The 2008 Grammy Awards

The 2008 Grammy Awards At, we're into hair-I suppose you could say we're hair addicts. And what better place to check out great hair than this year's Grammy Awards ceremony, a night celebrating the past, present and up-and-coming of the music industry. There were old stars, new stars, stars-back-from-the-dead, and political stars (who would have thought Barack Obama would be a Grammy winner?). The controversy's great; I mean, Amy Winehouse cleaned up (winning five Grammys), but was denied a visa to enter the US to claim her awards! There are so many crazy things going on at the Grammys, and we take a peek at styles chosen by some stars on their special night of nights. I like to wonder, "What kind of style would I step out with on the red-carpet?" Check out our photos, have a read of our styling tips, and do what I do: think about your own style too. Remember, you can get more detail on the stars' hairdos (as well as a taste of what you can do with your own photo at with our Hairstyling Tool below.

Carrie Underwood
She's a double Grammy winner who's also a star off the musical stage for her divine hairstyles. Tonight her hair looked slick and smooth. It was layered slightly through the back and sides as well as the front. The front gave shape to her gorgeous neckline, and brilliant bangs completed her style.

There's only way to describe Ayra: smoldering. Her hair-dark and mysterious-framed her shoulders with long layers through the sides and back. The front layers added shape to her style without distracting from her perfect look. This style would really suit those with a rounder face shape.

This blonde bombshell won a Grammy Award for her musical talents, but what about another award for this bold hairstyle? Her layers (cut through the back and sides) created body and volume, and her sexy bangs added an elegant touch over all. This gorgeous style is perfect for those with long face shapes.

Fantasia Barrino
Forget the 80s: Cyndi showed the world her style and taste are totally now. With loose curls, the back pinned up (to achieve maximum height and body), and the sides left to tickle her shoulders, Cyndi attracted well deserved attention left, right and center.

David undoubtedly looks cool, calm and collected. His glossy mane was layered through the ends to soften the overall look. The front layers, starting from his jaw line, created a sexy shape perfectly complementing his neckline.
Fantasia stunned guests at the 2008 Grammys. She was oozing attitude: her head was dramatically shaved at the back and on the left side. And to complete the outrageous style, the top and right side of her head were left longer and layered to create a sensational asymmetrical shape.

Juliana Depandi
Fergie didn't snaffle a Grammy, but there was no stopping her bewitching the crowd with this chic look. Her hair flowed deliciously below her shoulders with medium to long layers cut into the back and sides. This stunning style is perfect for those with round or fuller faces.

This Spanish heart-throb looked hot with a no fuss hairstyle. The back and sides were cut short and the top textured for definition. This style means easy maintenance, needing only a little wax or molding gum.

Juliana had the cameras going wild at the 2008 Grammys! Why? A drop-dead gorgeous hairstyle that worked well because it framed her shoulders perfectly. Layers through the sides and back, starting from mid-length and tapering down, gave her hair a lovely shape and great body and bounce.

Leona Lewis
Wearing her hair out to show off her stunning length was a seductive look for Kim. Her ends and layers were sliced to achieve a soft finish all over. Her top layers added height to her style-and this is perfect for her face shape. This hairstyle works well on fine to medium hair types.

This renowned pianist let out his wild side with his funked-up look and sassy spikes. His ends were razor-cut all over to achieve a wispy feathered finish. This style works well on Lang Lang because of his naturally straight hair. A little product is all that's needed to complete this look.
Leona's tousled tresses attracted as much attention as her good looks. Layers cut through the back and sides added body and bounce to her style, complementing her face shape too (the layers balanced out her narrow jaw line). This style works well on naturally medium to thick hair.

Raquel Welch

Miley was tousled and dazzling on the red-carpet. The silky length of her hair was set off by shorter layers cut from under the crown and blended down to the tips. This style enhanced the wave-like movement of her total look.

Raquel still has a sixth sense for fashion and she proved it on this night with her hairstyle. Sliced layers through the back and sides of her hair added flair and softness to her style. Her sexy bangs created a frame for her face, flawlessly completing her look. This wispy hairdo is perfect for those with longer faces as the flicked out layers create balance.

She's won two Grammys, and has a great new hairstyle that guests and fans love. What more could you want? The back and sides of her new hairdo were cropped short, but the top layers were textured for height and control. A perfect style for round faces, try it yourself with a little wax or molding gum.

Tia Carrere

Whitney Houston
This stunning blonde looked great with her blonde locks. Her ends were sliced to lighten the length, and layers were added to the mid-lengths to balance out her waves and curls. Her side-swept bangs finished off her style and complimented her face shape perfectly.

Tia looked divine. As she made her way up the red-carpet she turned heads with her sassy style. The length in her hair has been complimented by layers cut into the back and sides-an effect that also creates movement right to the edges of her hair. This style is best suited to those with round face shapes.

This divine diva chose to wear her hair up. The back was teased and pinned up, and loose fragments were left out to blend in with her sassy side-swept bangs. The top of her style was teased to add height, demonstrating among other things the versatility of this style.
