Performing with The Supremes in the 1970’s, Ms. Ross stayed true to her adventurous spirit with a mod high mushroom haircut.

No stranger to big hair, Ross pumped up the volume again with a center-parted bob in the ’70’s.

Full of body, this volume-heavy updo is classic and very 1960’s. We’re a fan of anything that allows the focus to be on the singer’s gorgeous eyes.

Harkening back to Ross’ acting days, this still from “Lady Sings the Blues,” featuring an updo with a floral accent is angelic.

It gets no flyer than a flipped asymmetrical bob before it was known as the asymmetrical bob.

Highlighting the singer’s face, this slicked back style is a nice change of pace. With barely-there hair, Ms. Ross still stuns.

An afro with a natural look is so empowering! We love how Diana keeps it kinky with this style.

Tight ringlets shaped into an afro somehow works. Let’s be honest, Ross can wear anything.

Now this is a natural blow out! See how Diana transformed her tight ‘fro into long tresses? We like.

In this ad for MAC Cosmetics, Diana Ross smolders with bone straight tresses laced with honey brown highlights. When taking risks with hair color, keep Ms. Ross in mind as an example of how to do it right.

Ms. Ross was one of the firsts to rock “The Lob” a.k.a the long bob. We could look at those bouncy, tucked under ends all day.

Embracing a more natural look with a head full of long curls, Ms. Ross just gets better with age.
