Janelle Monáe didn’t just make the world rethink headbands at the 2017 Academy Awards with her diamond-encrusted accessory. She actually made us consider chopping off all our hair with her brand new pixie cut. Now that’s a unforgettable Oscars beauty moment.

Just yesterday, the actress walked the Pre-Oscars Awards Dinner red carpet wearing her hair longer and fashioned in an updo at the nape of her neck—of course complete with a beautiful broach. So, as you know, the makeover is totally unexpected. But seeing Monáe with a hair piece? The updo/hair accessory combo has been something of a Monáe signature over the past year, and we are living for it.

Apart from the evening's headband moment, we've seen Monáe rock chic gold bobby pins, safety pins, gemstones, metallic silver hair ties, and much more.
