Vote for the 2012 BGLH Style Icon of the Year!

• Dec 17, 2012

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 🙂

And click here to check out last year’s style icon of the year contest.

Ashley (Featured in January)

Nikki (Featured in February)

Shea Rose (Featured in March)

Portia (Featured in April)

Tamika (Featured in June)

Melanie (Featured in July)

I loved Ash’s beautiful reddish brown hair and freckles. She’s sooooo cute.

Shea Rose is the winner in my opinion, because not only is her gorgeous hair stylish, she is rocking some fierce style from head to toe, which is what I think a style icon of the year should be.

I vote for Tammy! It’s called a style icon and to me, she had the most/best variety of styles. Also, each style just looked gorgeous on her! And although you can’t see much of her clothes, her clothing ‘style’ also seems to be what I would like (brightly-coloured, often patterned). Nice attitude and pretty girl too!

How did they choose a short list? There are people who haven’t been included. I think Tammy should win out of the women I see here.

As an aside, I don’t find the new site as user friendly in terms of seeing the latest articles and posts first. Am I missing something? Is there a way to see this without seeing it all jumbled onto one front page?

I thought I was the only one! How can I know which article is the latest??

I voted for Tammy. I literally drooled over every style in her article. They were all so unique and cute and she really showed off her versatility. Plus she is a-dor-able!

this is gonna be hard, because if they all have beautiful hair, the only things the choice will come down to are 1)curl type and 2) length(perhaps). Things that I don’t personally think should matter. Anyway, I’ll try. To me, they should all win Style Icons of the Year, lol.

I chose Cassandre. That shine and thickness were seducing me too much!

Latoya Ponder

I vote for Tammy. She is gorgeous(they all are) and I can only dream that I could achieve some of her up-dos.

I’m so thrilled to be the Style Icon of 2012! Very cool! It was a great contest to be apart of. All the ladies are gorgeous and wore their hair beautifully!!! I loved looking at all the different representations of natural hair and the styles that they accomplished with their hair! I want to thank BGLH for the opportunity to be on the site; they have given myself and the other ladies a chance to share our hair stories which have inspired others just as the previous icons have inspired us! Thank you to everyone who voted and showed support!… Read more »

Courtney,

Thank you for posting your nightly routines. I have been natural for maybe 4 years and I am not getting any growth because my hair is so dry and it breaks when I comb it. To complicate matters, I live in Japan and getting products is hard. Please send me the list of products that you use. I also have an adopted daughter and I want to start using your routine on her hair. Thank you very much.
