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 🙂
