From Britney shaving her hair off to Posh's constant updates to the 'pob', 2007 was certainly the year when celebrity hairstyles hit the headlines.
These are the hair icons of 2007, according to some of the biggest names in the industry...
|Andrew Barton, Saks Hair & Beauty, London "2007 was certainly the year of the haircut as celebs chopped and changed their looks. Victoria’s pob metamorphosed in an array of different finishes, colours and lengths. It really was the year of the haircut. Girls who would never previously have dreamed of having their locks chopped suddenly turned over a new leaf. Whether you love or hate her, Victoria is a style icon and what she does others follow and emulate."|
|Guy Kremer, Guy Kremer International, Winchester, Hampshire "Model Agyness, who is featuring in the current Dior and Burberry campaigns, is a modern-day Linda Evangelista. She has a short blonde crop at the moment but she has also been red and brunette this year. She has done a lot for our colour bookings during 2007."|
|Mark Leeson, Mark Leeson Hair, Body & Mind, Mansfield, Nottingham "Katie looked wonderful this year and manages to pull off both long and short hair with complete ease. Her most recent sleek bob frames her face perfectly and looks gorgeous when worn choppy and voluminous or smooth and glossy. It is a classic with a twist and right on trend."|
|Nick Irwin, TIGI "Within two seasons Keira has seamlessly moved through major fashion trends, starting with a short, pretty, feminine haircut that had a strong 60s feel to a softer, longer bob shape. She’s also given a nod to her hairstyle from the film Atonement appearing at red carpet events with a 20s/30s look, which is a trend that was seen on the catwalks for spring/summer 2008. I think her timing and her taste are impeccable; she is a real style icon."|
|Errol Douglas, London "The celebrity that has stood out the most for me over the past year is Sienna, she is the epitome of cool. She can carry off so many styles and she isn’t afraid to take risks. She is the actress equivalent of Kate Moss – she does red carpet glam with such ease, but also looks incredible when she is taking the dogs for a walk."|
|Angelo Seminara, Trevor Sorbie "Kate has transformed herself by having a heavy fringe cut and updating her layers. Suddenly, she is no longer the rock chick but the sophisticated girl about town. The style is a great way to update long hair while retaining the length."|
|Phil Smith, Toni & Guy, Salisbury "I love Joss’s haircut. It really suits her personality and her hippy chick appearance. I also think it’s the perfect look for her career as it provides her with versatility to meet all occasions. I actually camped beside her one year at Glastonbury and her hair looked great even after two days in the madness of a huge festival. The only thing I would change about this look would be her colour. It’s a very bold and brave look and she’s obviously trying to make a statement, but I would encourage her to return to her natural shade."|
|Antoinette Beenders, Aveda "Amy has brought the beehive back with a vengeance. It has become the celebrity hairstyle of the year overtaking the pob. A-list fans include Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Kelly Osbourne and Mischa Barton who have all been sporting beehives. The Winehouse influence has also given the beehive serious street cred and is bringing lots of young women into salons. This will be the look of the Christmas party season."|
