The beautiful You Da One singer cut her post-tour Barbadian vacation short to ring in 2012 in Miami with P. Diddy and pals, rocking a rather questionable ensemble—and an even more questionable hairstyle.

We get that a deep keyhole neckline deserves top billing, but piling dip-dyed corkscrew curls atop of her head wouldn’t have been our go-to style in the slightest.

Why? Three simple reasons.

1) It aged her, especially when paired with a lacy long-sleeved frock that hit below the wrists and the knees—could her overall look been any more matronly?

2) Curly bangs rarely work, particularly those that are sparse and spread far apart on either side of the forehead.

3) High ponytails are best left for the sidewalk, the schoolyard, the sauna, or the sea. (Unless it’s fashioned into a topknot, which we LOVE!)

Is it just us? Or would a low bun have been a far better option?—India-Jewel Jackson
