Fantasia is back and better than ever! The soulful songstress has been out and about promoting her new album The Side Effects of You. In honor of her long-awaited comeback, take a look at Fantasia's best-tressed moments over the years.
2004: In the Beginning
The year was 2004 when the nation cast their vote for a raspy-voiced soul singer from North Carolina to win the third season of American Idol. Her name was Fantasia Barrino and not only did she have a larger-than-life voice, but she loved to rock a fierce hairstyle, too.
2005: Go For the Gold
Early in her career, it was obvious that Fantasia did not hold back when it came to expressing herself through a wide variety of hairstyles. Here, she accepts an NAACP award wearing a spiky crop with golden streaks.
