If the Grammy Awards were a parade of well-groomed beards, it would just be unsettling. Music-awards shows tend to be a mixed bag of out-there grooming looks, because musicians are weird and wonderful people by nature—and their profession encourages them to nurture the weird in the name of art. That said, some guys in attendance last night made hair and beard moves we’ll never be able to un-see. And we can’t just let it go. Here, the most memorable looks of the night, from most GQ-approved to rock-bottom crazy. Unless someone is paying you to make music, don’t try most of this at home.
Most Enviable Grooming Moves
Clean Cut, Can’t Lose
Nick Jonas and John Legend let their clothes do all the talking, and it paid off.
Beards with Zero Bald Patches
If you can grow a beard as well as Rick Ross and Joe Jonas can, you owe it to the world to ditch the razor.
The Cop Out
Nothing wrong with a baseball cap and some scruff. Plus, when you're as charming as Chance the Rapper, you always look dressed-up.
Ed Sheeran's hair looks like something you invent in your bedroom in middle school. This is not a thing.
Megadeth owns the long-hair look more than anyone, but we question anyone this resistant to change.
Serious Grooming Swerves
Dreads and Eyeliner
Never-groomed guys are one thing; never-groomed guys who also rock smoky eye makeup—like Brian Welch from Korn—are another level of swerve.
The Fluro Dye Job
Mike Posner and Blackbear just look like they're trying too hard. That, and waiting for their moms to pick them up from the school dance.
Statement Dental Work
Lil Yachty is officially in his own grooming dimension with this rainbow-color grill.
Only one man could upstage such antics. You do you, CeeLo.
