Katy Perry ends her purple reign.

Never underestimate the power of a new 'do. When a celebrity changes her hairstyle, it makes international headlines. In fact, it gets about as much attention as an engagement, a marriage or the birth of a baby.

As the season gets into full swing, mane makeover mania has blossomed. Katy Perry recently set the blogosphere ablaze with her new "slime green for spring" strands, while Nicki Minaj dropped jaws at the MTV Movie Awards last Sunday when she traded in her Crayola-colored tresses for (gasp!) a natural hair look.  

Spring represents the season of reflection and renewal. It's a time to think about rebirth and new life--especially as Easter approaches this Sunday and Passover concludes next Tuesday. So, if you're ready to freshen up your look, this might be the best time of the year to do.

However, it's not as easy as it sounds. If you need a little inspiration and motivation, check out the following must-have mane makeovers from style icons such as Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian, Shailene Woodley and Jennifer Lawrence. They'll add lots of spice and everything nice to your Easter and Passovers get-togethers. 

We've also assembled the latest hair products to maintain your new you 'do. These shampoos, conditioners, serums, masks and sprays will help your strands stay strong, soft and shiny.

Have a lovely holiday celebration!
