The MTV VMAs are known for two things: amazing performances and memorable style. The summer’s biggest award show didn’t disappoint with its bold looks.

Find out what your favourite A-listers’ glam squad came up with and what hair colour your clients will want to emulate in the salon…

Halsey surprised us once again with rainbow hues in her pitch-black hair. This time the multiple colours were present at the roots of her long, centre-parted mane. Her stylist Florido said that the rainbow part was Halsey’s idea: “She loves to stand out and switch things up”.

Lizzo, the empowering superstar everyone needs, showed up on the red carpet with a beehive. The first-time nominee brought back the 1960s hairstyle in a classy towering updo with an eyelash skimming fringe, created by Shelby Swain.


If you manage to take your eyes off the snake wrapped around H.E.R.’s neck, you may have seen the long side-parted micro-braids accessorised with miniature hair accessories, while her baby hairs were laid down creating a youthful look.

Bella & Gigi Hadid

Bella and Gigi Hadid appeared at the 2019 VMAs sporting similar dirty blonde shades and the resemblance was uncanny. Gigi wore her hair in loose waves with a deep side-part, while Bella pulled her hair up in a slick high-ponytail with a sweeping fringe.
