Not only did Lizzo kick off the Grammy Awards with a powerful opening performance and scoop up three awards last night, she also stole the show on the red carpet. The “Truth Hurts” singer turned heads in her white Versace gown, fur stole, and dazzling jewels, but it was her gorgeous, Old Hollywood-inspired hairdo that caught our attention.

According to her hairstylist Shelbe Swain, Lizzo’s vintage waves were achieved by using the GHD Curve Curling Iron. After applying the Matrix Total Results Curl Please Contouring Lotion to help lock in curls and blow-drying her hair, Shelby then added the glamorous, long, loose curls with the professional-grade curling iron.

It’s easy to see why she would use the popular hair tool on such an important night. The one-inch curling iron uses ultra-zone technology to help create shiny, long-lasting curls. Along with a quick heat-up time, it also boasts an ergonomic lever and protective cool tip that not only help create consistent curls, but also make the hair tool comfortable and easy to hold while styling.

The curling iron features an automatic sleep mode that will shut off the iron after 30 minutes without use — so you never have to worry about leaving plugged in. And it has a universal voltage so you can use it in any country you travel to.

At $199, the curling iron is definitely an investment, but the fact that it can give you Lizzo-approved curls makes it well worth the cost. Shop one for yourself at
