After being forced to go virtual last year due to Covid-19, the American Music Awards returned to its full glory Sunday night with an in-person event  in Los Angeles. The ceremony, which was led by first-time host Cardi B, brought together music’s biggest stars from every genre to honor the achievements from some of the industry’s top talent. Olivia Rodrigo, Bad Bunny, BTS, and Jennifer Lopez were just a few of the stars that dazzled the audience with spellbinding performances.

But, entertainment aside, we simply couldn’t get enough of all the gorgeous hair that our favorite stars (and their glam teams) blessed us with last night. From colorful braids to elegant updos and pretty waves, there was no shortage of hair inspiration.
