If any awards show makes a case for riotous colour and conceptual hair, it’s the Grammys. The makeup is loud, the hair is high; as a synthesis of electro beauty beats and soulful hair come together for a night of beauty magic.

Here, a look at the beauty winners from this year’s Grammys red carpet.

Janelle Monae
Monae will be taking home gold – with or without a Grammy in hand. A look steeped in gold, from the gilded paperclip cluster to the flecks of gold glitter, hers is a look that truly says: Awards Season. Is the paperclip the new hair accessory du jour? We won’t hold our breath.

Those classic Lopez beauty codes strike back; the pale nude lip, the deep contour, the false lashes, just add a derrière-skimming ponytail and her jaw-dropping Grammy’s beauty equation is complete.

Lady Gaga
Ally, is that you? After a bumper beauty Awards season, today’s smudgy eyes and messy waves brought the rockstar out of Gaga.


Kacey Musgraves

Walking the red carpet like a living doll, Kacey Musgraves makes a case for monochramtic beauty with blushed cheeks, rosy eye shimmer and a perfectly glossed pout. Pretty in pink, indeed.


Kylie Jenner
Woke up like this: Grammys edition. Baby Jenner’s nude cut-crease and twisty wet-look fringe are a match made in celebrity beauty-heaven.


Alessia Cara
Softly-mussed hair, ruby lips and a subtle wing; a pared-back beauty pairing forever in vogue.


Cardi B
Classic Cardi. Not many Grammy attendees could pull off Croquembouche pearls, rolling curls and a bold pink eye, but the music icon, as always, makes it work.


Sibley Scoles
Icy cold up top, beautifully warm on the face; it’s a game of contrast for Scoles, playing with warm and cool tones to her advantage.


Lilly Singh

For those playing at home, this is the look to recreate. Lilly Singh takes her plunging side part to new depths with the addition of some strategically placed, diamonté hair clips. An impressive line-up of sparkle, side-step your hair accessories this way.


Zuri Hall
Spicy with a hint of citrus; Hall serves us a lesson in colour with flushes of fuchsia and splices of orange on lids.


Kelsea Ballerini
Ballerini blends a little undone hair with a pop lip for some head-turning red carpet action.
