The star of hit television show Scandal, which has been running since 2012, Kerry Washington turned 40 in January. Married with two children, Washington is also known for her roles in Django Unchained and Ray, and her success looks set to continue on well into the future.

Kanye West
American rapper Kanye West turned 40 in June, and he has certainly accomplished so much in his 40 years of life. In addition to being an award-winning rapper, West is also a fashion designer and a record producer, as well as a father, and a husband to celebrity Kim Kardashian.

Shakira
Shakira rose to fame in the English-language music market in 2002, with her single “Whenever, Wherever”, which most of you likely remember. In February of this year, the singer turned 40, but is still keeping busy, and is rumoured to be working on her eleventh studio album.

Orlando Bloom
Orlando Bloom is another star that turned 40 in January, and while he may have starred in several movies over the years, his most-loved roles are the ones that he played in Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean. A month after the star’s birthday, his relationship with singer Katy Perry ended, and the award-winning actor has since revealed that he is looking for someone new to settle down with.

Sarah Michelle Gellar
An actress and producer, Sarah Michelle Gellar was first spotted by an agent in New York at the tender age of four, after which she starred in her first television movie. The star’s worldwide recognition came from her role in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and she has continued to feature in a number of television shows and movies since then. Although the actress turned 40 in April, she has not let this slow her down, and continues to develop her various entrepreneurial start-ups, while focussing on her acting career at the same time.

Liv Tyler
Liv Tyler, a beautiful American actress and former model, turns 40 this July. Her career began at the age of 14, when she started modeling, but quickly turned her attention to acting. This resulted in success for Tyler, as she ended up starring in a number of different roles, both television and movie, but has continued to give back to the community by serving as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador since 2003.

Stand-Out Celeb Haircuts of 2015

Celebrity haircuts are always evolving, from styles that we desperately want to recreate to others that we can’t quite understand and would be happy to see the end of. While there have been a huge number celebrity hair transformations over the past year, there are some that have really made their mark, so read on for some of OROGOLD’s picks of the stand-out celebrity haircuts of 2015.

Naomi Campbell
For years, supermodel Naomi Campbell has had luscious long hair, but this changed in November 2015. At the British Fashion Awards that month, Campbell showcased her new look – a short, layered bob that is fun, flirty and extremely stylish.

Lauren Conrad

Lauren Conrad
Fashion and style icon Lauren Conrad has rocked her blonde locks for so long that we almost didn’t recognize her with her new hair color. 2015 saw Conrad say goodbye to her signature golden color and opt for a romantic strawberry shade instead. For those of you who have been wanting to experiment with a new hair color, let 2016 be the year that you do so!

Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez is another star that swapped her long locks for a textured bob in 2015. Jlo’s was first seen showcasing her new cut in May, with the shoulder-length texture giving her a sophisticated vibe.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner
Fashion model Kendall Jenner’s new haircut was debuted at the AMA’s in November 2015, and featured long, sleek bangs. Her new fringe gave her quite an edgy vibe, and, due to its length, can be styled in quite a few different ways. While Jenner may have had a number of different cuts and styles over the year, this is one that OROGOLD thinks will really catch on in 2016.

Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington
Kerry Washington was another celebrity that showed off some new bangs in 2015. While it can sometimes be off-putting when the same style is frequently seen, each of these gorgeous ladies have shown us that bangs can be so flattering when done properly, for just about any face shape.

Donatella Versace
Donatella Versace’s signature hairstyle for the past decade has been long and platinum blonde, but she decided to change that in June 2015, and her decision definitely paid off. Instead of her long, straight strands, Versace now rocks a textured bob, still in her signature platinum color. Her new bob is shoulder-length and extremely stylish, giving her a trendy and youthful vibe without going over the top.

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron
In September 2015, Charlize Theron shed her shoulder-length locks for a pixie cut, a move that many of us would certainly consider to be very daring. However, Theron’s stunning bone structure works with just about any look, and OROGOLD thinks that she definitely suits her new style.

From flirty, textured bobs to sleek, long bangs to vibrant new colors, 2015 saw a variety of different haircuts on our favorite celebrities. If you have been inspired by any of these stars to switch up your own style, OROGOLD suggests doing it soon, so that you can begin 2016 with your fresh new look.
