Need a hairstyle that looks ultra-glam, but only takes a few minutes? Take a page from a few of the celebs at the 2014 MTV VMAs.

Some of the biggest stars at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards had something in common... their sleek, slicked-back hairstyles! Rita Ora, Jessie J, Iggy Azalea and Ariana Grande all put their own spins on the sexy look.

Break out the flat irons, 'cause you're going to want to copy these looks pronto.

"Black Widow" singer Rita Ora paired her sexy red satin dress with slicked-back platinum blond strands. Copying the look is simple: Just add gel or mousse to dirty strands and brush back. Instant glamour.

Ora's "Black Widow" partner, Iggy Azalea, opted to go with a similar look — right down to the platinum.

We like how the Australian rapper added some extra volume to hers at the crown. Simply add some strategically-placed bobby pins to add the extra oomph on your strands.

Ariana Grande went with a high ponytail with slicked-backed sides. The petite dynamo is turning the high pony into her trademark look.
