Forget The Music: The iHeartRadio Awards Were All About The Hair

Jim Smeal/BEImages.
The iHeartRadio Music Awards are kind of like the kid sister to the Grammys, in that they're always a little more fun. The artists who perform and walk the red carpet take the opportunity to get a little edgy with their hair and makeup. Instead of glamour, they go for fun — which, as you can imagine, we love.

Sure, there were some high-profile moments during this year's show (uh, a Madonna/T-Swift duet?!). But, as always, our eyes were glued to the hair and makeup. From Madonna's waves to Zendaya's crimps to Brittany Snow's hot-pink lips, there were a few rad looks worth spotlighting. Ahead, we've rounded up our favorites of the night, both onstage and on the red carpet. Click through for some serious Monday beauty inspiration.
