So far, 2017 has been filled with countless beauty and fashion trends. As we really look at the trends that have been popular, they’re quite different than those we’ve seen in the past few years. Big transitions seem to be a theme this year, with quite a few celebs who’ve taken the big chop-with their hair that is. There’s definitely a lot of celebs still rocking their gorgeously long locks, but quite a few notable celebs have decided to chop their hair to a pretty drastically different length. It can be incredibly refreshing to chop your hair, if you’ve been debating chopping your own hair-take a look at a few celebs who’ve taken the big chop for a little inspiration.

Selena has been pretty loyal to long hair since she came into the Hollywood scene. She’s always been known and admired for her gorgeously dark, shiny locks. But this year, in the spring specifically, she decided to change things up a bit and go for the big chop. She didn’t go subtly, either. Selena opted to go for a chop in a BIG way by embracing a bob haircut. The bob length resets just above her jawline, making for a big change from her long locks she’s been known for.

Mrs. West has been known to change up her hair every once in a while, but typically always stuck with a longer length. Later in 2016 and into 2017, she took her length to an extreme by rocking waist length hair. But even the queen of social media herself couldn’t seem to resist the big chop this spring. Yep, she went from waist length locks to a blunt lob style overnight. (Literally, overnight) Sticking with her preference for sleek hair lately, Kim chose to go with a blunt lob style that rests just above her shoulders in length and has been seen wearing it in a super straight style.

It’s definitely been the year of hair goddesses going for the big chop! Jennifer Lopez is another celeb that’s always been admired for her gorgeous hair, generally sticking with a longer length. However, this spring (spring was definitely the season of change this year) JLo chopped her length off for a big change. She, too, opted for a lob length-a bit longer than a bob, but just around shoulder length.

It’s safe to say all of these ladies look stunning in their newly chopped hair. The big chop is a major trend this year, and we don’t see it slowing down anytime soon. Of course, if you’re considering going for the big chop yourself make sure you have a conversation with your hair stylist to choose the right chopped length for you.
