Last night, our favourite stars took to the red carpet at the Nokia Theatre in LA for the American Music Awards, one of the most eagerly-anticipated events on the music calendar.
With show-stopping performances from the likes of Ariana Grande and Jennifer Lopez as well as some well-deserved wins for Iggy Izalea, Katy Perry and One Direction, it was an evening packed with stunning fashion, hair and of course, music. Check our our pick of the hottest hair from the night:

Super-long and slicked back was a huge hair trend with Kendall Jenner, Christina Milian and Jessie J just a few of the celebs choosing to wear their tresses super-sleek and poker-straight while J.Lo opted for a softer, loosely curled finish.
To recreate the look, prep your locks with DESIGNLINE Root Boost Volumizing Foam – spritz directly onto damp roots and comb through before blow drying. Next, backcomb 2-3 inch sections of hair working backwards from the crown then gently brush back the hair so it all falls behind your shoulders and secure your ‘do with a spray of DESIGNLINE Finishing Spray Freeze Spritz. If you want to add some soft movement like Jennifer, curl the ends using the ghd Curve Soft Curl tong for romantic, bouncy curls.

Some of the more unique looks came from Kylie Jenner and Rita Ora. Kylie showcased her latest vibrant hair hue of choice: a stunning teal dip dye which she wore in a relaxed low bun. Rita went for her ‘do of the moment; a sky-high top knot – teamed with her sunshine yellow Zac Posen gown, her statement look certainly made sure all eyes were on her!
Usually favouring a more outrageous look, Nikki Minaj went surprisingly low key, teaming a stylish little black dress with a dead-straight, centre-parted long bob. The result? Trés chic!

And the boys didn’t disappoint either, with dishevelled quiffs on display everywhere you turned. Our favourites though were One Direction’s Zayn and Louis and the always-dapper Sam Smith.
