The Popdust Files: Facemelt, gwen stefani, hair, madonna, photos, rita ora, style

Rita Ora is a chameleon. The Kosovo-born singer, who counts strong, gutsy blondies like Gwen Stefani and Debbie Harry among her inspirations, merely has to change up her bleached hair and voila, she looks like an entirely different person. Sometimes she channels Gwen with tiny twisted buns, other times Madonna circa “Holiday“—especially in the new video for her single, “Facemelt.” “My style and my music have a lot to do with each other,” she’s said. “They’re both very free…and they’re very eclectic.”

Oftentimes, Rita’s willingness to experiment and push boundaries lands her on “worst of” lists, such as a few days ago when she wore a hair-sprayed and teased bouffant on the red carpet. But aside from a few missteps, Rita has emerged as a true hair icon. She manages to pull off a host of styles, from minimal and slicked back to bouncy curls to tight, French-braided pigtails.

It’s hard to pick favorites, but we’ve managed to narrow the list of her best hairstyles to these 15. Just add red lipstick and you’re ready to go party and bullshit.
