Even as a fresh-faced teen, it was clear Jennifer Lawrence was a star on the rise. Though a Kentucky native, the actor was all about golden California glam with beachy blonde waves and sun-kissed blush.E. Charbonneau/WireImage/Getty Images
By 2009, J.Law was becoming a bourgeoning beauty icon. Trading in her typical low-key glam for a dark oxblood lipstick and a deeper shade of bronde hair, she looks every bit the leading lady.Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic/Getty Images
It was the very first Oscar nomination for a 21-year-old Jennifer Lawrence, and she turned up dressed to impress in a sexy red Calvin Klein Collection gown and the best long layered haircut — a precursor to 2022’s octopus cut trend.Jay L. Clendenin/Los Angeles Times/Getty Images
Officially a household name thanks to the runaway success of the Hunger Games franchise, 2012 saw a major beauty shakeup for breakout star Jennifer Lawrence. Her long, piecey bangs add even more definition to her sculpted face, while the muted golden blonde looks so natural.Anthony Harvey/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Timeless, sophisticated, and just understated enough — exactly the look you’d want for your own first Oscar win at just 22, no? Her loosely secured chignon and soft smoky eye made a memorable impression, and even looked glam during her now-legendary trip.Jason Merritt/TERM/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Wrapping up the Hunger Games franchise meant freedom to experiment with her personal style. Jennifer Lawrence’s pixie cut is ethereal, edgy, and so fresh, but it actually goes down as one of her beauty regrets — she told Vogue pictures of the haircut should be “scrubbed” from the Internet forever.

One of the biggest Jennifer Lawrence hair transformations happens to be the most subtle. By 2016, her hair was all grown out into a sleek lob, but it’s the icy platinum shade — a major departure from her signature golden blonde — that really had fans talking.Karwai Tang/WireImage/Getty Images
By 2018, the Oscars were old hat for Jennifer Lawrence — but she still brought her beauty A-game to the ceremony. She pumped up her cool-toned hair with voluminous curls and subtle money piece highlights, while her smoky winged eye makeup and rust-colored lip added tons of drama.Frazer Harrison/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Talk about radiant. A pregnant Jennifer Lawrence was absolutely glowing at a late-night stop in 2021. Her skin was dewy, her side-parted curls were glossy, and the soft wash of raspberry lipstick ties the entire look together.James Devaney/GC Images/Getty Images
These days, the actor-mogul-mother is staying true to her roots with long, natural waves and natural makeup. She shakes it up with a deep lipstick, updo, or bronzey tones, but her standard glam is delightfully low-key.Amy Sussman/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
