The heartbreak haircut: we’ve all been there.
The end of a relationship often spells the end of your go-to do. As those of us that have had a break up cut (or a few) can attest, sheering off your strands is a simple, satisfying way to let go a little bit. While some experts caution against making major mane changes while you’re getting over an ex, we happen to think there’s nothing wrong with a little post-romance revamp. And it looks like some of Hollywood’s most famous faces agree.
From Ana de Armas to Cara Delevingne, these are the best celebrity breakup cuts of all time.
1. Selena Gomez
Who could forget this iconic break up mane moment? When Selena Gomez went for a platinum blonde lob following her split from The Weeknd our jaws hit the floor.
2. Katy Perry
That’s right, Katy Perry’s now iconic pixie cut was actually a post-split decision. When the superstar and her beau, Orlando Bloom, broke up in 2017, Perry took the plunge and opted for this punkish ‘do. The couple have since rekindled their romance, btw.
3. Cara Delevigne
Cara Delevingne has pulled off pretty much every cut in the books. When the supermodel ended things with musician St. Vincent, she chopped her signature long blonde locks in favor of this white hot bob. Now there’s a power couple we miss, tbh.
4. Sarah Hyland
Sarah Hyland is a master of the break up bob. The Modern Family star ditched her long brunette tresses in favor of a blunt, chin-length cut back in 2015 when she and long-time boyfriend Matthew Prokop split.
5. Gwen Stefani
When pop star Gwen Stefani and ex-husband Gavin Rossdale called it quits, she said goodbye to her long blonde mane. This blonde dip-dyed lob was an excellent post-relationship move.
6. Olivia Culpo
When Olivia Culpo broke things off with Nick Jonas, she also parted with about 6 inches of her brunette mane. We miss the model’s cute break up crop.
7. Khloé Kardashian
The reality star went all in on a brand new ‘do when she and Lamar Odom ended their relationship in 2015. Khloé traded her long brunette locks for a blonde, shoulder-length cut we loved.
8. Ana de Armas
Following her break up with Ben Affleck, Ana de Armas went and got the ultimate cool girl bob. With above-the-eyebrow bangs and some light layers, this post-relationship cut will go down in the history books.
