What could be a better way to celebrate Grammy Awards weekend than with a rockstar blowout?! I stopped by the Grammy Pop-Up Beauty Bar at Cristophe Salon hosted by L'Oréal Professionnel Stylist Roy Teeluck for the most amazing blowout by stylist Mia Moore.

Last night the 2011 AMAs were held in Los Angeles, and though I love the musical performances, one my favorite things about award shows is checking out the fabulous fashion, makeup and hairstyles.
