The global music industry’s biggest awards event, the Grammys, unfolded in Los Angeles on 5 February and was a veritable showcase of creative hairstyling.
Grammys newbie Amanda Reifer must surely have been the leading contender for the most towering hairdo of the night, with her chestnut waves piled into a three-tiered top knot.
Trans actress Dylan Mulvaney’s structured braided bun, by Angelina Panelli, was pulled back from her forehead at an angle sharp enough to match her cat’s eye liner.
DJ and socialite Paris Hilton had her trademark, long straight platinum extensions arranged in a half updo, with a messy topknot and loose tendrils around the face.
Beyoncé sported long pre-Raphaelite ombre curls. Also sporting Botticelli waves was Lizzo, albeit in jet black and with a single kiss-curl gelled onto the middle of her forehead.
Laverne Cox can always be counted on to debut a new look for every event and the Grammys was no exception. Her ombre hair, created by @kiyahwright, was pulled back into a thick fishtail plait, with very long face framing blonde braids.
Adele is the perennial poster girl for Classic Hollywood glam hair and her look for the Grammys channelled 1940s screen siren Veronica Lake, with a long, side sweep of loose strawberry curls.
Taylor Swift’s thick, eyebrow-skimming fringe is pretty much her go-to, and in this instance, the rest of her hair was pulled back into a non-too-tidy updo.
Country legend Shania Twain sported a bright red very long straight wig and bangs, worn under arguably the biggest polka dot hat in history. Fellow country star Maren Morris (pictured with her above) opted for a wet look, with her locks slicked back behind the ears.
Doja Cat’s look has been getting more extreme by the day, and on the Grammys Red Carpet she had a tiny black razor cut pixie style with the shortest fringe ever. This channelled early 2000s R&B stars.
Veteran actress Fran Drescher of ‘The Nanny’ fame was a surprise addition to the red carpet and had her long brunette hair in curls pulled back from her face with a thin headband.
H.E.R.’s statement hairdo (i.e. long deep wave curls) was very much in evidence. (Report by Joanna Sterkowicz and Natasha Chisese)
