“Breakover” Hair

close formula

Earlier this year, when Hiddleswift (that’s Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston, in case you don’t speak millennial) was first spotted, fans immediately noticed something different about the “1989” singer (in addition to her new beau). Her blonde hair, which she dyed an edgy platinum just a few months earlier, was restored to a more natural, ashy tone. The speculation began. Was the change a breakup makeover (aka breakover) after her split from longtime love Calvin Harris? Did her return to natural have anything to do with her new BF? -KH


Taylor’s is just the latest in a string of rumored celebrity hair breakovers. Here’s a look at more news-making celebrity breakup transformations.


Taylor’s White Hot to Natural Transformation




PRAVANA Artistic Color Director Vadre Grigsby shows us how to recreate the singer’s platinum-to-sandy-blonde shift with the PRAVANA ChromaSilk Lowlights Collection and ColorLush Demi-Gloss.

 Taylor went platinum when things got rocky between her and ex Calvin Harris, then ditched her ultra-blonde locks for a darker, more natural hue right after connecting with then BF Tom Hiddleston. Coincidence, or breakover?


Miley Cyrus




Was Miley Cyrus’ now-famous chop—which happened right around the time she called off her engagement to Liam Hemsworth—a sign of the breakup to come? 


Khloe Kardashian




Queen of the “breakover,” Khloe Kardashian, has gotten blonder and
blonder since her split from Lamar Odom.


Joe Jonas




Joe Jonas was feeling blue following his split from model Gigi Hadid.


Gwen Stefani




While going through a divorce from Gavin Rossdale, Gwen Stefani
