Hair that rocked the Grammys

The holy grail of music awards, the 64th annual Grammys, took place in Las Vegas recently and proved a true showcase not only of singing talent, but of hairstyling as well.


Rapper of the moment and Grammy winner, Doja Cat, probably had one of the coolest styles on the red carpet, although somewhat difficult to describe. JStayReady (also known as Jared Henderson) styled Cat’s platinum blonde wig into a half up ponytail that was flipped out at the edges, with spikey strands shooting out of the crown of her head. And then of course there were her very short, curled under bangs, which wouldn’t flatter a lot of people, but which looked good on her, as did the two very long thin strands framing her face.


Billie Eilish had a similar look in that her do (albeit her own hair and raven black in colour) also involved a spikey half up-do, although her bangs were dead straight and so long they skimmed her eyelashes.


Teenage singing sensation and multiple Grammy winner, Olivia Rodrigo’s classic Hollywood-style, long hair was structured into what Glamour Magazine described as ‘polished S-waves’. The look was by Clayton Hawkins.


‘West Side Story’ star, Rachel Zegler, wore an asymmetrical bob with a just off-centre parting and no fringe. This style was created by David von Cannon.


British singer-songwriter Dua Lipa, always one to watch out for in terms of red carpet style, rocked super-straight, waist-length platinum blonde hair, topped off with conspicuously dark roots. A simple style that was offset by her complex, dominatrix-style black gown.


Socialite and DJ, Paris Hilton, has been seen in a super-high, Barbie Doll-like ponytail in recent months, and the Grammys was no exception. This time, though, she had a collar bone-length strand of slightly waved hair framing one side of her face.


Rapper, Megan Thee Stallion, had buttock-length, super-straight locks cascading down her back, while fellow rapper, Chloe Bailey, sported an intricate look – braids leading into a high ponytail of tightly waved long hair, with baby hair tendrils gelled onto her forehead.


Going for a casual look, model Hailey Bieber had her chocolate coloured hair in a loose plait, with long strands framing her face.


E!’s ‘Live from the Red Carpet’ host and trans actress, Laverne Cox, has favoured purple-hued hair for some time, and for the Grammy’s, her long hair was clipped back behind the ears and styled by Kiyah Wright. (Report by Joanna Sterkowicz)
