The Best Hairstyles from the 2022 Billboard Music Awards

05/16/2022

As much as the Billboard Music Awards is about celebrating the biggest hits in music, the popular, fan-voted awards show is always guaranteed to be a stylish affair—and that was certainly the case this year. Diddy hosted the star-studded ceremony which saw Mary J. Blige honored with the much-deserved Icon award as well as many epic performances from the likes of Megan Thee Stallion, Miranda Lambert, Florence + the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Travis Scott.   

Of course, for us, the highlight of the show was seeing all of the gorgeous hair hit the red carpet. From soft waves to statement-making ponytails, our favorite stars and their glam teams served up major hair inspiration.

Ahead, see some of our favorite hairstyles from the 2022 Billboard Music Awards.

Megan Fox

Doja Cat

Doja Cat looked stylish as ever with her slicked-back high pony and laid edges that were styled by Jared “JStayReady” Henderson. To create this look, Henderson began by prepping Doja’s hair with OGX Extra Strength Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo & Conditioner to give the hair lots of shine and smoothness for the sleek look we planned. He used the OGX Protecting + Silk Blowout Quick Drying Thermal Spray on wet hair to protect and smooth strands before heat styling. Next, he blow dried her hair smooth with the ghd Helios Hairdryer.

When the hair was dry, Henderson with the ghd Platinum+ Styler, creating a super sleek finish and pulled it into a high ponytail. I sprayed her hair with OGX Smoothing + Shea Sleek Humidity Blocking Hair Spray to nix any flyaways and frizz. Next, he curled the ends of her ponytail with the ghd CURVE Soft Curl Iron to give the ends that 90’s flip.

Finally, he used the OGX Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Weightless Healing Dry Oil to give the hair a super high-gloss finish and added more OGX Smoothing + Shea Sleek Humidity Blocking Hair Spray to ensure everything would stay in place.
