Doja Cat caught the world’s attention in 2018 with her viral song “Mooo!” — and she hasn’t rested since.

While the singer and rapper is famous for her catchy music, her fans know that she’s always going to turn a look (she recently attended Paris Couture Week covered head to toe in red jewels, for crying out loud). This is especially true for Doja Cat’s hairstyles, which have run the gamut: As the singer started to make appearances at radio shows and red carpets throughout 2019, she rocked pink hair, spiky updos, a glittery bob, and platinum blonde strands — and she’s rocked a great variety of ‘dos ever since. There’s truly no guessing what Doja will wear — or do — next, and that’s what makes her so fun to watch.

While her music videos are also hyper-stylized, Doja is also down to experiment IRL, where she’s known to throw caution to the wind (think: eyebrow art, a shaved head painted gold, two-tone pigtails). Whether she’s on a red carpet, onstage, or scooping up yet another award, you know she’ll be making a style statement. Here, a look at Doja Cat’s most stand-out hairstyles, from 2014 to today.

At the 17th Annual Pre-Grammy Party in 2014, long before Doja Cat was collaborating with Nicki Minaj and creating viral TikTok tunes, the musician wore one of her more traditional looks: a highlighted brown lob, which she covered with a lavender beanie.

Years later, Doja was snapped at the BET Awards in June 2019 sporting a set of pink cat ears atop her blonde bob. The “meow meow” sunglasses were the purr-fect touch.
