11 Looks in Britney Spears’ Hair Journey

Britney Spears turns 35 tomorrow – and as we like to do with all celebrity idols/hair trendsetters on their birthday, we’re giving her (and you) the gift of her colourful hair history (with that unfortunate shaved head moment graciously left on the cutting room floor).

Known as an iconic blonde, the pop star has actually been both a red head and a brunette, as well as ahead of her time with the bob, a proponent for cascading curls and the very representation of the 90s straight hair trend at some point over her long career – and, of course, she famously rocked those plaited pigtails in the Hit Me Baby One More Time video – good luck ever getting that song out of your head now.

Here are some of our favourite looks in her hair evolution – a timeless inspiration haven for your clients, or simply some beloved retro callbacks, from the style and pop queen.

1. Although later a famous blonde, this natural brunette look is Britney pre-mega fame.


2. Simple curls, a subtle brunette colour and an actual tiara are the picture of innocence.


3. And it doesn’t get any more classic than those aforementioned plaits.



4. She’s also had dalliances over the year with brunette colour…


5. The red head look…


6. Vibrant colour…


7. And even bold streaks.


8. She’s adopted a more mature bob…

9. A severe fringe…

10. And wild curls.


11. But Brit is perhaps most well-known for her effortless curls and perfect blonde hue.


Happy birthday Britney!
