No one does it better than the queen of quick hair changes. The “Wild Thoughts” singer and Fenty Beauty creator switches it up by choosing a straight-haired lob and cool-girl topper for summer 2017. (Photo via Marc Piasecki/WireImage/Getty)

By the fall of the same year, she’d transformed her stick-straight ‘do into a sky-high, curly pony. Way to slay, RiRi. (Photo via Karwai Tang/WireImage/Getty)

She has since become a vocal proponent of the natural beauty movement, swearing off over-the-top makeup and rocking her natural tendrils. Let’s just say we’d be smiling too if we had hair that haute. (Photo via Theo Wargo/Getty)

Jessica simpson

Circa 2006, Simpson’s old-school aesthetic was all the rage. The “With You” singer’s look was all about big blonde curls and a tan. (Photo via SGranitz/WireImage/Getty)

Ten years later and the beauty’s got a whole new look. These days, Simpson is more likely to be spotted with a neat lob sans curl, like the one pictured above from 2016. (Photos via Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic/Getty)
