Now and Then: Taylor Swift's Epic Beauty Evolution

Beauty evolutions are always fun, but Taylor Swift's is a particular treat thanks to those iconic curls. For years they were her signature—a somewhat symbolic connection to her country roots, often paired with breezy sun dresses, cowboy boots, and a whole lotta glitter eye shadow. But over the years, as Swift's music and career have evolved, so has her look: She's gradually shed her Nashville-centric style, becoming the icon-in-the-making that she is today. Click through the gallery below to see how Swift has changed over the years, plus enjoy some serious beauty inspiration from her more recent years (or earlier years, if you're into that kind of thing).
