One of the biggest nights in entertainment is the BET Awards happening this year in Los Angeles. Also known as the ultimate celebration of #BlackGirlMagic and #BlackBoyJoy. My friends and I are huddled around my big-screen TV as I type awaiting the stunning hair and makeup looks to step onto the red carpet that'll spark conversation. We're so excited for all the performances—particularly Ella Mai, Migos, Miguel, and more. Stunning natural styles and bold makeup looks ruled the red carpet. Ahead are the most showstopping looks that stole the show.
Amber Rose is channeling Old Hollywood glamour with her platinum, soft waves.
Blac Chyna rocked a cropped haircut with perfectly styled finger waves with an equally gorgeous retro blue eye shadow.
Re-create this retro blue eye look with one swipe of this shimmery blue pigment.
Yes to this bold, elongated eyeliner on Logan Browning.
Actress Serayah McNeill wore this silver chin-length bob so well paired with lightly tousled waves.
Singer Ella Mai is striking with her glowy, sunkissed skin and this high-shine wine lip. This baby hair, though.
Actress Storm Reid in Bantu knots is what you call black excellence at its best.
This sleek, bone-straight lob is everything on Tika Sumpter.
Actress Erica Ash in these Fulani braids is a beautiful nod to traditional cornrows.
Of course, Janelle Monáe shows up stunning in this vibrant red lip and trucker hat.
Tyra Banks' ash blonde A-line bob is such a vibe.
We want to know exactly which nude lipstick Ashanti is wearing.
In the meantime, we'll opt for this pinky nude option from bareMinerals.
Beyoncé's protégée sisters, Chloe and Halle, are visions—their styled dreadlocks are drop-dead gorgeous.
If you're looking for a protective style, try long and luscious faux locs like Jasmin Brown and adorn them with gold hair cuffs.
