When you’re a celebrity it’s important to stay relevant even when your career is over. And for most of them, staying relevant means constantly upgrading their look.
But while many celebs like Nicki Minaj constantly change their appearance, other stars opt to maintain signature looks. Take a look at our favorite celebrities with styles that have longevity.
Shanell (SnL) – Nose piercing
The female powerhouse that embodies YMCMB has rocked nose piercings since she’s stepped on the scene. We love the look but we wonder about the safety precautions she takes to be safe while rocking her look.
Cassie – Shaved Head
We’re sick of his trend—on people outside of Cassie of course. For some reason Diddy’s main squeeze turned this overused hairstyle into her signature look that we adore!
Rihanna – Body Tattoos
Rihanna is probably the only female celeb with tattoos that get sexier over time. With 19 tattoos and counting, this bad gal’s inked physique has become synonymous with her name.

Lauren London – Dimples
Lauren couldn’t get rid of her dimples if she tried. Unlike the rest of this list, our Vixen cover girl was born with these to die for cheek indents!

Amber Rose- Shaved Head
Honestly when this fad began, we prayed it would stop. Seriously, the only baldy beau we love rocking a caesar is Mrs. Taylor Gang herself.
Gucci Mane – Ice Cream Tattoo
It’s probably the dumbest tattoo ever but whenever we see that tat, we know it’s Gucci.

Ms. Myki – Mohawk
Although this former 106th and Park host’s stint on the show was short-lived, her mohawk is unforgettable.

Kelis – Colored Fro
Kelis has rocked many do’s but her afro and it’s many color stages is not only memorable but gorgeous!
Nelly – Band Aid
What’s with the band-aid? We were baffled when Nelly stepped on the scene rocking a left bandage on his cheek—only to discover it was in honor of his incarcerated friend. He has since grown out that look but not before it became synonymous with his name.

Left Eye – Condom Eye Patch
The deceased rapper, Left Eye rocked her eye patch as if she was missing her actual eye. Stirring major controversy with her choice in condom brand patches, the member of TLC eventually left her safe sex apparatus at home. But by then she already made history with her one-of-a-kind face covering.

This songstresses style was truly “one in a million”. Aaliyah’s baggy style and signature swoop is still emulated by celebs.
