Everyone appears to be like to the VMA’s for the latest trends in hair and this yr the seems to be level to softer, more delicate cuts and coloration.
Most of the hair types took cues from the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s, giving the MTV Music Video Awards on the Discussion board in Inglewood, CA, a distinct retro flare.
Ariana Grande modified dresses but donned a high ponytail with long creamy mocha brown hair all through many of the evening, reminiscent of the late 60s and 70s. She triggered a hurricane of applause when she stepped onto the crimson carpet in her black leather-based mini and matching thigh-high go-go fashion boots, also an echo from the 60s with all kinds of contemporary updates. Others doing the high ponytail (suppose I Dream of Jeannie), have been actresses Arden Cho and Victoria Justice.
Rapper Iggy Azalea and signer Rita Ora each donned slick-back wet appears in blonde. Recording artist Jessie J did hers in black. Iggy paired hers with a silvery metallic strapless Versace gown with ribby accents throughout the bodice. The creation was flown from Milan for the event. “I just wanted to choose one thing very sleak and timeless,” she defined on the red carpet. Her hair was a terrific match. Rita Ora paired her slick wet look with a daring purple dress with spaghetti shoulder straps and split up the leg that climbed to her waist. This was big look on the VMAs and a sign that this model is staying sturdy.
Katy Perry arrived on the red carpet with stunning black hair and many shine. The waves began about half method down the shaft of the hair, one thing we noticed repeated within the night. The length, waves and darkish, darkish coloration echoed appears to be like for the ’60s.

Taylor Swift’s new album could also be titled 1989 (the yr she was born) however this night she went with a vintage look, a piecey, neutral blonde bob, medium-full bangs to match a silvery excessive-waisted skirt for her efficiency of her new music, “Shake It Off,” for the first time live.
Miley Cyrus, famous for her over-the-high gyrations and on-stage grinding, appeared on the purple carpet in a rubber-black tube top, however her hair set the tone with a delicate, grown-out pixie look in some pretty quiet blonde shades, nothing like the outrageous styles and habits within the last year. Maybe she was leaving room for the light to shine on her efforts to lift awareness of homeless youth in Los Angeles. A younger man accepted her top award on the occasion, for video of the year, reading a speech about the numbers and plight of this population just outdoors the doorways. Cyrus cried brazenly in the background.
Singer Gwen Stefani, one among my favorites for the evening, went with long blonde hair, parted neatly on the fitting with a small bun pinned opposite, harking back to the ’40s pin-up type. It was lovely and a standout however, still, understated and delicate.
What we did not see have been a number of multi-toned kinds, the ombres. 5 Harmony had a couple ombres however that was about it. Even Beyonce’s lovely wavy tresses had been pretty uniform in colour, a rich gentle brown with light caramel highlights. She grew to become the high level of the show when Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy Carter offered her with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
