Mariah Carey is known for her holiday hits, five-octave vocal range, and glammed-out beauty looks. She's normally seen with over-the-top outfits, dramatic eyelashes, and long, voluminous waves. Recently, however, Carey has been changing things up a little by bringing back the curly hair that was her signature style when she first became a huge star 30 years ago.
The singer has been wearing her hair curlier for a few months now, but in her latest Instagram post, she wore those curls a little tighter, resembling the ringlets she used to wear in the early '90s. Remember her debut album, Mariah Carey? It's truly reminiscent of her hair on the cover.
Carey smiled for the camera in a close-up carousel of selfies. In the first picture, she poses solo with her curls covering half of her face, and in the second she cheeses ear-to-ear with her daughter, Monroe.
She looks as stunning now as she did back then, and the fans agree. "Natural curls be on point. So beautiful without even trying 😘😍❤️🦋👑," one wrote, while another gave the singer the title "curly legend," and one screamed, "DAHLING THIS HAIR SNATCHED." Even fellow vocalist JoJo chimed in with, "The most gorgeous curls!!!!" And the throwback look wasn't lost on the commenters: "OMG it's 1991," someone wrote.
We don't know if it was just being at home during the pandemic that encouraged Carey to let her natural curls flourish, but we hope it sticks around for a while.
