American Idol may be a show about singing, but one of our favorite parts of every season is watching the contestants evolve from their auditions to the final shows. When they first stand in front of the judges, not only is their talent raw, but their hairstyle and fashion choices also have a long way to go! Here's a look at the two final female contestants' style evolution.
20-year-old Haley Reinhart traveled to American Idol auditions in Milwaukee from her hometown of Wheeling, Illinois. She wowed the judges with her bluesy singing voice, but she definitely didn't impress anyone with her fashion choices!
Haley Reinhart was on her way to becoming a total babe when she stepped out at the "Idol Prom" (a.k.a. the debut of the Top 20 Idol finalists) in February. Her form-fitting LBD is way better than those ripped jeans and chunky platforms from her audition!
Haley Reinhart hit up the party for Idol finalists looking like a rockstar in a black dress with spangled epaulets and design work. Her signature curls were blown out and then curled into big, loose waves.
Haley Reinhart may be considered the underdog in the American Idol final three, but when she sang "You've Really Got a Hold On Me" for the songs of Motown show, Reinhart got a hold on America. Maybe it was her gorgeous sleek hairstyle?
16-year-old Lauren Alaina traveled from her hometown of Rossville, Georgia, to audition in Nashville, Tennessee. Alaina's sound is considered "pop country" like her own idol, season four winner Carrie Underwood. Her rainbow colored dress is straight out of Woodstock, though!
