With red carpet events, parties, and fashion week, completely back in full swing, it’s no surprise that 2022 was packed with many shocking celebrity beauty moments. This was the year where the stars brought playfulness back into their creative hair and makeup. From Julia Fox’s intentionally messy eyeshadow, to Doja Cat’s full body paint looks, to MGK’s $30,000 diamond manicure, it was impossible to predict what we might see next.
Ahead, we wrap up the boldest, wildest, and most surprising celebrity beauty looks of the year.

Model sister duo Gigi and Bella proved they can truly pull off any look, when they both walked the runway for Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2022 in bowl-cut mullets.
Although she’s only nine years old, North West was the best dressed celeb at Paris Couture Fashion Week. We especially loved her chain nose ring at the John Paul Gautier show.
After setting the two-toned hair trend in 2020, Dua Lipa appeared to have returned to her dark roots. However the singer did have a surprising blonde moment at the 2022 Grammys— if only for the night.
