All of Our Favorite Hairstyles from the 2022 BET Awards

06/27/2022

Last night, the very best of Black Hollywood brought some much-appreciated glamour, glitz,  and fun to Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater for the 2022 BET Awards. This year, Taraji P. Henson served as host for the annual event, which brings together some of our favorite stars to celebrate Black excellence in pop culture and entertainment. On the entertainment front, attendees were dazzled by star-studded performances from the likes of  Lizzo, Jack Harlow and Brandy, Latto and Mariah Carey, Chance the Rapper, and Chloe.

For us, the highlight of the show was no doubt seeing all the gorgeous hair that made an appearance on the red carpet. From high-energy ponytails to intricate braided styles, there were so many incredible hair looks that left us speechless.
