Where do we even start? *NSYNC was home to some of the most diverse hairstyles in all of boy band history: Justin Timberlake's curly frosted tips, JC's boy-next-door cut, Joey's flame-red spikes, Lance's platinum top, and Chris' multicolored braids. Which one looks best on Bieber? It's hard to say...
