Singer Halsey showed up to the 2019 Video Music Awards with rainbow roots. Think: an elevated approach to red carpet-worthy rainbow hair. But, honestly, are you even surprised? The New Jersey-born songwriter has been a hair chameleon since the start of her career. Name a color, chances are she's worn it on her head. Red, blonde, pink, platinum, teal...the list goes on. Tonight, she decided to combine all colors of the rainbow into one, and it's a lewk.

She paired her vibrantly-streaked middle part with sleek, jet-black hair teased at the ends. Her hair was mastered by oh-so-talented celebrity hairstylist Florido using GHD styling products and Dove Hair products. "The rainbow part was Halsey’s idea," Florido mentioned in a statement. "She loves to stand out and switch things up. I made sure to give her a simpler hairstyle to showcase the part and make sure the rainbow was the star of the show.”

I'm obsessed with how glossy her hair texture is. Florido used a bunch of Dove Style+Care Compressed Micro Mist Extra Hold Hairspray ($5) to maintain the texture and hold. I know we're all stunned by her hair, but I can't not point out the fact that her apricot blush, which is swept-up to her temples, so beautifully matches her dress. Surprise! Celebrity makeup artist Denika Bedrossian used COVERGIRL Full Spectrum Color Idol Lipstick in Hustle ($10) to nail this blush.

This isn't the first time Halsey has worn rainbow hair this year though. Back in July she pulled off rainbow blunt bangs.

Basically, Halsey is a rainbow hair queen, and no color is safe.
