Red Carpet Hair Trend: Swept-Up Strands


The coolest trend to rise from the 2012 Grammy red carpet? Electro-retro hair! Celebrities including Taraji P. Henson, Katy Perry, Alicia Keys, and even Bruno Mars slicked back the sides of their strands and teased the tops to mimic masculine rock 'n' roll coifs from the '50s—with a modern twist! How did these starlets bring the sky-high vintage hairstyle to the twenty-first century? Taraji let some face-framing bangs fall loose in front, Katy gave her sleek, gravity-defying faux hawk a rainbow-bright makeover, and Alicia sported a soft bouffant to balance the angular silhouette of her futuristic fashion choices.
