Britney Spears’ Most Iconic Hair Moments Throughout the Years

Britney Spears is a legend, icon, and star in every sense of the words. Her illustrious career has taken many forms over the years, and so has her style. We wanted to walk through some of Britney’s most iconic hair moments just because.

Britney has always been a mane muse of ours and likely will continue to be. So strap on your walking shoes as we take a stroll down memory lane!

‘…Baby One More Time’ Braided Pigtails

Britney first burst onto the scene and into our hearts with her iconic “…Baby One More Time” music video. We will never forget this video, especially this braided pigtails moment. From the scrunchies to the ribbons to the wispy bangs, everything about this hairstyle is pure perfection.

Girl Next Door

Britney’s dirty blonde layers had her looking like the ultimate girl next door, but with a slight edge. This feathered style was everywhere once Britney’s star began to rise. Even now, it’s becoming a fairly popular hairstyle, proving Britney was ahead of her time.

High Pigtails

Britney really made pigtails popular. From her music videos to her tour looks, she rocked them like no other during the peak of the Y2K era.

Low-Maintenance Bob

When Britney chopped her locks into this bob look, so did just about everyone else. She always looks so chic and laidback in her low-maintenance bob. We wish we gave off those vibes.

‘Oops!…I Did It Again’ Sleek Style

Who hasn’t attempted to recreate this hairstyle once or twice in their lifetime? The chunky highlights and hair headband elevate this look like no other. No one was doing it like Britney.

Feathered Fairytale

There’s not a single person who doesn’t remember this moment in pop culture history. As much as we adore this denim ensemble, the hair is always what gets us. Britney’s perfectly feathered layers look like a dream.

Messy Curls

Britney’s 2001 MTV Video Music Awards performance still replays in our head almost every day. We think about every aspect, especially her curls. They were messy and disheveled in the coolest way possible. No longer did anyone care about having perfect ringlets, it was all about making them look messy.

Newsboy Caps

Britney loved her hats in the early 2000s. She really made the newsboy cap a staple in everyone’s hat accessories.

Britney always made her bangs work for her. We lived for this 2012 look from her time as a judge on Fox’s The X Factor.

Colorful Curls

Britney has often kept her hair blonde or brunette for most of her career. When she added some blue and purple to her blonde locks, we desperately wanted this style. Again, Britney can really pull off any color.

Brunette Bombshell

Britney is almost synonymous with blonde hair, but she also rocks it as a brunette. Case in point, her dark strands at the 2019 Daytime Beauty Awards.
