The BET awards are always guaranteed to provide great musical acts and a few laughs, but it’s more than that. It’s our opportunity to see a red carpet filled with melanin and looks to inspire our own summer glow ups. Whatever this summer has for you, be it barbeques or beach trips, day parties or date nights, we want you to look and feel your best. Here are the BET award looks that we’ll emulate this summer.
Got a beach vacation in your summer plans? Take a page from Erica Ash’s book. The intracy of her braided look is nothing short of regal, and the beads only add to the look. It’s a perfect low maintence style that still looks like you came to slay. Don’t forget to pack your Hair + Scalp Growth Elixir to keep your scalp healthy and happy in this style.
Jessie Reyez’ outfit is the perfect combination between effortlessness and intentionality. An oversized jersey with killer heels is an accessible look, and her strategically tousled topknot is cool girl chic. To pull off the look on your own, make sure your tresses are moisturized. Deep condition with our CROWNED Protein Masque before you style your bun because a dry bun is not a good look for anyone.
For an evening out, we appreciate Keyshia Ka’Oir’s interpretation of a traditional high bun. The braids add texture and an element fun so that you’re dressed up but not stuffy. Just because your hair is up doesn’t mean that you can’t let your hair down!
For a music festival, look to Amara la Negra’s full fro for inspiration. Do a twist or braid out to get a similar amount of body, and don’t be afraid to supplement with extra hair.
Storm Reid’s bantu knots are a versatile summer look. Once again, moisturized locks are key. Use our CROWNED cowash before styling your hair to increase moisture levels in your hair and to add shine.
