After going virtual last year and later facing a short pandemic postponement, the 27th annual Critics Choice Awards returned in full force with an in-person ceremony that was well worth the wait. This year’s star-studded show—which honors the very best in television and film—was hosted by Taye Diggs and Nicole Byer. Aside from seeing so many of our favorite stars take home some much-deserved awards, the biggest highlight of the night for us was without a doubt seeing all of the show-stopping hair looks on the red carpet. From Angelica Ross’ towering braided updo and Kristen Stewart’s side-swept curls to Halle Berry’s daring bixie cut, there were plenty of hair moments that left us speechless.
Below, see the best hairstyles from the 2022 Critics Choice Awards.
Jada Pinkett Smith
Jada Pinkett Smith rolled up to the red carpet looking like an absolute queen with this diamond headpiece that decorated her perfectly shaved head.
Kristen Stewart looked elegant as ever with her side-swept waves that were styled to perfection by hairstylist Adir Abergel.
When it came to these beautiful side-parted curls for Issa Rae, hairstylist Felicia Leatherwood turned to Dark and Lovely products to achieve this stunning auburn color and True and Pure Texture clip-ins to add some extra volume.
We have major heart eyes over these yarn-wrapped pigtails that hairstylist Jerrod Roberts styled for Paulina Alexis using Bumble and bumble products. And, how incredible are her beaded hair ties from Leigh Starblanket?!
Dominique Jackson’s purple mermaid waves left us in absolute awe. We love how perfectly it matches with the rest of her monochromatic look.
