rita ora at cannes film festival with sleek blow dried blonde hair

Rita Ora just shared a rare glimpse of her natural curls – did you see?

Her cute-as-a-button curls are causing an Instagram frenzy!   

A quick look through Rita Ora’s hair history and you’ll see that over the years she’s tried pretty much every hair trend going. From a peroxide pixie cut to candyfloss pink strands, the I Will Never Let You Down singer certainly isn’t afraid to experiment.

However, one look that we don’t often see from the star is her natural curly texture. So, you can imagine our surprise when we logged onto Instagram yesterday and came across a video of her flaunting her coiled locks!

As much as we love her playful approach to hair, she looks adorable with her natural soft curls – in fact, it might just be our favourite look from her yet!

We heart Rita Ora’s natural curls ❤️


The 26-year-old posted the fun, black-and-white video of her dancing along to her new collab with Ed Sheeran, captioning the post: “Jammin out to YOUR SONG with my Oh nat u ral curls out today!”.

The British singer was most recently spotted at the Cannes Film Festival with a sleek blonde blowout (which we loved, FYI!). But as you can see, her natural undone curls have been cut into a totally on-trend shag cut, complete with soft, face-framing bangs.

Plus, by the looks of things, she’s also added a few blonde highlights through her brunette tresses, which gives her look a fresh and summery feel.

As you may know, Rita is the latest in a line of black women, including Michelle Obama and Leona Lewis, who have come out in favour of natural hair. It really is amazing to see such high profile ladies living the naturalista life, but knowing Rita, it probably won’t be too long before she steps out with yet another envy-inducing style!

Editor’s tip: If you’re looking to embrace your curls, yet find that they get a little out of control, we recommend giving the TIGI Catwalk Curls Rock Amplifier a try. A lifesaver for curly-haired girls, it’ll help define and separate your ringlets, while also provide protection from frizz and humidity.
