Mariah Carey’s Hairstyles Over the Years

- Advertisement -

Mariah Carey is one of the most talented singers of all time. Her voice is magical and she has given us lots of hit songs over the years. She is beautiful and likes to style in different ways. She gives a lot of effort to make her look good just like any other celebrity. Her hair is something many fashion lovers talk about. She has beautiful curls on her long hair. The hair is voluminous and attractive.

In the early days of her career, she was mostly seen in these curls. But as the years went by she changed her hairstyle to wavy locks. She chose a lighter color than before and added some bangs. She kept on experimenting with both curly and golden wavy hair for some time. In 2005 we explored her in a straight long hairstyle. She looked very refreshing at the BET Honors Gala in 2012 with her half updo. In 2016 we rediscovered her in the straight long hairstyle parting in the middle. But again she loves her curls. So, she went back to her signature style. Mariah Carey hasn’t done any bold color on her hair. She has always loved the golden, auburn and brown hues. We love her subtle waves. Sometimes adding bangs accentuates her features.

Here’s Mariah Carey’s hairstyles over the years.
