Taylor Swift Shows Off Straight Hair at AMAs: Love It or Hate It?

Taylor Swift caused more than a few double-takes when she stepped onto the red carpet last night at the American Music Awards debuting a dramatic new hairstyle. Looking more supermodel than country singer, she showed off some fabulous new fringe with her usually curly tresses replaced by straight and sleek. The singer, who picked up the best female country artist award, complemented her new sophisticated style with a sparkly mini dress before pulling her hair back into a sleek ponytail for her performance. And while we’re not used to seeing Taylor without her signature cute curls, we’re loving this chic new style. Tell us: What do you think of Taylor’s new style? Do you prefer her hair curly or straight?

she looks amazing

Kimberly on

I think it makes her look more mature. I LOVE the look. (Also, without her RED/Bright lipstick, she looks much better).

Responding to JE’s post. This MIGHT be a wig/weave, but my hair is just as curly and I straighten it and it looks great.

I’m not a big fan but, GO TAYLOR.

Best I’ve seen her look!

She looks great. The look is very sophisticated. Her live performance voice is horrible. If she were an AI contestant – she’d be crucified. I’ve never seen a live performance where she didn’t either forget her own words or sing out of key/time – or both. She’s a great songwriter and studio performer for sure…

Love the new look….she looks so mature with it!

Tamara on

I didn’t initially recognize her either, but she seriously stepped up her game. She’s a cute girl, but here she looks sophisticated and gorgeous!

She looks much more sophisticated and grown-up with the new do! Love it, hate the fairy-tale curls.

Alicia on

Taylor looked amazing!! She looked so grown up and mature! I love the straight hair and I think she should keep up with the style! :)

I had to do a double take. This girl is beautiful no matter the hair style. I do love the lighter lip color….ruby red is not for Taylor! You are beautiful.

The new look is definitely better but it certainly can’t make her sound better. I was not surprised by her bad performance I’ve never seen her sing well live.
