Alicia Keys Long Cornrows

Since releasing her first album in 2001, Alicia Keys has gone on to become an award winning singer/songwriter, record producer and an actress. WOW!, Is this girl on fire or what?.

Alicia Keys hairstyles are just as versatile and diverse ranging from long, short, purple, buzzed and even braided. She's rocked so many different ‘dos that every time she's on stage or attending a red carpet event we can’t wait to see how she has transformed her tresses.

In November 2015, she made her acting debut on the hit TV show Empire with a totally new deep, violet-purple hair in a super sleek, straight style.
