Hairdos rock Billboard Music Awards

Slicked back styles, sculpted baby hairs, top knots and high ponytails dominated the Billboard Music Awards, held recently in Los Angeles.


One star who did not fit the above hair profile was Colombian singer-songwriter, Karol G, who evoked memories of Kylie Jenner’s famous forays into brightly coloured hairstyles, with her dazzling aquamarine long locks and conspicuously black roots.


TikTok star and presenter, Dixie D’Amelio, had a very high and intricately twisted top knot, only noticeable once you registered her dramatic, Cleopatra-like eye make-up.

Rapper Doja Cat had one of the more intriguing styles of the night – a triple-braided ponytail look, with sculpted baby hairs framing the face. In contrast, movie star Priyanka Chopra wore a simple but equally splendid look – waist-length, ultra-straight, ultra-thick and ultra-smooth, centre-parted hair.


Rapper Saweetie sported long blonde locks pulled back into a high ponytail, while country star, Gabby Barrett, also had her beachy-toned hair in a bun that teetered on the top of her head, but with a parted fringe that skimmed her collar bones.


Actress Gabrielle Union had one of the cutest looks of the night – a glamorous, very high ponytail with flipped edges.


Singer/songwriter H.E.R. opted for side-slicked, scraped back hair (with a sculpted tendril on one side of the forehead), secured by a super-long ponytail. Fellow singer/songwriter, Kehlani, had a long sweep of loose, mildly wavy, jet black hair cascading down each side.


Music legend Alicia Keys doesn’t require much to enhance her naturally beautiful face but opted for an intricately braided updo and curled tendrils on either side to complement her natural make-up look.


The awesome Pink can always be relied on to sport a funky, short platinum blonde do and the Billboard Awards event was no exception. She had a cacophony of large curls atop short back & sides.
