The $21 Product Behind Kelsea Ballerini's Sleek Bun at the Grammys

Written by Jessica Harrington at


Kelsey Ballerini's 2023 Grammys beauty look deserves a spot on the best-dressed list. The "Heartfirst" singer arrived on the red carpet on Feb. 5 dressed in a stunning custom yellow gown by Prabal Gurung — but her glam, by celebrity hair and makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan, was the cherry on top.

"Over the last few days, Kelsea, her stylist Molly Dickson, and I sent back and forth some glam ideas and inspiration and collectively landed on sleek hair pulled off the face with a warm sunny monochromatic makeup look. Having the hair pulled back sleek allows the intricacy of the dress's neckline to be front and center," Deenihan tells POPSUGAR, referring to the crisscrossed halter top and embellished underwire straps of Ballerini's gown.
