As we’ve already noted, 2013 was a transformative year for many celebs! Most of these changes had to do with dramatic hair ’do departures, which sometimes altered their looks for the good, and other times…not so much.

Beyonce shocked us all when she debuted her super-short look via Instagram over the summer! We’d never seen her with short hair before, and to be honest we weren’t sure how we felt about it. But apparently Queen Bey was quite sure, because we never saw her sans-tresses again following those few selfies!

Jennifer Hudson and Jennifer Lawrence, on the other hand, both have been experimenting with shorter styles in recent months, and they definitely seem to be embracing the short and sweet low-maintenence style. Some fashion chameleons change up their hair about as often as we change our socks (every six weeks), so it’s impossible to keep all of their looks straight. But we definitely noticed Rihanna, Alicia Keys, and Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss change it up this year.

From shoulder length chops like Jennifer Aniston (and her bestie Chelsea Handler) to complete head shaves like Jessie J’s famous charity crop, the lengths ran the gammut. But scissors took some serious snips this year. Head up to the gallery above to see some of the most daring new ’dos of 2013!
