We truly never know what to expect from Cardi B and her hairstylist Tokyo Stylez. This time around, the rapper showed off a super-long black wig with a thick hot pink stripe running straight through the center. Chunky highlights are making a major comeback in 2020, and we're absolutely loving Cardi's twist on the look.

To celebrate her return to Instagram after a two-month hiatus, Nicki Minaj went back to her roots with pastel pink hair. While the rapper has worn nearly every shade of pink throughout her career, this unit is a bit different with platinum blonde face-framing strips at the front and throughout the piece. It's a friendly reminder that pink is and will always be Minaj's color.

Jada Pinkett Smith
Jada Pinkett Smith has been wearing long, blonde braids for a while. Although the style didn't make it into 2020, she decided to keep the color. Now, the actress has short blonde hair styled with curly bangs, a look that not many can pull off, though, Smith makes it look easy.
Beyoncé surprised fans in December with two pieces of news. First, she announced the relaunch of her activewear brand Ivy Park. Second, she did so with beaded box braids that spelled it all out. Ivy Park is dropping on January 18, at which point we'll probably still be screaming over this masterpiece.
Ms. Stewart's fresh layers — and that pose/contour combo — had fans losing their minds. Her shoulder-length hair is shaggier than ever, and her ends are snipped and flipped to perfection. Judging by this smize, Stewart was certainly pleased with the salon services at Rita Hazan.
Jennifer Lopez has worn so many waist-length hairstyles lately that we feel lighter just looking at this new chop, courtesy of Chris Appleton. Chances are, this is Lopez's real length sans extensions — but we love the lob so much we wish she'd keep it.
Millie Bobby Brown
Millie Bobby Brown may not have been born yet when Dirty Dancing was first released, but apparently she's seen the classic and is ready for her own “nobody puts baby in the corner” moment. After spending some time with mid-length extensions, she's back to this shorter bob and experimenting with this '80s-style, wavy texture.

You ever just want to do something dramatic to your hair? Amandla Stenberg can relate. Stenberg posted a mirror selfie to Instagram showing their latest hair change: bold, blue box braids. The braids have a dark-to-light ombré effect, which you can clearly see in a video her hairstylist Lacy Redway posted showing off the new style. It's a look that has us seriously considering a trip to the braider's.
