For whatever reason, 2007 proved to be an interesting year at the salon…with celebs and their stylists getting shear happy, we saw a lot of stunning styles on the red carpet. Some looks were groundbreaking, others were shocking, and others yet were tried and true revivals of styles from another era. Either way, it’s going to be a challenge to create new looks in 2008 that will rival these. In no particular order, here’s some of the most infamous looks in hot hair of 2007:

Though many will argue just who started the big bang revival, I attribute this look to Anne Hathaway’s character in “The Devil Wears Prada.” After her hip girl-about-town makeover, every corner of NY was brimming with newly banged fashionista’s. Youthful and fresh, this is my favorite new look of ’07.

Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham rocked the fashion world when she debuted her blonde bob this year. Some say it was her way of celebrating her move to the US, but I call it a stroke of genius. This look was immediately imitated by everyone from Paris Hilton to Selma Blair and more.

Katie Holmes stole the spotlight from her hubby Tom Cruise at the 2007 Bambi awards with her chic and glossy banged bob. Like something right out of the roaring 20’s, Katie’s newly banged bob was one part classy, one part trendy and a whole lotta cute.
Amy Winehouse (source)
Troubled chanteuse Amy Winehouse became a beacon for alterna-fashionista’s everywhere with her unique look and larger-than-life hairdo. Her infamous updo proved that you don’t have to look a certain way to make fashion waves.
Britney Spears (source)
I couldn’t resist…you can’t talk about hair in 2007 without mentioning Brit-Brit’s run in with the razor. Whether induced by post-partum depression, drugs and alchohol or just plain frustration with bad weave, our favorite pop tart shocked the world and shaved her head. Yikes!
Have a safe and happy New Year!
