Nick Jonas, Joe Jonas, and Kevin Jonas, collectively known as the Jonas Brothers, have grown up in the spotlight.

Their career as a band began with the release of their first album, “It’s About Time,” which came out in 2006. As the Jonas Brothers grew into a globally popular boy band with several studio albums, their own Disney Channel series, and sold-out shows, their looks drastically changed. From their vests to Joe’s straightened hair (which he now says he regrets), it’s been quite the evolution.

Here’s a look at how their style has transformed.


Here’s the band at their first Kids’ Choice Awards appearance in April 2006.

Nick Jonas wore an Ed Hardy shirt and Joe’s hoodie sleeves included thumb cutouts.


At a 2006 appearance on MTV’s popular show “Total Request Live,” the band chose laid-back clothes and goofed around behind-the-scenes.

Wearing T-shirts over long sleeved tops was a popular trend at the time.


The brothers matched with black, grey, and white hues at the 2007 Teen Choice Awards.

Joe’s short hair grew out and he started rocking a side part. He also wore his tie under his collar while Kevin accessorized with a scarf-like garment. At nearly 15 years old, Nick channeled his inner businessman for his outfit.

“I have a few hair and facial hair regrets,” Joe told GQ in 2015. “I had long hair to my shoulders at one point and I would flat-iron my hair so that it would point out. It was like I was an animated character. Someone taught me how to do it and I sort of got addicted to it. As I got older I realised that was kind of an abnormal thing to do.”


In January 2008, Nick’s curly locks covered his entire forehead.

Kevin’s hairstyle remained relatively the same, but Joe was still addicted to straightening his hair.


The Jonas Brothers’ 2008 KCA outfits featured bits of green that perfectly fit with the show’s signature slime.

“I think we hit that age where we didn’t want to be kids anymore, and we were trying to be adults,” Joe recalled during an interview with People in 2017. “We wore really oversized suits to the Kids’ Choice Awards, which is just kinda fun and wild and crazy.”

He added: “I’m not saying it was a bad look! It just probably a little bit premature and wasn’t right, exactly. I had an ascot underneath. It was really great. I think we were one step away from top hats! Which we ended up doing, as well, for a while.”

For a few summers, Disney Channel rounded up the network’s stars to compete in a series of obstacles. It was known as the “Disney Channel Games.”


In June 2008, Nick, Joe, and Kevin refined their styles for the premiere of “Camp Rock.”

Nick also started keeping his curls at a shorter length.


At the Teen Choice Awards in 2008, Nick wore a white outfit and a dark blue V-neck shirt underneath.

Fans were distraught when Joe shaved off most of his hair in June 2013. It grew back a bit by the time the Teen Choice Awards took place two months later.

Joe showed off the dramatic transformation on Instagram and Vine.

A few months later, in October, the band announced that they were breaking up and not releasing a fifth album that was already in the works. The stars cited frequent arguments as the reason for their split and Nick was the one to initiate the separation.

“In a nutshell, I said, ‘Look, I feel like we’ve had some complications within the group for a long time without addressing them. I think this train will fall off the tracks without really getting real about some of the concerns and some of the limitations that we may feel as individuals in the group,'”Nick said on “Good Morning America.” “It was a tough conversation … It was the first time we really had that real conversation.”


Despite the group’s split, they were photographed together a few times. Here they are at New York Fashion Week in September 2013.

Nick started styling his hair a bit differently, with the front section neatly combed upwards.

Fans became aware of Nick’s ripped physique after he posted a shirtless photo on Instagram in 2013. He continued working out after landing a role as an MMA fighter named Nate on the series “Kingdom,” which lasted from 2014 to 2017.


While the Jonas Brothers were on hiatus, Joe formed a band called DNCE. He also dyed part of his hair teal.

Nick Jonas stepped out with a buzz cut at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party in February 2016.

“I shaved it because I was shooting ‘Kingdom,’ and I wanted to look different,” he told MTV News. “And I wanted to have a bit of a harder look, and I felt like – and other people felt like – when I have a shaved head that I do look that way, but more menacing.”


At one point, Joe completely shaved off the hair on the left and right sides of his head.

“We were both wearing Ralph Lauren! And we decided to go together because it was fun,” Chopra told Jimmy Kimmel after fans began speculating that the two stars were dating.

At that point, they weren’t dating. But the following year, their whirlwind relationship was in full swing.


You might have forgotten about the time in 2017 when Joe wore a mustache.

The look was polarising among fans.
