Our January cover girl's razored short style looks badass and edgy. We love this turn to downtown chic but appreciate her classic waves too. Which do are you feeling?

Where have you been all my life, short-haired Alicia? The artist's short cut looks cool yet sophisticated and truly suits her face. Rock on, girl.

Big Chop Alert! The soulful chanteuse went from shoulder-length locks to an amazing curly 'do this year. Are you considering cutting it all off next year?

One week her curls a fro-y and full, the next they're short and sassy. We love that Ms. Bassett switches up her look at will. Why not? Hair should be fun!
