Alicia Keys' Most Head-Turning Hairstyles Of All Time

This girl is on fiiiiiire! 🔥

Alicia Keys' powerhouse voice has earned her a slew of Grammys, plenty of American Music Awards and countless other accolades -- but it's her penchant for curve-hugging clothes and head-turning hairstyles that make her one of the brightest style stars around.

In fact, the "New Day" singer has rocked so many different 'dos that every time she hits the stage or red carpet we can't wait to see how she has transformed her tresses.

From her signature braids, awesome Afro, voluminous curls, and the time she shocked the world with a pixie cut, the "Empire" actress is a bonafide hair chameleon. And lately Ms. Keys' edgy under-cut has stolen our hearts. Long story short, her hair evolution is epic.

So, in celebration of Keys' 35th birthday on Jan. 25, we've gathered some of her most iconic hairstyles of all time. Take a look and make sure you tell us which one is your favorite in the comments section below.
