A Definitive Timeline of Chrissy Teigen’s Hair
Chrissy Teigen is widely known for her candid tweets, her priceless commentary and her relatable fails. But what you might not realize is that her hair has undergone quite the transformation over the years.
From choppy layers to bold bangs, keep reading for all the details on Chrissy Teigen’s hair evolution.
2009: Meet Chrissy Teigen
Teigen first stepped onto the scene in 2009 when she attended the 81st annual Academy Awards as now-husband John Legend’s date. The model sported long dark brown hair, which complemented her slightly-orange tan.
2010: Glamorously Dark
In 2010, Teigen went to the dark side with an all-black hairstyle, which featured loads of layers for dimension.
2012: Bold & Bangin'
Every girl has tried bangs at one point in her life, and Teigen is no different. The model attended the 2012 Billboard Music Awards and rocked a blunt set of fringe that appeared to hinder her eyesight.
2013: Classic Hollywood Hair
She eventually transitioned back to what is now considered her signature style, including a side-swept bang and long layers. (We’re totally digging her subtle ombré of caramel highlights.)
2014: Scratch that
After a two-year hiatus, we saw the return of Teigen’s straight-across bangs at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. But this time, she wore the rest of her hair down in a sleek, straight style.
2016: Blondes, er, Moms have more fun
The following year, she rocked a slightly shorter ’do and added blonde highlights, creating a beachy look that doesn’t require a ton of maintenance. (Teigen had recently welcomed her first child, Luna, so every mom can probably relate.)
2017: Long hair, don't care
Teigen wore her longest hairstyle to date at the Producers Guild Awards in 2017. She parted it down the center and styled it with beachy curls to low-key accent her sun-kissed highlights.
In 2018, Teigen chopped off her long locks and debuted a sleek bob. The model rocked a side part and layers to frame her face.
2019: Business as Usual
In early 2019, Teigen donned a light brown, medium length haircut, which she styled with soft curls.

2019: Lobbin' out
Fast-forward to December 2019, and Teigen chopped her hair into a lob (or “long bob”). The model’s hair now has choppy layers framing her face, along with platinum blonde highlights.
2020: The Mom Bob
In July 2020, the model/actress showed off her latest hairstyle, which is chopped right above her shoulders. Teigen debuted the cut in a quick video on her Instagram Story (screenshot above) and even tagged her hairstylist, Irinel de León, who helped her achieve the fabulous lob. “Short again,” she said in the clip.
If her track record is any indication, Teigen will be sporting a new haircut/color very soon.
