These 15 Photos Track J Balvin’s Hair Evolution From Afro Balvin to Lisa Frank Print And Beyond
Artists are all about expression and experimentation and that is doubly true if you’re J Balvin. This reggaetonero has taken the world by storm and a huge part of his success is definitely because he’s one artist who’s not afraid to be himself and make a statement, whether it’s through his music or fashion.
The Colombian singer, known for his smash hits such as “Mi Gente,” “Ginza” and “Reggaeton,” has used his platform to flaunt his unique style whether it’s through his music, his fashion and especially his hair.
A natural brunette, Balvin has experimented with all sorts of colors and prints – with some looks more successful than others.
In celebration of his inclusive, positive and unapologetic personality, here’s a look at J Balvin’s hair evolution.
Long before there was J Balvin, there was Afro Balvin.
Even after he broke out on the music scene, J Balvin stuck to his ‘roots’ for quite awhile…
The man knows how to work his natural brunette look. And he looks good doing it.
At one point, he took the brunette look to his short and faded look we all know today.
This is the look that he’s built upon with a whole collection of designs. And why not? It’s such a good base cut.
And we can’t forget this unique rainbow-inspired do…
That he played around with around the release of ‘Machika.’ And perhaps it’s what has inspired his ‘Arcoiris’ tour…
Or this neon-green soccer ball one.
I mean that’s pretty amazing.
And from this shaved look, J Balvin has spawned a lookbook of colors, prints, and patterns.
Like this highlighter yellow. Which I’m not sure how I felt about.
There’s been a burnt orange.
Which really started out as a bright orange after the highlighter color from above.
And he loves a hot pink.
Hot pink pops. Especially a highlighter shade like this first one he went with.
He’s even played around with patterns…
Like when he had this tie-dye look in Paris.
But then went back to a different hot pink.
This hot pink, slightly more faded than the first, is a lot less harsh and IMO looks a hell of a lot better.
Before giving us major Lisa Frank vibes during Coachella.
J Balvin owned Coachella and perhaps it was in some part thanks to this amazing hairstyle.
Then he went blonde…
Which I’m totally feeling on him.
But always a sucker for experimentation…
He switched back to some badass tiger stripes, saying in an Instragram post “Yo soy tigre.” Cute.
At first he had it more like a white Siberian tiger…
But a couple of weeks later it was dyed to a more traditional orange-striped tiger.
And now it looks like he’s letting it all grow out.
What will J Balvin do to his hair next?
