Dua Lipa has quickly become one of the most popular pop singers in the industry in an incredibly short amount of time. After only being signed in 2015, she’s since won eight Grammy’s (in just six years) and routinely produces hit after hit after hit. I mean, talk about taking a rocket ship straight to stardom. But it isn’t just her singles that leave fans obsessed and wanting more. It’s also her showstopping commitment to changing up her look. The pop star doesn’t shy away from a vibrant and daring hair color change up or from a shocking new ‘do, so in honor of her seat at the top of the pop and hair food chain, here’s a look back at Dua Lipa’s hair evolution over the years.

What makes Dua Lipa’s hair evolution so fun is that she’s unafraid to try new things. She’s done e-girl bangs, practically started the split-dye trend, and is willing to play with length. She even created her own new style of hair dye to kickoff 2022. But what really stands out is how often she changes her hair. I don’t think the singer could last a whole year without changing up her hair at least a little.

Whether you’ve followed Dua Lipa from the beginning or are just beginning to understand what a powerhouse this pop queen is, you’ll be in awe of just how many different hairstyles she’s rocked in the last eight years. From the bobs to the Cher looks, here is Dua Lipa’s hair evolution from 2015 all the way to 2022.

When Dua Lipa first signed with Warner Music Group in 2015, back before all the fame, she was rocking her natural brown hair. Of course, even back then, her middle-part game was going full force.

The “Levitating” singer was doing two-toned egirl streaks far before it became a TikTok craze. Back in 2019, Dua Lipa had just the upper layer of her hair dyed platinum blonde and the rest was her signature dark brown.

2022: Dua Lipa With Tie-Dye Hair

To start 2022 off on fun footing, Dua Lipa’s invented a new hairstyle. The 26-year-old brought back her dual-tone, but she added orange and green swirls to it to create a tie-dye effect. The look was colorful, psychedelic, and unlike any hairdo I’ve ever seen before.

2022: Dua Lipa With Piecey Bangs

During an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon in March 2022, the soon-to-be Firefly Musical headliner didn’t just “reclaim” her viral TikTok dance, she debuted a new look that’s *so* on trend: piecey bangs.

Though known for her singing, Dua Lipa is also a budding movie star. She is set to make her acting debut in Apple TV+’s upcoming spy thriller Argylle, and the first look photo is already making me sweat. Not only is she dancing opposite Henry Cavill, she’s also showing off a new blonde chop. It’s a yes for me.

I don’t even know which one of these pictures to show to my hairstylist next.
