Between Olivia Palermo’s wedding outfit and the BET Awards red carpet, there was plenty to see on the style front this weekend — so you may have missed these noteworthy hair moments.

First up was Jennifer Hudson‘s semi-styled, Lloyd Christmas-esque pixie styling during her BET Awards performance. She normally does sassy bangs or a gelled-back look, so the combed-forward bowl cut style was a surprise. And lest you think it came easy, think again — her hairstylist Cesar Ramirez posted a pic of the full arsenal of products it took to get her do, and it seemed like it was no small feat.

Next is Miley Cyrus‘s pink-tinged, off-center swirly bun, held in place with a rhinestone star barrette. Her Instagram photo (caption: “I can make wealllly pwetttttty jewelry & faces 👅👀👽”) caught our attention for two reasons: First, her hair hasn’t been long enough for a bun in ages, and second, the pink-hued ends are a new development (and it’s not just an Insta filter — she took her dyed do on a walk later that day!). Her new puppy appears to approve.

Then we have Lily Collins, who took her shoulder-grazing cut even shorter over the weekend, showing off a chin-skimming bob while running errands in L.A. She’s already one of the best-tressed stars in the business, but we’re really loving this modern, fresh do on her. (And we’ll be honest, it’s fun to see a starlet stepping outside the “long ombré waves” trend this summer.)

Above, Lupita Nyong’o follows up on her stunning Vogue cover with an equally charming video for the magazine’s website, in which she reveals her secret talent: Hair braiding! She rounds up six good friends and demonstrates her skills on all of them. “It’s so important — if you jack someone’s hair up, the world sees it!” she jokes of the pressure to make her pals look good. If you watch one video today, make it this (though you may experience major FOMO if you are not one of Nyong’o’s BFFs already).

And finally, Karlie Kloss updated her enviably great bob with a warm golden hair color, which she showed off in Peru (some girls have all the luck). “Notice anything different with my hair?” she wrote in one photo, and later, she credited N.Y.C.’s Garren Salon for giving her the sexy, sun-kissed shade.

Whose transformation is your fave? How fun was that Lupita video? Tell us your thoughts in the comments!

That’s the best I’ve ever seen Lily Collins look. The large shades probably help.
