Grammy Glamour: The Best Hair and Makeup Looks
On 26th January at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, the world’s most talented people in the music industry came together to celebrate and acknowledge their achievements from the past year. The Grammy’s is an occasion for some of the biggest stars to step on to the red carpet and shine – and boy did they do that this year!
Let’s kick off with one of the most iconic looks of the night by the girl who scooped up a record-breaking five awards (including all of the top four categories) – Billie Eilish. Achieving Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best New Artist, Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album, 18-year-old Billie stuck to her famed neon green roots which seemed to be brighter than ever. For makeup, Billie opted for a natural look although went for a sparkling Gucci outfit and long, green nails.
The most nominated artist of the night, Lizzo, ruled the red carpet glam with classic Hollywood-esque curled hair. To compliment her chic white gown and styled locks, Lizzo’s makeup featured tones of purple on her eyelids, paired with a plum, glossy lip and rosy blush.
Winged eyeliner was a big trend on the Grammy’s red carpet this year, with the queen of the wing (Ariana Grande) competing with many others for her throne. Ari looked flawless, with black winged liner, soft orange eyeshadow and her lip-gloss? It was poppin! Alongside her makeup look, Ariana sported her signature high ponytail, which featured a cute ‘60s inspired flick.
Dua Lipa wore a simple white two-piece on the carpet, which enabled her electric blue, shimmering eyeshadow to pop! Dua also kept her current trend-setting two-tone hair colour combo, which was put into a fun updo with two straightened strands at the front.
Known for her beautiful, long textured curls, Camila Cabello went for a straightened ‘do with cute bangs. As for her makeup, Camila had rosy cheeks, smokey eyes and eyeliner.
Host Alecia Keys changed up her a look a few times during the evening. Opening the show, she displayed cornrow braids, which came together in a bejewelled low bun, with her signature no-makeup look. Later in the evening for her performance, she switched her braids for a sleek, combed back ‘do with a large chignon bun encrusted with more crystals. In both looks, her moulded baby hairs were adored with tiny jewels.
