Taye Diggs returned for the third time to host the mostly virtual ceremony from Los Angeles. With the exception of a few in-person appearances from A-list presenters such as Ashley Park, Justin Hartley, and Chrissy Metz, the majority of our favorite stars tuned in from home.
Nevertheless, all the attendees and their glam squads still managed to make the show a stylish affair and serve all of us some major hair inspo. Whether they opted for more understated glamour or a more show-stopping look, all of these award-worthy hair moments definitely deserve some recognition in our book!
Here, see all of our favorite hairstyles from the 2021 Critics’ Choice Awards.
Judas and the Black Messiah actress Dominique Fishback sparkled and shined at the award show with her rhinestone-studded hair created by hairstylist Monae Everett. The bling-y jewels were the perfect accessory to dress up her dramatic side part and gorgeous natural curls.
When it comes to styling natural hair, hairstylist Nikki Nelms never misses! This gorgeous gravity-defying updo that she created for Yara Shahidi is a work of art. We’re especially loving the electric blue thread that she threaded into the hairstyle.
For actress Amanda Seyfried’s hair, hairstylist Renato Campora went for “ a modern take on a Berlin 1920s cabaret” according to his Instagram. Between the retro finger waves and her super chic updo, we’d say he totally nailed the look!
Queen Gambit’s star Anya Taylor-Joy took home the award for Best Actress in a Limited Series last night and for her big moment, hairstylist Gregory Russell kept her blonde locks looking sleek and silky.
Best Actress winner Emma Corrin gave off major cool-girl vibes with her effortlessly messy hair. To create this stunning look, hairstylist Daniel Martin referenced “90s Leonardo DiCaprio with effortless tom-boyish hair to compliment the femininity of her dress.”
Hairstylist Ursula Stephen delivered an intricate braided half-up hairstyle with face-framing braids for SeeHer award winner Zendaya. According to Zenday’s Instagram, the dazzling look paid homage to an iconic braided hairstyle worn by the late Cicely Tyson. To be honest, we are still dreaming about this gorgeous look!
