don’t want; however, trying something different, even if it’s only adding highlights, is an easy way to give your old look a new twist.

Bangs can go a long way toward giving your old style a new kick. And they help you look younger. Beauty experts say bangs disguise forehead wrinkles and hide’s crow’s feet. Just be sure your stylist doesn’t do too blunt of a cut because blunt cut bangs look too harsh. Goldie Hawn’s wispy bangs are just right. They can be worn as is or side-swept for a fresh look.

Want to go long (or stay long) after 50? Copy Jane Seymour. Her wispy bangs, bouncy waves and face-framing highlights make for a ‘do that is both elegant and fun!

If you’re usually a curls and waves type woman, try going straight like the naturally curly Julia Louis-Dreyfus. This long and sleek style looks good worn down or pulled back into a messy bun.

If you’re looking for change, look no further. Sharon Stone has worn her hair long and straight, long and curly, short and curly, in a razored bob, a ponytail, braids, and her iconic pixie cut. Whatever look you’re considering, chances are, Stone has done it before. Here, her hair is pinned back to give her a ‘do that looks both messy and glam.
