Although I haven’t posted about the last few award shows, my long time followers know I rarely miss the actual show and can usually be found on Twitter (@ECPrincess1) during their airing! I’m such a music award show fanatic, I LIVEEEEEEEE for the red carpet looks, memorable acceptance speeches and historical performances. Big shows like the Grammy and BET Awards never disappoint as many celebrities use the opportunity to debut new looks and hairstyles. I had hair crushes on a few styles tonight and one I will be re-creating this summer for SURE!
I’m going to start with my favorite look of the 2014 Grammy Awards – even though it got absolutely ZERO camera time and I had to work hard to find photos of the style! You all may remember that I have a girl crush on Ashanti. I think she is absolutely gorgeous and more often then not is a red carpet hit, plus she always manages to look slim but curvy – something I’m always striving for! Anyway, when I first saw her shared photos on Instagram of this bombshell blonde bob, I fell immediately in love!
The color, the body, the sexiness of it all! I seriously love this look and it is quite different from Ashanti’s norm as she normally prefers long locks. Definitely a change for the better, mark my words I will have this exact look this summer!
Next let’s get into Beyonce’s hair. While I hated the dry version, that “wet-hair-come-do-me-baby” look she had on stage?! I temporarily became a member of the BeyHive and as usual was bowled over by her performance which prompted me to finally purchase the album. I’ll admit I often get overwhelmed by all the talk regarding every move she makes and it often causes me to just check out altogether. But, after seeing the performance, hearing her sing and listening to the words – I cannot wait til I’m drunk in love! And that post-baby body? Don’t hurt em Bey!!!!
Let’s get into Alicia Keys’ hair. I hated her first cut a couple of years ago…it reminded me of a soccer mom. But this updated, tapered cut allows her beauty to shine and gives her the edge an artist of her caliber – 17 time Grammy award winner – should possess! And just like Bey and Jay, I just love the love she and Swizz Beatz display whenever they are out….never mind the circumstances around the beginning of their relationship. Was that shade I just threw? Me thinks so…nevertheless she slayed the 2014 Grammy Awards!
I’m a proud Tamartian! I’m here for every bit of her (and her sisters’) shenanigans and Love & War was one of my favorite albums of 2013, which is saying a lot because it was a great year for music. I was so rooting for her to take home at least one Grammy, but being nominated is still a huge accomplishment. While I do love me some Tamar, that over the top, platinum-with-black-roots wig she has been wearing since the beginning of time was SO played out! When I saw her jump on the mid-length trend with this honey blond look I shouted YASSSSSSSSS HONEY! SHE WON! LOL!
And her post baby body is amazing as well! We see your werq Tay Tay!
My fifth favorite hair look of the 2014 Grammy Awards was from Ms. Katy Perry. Honestly, I don’t know too much about her. Sure I know the songs because that’s the music playing in Forever 21 when I’m scooping up some cheap accessories but until the award shows, I never identify her as being the artist. However, every red carpet she grazes, I’m usually mesmerized with her look from head to toe and this year Katy did it again! This twisted bun updo looks like something straight out of a YouTube tutorial, complete with kanekalon hair and all! But I ain’t mad at it, lol!
Those are my top 5 picks for best hair of the 2014 Grammy Awards – did I miss anyone?
Oh and as an honorable mention, I loved Ciara’s preggo style! So glamorous and gorgeous!
