Corrine Bailey Rae's new look and sound

I think her hair is so much prettier at this length. I didn't really like the corkscrew/sausage curls, which I think she achieved with rollers or something similar.

Her new album is coming out at the end of this year. Some of you may know that her husband died in 2008.

    I like her hair at both lengths. I love this picture though, especially the color of the dress.

    I love her hair like this. She is so pretty. Her husband committing suicide must have been brutal.

    Wow, this is very sassy and chic. I like both, but this style is maybe more mature? The other is a very cute style, but she works them both.

    That's a very sad story.
    Her hair is gorgeous, as is she, and so is her voice.

    I'm really digging the longer hair on her. And has it really been that long since her husband died? Seems like it just happened.
