From shaggy bangs to shimmery eyeshadow, here are the 2021 Grammys beauty looks we can’t get enough of.

The 63rd annual Grammy Awards staged a limited, socially-distant red carpet last night. Thrilled at the prospect of actually having somewhere to go, some of music’s biggest stars pulled out all the stops (with some help from their glam squads) for the fashionable evening with everything from enviable hairstyles to jaw-dropping manis. Here are eight 2021 Grammys beauty moments we can’t stop thinking about.

Megan Thee Stallion’s updo 

The Megan Thee Stallion opted for an elegant French twist on the red carpet, with long curled bangs framing her face, by hairstylist Kellon Deryck. What better look to accept a couple of awards in — especially when Beyoncé is standing next to you for one of them?

Billie Eilish’s matching mani 

Nineteen-year-old Billie Eilish‘s gothic floral manicure (courtesy of nail artist Tammy Taylor) matched her Gucci outfit, bucket hat and face mask — but it didn’t stop there. The singer, who won Record of the Year for her her tune “Everything I Wanted” last night, switched up her acrylics a few times, including opting for a more muted look for the pre-show.

Lizzo’s statement hair clips 

Lizzo went full early ’90s with her jumbo glittery pink hair clips, which matched her pearlescent Balmain gown and made for a covetable accent to her cascading waves.

Halle Bailey’s winged eyeliner

Sister act Chloe x Halle had to join the show virtually, but that didn’t stop them from getting dressed up. Singer-actor Halle Bailey went for a black winged eyeliner, but with a cool graphic twist we’re tempted to try out for our next Zoom happy hour.

Dua Lipa’s shimmery eyeshadow 

You could spot Dua Lipa’s bold pink eyeshadow from across the room, making the standout look very face mask-appropriate.

Doja Cat’s shaggy bangs

The “Say So” singer hit the Grammys red carpet in an on-trend mullet created by Jared Henderson. The look was completed with a set of chic baby bangs that has us pondering (again) if we can pull the look off.

Phoebe Bridgers’s bold lip 

Indie singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers stayed true to her goth side with a deep plum lipstick that was so dark you wouldn’t be faulted for mistaking it for black from afar.

Haim’s slick middle parts

The Haim sisters used their 2021 Grammys beauty moment to pick a side in the great millennial vs. Gen Z/side vs. middle part battle, rocking their signature middle parts with curtain bangs of varying lengths.
