Do’s that wowed at the BET Awards

Ravyn Lenae @ravynlenae

Hands down the style that totally slayed the red carpet at the recent BET Awards in Los Angeles was seen on R&B singer/songwriter Ravyn Lenae, whose cherry cola-coloured dreadlocks were arranged in a pretzel-styled half updo. This imaginative creation was a collaboration between @malcolm.marquez and @ambitiouscurl.

Hosted by the Black Entertainment Television network, the BET Awards is an annual event held to celebrate black entertainers and other minorities in music, film, sports and philanthropy.

Muni Long @munilong

Going for a more staid style was musician Muni Long, who looked beautiful with long tight curls parted in the centre.

Ice Spice @icespice

Rapper Ice Spice certainly had one of the most interesting colours of the night – her long straight ginger locks skimmed her waist, with gelled edges at the temples.

Victoria Monét @victoriamoney

Songwriter and singer Victoria Monét had her ombre blonde hair styled by @iamdavontae, with goddess braids by @brysonkarter to effect a mermaidcore look.

Doechii @doechii

Singer and rapper Doechii chose to wear a super short pixie style, razor cut and brushed forward, a look that almost channelled Halle Berry circa the 1990s.

Coco Jones @jaystayready

Styled by @jaystayready, Coco Jones rocked a very smart updo with two long wisps on either side of the face.

JT @hairassasin

Going for all-out, old style Hollywood glam was actress and composer, JT, with long, cascading curls, festooned by a pretty chiffon bow serving as an Alice band.

Akira Akbar @akira_akbar

Actress and model Akira Akbar was all about elegance – an impeccably groomed blunt cut lob with middle parting perfectly complimented her pretty gown.

Bonnie Mbuli @bonniembuli

Iconic South African actress Bonnie Mbuli graced the BET red carpet in a spectacular pink gown and brush cut natural hair.

Uncle Waffles @unclewaffles

The strangely named DJ, Uncle Waffles, rocked a sophisticated low chignon, with a deep curved side part and gelled edges around the ears for a new take on a traditional style. (Report by Natasha Chisese and Joanna Sterkowicz)
