Let These Celebrity Crimped Hair Moments Inspire Your Next Party Hairstyle
The vintage style makes a *major* comeback.
No longer reserved for ‘80s costume parties, crimped hair is making a serious comeback in Hollywood and beyond. Here, we’re taking a look back at some of the best celebrity crimped hair moments to inspire your next go-around with the crimper.
These extra-voluminous crimps paired with Kim Kardashian’s overall look find themselves somewhere between antique baroque and ‘70s disco queen. Fun fact: celebrity stylist Chris Appleton actually used an
undone wire hanger
for this tight curl pattern.
There’s only one word to describe this much-obsessed-over look (and photo) from Tyra Banks:
. With her ‘00s signature fiery color, these mid-aughts crimps and sky-high beehive are to this day often imitated, never duplicated.
Red, brunette, blonde, bangs, crimped — there’s not a style or color
can’t pull off seamlessly and naturally no matter how left-field. Here, she sports some tight, crimped curls adding a delightfully ‘80s infusion to an otherwise modern look.
No one can pull off a crimp like
, and that’s probably why she keeps returning to the style. We saw Beyoncé rock crimps in her mile-long, honey blonde ponytail, onstage at her historic
, the Grammy’s, Ivy Park campaigns, and well beyond.
Joan Smalls loves
a vibrant curl, whether it take the form of mermaid waves, crimps, or her own naturally stunning curl pattern. For the 2019 Met Gala, she pulled out all the stops for this braided and crimped half-up ‘do that instantly landed on thousands of mood boards.
For the (second) wedding of Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber, model/reality star
went for light, glossy crimps that grazed her collarbone. Paired with her crushed velvet dress, it was a match made in textured heaven.
It’s always within the context of
her trademark ponytail
but Ariana Grande loves to add crimping as something of a hidden bonus. She’s worn the ponytail crimps on the VMAs red carpet, on stage, and at home — it looks like her pup, Toulouse, fully approves.
No matter how you style them, crimps are supposed to be about some freewheeling fun —
and Gigi Hadid
is Exhibit A. Styled for a shoot but captured in a series of Instagram shots, Hadid’s mile-wide grin is all the convincing you need to try hair crimping out for yourself.
