It seems like I blink and the summer is halfway over. I get used to the heat and humidity. Nights spent enjoying the city become commonplace. The only thing that starts to get more difficult is my hair. Should I wear that signature style… again? And so I find myself on the hunt for new styles. This summer, I found inspiration by looking back at the 2017 BET awards, which had more than enough inspiration to last me through the rest of the season. I’ve handpicked my favorite looks from the 2017 BET awards to fit every summer occasion. Whether you want to wear your natural hair out all season or put it up in protective styles, I promise there’s a look for you.
Whether it’s your wedding or you’re attend as a guest, make Nomzamo Mbtatha’s updo your style of choice. The look is so classic that it will work with any dress. You might consider an off the shoulder or a lower back dress to add a little drama.
Marsai Martin’s hair is a refreshing take on box braids. The cornrow part in the center adds a touch of fun. You’ll be able to enjoy your beach adventures without any hair worries, and the protective style will help you get that much closer to your hair length goals.
By mid-summer, concert season is in full swing. I love the look of locs or faux locs to for a summer concert vibe. Pile them on top of your head in a free-falling bun or let them flow down your back. This style pairs well with a fashion-forward outfit, like the ones Chloe and Halle Bailey are wearing.
Summer nights call for the ultimate glow up. Rock an Issa Rae-style textured ponytail for a flirty look. Play around with the length of the ponytail to switch up the look over the course of the summer. Add a simple face and bold lip for maximum impact.
There's nothing more enjoyable than a summer cookout. I like to opt for a simple style that lets me focus on spending time with the people I care I about most. Logan Browning’s partially slicked back fro is the ideal amount of “I tried” without going too over the top.
Don’t forget that healthy hair is the foundation of every hair style. Stock up on Shedavi’s Hair + Scalp Growth Elixir and Hair Growth Vitamin to maximize your hair’s growth this summer. And drink plenty of water!
