ladies, say goodbye to your straightening irons: The latest word on the red carpet is that waves are here to stay.

On Sunday night, stars attending the Grammy and BAFTA awards let down their hair, in an ode to spring's normcore trend. So what's the secret behind the wavy dos' success?

The seemingly low-maintenance kink lets the gowns and accessories do the talking. Hot on the heels of the widely adopted "wob" (wavy bob) trend, Rapunzel-like lengths continue to be a red-carpet worthy look.


Staying true to their roots, Best New Artist nominees Haim rocked the wavy look like no others at the Grammy Awards on Sunday.
