To give you ultimate hair inspo, we’ve started a ‘Celebrity Hair History’ series here on the Milk + Blush blog. In Celebrity Hair History, we’re taking a look back at some iconic hairstyles through the years and tracing the hair evolution of some of our fave stars and celebs to where they are today.

We’re sharing one of our longest posts ever today and looking back at the many iconic looks of pop icon Britney Spears. Her hair has changed more than anyone else and she’s been pretty experimental which makes her the perfect candidate for a Hair History post. So if you didn’t manage to catch her in Vegas or are just missing 90s pop then keep scrolling for her epic Hair History.
