Tonight's Grammy Awards red carpet had some pretty hair-raising moments. While makeup-wise it seems like most of the stars took a page out of Alicia Key's no-makeup book—opting for minimal over bold—that just allowed everyone's manes to take center stage.
Both Janelle Monáe and Tracee Ellis Ross went for braids that crawled down their backs. Tierra Whack and Halle Bailey of Chloe x Halle brought their baby hairs out to play. And Cardi B, H.E.R., and Lilly Singh added some standout accessories to their tresses. All in all, the industry's best performers managed to put on a really impressive show.
Ahead, check out our favorite beauty looks from tonight's Grammys.
Up-and-coming artist Tierra Whack went all out with bright pink, purple, and yellow eyeshadow, spider lashes, and all the baby hairs.
Halle Bailey of Chloe x Halle got the baby hair memo too. Meanwhile her sister, Chloe, was not to be outshined, and stood out with her own emerald eye look.
Janelle Monáe's hair look is business in the front, braid party in the back.
Did you think Cardi B was going to go subtle for the red carpet? Definitely not. Unless you consider a pearl-encrusted beehive to be subtle.
Rapunzel cornrows are the only hairstyle we want to wear now thanks to Tracee Ellis Ross.
Leave it to Lady Gaga to make visible roots look bad ass.
Alicia Keys didn't let a little Grammys hosting gig keep her from breaking her no makeup streak. The singer went au naturel for her big night.
Lilly Singh is out here really making a case for bringing back our childhood barrettes.
Sometimes it's best to go simple, as Alessia Cara displays, with retro hair and a simple red lip.
H.E.R. jazzed up those voluminous curls with a little middle part bling.
