Not very long after that Charli was invited to perform at warehouse raves and parties by her promoter and eventually signed with Asylum Records in 2010. Her very first studio album “True Romance” (2013), however, was not as successful as expected despite receiving great critical acclaim. Though failed to meet commercial expectations, there was still something about Charli XCX that demanded attention. After her collaboration with rapper Iggy Azalea in “Fancy”, which ended the year 2014 with two Grammy nominations and is one of the best-selling singles worldwide, the star rose into stardom as a talented singer, songwriter.
Later that year, Charli XCX’s single “Boom Clap” became her very first solo hit, peaking at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified platinum in Australia.

On 5 October 2018, Charli XCX released her collab single “1999” with Troye Sivan and came back again with single “2099” on June 3, 2019. The singer also drew public attention with her collab track titled “Dream Glow” with three members Jin, Jimin, and Jung kook from Korean boy group BTS. And on her way rising in the public eye, Charli XCX has left us an impression of how gifted a musician she was.

The girl has not only nailed it having a signature hairstyle but also experimented with thousands of different looks. Let’s take a look back at some best moments of Charlie XCX hairstyle since her debut, and hopefully, it might be of some help to your hair journey as well.
#1 Shaggy Fringe
One of our favorite Charli XCX hair moments is one where she attended the 2017 MTV Europe Music Awards. Instead of revel in the shock factor as transform her hair to trendy rainbow or pastel hair shades, Charli made her appearance with a super dramatic razored cut with a shaggy fringe. It was such a brilliant choice of her as shaggy fringes and medium length bob worked beautifully with her face shape and complimented her dazzling brown eyes well.
#2 Straight Lob
It’s no secret that Charli XCX has made a lasting impression on her signature waves, and her brand new straight lob has left her fans in complete shock. Her hair was basically a layered cut, subtly tapered out around her face to make it lighter and less dramatic, as well as to compliment her gorgeous cheekbones and forehead. The hair was not only flattering, but it is also a smart choice as it can be touch up easily so that it won’t take too much time between her stages.
#3 Wet Hairstyle
Knowing for her daring choices of style, Charli XCX surely has lived up to fans’ expectations, seeing her mixing things up for her appearance at a contemporary art party way back in 2015. Ditching her sleek and polish usual hairdo, Charli got herself a messy and product-heavy hairstyle this time, and the star wore it well, tho. Alongside with this edgy hairstyle was an edgy makeup look, with smoky eyes in some green-tinged shades of grey, giving off some serious gothic vibe.
#4 High Ponytail
Anyone would look good on a ponytail, trust me. And that was all the same to Charli XCX. Showing up on the 2017 amfAR Fabulous Fund Fair at Skylight Clarkson Square, the singer looked breath-taking rocking her towering ponytail with a naturally wavy texture. Another plus point for this hairstyle was the small detail where the base is perfectly wrapped in hair and there were no baby hairs or fly-aways, making her look completely neat yet sweet, thanks to her natural waves.
#5 Faux Sidecut
It must be one of the most iconic hairstyles of Charli XCX as her do in the music video “Boom Clap” – the soundtrack of the movie “The Fault from Our Star” has made a lasting impression. In her music video, the singer has her hair side-parted and varied bouffant, creating a faux sidecut style. The wavy texture and dark brown color also gave more m0vements and more dimensional to the hair. Doesn’t this look amazing on her?
#6 Loose Waves
For her appearance in Ty Dolla $ign’s music video “Drop That Kitty”, the beautiful Charli XCX paid tribute to her signature look – the loose wavy hairstyle. I mean…at least this is what I picture her my head. The star was rocking a dark brown loose wavy hairstyle with bobby pins details on the left side. This is a super adorable haircut for those who prefer feminine hairdo yet don’t want to make it lame with just normal waves.
#7 Side Part
Side parts do absolutely great jobs on Charli XCX. The star attended the 2014 Billboard Women in Music Luncheon at Cipriani Wall Street with again, glamorous dark brown waves, but added with some extra glams, layered look with loose curls swept gently covering one side of her face.
