Mya's curls have been poppin' since the '90s, when her sweet sounding voice first hit radio waves. And if these red carpet moments are any indication, she hasn't aged either:

Mya attended the University of Maryland, College Park, #10 on ESSENCE and Money's list of 50 Best Colleges for African-Americans.

Regardless of when she does or doesn't release new music, she's one of those beauties that we'll always appreciate, simply because she's never been afraid to evolve her look over the years. Thankfully, we have her carefully curated Instagram to look to when we need a little inspiration in the hair department.

As of late, she appears to be living her best life in exotic locales and making sure her coif is just as alluring.

Maybe it's the gold accessories. Perhaps it's her seemingly makeup free face or high ponytail. Whatever the "it" factor is, we're obsessed with this mane moment. This certainly isn't the first time she's rocked a protective style and we're sure it won't be the last. We look forward to seeing what she does next!
