Retro hair trend at American Music Awards

Many stars sported hairdos reminiscent of days gone by at the American Music Awards (AMAs), which took place on 22 November in Los Angeles.


One such example was transgender actress and activist, Laverne Cox, whose hair channeled Brigitte Bardot’s famous coif circa the 1960s – long, blonde, studiously tousled with a teased crown and a full, parted fringe.


Model and actress, Cara Delevigne, evoked 1940s Hollywood Goddess, Veronica Lake, with her long blonde hair cascading in waves, coming off a deep side parting and tucked behind one ear.


Singer, rapper and songwriter, Doja Cat, dazzled with a cute, cropped auburn-shaded hairstyle that had a 1930’s wave contouring the forehead.


Perhaps the most talked-about hairstyle of the night belonged to Jennifer Lopez, who went for an uncharacteristic shoulder length, fringe-less bob in a wet look.


Singer Dua Lipa, who often sports an edgy hair look on the red carpet, opted to keep her middle-parted dark locks swept into waves behind her ears and fastened with a gold barrette clip on one side.


Songwriter, singer, dancer and model, Ciara, stunned in cornrows with baby hairs around the face slicked into intricate twirls, while socialite and DJ, Paris Hilton, had a voluminous, high pony tail flowing out of her two-toned and side-parted crown, with each side combed in a different direction.


Also rocking the high blonde pony tail style, albeit a more traditional and less structured one, was reality star and entrepreneur, Kristin Cavallari.


Singer Bebe Rexha stuck to the Jessica Rabbit-toned red hair colour (with exaggerated dark roots sprouting from a middle parting) that she wore to the E! People’s Choice Awards, only in a longer length and falling straight this time.
