Crystal Hayes (born September 25, 1984) is a beauty queen who has held the title Miss Michigan USA and competed at Miss USA.

Hayes, who grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan region, is a pageant veteran, having completed in numerous other pageants before winning the Miss Michigan USA crown. Her first placement came in the Miss Michigan Teen USA pageant when she placed in the semi-finals. She returned the following year and placed in the finals in the same pageant.

After taking a year off, Hayes competed in the Miss Michigan USA 2004 pageant in late 2003. She placed fourth runner-up to Stacey Lee of Rochester Hills. The following year Hayes competed again, and won the Miss Michigan USA 2005 title. It was her fourth attempt at a Miss Universe Organization state crown.

During her reign Hayes resided in Novi, Michigan and worked as a cosmetologist in Northville, Michigan. She represented Michigan in the nationally televised Miss USA 2005 pageant broadcast live from Baltimore, Maryland on April 11, 2005.

She placed in the semi-finals in the pageant, which was won by Chelsea Cooley of North Carolina. In late 2005, Hayes passed on her crown to Danelle Gay of Lapeer.

Hayes, who is partially of Finnish heritage, comes from a successful pageant family. In the same year that she captured her Miss Michigan USA crown, her younger sister Caley placed second runner-up in the Miss Michigan USA pageant.

The following year when Hayes passed on her crown, both Caley and a third sister Cassey competed for the teen title. Caley placed second runner-up for the second year in a row, and Cassey made the semi-finals.
