It’s hard to believe that anoth­er year has gone by! This year we’ve fea­tured over 200 style icons — wom­en who have shared their reg­i­mens, tips and advice and, of course, drool­wor­thy pho­tos of their hair. At the end of the year we like to look back at the wom­en who gave us inspi­ra­tion (and hair porn!)

The style icons below received the most views in the mon­th they were fea­tured. Click on the name or pho­to to check out their fea­ture, then vote in the poll at the bot­tom of the post. The win­ner will receive a $100 Macy’s gift card, and the noto­ri­ety of being a BGLH Style Icon of the Year :)
