While models were walking down runways in New York, the musically inclined were walking down a red carpet in Los Angeles for the 61st Grammy Awards. New aspirational ponytails, a few boy bands, and bangs of all shapes and sizes were in attendance for music’s biggest night, but some were a little better than others. Here, 11 of the more memorable beauty looks from the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Hat hair has a bad rep, but we have a feeling Janelle Monae’s safety-pin- crown and hat-frame contraption will shift the narrative.
