If the Academy Awards is for elegance and the Met Gala is for artistry, the MTV Video Music Awards is the peak of awards night insanity. The 2015 VMAs will always be remembered as the event where Kanye West announced his 2020 presidential bid – think about that for a second.
In keeping with this zany vibe, the celebs know the VMAs are the night to let their hair down (so to speak) and go a little crazier with their hair, beauty and fashion looks. Host Miley Cyrus (again, think about that) led the way with a series of increasingly colourful dreads and revealing looks (one was just cellophane with balloons stuck to it), and a bevy of other brightly-dressed celebs followed suit.
Here are 10 of the craziest hair looks from the night.
1. Jared Leto
Slicked back and pink – our new favourite men’s look.
2. Amber Rose
Most of the attention was given to her statement (literally) outfit, but this blonde crop is also worthy of a mention.
3. Justin Bieber
We never thought we’d see The Biebs ditch his signature style… and, upon seeing the alternative, that was maybe with good reason.
4. Kelly Osbourne
Between the chic purple hue and cool undercut, Kelly’s experimental hair look was on point.
5. Taylor Swift
Debuting her vintage Wildest Dreams video at the awards, the iconic blonde turned heads as a sultry brunette.
6. Britney Spears
In a fashion homage to her Toxic look of yesteryear, Britney showed off her more current style with a multi-hued high ponytail.
7. Rita Ora
We’re still trying to work out this intricate weave of knots and sections. If you can work your head around it, let us know.
8. Aubrey O’Day
‘You can never have enough braids’ is, we assume, Aubrey’s mantra.
9. Vanessa Hudgens
There’s always one A-lister who ops for boho.
