Which hairdos rocked the MTV Movie Awards red carpet?

Yara Shahidi (

The stars were out in full force on 16 and 17 May in Hollywood at the MTV Movie Awards, with ‘Grown-ish’ star, Yara Shahidi, sporting one of the most intriguing styles of the night.

Shahidi, an acknowledged style icon, wore two very high and long fishtail braids that skimmed her waist, with two small twists of hair running across the top of her forehead like a crown, connecting the braids. To complete the look, there were a few subtle loose wavy strands cascading behind each ear.

Mandy Moore sported quite an unusually severe look for her – a tightly pulled back chignon, which sat in the nape of her neck, coming off a centre parting and covering most of her ears, with absolutely no loose tendrils to soften the look.

Lara Condor sported an ultra sleek, ultra high ponytail, while ‘Riley Keough (Elvis Pressley’s granddaughter) also had her hair pulled off her face, into a braided ponytail.

Taylour Paige opted for a blunt cut bob swept over to one side, with the other side (at a much shorter length) tucked behind the ear.

Ashley Olsen had a slightly disheveled but glam look, with curtain bangs and a non-too-tidy top knot.

How many women can pull off a buzz cut? Well, Cush Jumbo positively rocked one on the red carpet. Jurnee Smollett’s wavy and very voluminous bob was in stark contast.

TikTok phenomenon, Addison Rae, opted for beachy blonde waves that were all shades of golden.

Kathryn Hahn stunned with her long mahogany locks in loose, messy waves emanating from a deep side parting. (Report by Joanna Sterkowicz)
