Lana Del Rey has been a staple presence on our inspo boards ever since she hit the scene with her iconic album Born to Die. With waist-length chocolate waves, her retro starlet aesthetic is the kind of glamorous that never gets old. And while we love the singer/songwriter’s signature waves, Del Rey has rocked a number of other killer cuts and colors, nailing pretty much any style she tries. We rounded up the pop star’s 16 best hair moments, from classic curls to banging beehives. Read on to see why we can’t get enough of Lana’s locks.
1. Waist-Grazing Waves
Lana Del Rey has been giving us major mane envy with this gorgeous glossy mane since her iconic Born to Die era. This 2012 look is truly timeless.
This songstress can pull off even the most dated retro style. With perfectly puffed up strands, Del Rey nails this 60s staple.
3. Messy Tresses
Even Lana's messy waves are a masterpiece. We love the singer's pushed-back bangs and piecey undone curls.
4. Retro Half-Up 'Do
Lana Del Rey was ahead of the game with this gorgeous copper color and a heavy set of curtain bangs. This face-framing half-up style pairs perfectly with the star's signature winged eye liner.
5. Auburn Curls
Motion to bring back this shimmering auburn hue? The singer's red-tinged locks are absolutely show-stopping with a center part and some simple chest-length waves.
With just the right amount of volume, Lana's puffed-up locks stole the show at Elton John's 2016 Oscars viewing party. We love the simple sophistication of her glossy brushed back waves.
7. Floral Accessories
Lana took festival hair to the next level with her 2016 Outside Lands look. With a few expertly-placed floral accessories and natural-looking waves, the songwriter became the ultimate boho babe.
8. Laidback Locks
While we love seeing Lana all dolled up, her low-key locks wow us on a consistent basis. Here, the star's chestnut shade and natural hair texture take center stage.
9. Voluminous Street Style
The songstress has been serving some stellar street style over the past decade. This fluffed-up undone 'do is just one of many unique daytime styles only Del Rey could rock.
10. Old Hollywood Glam
Pincurls Katharine Hepburn herself would be proud of. 1940s glamour is an essential Del Rey style. These smooth and shapely waves compliment the singer's deep brunette shade.
11. Kicked-In Lob
With ultra-smooth strands, Lana executes this vintage lob like a pro. She takes this retro aesthetic a step further with a shimmering star-studded crown.
12. Celestial Strands
This songstress pulled out all of the stops for the 2018 Met Gala. Lana nailed the "heavenly bodies" theme with this halo-inspired headpiece and her ultra-long locks.
13. Hippie Headband
A simple headband goes a long way. This studded accessory puts an eye-catching twist on the singer's perfectly coiled strands.
14. Side-Parted Curls
We're big fans of Del Rey's shorter styles. The pop star's ombrè-tinged locks are ready for the red carpet with these well-defined curls.
15. Ribbon Braids
With a mane like Lana's, anything is possible. We're over the moon for the singer's ribbon-adorned set of dutch braids. The bright green silk gives her little white dress a daring pop of color.
16. Lust For Life
Who can forget Del Rey's iconic Lust for Life album cover? London-based hairstylist Anna Cofone gave the singer a serene set of daisy embellishments for this stunning shot.
