English rapper and singer Cher Lloyd made her debut on The X Factor (UK edition). Her first single was called "Swagger Jagger," which is possibly the best name for a song ever. Since becoming famous, Lloyd has pulled a total Amy Winehouse-ian beauty transition: Lloyd got loads of tattoos, lost a ton of weight and shaved half her head to sport even more high-volume hairstyles. (Note: We have no idea if she's also making any Amy Winehouse-ian lifestyle transitions.)
Perhaps inspired by a cockatiel, actress and singer Cassie takes her half-shaved hairstyle to new heights with a sleek and fierce updo. She completes her edgy look with a bronzed metallic smoky eye and nude lips.
If you've been watching Project Runway this season, you know Anya Ayong-Chee as the contestant who, despite having only learned to sew four months ago, is totally nailing it with her gorgeous printed outfits.

Here, she gives her model a similar 'do with braided cornrows.

Then, rock a smoky eye and high-gloss lip to further enhance the fierce.
This is Amelle from British girl group the Sugababes (think Europe's version of The Pussycat Dolls). If half of that sentence was completely gibberish to you, don't worry. All you need to know is that Amelle has been rocking a half-shaved hairstyle with demure curls this fall. This look is basically the naughty secretary costume you see every Halloween.
