All the glorious stops along Dua Lipa's ever-changing hair journey
From a raven bob to red bangs

At this point, the only thing Dua Lipa has had more of than hits is hair colours.
And while quarantine has certainly brought out her bright side, she's been experimenting with edgy cuts and out-of-the-box colours for as long as she's been on the scene.
She's not afraid to test-drive a trend and that's why we love her - buckle up, we're about to take you along for Lipa's whole hair journey.
Colour: Dark Chocolate
Lipa began her career with a classic cut and colour combo: long locks in a glossy cocoa shade. And while we're fans of any mane this shiny, we must admit we love the edgier aesthetic she's embraced since.
Cut & Colour: Midnight Black Bob
Ditching her traditional tresses in one fell swoop, Lipa debuted a charcoal chop, AKA the glossy black bob we came to know well throughout the first few years of her success.
Cut: The Cleopatra
Ah, her first foray into fringe territory. Was it a wig? It's highly likely. But with a style this strong we'd like to believe she rocked it for more than a night. Big Cleopatra energy.
Colour: Black & Blonde
Ah, the very look that had us considering digging out our old Nokia's from the 00's. Yep, Lipa made a wildly convincing case for a stark-contrasting nostalgia-inducing black and blonde blend.
Cut: The Mullet
No Joe Exotic jokes here; this was before his time. The lack of length technically wasn't a choice, though: "PSA: This is not a haircut. It's bleach breakages, but I'm runnin' w[ith] it," Lipa revealed.
Not to worry, her mane was soon in better shape than ever, even with the bleached blonde shade in tow. Worn down, the black is barely visible, and we think Lipa looks gorgeous platinum.
Few people have embraced the social distancing-sparked DIY hair colour trend like Lipa. In fact, her boyfriend and quarantine buddy Anwar Hadid was the colourist behind this baby pink shade.

Making her way through the rainbow, Lipa switched her shade from pink to peach after mere weeks. Her summary of the vibe and the reason behind it? "Orangina quarantina," she captioned the colour reveal.

Leaving pastels in the past, her latest colour change saw her seeing red - and it's glorious. As for what's next, we can only guess burgundy based on the tonal journey she seems to have taken so far?
Get the look with: Joico Colour Intensity Colour Butter in Red Rouge
Swapping her bold red-and-black split for a glossy all-over brunette, Lipa made a triumphant return to the dark side, switching back to the same warm chocolate shade we met her with. Talk about full circle.
It doesn't get much cooler than a set of jet black bangs, now does it? Leave it to Lipa to add a twist to the trend, though, opting to embrace a front fringe in the most side-swept way possible.
Cut & colour: Copper bangs
While she's technically done 'red' before, it was more of an 'Ariel from The Little Mermaid' ruby red than a natural copper one. Sure, 'natural' may technically still be a stretch this time around, considering it appears to be a wig worn for a recent Versace campaign, but we're giant fans of the look nonetheless.
