Celebrity Hairstyles Are a Fad and Here Are The Stories Behind Them

Here's the interesting story behind many of the iconic celebrity hairstyles and the not-so-expected reasons. Moreso, there is this unsaid guarantee that you will be taken aback by the not-so-mainstream reasons behind the signature bangs. 

Sometimes, a particular hairdo is an inspiration from a celebrity or one that is having a moment in the fashion world or a piece of art. But, they can also be a result of a split from a 2 AM friend or the nasty play of overdrinking or simply a mishap such as a burn from the bleach. TBH, the latter has been seen to be more common! Yes, exactly, you read that right. Surprisingly though, most famous of those 'largely-followed' trends of hairstyles have been a repercussion and not a worked out style. 

*Shattering all the whims!*

Phew! Here are seven iconic celebs whose hairstyles have turned a lot of heads and have been followed blindly. 

I can anticipate heartbreaks after you read the real stories behind those coveted trends.

Bang Bang! The American beauty 'Broke Free'  about her signature high ponytail to the Arianators after immense questions. She set the record straight in a 2014 Facebook post. She wrote, "My actual hair is so broken that it looks absolutely ratchet and absurd when I let it down."

She further confesses, "I tried wigs, they looked RIDICULOUS. Tried a weave because I am working on a new project and want to try some different looks and literally wanted to rip my scalp off. So as annoying as it is for y'all to have to look at the same hairstyle all the time, it's all that works for now (AND I'm comfortable for the first time in years)."

#2. Katy Perry

She dished this to Ellen on the show, "I don't know if you've ever dyed your hair too blonde, but sometimes your hair falls out when you go too blonde so that's the way I handled it. At first, this was just to salvage my hair and then I was like, 'I really believe that the universe has a plan for this.'"

Here's what she told ESSENCE, "Each lady in the group wanted to have their own identity. I didn't want to do it. I was nervous about doing it... Tina Knowles-Lawson, our hairstylist at the time, she said, 'You would look so great with short hair.' She cut my hair, and it was so fly. I was one of a kind. Everybody had their look. Short hair was mine, and I loved it."

#7. Bella Hadid

If you're a Bella fan, then you must be aware that she is a natural blonde. Or didn't you know? FYI, at the start of her career, she dyed her hair dark so that she is not mistaken for her gorgeous sis, Gigi Hadid. 

Whoa! So, she did that for a better recognition and differentiation.

Yeah, she looks just fab in that brunette bob, too. 

She admitted, "I just have a darker personality. And my sister being blonde and me being brunette, it's a good separation. I put a blonde wig on and think it would be fun to go back, but I'm happy with my hair. Blondes are so angelic. My sister can get away with anything."

Stylecaster, "Once [No Doubt bandmate Tony Kanal] broke up with me, my style changed loads too. It was just like, 'I'm going blonde.' Like, I don't care if I have to scrape all of my money together to get my roots done, I'm doing it. It was that kind of thing [where] it wasn't until the break-up that it really started."
