Instagram Roundup: Red Carpet Ready

Sunday evening brought together a slew of music’s biggest names for the MTV’s 2017 Video Music Awards. Per usual, the night included a ton of jaw-dropping performances and visuals—bringing to life the music that fans have fallen in love with over the past year. But we all know one of the best parts of an awards show is the red carpet, and we think the hairstyles rocked by this year’s nominees and presenters deserve their own category. We took to Instagram to show you some of our favorites (and give them some well-deserved awards).
