When you think about true modern style innovators, only a few names spring to mind—and one of them is always Kelis. Since she first burst on the scene ten years ago with “Caught Out There,” the delightfully kooky, unabashedly avant garde singer has kept us guessing with her envelope-pushing hairstyles. In honor of her brand-new album, “Flesh Tone,” let’s take a look back at Kelis’ most memorable hair moments, from emerald-green curls to a pink pixie cut.
At the 2001 MTV Europe Music Awards, the singer showed up with a ladylike chignon accessorized with live gardenias.
At the “Just Like Heaven” premiere in Hollywood, Kelis flaunted a bodacious, fluffy blowout and candy-coated lips.
Kelis debuted her super-short, side-shaved hairstyle at the 2006 BET Awards. Did this look inspire Rihanna’s career-making “rooster” cut?
Kelis shocked everyone at the 2007 NBA All-Star Weekend when she hit the red carpet rocking a brand new, powder puff pink hairdo!
At the 50th Annual Grammy Awards, Kelis was the queen of cool in her retro mushroom wedge cut and tinted shades.
A very pregnant Kelis was feeling blue at Samsung’s 8th Annual Four Seasons Of Hope Gala.
At the First Annual Data Awards, Kelis pushed the envelope with a Statue of Liberty-esque headpiece paired with a long, silver braid.
Recently, Kelis chopped off her locks and dyed them a showstopping, fire engine red. Here, she flaunts the style at her ‘Flesh Tone’ album release party.
