Cyndi Lauper's Hair and Makeup at the 2008 Grammys

Love It or Hate It? Cyndi Lauper's Grammys Look

Whoa, it looks like Cyndi Lauper might have the same hairdresser as Helena Bonham Carter. And while I love both ladies, that's not exactly a compliment. What's more, like Christina Aguilera, she's chosen the ol' red-lips-and-platinum-blonde combination—which isn't easy to pull off.

I applaud a 54-year-old woman who has decided to age gracefully; I just wish she would have been as graceful with her hair and makeup choices. What say you? Am I being too harsh?

hmmm, not too sure about the hair, though only Cyndi could pull that off, the lipstick makes her look too pale and her nack shows that she's had facial work done

This is the most flattering appearance I have ever seen Cyndi look! I love this look for her. She had a dress on that was age appropriate and was very flattering to her body. She got herself all made up and the curls were a nice touch. I love the glamor look... she looked alot better than Miley Cyrus who just look ridiculous.

She's definitely her own person and I don't mind the crazy bleached hair, it's better than the orange nonsense she had going on before this. I do think the red lipstick is too bold for her face.

eventhough i don't like that red of a lipstick with that hair color, i really wish i'll look like her when i'm 54, i already belong to the crazy not-a-trend follower gang :)

Like I said on Fab's poll, I love her, and even I hate the whole look I've voted undecided. And that's because the lady doesn't try to follow any trends, like many do and fail miserably, and that's worse in book...She's just being herself. In my opinion it's more important that your style represents who you are. Than to follow what other say it's cool, and you don't feel yourself in it. You'll just end up looking like 1000 other people on the street. So all my respect Cindy :)

Classic Cyndi, why change now? I like how confident she looks and the same for when she was presenting. The attitude of, if you don't like my look, f off!

It's very her, I agree! And for her, this being her style, I say yes. Could she look better? Of course! But again, it's Cyndi!!! ;) I dig the hair too and hey, girls just wanna have fun, right? :P

Age gracefully? I like her, but she's had plenty of work done. Look at the difference between her face and neck -- tell-tale sign of plastic surgery.
