Grammy hairdos rock the red carpet

Many deft and dazzling examples of hair artistry were visible on the music world’s glitterati at the 62nd Grammy Awards, held this past weekend in Los Angeles.

Esperanza Spalding sported a voluminous, natural hair crown from the front, with rows of braids at the back.

FKA twigs turned heads with a striking style that complemented her intricately over-the-top outfit. Ombred fiery red locks tumbled gently onto her shoulders from a half updo.

Lana Del Rey sported a slightly deceptive style, in that at first glance it looked like a classic brunette updo, until you noticed the auburn-hued sweep with flicked edge on the top of her head.

Lizzo well and truly nailed all out, old-style Hollywood glam, in both dress and hairdo, which comprised a side sweep of long, black gentle waves.

Pia Mia’s platinum blonde, Khaleesi-type hair was crimped and partly clipped back, with flatteringly messy tendrils framing her face.

Dua Lipa has been sporting the 50/50 hair trend (i.e. two high contrast colours worn in tandem as in dark brunette and white blonde) for some time. At the Grammys, her 50/50 hair was styled in a high knot with a free edge, accompanied by dead straight chin-length side pieces.

H.E.R. sported a natural, very high messy bun, with well-laid edges around her face. Also sporting laid edges, but embellished with Swarovski crystals, was Grammys 2020 host, Alicia Keys, whose cornrows were pulled back into a low bun.

One wonders if the music world will ever see Ariana Grande without her signature, slicked back high ponytail on the red carpet and the Grammys were no exception. This time, though, the ponytail itself was platinum blonde, with a loose, ironed, chin-length strand on one side of her face.

Only a true 1980s icon like Cyndi Lauper could rock a messy, long platinum blonde mullet, as she did on the Grammy red carpet.
