Kelly Clarkson hair has had its up and downs. The chunky highlights she somehow won over the nation's heart with on American Idol made me hate symmetrical highlights more than blunt bangs. Millions of surprisingly good albums later, the bleach blonde hair that she reinvented herself with made it look like she was trying harder than someone with her talent should have to. I really can't think of a single great hairdo from Kelly that has amazed me, but this tapered bob is giant step in the right direction.
The color needs some fine tuning, or maybe it would look better on Kelly if she weren't abusing the self-tanner. I love the layers and side bang action, and I think it makes her look more confident and natural than her overly styled, and overly bleached extensions. Kelly is a beautiful girl, and the padded bra she is sporting in this concert photo is the only artificial help that she needs.
