While this year's Grammy red carpet skewed towards the tamer side (we've never missed Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and Rihanna so much!), the awards show hit us with a huge surprise in the first 15 minutes: Lorde's straight hair. Yes, Lorde—she of big, beautiful, all-you-can-look-at curls—has straight hair now.

Of course, it's also totally possible the New Zealand singer's new look is only temporary, and will return to her gorgeous ringlets the moment she takes a shower tonight. Either way, though, we have to give the girl props for having the courage to switch up her look. Hairstylist Jen Atkin sprayed Sachajuan's Ocean Mist ($28, to enhance Lorde's naturalhair texture before creating the perfect blowout. Then with the help of a flat iron, she smoothed out her hair and added a tiny bit of Oribe's Fiber Groom ($29, to tousle the ends.

After all, what better place to introduce a new look than the Grammys? Check out a side-by-side of both looks below, and let us know which hair you prefer Lorde with!
