Gaga for Grammys
Real Beauty staffers have been anxiously awaiting the Grammy red carpet for weeks. We love awards shows but the Grammys always tends to bump up the creativity when it comes to the red carpet hair and makeup. This year was no different from dye changes to Beyoncé's bling strands, check out our favorite trends.
Gaga for Blonde
Blonde was the color to be at the Grammys this year. While some shades were a little brassy, like Giuliana Rancic, who donned a shade that almost looked gray and quite similar to America's Next Top Model mentor Jay Manuel, we found Lady Gaga's blonde hues fabulous. Yes, the bold, bright yellow shade was a little ridiculous but we love it because that was exactly the point. If you are going to go outside the box, then follow Gaga's footsteps and go completely outside the box; don't just stick your pinkie toe out.
Beach Babe Waves
Surfer girl curls were all the rage on the red carpet in long and short locks. Marisa Miller rocked her signature breezy waves, which looked great matched with her sultry smoky eyes. We always love Miller's waves, but we especially loved that Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles proved short cuts can be beachy too. To get a similar look, rough dry your hair by blow-drying with your fingers. Then use a gritty salt spray like Bumble and Bumble's Surf Spray and mist throughout. For extra waves, curl a few random pieces on each side for added volume and bounce.
Bad to the Bangs
Bangs were a gal's best friend on the red carpet from Katy Perry's pinup style baby bangs to Jennifer Hudson's severe blunt bangs matched with a sleek ponytail. The bang showstopper of the night for us goes to Keri Hilson, who paired her pixie cut with flipped, side-swooped bangs. To get this look for any cut make a deep part to get volume to one side and dry hair, pulling up and back as you dry. Then, using a flat iron flip bangs out and top off with some hairspray for hold.
