The stars that walk the Grammys red carpet always manage to look trendy, fabulous, and like they did everything with ease. The musical awards show is where the dangerously short hemlines, or random costumes (angel wings anyone? an egg?) make their appearance. When you are letting your clothes do the talking it’s important to keep your hair simple and natural. Gavert Atelier Hair Salon helped our Grammy reporters do just that.

Here are some tips they taught us:

  • For curly, messy waves: 1. Use two different curling irons; one with a big barrel and another with a medium barrel. This will make the curls look less structured and symmetric. 2. Pin the curls up with bobby pins for about 30 minutes after you roll them with a curling iron 3. If your event is later in the day, make the curls very tight and then mess them up and run your fingers through them or comb them with a wide toothed comb a few minutes before your big red carpet arrival
  • For slightly wavy hair with tons of body: 1. blow dry your hair upside down to gain body 2. Divide your hair into sections, curling each one and adding a lot of hairspray for every layer 3. Tease your hair, focusing on the crown. Lifting it up the bigger the better is key, so that it’s even larger than you want it to be. Trust us, it will fall down by the time you reach the carpet
