Kelly Roland's 2011 was nothing short of spectacular!  

The talented singer released a new album, performed around the world, and scored a judge's seat on the hit show 'X Factor' -- all while rocking the hottest hairstyles around.  Not only did the "Motivation" singer turn heads with her lovely looks, but her sizzling strands even landed her a cover spot on our latest ESSENCE Hot Hair issue.

Check out our round-up of Kelly's best hairstyles of the year.
