Some celebrities stick to a signature look, but Doja Cat is not one of them. And thank goodness for that! It makes looking forward to her red-carpet appearances that much more suspenseful. After her dramatic, dark mullet and smoky, black, winged eye makeup at last year’s Grammy Awards, we’ve been especially eager to see how she’d look at the 2022 Grammys. And she definitely didn’t disappoint; she delivered a beauty look that’s basically the total opposite of the previous year’s.
Doja arrived on the Grammys red carpet early wearing a hairstyle that looked yoinked right off of Gwen Stefani’s head during No Doubt’s Tragic Kingdom tour. The platinum, half-up style was brimming with late-’90s trends: baby bangs, face-framing tendrils, and spiky little Bantu knots.
Stylist Jared Henderson, better known as JStayReady, prepped Doja’s blonde wig with Joico Color Balance Purple Shampoo and conditioned it before blow-drying it straight with the GHD Helios Professional Hair Dryer. After sectioning off the hair from temple to temple and twisting in JoiGel Firm Styling Gel, he further straightened the back with the GHD Unplugged Styler.
