How To Recreate Doja Cat’s Nostalgic, Blonde Hairstyle From The Grammys
Doja Cat, the rapper who is one of the biggest stars to come blow up during the 2020s, was a knockout at yesterday’s 64th annual Grammy Awards. On the red carpet, she wore a mint-colored, atelier Versace dress, with platform, strap up sandals, frosty makeup, and a blonde, 90s-inspired hairstyle that we’re in love with.
This isn’t the first time Doja, who won her first Grammy last night with SZA for “Kiss Me More,” has pushed the envelope with a nostalgic hairstyle. For her 2022 video for “Need To Know,” she took inspiration from T-Boz’s red bob from the 1999 video for “No Scrubs.” JSTAYREADY was behind both that moment, as well as Doja’s blonde, flipped out style with tendrils, cropped bangs, and bantu knots.
