Blame J.Lo and the down-to-there locks she wore at the Latin Grammys this week, but a parade of long, sleek hair swept the American Music Awards red carpet tonight — and it has us seriously missing our high school flat irons.

It seems that everyone got on board, including Julianne Hough, Taraji P. Henson, and Ariana Grande. And when it came to the styling? Small tweaks gave each star an individualized finish.
