20 Reasons You Should Be Following SZA On Instagram Right Now

In the past year, we've seen SZA everywhere we turn. Every Instagram story, every Snapchat replay, every charting duet. The SZA movement is one that's not going to stop, and for that, we are grateful. Before the New Jersey native — born Solána Imani Rowe — hit the mainstream scene, the singer was quietly dropping dope EPs for years. But with her breakthrough debut CTRL, Gap and Fenty Beauty campaigns, and much more to come, all eyes will remain on her. And she's giving us plenty to look at.

Click ahead to see why SZA is the beauty icon we all need this year (and the ones after that) and try not to save every photo to your Instagram for future inspiration.

It's rare to see Solána with straight hair, but when it happens, it's magic.

Some try to hide their frizz, but SZA embraces it — and styles it in two adorably-messy ponytails.

And sometimes, she'll braid them and tie them with ribbon for down-on-the-farm realness.

"Shit not sweet," she captioned... but her pineapple totally is.

For the "All The Stars" video, she looked absolutely regal with these tribal-inspired Bantu knots.

Good thing that she told us "issa wig," because we would've been fooled otherwise. Short hair is very becoming on the singer.

Of course 'Lana got in on the braided bang trend early.

Even though SZA told us that she has 4c hair, don't get too excited... issa 'nother wig. (A good one, but still.)

Bodega and half-ponytail goals. This one is actually a wig from Slayer Hair Co.

One of the many, many reasons why we love SZA is because she's just so real. Like, posting on the 'gram in her bonnet, real.
Remember when everyone and their mother was rocking rosé hair? SZA tried the trend first.
You'll rarely catch the singer with her hair up, but when she does, she does it right.
This low-key look is one of our absolute favorites. Her wine red hair has us tempted to try the color ourselves.
SZA loves to rock glam makeup onstage, but we often see the artist showing off a more natural look on Instagram. With mile-long lashes, of course.
SZA's love for switching up her hair color makes her beauty evolution especially impressive. Just last summer she was rocking this ashy blonde hue. She credits Jane Carter Solutions products for keeping her strands healthy between dye jobs.
If you didn't think a little bit of gloss could go far, then you haven't seen SZA. From her lips to her eyelids, the singer is glowing.
Her signature freckles are the kind of beauty trait that people get tattoos to copy.
Looking for some #hairgoals? SZA is a walking Pinterest board of inspiration, including this full braid.
When the Ctrl singer posted this photo showing off her new braids, fans were quick to note her resemblance to another iconic singer: Brandy.
If we had to rank her best hair colors, we'd definitely choose the jet-black hue as the GOAT.
