The Most Googled Celebrity Hairstyles of 2014
Swooning over celebrity hair is all part of a day’s work here at Brit + Co (we know, we have it real tough), so when we type in the names of our most recent girl crushes into Google, what’s most likely to pop up once the space bar smacks after their surnames is “hair.” Whether we’re searching for the perfect statement braid or simply swooning over the prettiest messy styles, we comb through pages of photos until we’ve found the looks we want for our own locks — then nine times out of 10, hack the hairdo and share the how-to with you!
So needless to say, we were pumped when we read that InStyle had compiled a list of the most popular celebrity hairstyles of the year so far, according to Google. The most searchable hairstyle of them all? It belongs to Jennifer Aniston, who’s long layers have been all the rage for decades. Other highlights of the 20 style-strong list include epic chops like Jennifer Lawrence’s pixie cut and Beyoncé’s sultry bob, as well as Christina Hendricks’ sleek red strands and Taylor Swift’s always-perfect waves.
