How to Style Your Hair After AMA’s Best Looks


How to Style Your Hair After AMA’s Best Looks

Some of the biggest names in music hit the red carpet for the 45th annual American Music Awards on Sunday evening. Amongst the glitz and glamour of some of America’s most celebrated entertainers, the Hollywood heroes brought beauty looks to the spotlight, highlighted some of the hottest trends in fashion, and of course, debuted some of the year’s most iconic hair fads and crazes. Everyone from Selena Gomez and Kelly Clarkson to Ciara and Pink were in attendance. These stars didn’t just awe us with unforgettable performances, they also set some of the week’s most buzz-worthy hairstyles. Here is how we’re styling our hair after the AMA’s best looks.

Beautiful, Bold New Hair Color

Maximalism is one of 2017’s biggest beauty trends––anything daringly bold is so in right now. And Selena Gomez knows it. The pop singer stole the show in more ways than one at the AMA’s Sunday evening. From performing her newest single, Wolves, to rocking fresh, blonde locks, Gomez took maximalism to the next level. The natural brunette hopped on the electric blonde hair trend and showed us all that anyone can turn heads with this vibrant hair color. We’re confident that Hollywood’s newest blonde bombshell will be everywhere in 2018.

And if we’re talking about bold hair colors, we can’t forget about Pink’s signature hairstyle. The accomplished American singer-songwriter has always sported bold hairstyles to match her rebellious personality. She’s been seen with everything from streaked dreadlocks to a fierce black skater haircut. At the AMA’s, Pink brought back her notorious hair color and wowed us all with her short, choppy pastel-tinted hair. Once again, Pink reminded us that our hair is one of the best ways we can show our true colors.     

FS Style Tip: It seems like everyone is switching up their natural hair color these days. Before you go bold with your hair color, make sure you have all the essential hair products to protect your hair color. Violet shampoo is an essential for all the blonde babes out there, and color protect shampoo and conditioner keep your hair healthy no matter what color you decide on.

Middle Part #FTW

Middle part for the win! Kelly Clarkson reminded us all why we’re so in love with the middle part hairstyle, rocking the red carpet as she posed with her two daughters. Clarkson’s straight, sleek middle part hairstyle put a final, polished touch on her overall chic look topped off with a black and gold gown and dramatically dark lips. Needless to say, Clarkson completely captivated America’s attention as she kicked off the night with Pink, performing a rendition of R.E.M’s Everybody Hurts.

Sorry we're not sorry for Demi Lovato's sleek look at the AMAs! Proving once again the Confident singer is at the forefront of today's style trends. Between Kelly Clarkson and Demi Lovato, we have reason to believe that the middle part hairstyle will prove to be as timeless as the classic American tunes that hit the stage Sunday evening.

Sleek, Slick, and Under Control

The wet hair trend graced the red carpet in a big way at this year’s AMA ceremony. Stars like Hailee Steinfeld and Ciara glossed their hair back for one of the most sophisticated, yet edgy looks of all time. Steinfeld paired this head-turning hairstyle with a smoky eye and nude, glossy lip for a look that’s just as bold as it is elegant. Meanwhile, Ciara rocked the wet hair trend on curls and topped it all off with an all-leather everything outfit. The slicked back hair look definitely had a moment at the AMA’s this year, and this hairstyle is shaping up to take 2018 by storm.    

FS Style Tip: To get this wet hair look for yourself, purchase some smoothing gel, and apply it generously to the roots of your hair. Then brush your back, tuck it behind your ears, and spritz on a shine mist to get that incredible shine.

Curly or Clean Cut, Count Us In

Our favorite looks wouldn't be complete without mentioning the men of the 2017 AMAs. Shawn Mendes took the stage and won his first AMA award, all the while looking like he "woke up like this." And we don't mind! Mendes's signature AMA look was defined by messy curls, plus a little extra volume. How can you achieve this modern men's hairstyle? We suggest styling your hair with some FS for Men Grooming Creme. Grooming creme has a low-medium hold which allows for flexible control and is ideal for naturally curly or wavy hair.

Looking for a men's haircut that's easy to style? We're looking to Nick Jonas for inspiration! At Sunday's AMAs, Nick Jonas worked a short, straight cut with a touch of style. This Jo-bro makes a low-maintenance men's hairstyle work for any occasion.


This year’s AMA’s ceremony was more than just a celebration of music. Celebrities strutted down the red carpet for a chance to sport the latest fashion trends and provide America with a few unforgettable moments of hair inspiration.
