They Were Rockin’ Those Dos: The Best Red Carpet Hair at the 2012 MTV VMAs

September 7, 2012  |  

By now you’ve probably seen that Rihanna has once again gone short, sporting a neat, new pixie “do” at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards. RiRi’s cropped coiff looked youthful as the fresh-faced beauty made quite an entrance in a white hot Adam Selman gown at the Staples Center in L.A. before she hit the stage to kick off the evenings performances.

There were a number of other memorable manes too. Here are pics of some of our favorite stars:

Zoe Saldana

Zoe sported a tousled, asymmetrical faux bob on the red carpet to compliment her pale pink  Salvatore Ferragamo minidress and black strappy sandals, for a soft, slightly mussed, but touchable look.

Nicki Minaj

On the red carpet, Nicki opted for dramatic flair with a yellow and pink wig that looked flipped, teased and feathered all in one. The only thing more dramatic than her hair was her black Versace catsuit bedecked in red crystals that made the outline of a corset on her torso. Oh, and the spiked Christian Louboutins.

Alicia Keys

Alicia, whose new album “Girl on Fire” is due out in November, wore a deep side part in her hair to accentuate her blunt cut asymmetrical bob, which seemed to be a nod to the neckline of her dress.

Gabby Douglas

Gabby looked gorgeous with her center part offset by soft waves falling past her shoulder and sparkled like the superstar that she is in an on-trend black and gold sequined dress. (Kind of makes all that criticism about her hair during the London Olympic Games look rather silly in retrospect, doesn’t it?)

 

Who do you think had the best hair of the night? Who did we miss?

    I haven’t been a fan of Rihanna’s past hair styles (i.e. the clown red style), but I think this short black style looks really great on her. Alicia Keys’ hair looks great too. And I don’t get how Nicki Minaj is on this list.

    Nicki best hair? lol. Nicki my girl, but her hair was too big. It’s too hot for all that lmao. I think she would have looked better if she wore a smaller wig lol. She could have kept the color, but just minimize it a lil…I love Rihanna’s pixie cut

  • TRUTH IS

    Am all for sporting your own hair so Rihanna and A.Key did it for me
