It only takes a quick flick through our Instagram explore page to know that we’re knee-deep in awards season. Everything from the Golden Globes, the Grammy’s and the Oscars have been and gone, leaving the Brit Awards to wrap up the celebrations (and oh, did we go out in style).

Last night, some of the biggest (and homegrown) stars on the planet came together to celebrate the best of British talent. But, before scooping up their well-earned trophies, they had to walk that all-important red carpet – AKA our favourite part of the entire night.

We've patiently waited to see this year’s glam so that we could add the latest hairstyles to our hall of fame. From old to brand new, keep scrolling to see the best hairstyles in Brit Award history (and exactly how to recreate them).
