In 2018, Eleni Foureira raised the level with her fierce hairography for “Fuego”, almost brushing the Altice Arena roof with her long hair flips. While the class of 2019 didn’t quite reach those lengths, they did deliver some iconic hair moments.

We’ve put together a list of some of our favourites from Eurovision 2019. Vote for your favourites — or let us know in the comments section if you think another act had better hair!

Kate Miller-Heidke’s golden crown

While Kate Miller-Heidke spent her performance atop a bendy pole, her hair was her crowning glory. Kate’s shoulder-length platinum blonde hair was styled in soft waves, topped off by an art-deco style crown of spikes and stars.

Mahmood’s fade

Look at that fade. Just look at it. Mahmood’s hair has obviously been styled by a skilled barber, someone who knows exactly how to use hair trimmers to brutal effect. The fade leads up to longer hair on top, including a dead-straight fringe that surely must have been cut using a level.

Sarah McTernan’s classic waves

Sarah brought a classic 1950s milkbar feeling to her staging and that was echoed with her hair. The “22” ‘do was classic blonde with gentle waves. The front of the hair pulled was back, but the rest cascaded down the Irish singer’s shoulders.

Paenda’s blue mood

Sometimes it’s good to take things in a different direction. Paenda had her hair styled in a chic short bob, but it was the colour that really stood out. Paenda rocked a moody medium-blue tone, which added to the subdued feeling of her song “Limits”.

Conan Osiris’s minimalist bun

The Portuguese artist has luxuriant long, dark locks but for his Eurovision performance, he wore his hair neatly tied back in a low bun. It all contributed to the tightly choreographed, avant-garde staging of “Telemóveis”, with the clip-on black face jewellery working with his dark hair.

Srbuk’s loose braids

We always expect good hair from Armenia and Srbuk didn’t let us down. She came to the Tel Aviv stage with roughly braided hair that ended as both plaited and loose hair. It brought an edgy feeling and added more power to the “Walking Out” performance.

Klemens from Hatari’s power mullet

The Icelandic anticapitalist techno group brought a lot visually to the stage for their performance of “Hatrið mun sigra”. But one stand-out element was Klemens’ mullet. The singer is known for changing his hair, and for Eurovision he bleached it blonde, shaved the sides and grew out the back into a shaggy mullet. In a night of so much styling, Klemens brought a strong anti-fashion statement.

Jonida Maliqi’s regal aesthetic

When Jonida won Festivali i Këngës back in 2018, her hair had been styled in a chic Cleopatra bob, with a heavy fringe. By the time Eurovision came along, she’d grown out the fringe but still channeled a regal aesthetic. Jonida wore her hair loosely pinned back, accented with gold jewellery.

Bilal Hassani’s glamour wig

Bilal Hassani was wearing a wig, but that’s not to say that a wig requires any less styling than natural hair. Bilal’s waist-length blonde wig — who he nicknamed Vivi — proved him with many moments of hairography in his “Roi” performance. Taking a cue from the lyrics, the wig was Bilal’s crown.

Nevena Božović’s tousled attitude

At any given Eurovision, you can be assured of seeing glamorous women with immaculately coiffed hair. But Nevena Božović did things differently. While she still brought glamour to the Tel Aviv stage, she was perhaps inspired by the rock flavour of her ballad and ensured that her wavy blonde hair had a tousled look to it. Who has time for flawless hair when you have an emotional ballad to deliver?

Victor Crone’s everything hair

Look, sometimes a dude just needs a cool rock haircut. Too short to be long and too long to be short, hints of a mullet without being all-out mullety, Victor had all his bases covered. It was neat enough to carry off his boy-next-door charm, but with a tiny bit of bad-boy attitude.

Tamta’s wet look

It might have seemed that Tamta couldn’t beat the hairography of Cyprus’ 2018 act Eleni Fouriera, but she gave it her best shot. Tamta’s blonde bob was put to work, with a wet look and plenty of opportunities to put the hair to work.

Serhat’s clean shave

When it comes to hair, sometimes less is more. In Serhat’s case, he wasn’t interested in messing around with toupees or combovers. He embraced the bald and shaved all his hair off, giving us his stylish, iconic look. Serhat isn’t totally hairless though — he lets his beard do the talking.

I really want Serhat to win this cause it’s the perfect example that we don’t win “hair” to look amazing. He rocks that baldness (along with Fred from Keiino)

Like: Nevena, Paenda, Jonida.
Dislike: Srbuk – some sort of cultural appropriation plus it looks messy. Sarah: a hairstyle as basic as it can get – basic bottle blonde with basic extensions.
Interesting: Kate’s crown.
Best of all: Serhat.

well, I don’t know how serious I should accept this poll, but if a little bit serious than Bilal & Tamta are using wig, Serhat has too much hair on this head), girls are girls Jonida, Sarah, Neveda, Kate- everybody have beautiful hair but a bit boring to choose one of them, so Victor and Mahmood are the most gentle styles, Paenda and Klemens the most modern, but my voice goes to Osiris – why? I adore him!

Klemens hair: It just a average emo/punk hair style. Like i seen that many times and yes my friend drag me this kind of area.
Bilals hair: Ehhh it okay i guess. oh wait is it a wig or not….?
Tamtas hair: Fuego hairstyle 0.5 but somehow fits well.

Serhats hair: THE BEST HAIR DESIGN HAND DOWN. Just simple nothing else just give the 1st place already.

I’m no hair specialist (I can hardly tell if it’s long or short), and we ain’t got any Jedward-style stand-out this year, but if I had to choose, I’d go for the blue. I generally don’t like dyed hair, but PAENDA just rocked this look. It’s fresh, cool, modest and simple yet powerful, wild and eye-catching. But don’t worry daddy Serhat, the second VMA Cruise Ship Award is waiting for you.

Bilal of course. But if to exclude his and Tamta’s wigs and Sarah’s hair extentions, and choose only between natural hair, then Paenda and Victor Crone.

I just really loved Nevena’s look!! Her hair, her dress, her jewellery, her makeup, her wonderful body and face and of course her amazing voice and song! I think I am in love guys!!!?
From men, I think Victor Crone had the best hair! I like this kind of rock 80s look.

I have to admit, the main thing I was thinking during Ireland’s performance was ‘My GOD her hair looks gorgeous!’. I know it’s extensions, but that just means I could legitimately have them on my own head.

Having said that, my Best Hair pick is Mahmood because…well, need I say more??

Serhat must win this poll, also SuRie 2018 had great hair. People must understand that long hair doesn’t mean best hair. Wonderful Sabrina (Audrey Hepburn says Hy!).
