Mariah Carey is one of the most talented singers of all time. Her voice is magical and she has given us lots of hit songs over the years. She is beautiful and likes to style in different ways. She gives a lot of effort to make her look good just like any other celebrity. Her hair is something many fashion lovers talk about. She has beautiful curls on her long hair. The hair is voluminous and attractive.

In the early days of her career, she was mostly seen in these curls. But as the years went by she changed her hairstyle to wavy locks. She chose a lighter color than before and added some bangs. She kept on experimenting with both curly and golden wavy hair for some time. In 2005 we explored her in a straight long hairstyle. She looked very refreshing at the BET Honors Gala in 2012 with her half updo. In 2016 we rediscovered her in the straight long hairstyle parting in the middle. But again she loves her curls. So, she went back to her signature style. Mariah Carey hasn’t done any bold color on her hair. She has always loved the golden, auburn and brown hues. We love her subtle waves. Sometimes adding bangs accentuates her features.

Mariah Carey had a passion for singing from a very young age. In fact, she started taking singing lessons at the age of four only. Her debut album ‘Mariah Carey’ was released by the Columbia Records in 1990. Four singles from this album topped the Billboard 100 chart. Her next albums ‘Music Box’, ‘Merry Christmas’, and ‘DayDream’ were very successful as well. The song ‘One Sweet Day’ turned out to be the longest-running number-one single in the music history of US. She went on to release hip-hop music in 1997. There are lots of awards to her credit. She won five Grammy Awards and numerous World Music Awards, American Music Awards, and Billboard Music Awards. She has her name on the Guinness World Records for having a five-octave vocal range. She is known as one of the best selling music artists of all time. She has millions of fan followings throughout the world. Her concerts are most of the time full and people love seeing her perform alive. Her styles become the talk of the town after each concert. She is a very fashion-conscious artist and often sets her own trend. Like her singing ability, her fashion sense also inspires many people. We have got some great music from her.
