During 12 years, Karen Gillan has grown up from being a promising young Scottish actress to one of the biggest names in Hollywood. Notably with key roles in Doctor Who, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and the latest two Jumanji movies, Gillian’s Hollywood profile continues to rise, particularly as she steps behind-the-camera more. And if there is something that we love about Karen Gillan, it is that she is not afraid to wear any hairstyles. From the cute crop rocked in the early days to the ultimate mussed-up lob, Karen has spent the last few years proving there is no haircut she can’t handle. Take a closer look at her hair evolution now!
1. Long casual wavy hair
Karen Gillan is undoubtedly beautiful and sexy. She’s actually labeled as one of the young actresses that have the potential to become A-lister celebrities in the future. And why ever not? She seems to have all the qualities of what the crowd is looking for. One that had us really mesmerized is her casual long wavy hairstyle. This hairstyle is perfect! She looks so gorgeous wearing her redhead in perfect, stunning waves that are too beautiful to resist. However, it’s a bit difficult to achieve and you ladies definitely have to have patience since it might give you a bit of time to come up with this kind of hairstyle. But anyway, nothing is really difficult if this kind of hairstyle promises you a stunning look, right?
2. Funky waves
Karen Gillan looks extremely stylish and sexy here in a wavy shoulder-length bob. She has a beautiful oval face shape with a high rounded hairline and a medium straight hair type. This means she is best suited to hairstyles that add softness around her face through layering and waves, and ones that give her some coverage to balance out her high forehead. This bob does just the trick, with large loose funky waves through the mid-lengths to ends that add body and volume to her hair and frames her features attractively.
3. Milkmaid Braid
When arriving at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards, Karen did so style. As well as playing Doctor Who’s assistant Amy Pond, Karen Gillan is arguably most famous for her long red hair. But for this event the actress was almost unrecognisable with her locks tied up into a Heidi-style top milkmaid braid. And the look just goes to prove that Karen can pull off any hairstyle.
4. Blunt Bangs
Most of time, Karen Gillan doesn’t have bangs. But when she does, we’ve got to say, thick blunt bangs suits the actress well. That bangs + emotional eyes = perfect girl next door look. The burgundy color keeps the look modern and trendy.
5. Shave head
There’s a myth running around in certain circles that the minute you start going bald, your life is supposedly over and it’s all downhill from there. Well, the truth is that going hairless isn’t the end — it’s just the beginning. And Karen Gillan is a perfect example that a bald head doesn’t diminish someone’s beauty. She went bald for the role in Guardians of the Galaxy. We don’t know for sure whether we could do it but Karen looks amazing. Do you agree with us?
6. Pixie-Bob And Wavy Upswept Bangs
For one of her premiere looks, Karen Gillan also decided to show up with a shorter-than-usual haircut. This short version of pixie-bob gives a lot of volume to the back portion, and to keep the perfect balance in the front, the actress chose to go for wavy upswept bangs. Karen keeps her pixie long enough on top to curl, making her hairstyle trendy and attractive by trying many unique styles. And we have to admit that her beautiful amber-colored hair pairs with her hazel eyes quite well.
7. Wavy Bob
Besides her topnotch acting chops, Karen Gillan is usually known for her long, gorgeous auburn tresses. But the Dr. Who actress has also tried short, messy styles in the past too—and we love this chin-length ‘do that still feels consistent with her usual aesthetic (tousled beach waves).
8. Sleek straight lob
Not only does she have pixie hair for her collection of short hairstyles but she also appears with other hairstyles. A straight lob is actually a short hairstyle which is very suitable for her appearance. The lob with blunt cut ends and side-part style make her round chubby face look much thinner. Especially, the light brown hair with impressive sleek hair locks accentuates her appearance, making it more elegant and neat.
9. Impressive Old Hollywood waves
What can look better than auburn hair colors and waves? Indeed, the combo is very impressive. These old Hollywood waves of Karen Gillan make us admire. These waves represent a mixture of femininity and lady vamp. The perfect bouncy waves, in S shape, have always attracted attention. With this hair lock, we are damn sure that Karen will be the talk of the town.
10. Elegant high ponytail
For the European gala screening of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Karen wore her hair in a sexy, messy ponytail. And this is an inspired hairstyle for those who are finding a fighting a fizz solution. A voluminous ponytail with a hair-wrapped band will add something extra to your quick fix morning style. Frizz and flyaways just add to the messy effect.
