It's safe to say 2014 was an awesome year for Jennifer Aniston. She silenced her critics and majorly upped her acting cred with roles in several critically-acclaimed films, interviewed Gloria Steinem, and got engaged to boyfriend Justin Theroux. She also changed her hair color back to her natural sandy blonde, and at 45, she's never looked more gorgeous. (Get glowing with 12 Beauty Products for Gorgeous Winter Skin.)

If 2014 was Jennifer Aniston's year, 2015 is it for Jennifer Lopez. After finalizing her divorce last year, the 45-year-old American Idol judge and mom of two is reviving her acting career with a new movie, and has been making headlines for her bombshell red carpet looks. All-over blonde highlights are just the icing on the cake for J.Lo's fresher-than-ever look.

Her new rich brown color is signaling to the world that she's ready for a sophisticated, understated look. (Think you can't work out while pregnant?

Is it just us or did Kerry Washington suddenly top everyone's list of favorite celebs in 2014? Last year, the Scandal star got married, had a baby, and launched a clothing line, all while carrying a major network TV show. Subtle ombre highlights only up Kerry's cool factor even more.

What are babylights, you ask? They're subtle blonde streaks that make your hair look naturally sun-kissed, kind of like when you were a kid. For Miranda Kerr, whose whose organic skincare line, Kora Organics, really exploded last year, the natural look couldn't be a more perfect (or pretty) fit.

This punchy, vibrant red hue, streaked subtly with some blonde, feels really fresh for Emma Stone, who went from blonde to red last year.

Mindy Kaling says her new color was "inspired by Rihanna," which we think is kind of awesome. Even if you're not producing and starring in your own hit sitcom like Kaling, highlights like these are sure to inspire you to do something just as great.

If anyone makes the case for dirty blonde, it's Jennifer Lawrence. The 24-year-old's star prowess has grown to exponential heights, but she still sports this laid-back, unfussy look.
