If there’s one artist who’s not afraid to take a risk or make a statement, whether it be with his music or sense of style, it’s Maluma, baby!

The Columbian reggaetón singer first hit the music scene in 2010 and quickly won fans over with his smooth delivery and infectious beats. But, it wasn’t until the release of his 2015 album Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy, that the Latin music sensation finally received breakthrough success thanks to hits like “Borró Cassette, “El Perdedor”, and “Sin Contrato.”

Now, the superstar has taken to lending his star power to music collaborations with superstars like Shakira, Madonna, and most recently, Jennifer Lopez — who he’s set to star alongside in the upcoming rom-com, Marry Me, his feature film debut.

As the star’s career continues to rise and evolve, we can’t help but notice how his grooming style seems to change with it. Over the last few years, we’ve seen the pop star rock an array of unforgettable hairstyles. From buzz cuts to man buns, let’s take a look back at Maluma’s best hairstyles so far.

The pop star fully embraced his “Dirty Boy” persona with a messy, blonde bob.

High Shine

The star set the Premio Lo Nuestro red carpet ablaze when he showed up rocking a super slicked-back man bun.


The buzzcut is a style that Maluma returns to often and for good reason — it always looks good. We love that he paired the clean-shaven look with some trimmed down facial hair to match.

Think Pink

Real men wear pink or in Maluma’s case, dye their hair pink. We’re living for this fun look!
