Lea Michele's Changing Looks
See the Glee star's transformation through the years.
By the time she attended Tenafly High School in New Jersey, Michele was already a Broadway success.
The 20-year-old Spring Awakening lead made the most of her full lips with a bold persimmon hue.
Michele, who had just scored a star-making role in Glee, gave her boho-chic ringlets a center part.
A sleek ponytail and whisper-soft makeup put the focus on Michele's flawless brows and major lashes.
The actress made headlines with her thick bangs. "She knew exactly the fringe she wanted: Longer on the sides, but eyelash grazing and right between the brow and the eyelash in the middle," said her hairstylist Mark Townsend.
She sported an edgy take on a '60s beehive with long piecey fringe.
Michele added fun caramel streaks to her brunet mane.
"This is Lea Michele with a bit of an edge," hairstylist Mark Townsend tells us of the look he created. "I hid her bangs with a middlepart, and put a new, sexy texture in her hair."
"With Lea, I like to choose one of her features and emphasize it," makeup artist Melanie Inglessis told us of the star's Golden Globes look. In this case, she turned up the volume on Michele's eyes, but kept her lips quiet. "Matte lipsticks are very modern."
At the Teen Choice Awards, Michele went for a roughed-up beachy blowout. We love the carefree vibe her strands give off, while staying red carpet appropriate with its matte texture. "I wanted Lea to look like a classic, sun-kissed California girl," her hairstylist Mark Townsend said. "I loved her Atelier Versace dress and wanted to show how a cool, young woman wears couture, so I kept her hair pretty natural with loads of texture."
The singing sensation went slick and straight for a June event at the Beverly Hills Hilton.
Michele lightened up her base color in 2014, styling her long locks into beachy waves for the Sons Of Anarchy premiere.
The star was back to a dark brown hue for a 2015 event in L.A., keeping her makeup muted to draw attention to her flawless complexion.
She's a blonde! Michele played with color, styling her sleek straight hair in a side part for a Women in Comedy event.
