More than a handful of our favorite artists attended the 64th annual Grammy Awards to perform and accept awards. For the second year in a row, Trevor Noah kept us entertained throughout the night. Billie Eilish, BTS, and Lil Nas X were just a few of the artists that took our breaths with their performances. They were also nominated for several awards alongside Olivia Rodrigo, H.E.R, and the Hot Girl Captain, Megan Thee Stallion.
While the awards and performances were entertaining, our eyes were fixed on the beauty moments of the music-filled night. Here are our favorite hair, makeup, and manicures from the 2022 Grammys.
Doja Cat’s (Literally) Edgy Updo
Doja Cat is known for trying interesting hairstyles and colors, and she didn’t disappoint with the flipped ends and twisted braids that she wore to the Grammys. Hairstylist Jared Henderson, better known as JStayReady, gave a breakdown of the edgy half-up, half-down style on his Instagram. He twisted the front-middle of her hair into Bantu knots, then he slicked the rest of the hair in the front into a ponytail to create the look. The look doesn’t end there — Doja Cat has very short bangs that were curled slightly with long, straight tendrils of hair on either side of her face.
Cheri Moon’s Intricate Braids
We were impressed by singer Cheri Moon’s bangs and elaborately braided ponytail, to say the least. Her lengthy bangs were straightened and fell right above her eyebrows. Her hair was styled into a high ponytail with three twisted jumbo braids. The rest of her hair was wrapped around the base of the ponytail.
Laverne Cox’s Magenta Waves
Laverne Cox dipped into a bright hair color for the Grammys with vintage-looking magenta waves. Her dark brunette roots created a slight ombré effect. In a statement, hairstylist Kiyah Wright said the inspiration for the look was “vintage John Galliano 1920’s hair.” After cleansing the hair, she curled Cox’s hair. At the front, she added finger waves using Pantene Gold Series Intense Hydrating Oil and hairpins. She pulled the curled hair into a low ponytail before adding the fascinator on top.
The bright color in her hair seemingly served as the inspiration for her makeup. Matte dark violet and fuchsia eye shadows were smoked out on her lids and lower lash line, and a sparkly pink shade was painted onto the middle of her lids. Her eyes were lined with a metallic gold that shines next to the pink and purple hues. Her ombré lips were lines with an eggplant hue, and a magenta color was painted on her inner lips.
