Colombian songbird Shakira recently unveiled her new shorter, straighter hairdo, which came as a shock to her fan base—after all, since Shakira burst onto the mass music scene with Hips Don’t Lie, she has been known for her wild curly hair. Some think that it was time for Shakira to embrace a new, more mature look, and others thought that she committed the ultimate faux pas by getting rid of her signature tresses. Let’s take at look at Shakira’s hair evolution over the years and see the transformation.

Shakira hairstylesAt the height of Shakira’s popularity, she was very tanned with a dark golden color. Her skin and her eye color looked nice with this warm shade of dark blonde. She also had some golden medium brown shades in the bottom layers.  Even though it was obvious that it wasn’t her natural hair color, she could still pull it off well, and the wild curls suited her energetic personality.
