Styles to die for at E! People’s Choice Awards

One of the most striking hairdos at the recent E! People’s Choice Awards in Hollywood in December was seen on red carpet host and trans actress, Laverne Cox.


She opted for purple and lavender-hued locks (to match her intricate feathered gown) in a glamourous genie ponytail that fell forwards to frame her face.


Regarded as Hollywood’s pop culture event of the year, the E! People’s Choice Awards, which are voted on entirely by the public, was back this time in full swing with live (as opposed to virtual like in 2020) audiences and a plethora of glamorous stars populating the red carpet.


Also sporting similar purple and lavender hues to Cox, but in a structured and braided updo coming off corn rows that were pulled tightly back from her face, was comedienne Leslie Jones.


Oscar winner Halle Berry, who won the People’s Icon Award, rocked a twisted top knot that was complemented by a flattering, long, side-parted fringe swept over one eye. A top knot at the other extreme – as in pulled back severely off the face – was seen on Scarlett Johansson.


Christina Aguilera won the Music Icon Award and her trademark long, platinum blonde hair was in a half ponytail high on the crown of her head, with soft waves cascading down to her waist. But really the hairstyle, pretty though it was, took second place to Aguilera’s bizarre outfit, which took some figuring out – cowboy style cutaway chaps over fishnet stockings!


Singer, model, actress and famous offspring, Paris Jackson’s shoulder-length, messily waved rose gold locks toned in with her brown, grunge-style designer gown.


Latina singer Becky G’s long black waves nearly reached the daringly high, waist level slit of her striking yellow and black dress.


Actress Sydney Sweeney’s long blonde hair was styled in retro waves, circa the 1940s. Social media star, Charli d’Amelio, also went the 1940’s route, with her long, waved black hair falling over one eye, a la Veronica Lake, the famous actress of that era who was known for her iconic hairstyle.


H.E.R. proudly rocked a mass of centre-parted, below-the-shoulder length tight waves, which is becoming a fairly usual look for her, but wonderfully flattering nonetheless.

TV and radio personality, Rocsi Diaz, sported an unforgiving blunt cut, centre-parted, shoulder length bob with no bangs to soften the look.


Selling Sunset’s Chrishell Stause swopped out her usual long blonde locks for a dark brunette version, while ‘Real Housewife of Beverley Hills’ star and actress, Garcelle Beauvais, went all out glam, with a long, ultra-straight sweep of shiny black hair coming off a very high ponytail.


Dancer, signer and YouTuber, JoJo Siwa, ditched the high, tight, side ponytail and giant fabric bow she was synonymous with for so many years, and replaced it with a fun, bubble braid look on each side of her head, with the braids meeting in the middle and fastened by a sparkly clip.
