The effortless chic look seems to be a perma-trend on the red carpet.

Lady Gaga opted for ultra long tresses for the occasion, while Ke$ha showed off her cotton candy-inspired locks which instantly grabbed everyone’s attention.

AMAs 2013 Hairstyles: Voluminous Curls

When it comes to channeling a ladylike allure big curls are almost always a great choice. Last night, the stars that proved the accuracy of that principle were Katy Perry and Christina Aguilera. Both of them channeled Old Hollywood glamour, but in different ways. If ‘The Voice’ judge went for a Marilyn Monroe inspired look with blonde loose curls and a statement red lip, Katy’s jet black tresses were kept glossy and her flawless red orange lips became the center of attention.
