MTV Video Music Awards 2014: 10 Best Tressed
Last year might have been all about twerking and Miley’s raver buns, but the MTV Video Music Awards 2014 were a much more sedate affair – with plenty of great hair.
Perhaps slightly less adventurous than previous years – well, what could top those nubbins? – this year still saw plenty of fun looks. In keeping with the youthful mood of the event, there were less glossy blow-dries than most red-carpet affairs and more trend-inspired looks.
Braids continue to be summer’s top hair trend, with plenty of interpretations of the look demonstrated – but it wasn’t just about plaits, check out ten of our favourite looks from the red carpet below!
Ariana’s high ponytail is becoming something of a trademark, but we still love the 60s mood of the sleek style and the youthfulness of the height.
A high ponytail is tightly braided for a catwalk-inspired look on Victoria Justice; it’s all in those skinny, tight lengths that take the look from relaxed weekend look to tough and on-trend.
Solange channels Diana Ross and the days of disco with a mass of fuzzy curls in a striking shape.
Kiesza works her chunky braid into a mohawk silhouette for an edgy red-carpet look with 360-degree appeal.
We’re glad to see Kesha looking better – and even happier to see her doing so with rainbow hair. Check out those hands ensuring she looks perfect for her red-carpet pose!
Kelly Rowland beats the heat with a braided headband style – simple, summery and stunning with those earrings and dress neckline.
Ireland Baldwin jumps on the trend for braids too, working with a knotted, loose style that’s been pulled apart for a totally dishevelled style.
Gwen Stefani proves you don’t have to be under 21 to rock it on the VMA red carpet. Here she keeps it simple with smooth lengths and a cute little knot tied at the front – we’re already copying this one!
Demi Lovato really rocks her undercut. We love the colour on the contrasting lengths of her longer side – this girl really knows how to have fun with her style.
Model Chanel Iman must be boiling in her high-necked leather number, but at least her new short hairstyle will be keeping her cool. She looks fab with this new bob!
