2011 BET Awards Hairstyle Trends

Posted by Rosa Patriller on Wed, Jun 29th, 2011
The 2011 BET Awards went down at the Shrine Auditorium in sunny LA on June 26. Apart from the wonderful music and performance, we were strongly impressed by how fresh, fab and fun the stars' hairstyles looked on the green carpet, which furnished us with great inspirations for a new, upgrading 'do. Let's take a closer look at the hairstyle trends set by the amazing event.

Keeping it simple

Keeping things simple and fresh is a trend seen in numerous hairstyles on the red carpet of 2011 BET Awards, from short bobs to long waves. Nicki Minaj led this trend by opting for a classic black bob, discarding her usual outrageous red carpet hairstyles - we were utterly but pleasantly surprised! This sleek, smooth bob haircut with blunt bangs keeps her whole look clean and fresh. Kerry Washington rocked a most easy-to-make low ponytail, pulling back all her sleek locks to showcase her glowing skin. She looked like a goddess pairing with her gorgeous column gown. Michelle Williams, also favoring simplicity, wore soft waves cascading down her shoulders - a sweet and effortless trend that has been running all along this summer.

Adding things up

On the red carpet of 2011 BET Awards, we are excited to see a myriad of fun ways to upgrade a plain style and make it stand out instantly. Sporting a soft blonde bob, Keri Hilson left out a few longer strands to graze her collarbone and chest, making this style a most unique and unforgettable one of the night. Meagan Good wowed with a short new 'do with long, side sweeping fringe on one side and edgy undercut on the other, looking chic, funky with amazing glamor. Eve turned heads by creating voluminous 50's styled bang to go with a long side braid. Clearly it only needs slight effort and creativity to bring an ordinary hairstyle to a new level.

Bringing out all sophistication

Elegance and sophistication never fade out as the most appreciated quality of a woman and there are many different ways to bring them out. Nia Long went for a most classic way, swept back her dark locks and created a big, sleek, high chignon. Kelly Rowland, loosely updoing her soft, glossy strands at the back, left out lash-tickling bangs for a face-framing effect, looking both graceful and luscious. Ashanti wore side swept curls in beautiful shapes with plenty volume at the crown, which is even elegant and romantic enough for a wedding!
