Christina Aguilera seems to be the queen of transformations. We think it's awesome to be bold enough to reinvent your image, and Christina knows how to rock each one!

She started with the youthful girl next door image of her "Genie in a Bottle" days, transitioned to dark streaks in her blonde hair and braids and cornrows to give an edge to her image for "Stripped," her fourth album. She's even done the old Hollywood platinum blonde with soft waves (way ahead of the curve, based on the trends we saw on the SAG Awards Red Carpet!), and lately embraced color through dip-dyes of pinks, purples, blues, and more.

Christina isn't afraid of a new look, nor hair dye or scissors. This editor wishes she could take a page from X-Tina's book and be bold enough to choose a new look! We all need something fun and fresh now and again. What do you think of Christina's hair styles? Fun and funky or too over the top? Let us know on our facebook page here!

Click through the gallery above to see some of Ms. Aguilera's drastic hair styles ever since she first told us "What a Girl Wants."
