It can be hard to locate specific hairstyle ideas on the Internet -- they're everywhere! So this helpful roundup is designed to save you some time. All of these celeb styles walked a red carpet at some point. Select based on the awards show, from the Grammys to the NAACP Awards, and everything in between!
Locs, Afros and braided twists fit right in with down-to-there ponytails and loose curls. This was a diverse showing, with Ledisi standing out in cherry-red locs that commanded attention! Jennifer Hudson and Gabrielle Union were among those keeping it sleek and simple with straight ponytails, while Mary J. Blige and Beyonce rocked the blonde hair like nobody else. If you're looking for something different, this is the gallery for you.
The looks at this awards show were full of flavor. Celebrities who sported short hairdos include Tracy Higgins (head-hugging and face-framing), Raven-Symone (newly shorn in a big way), Wendy Raquel Robinson (stunning as always) and Eva Marcille (simply beautiful). Of course, if long is more your style, there's no shortage of lengthy tresses, as worn by Keshia Knight Pulliam, Mya and many more.
The BET Awards are generally more laid-back and the creative hairstyles showcased here definitely reflect that! From braids on Jada Pinkett-Smith to Esperanza Spalding's dramatically long Natural, hairdos ran the gamut from short to long, and from straight to curly. Other celebs who represented include TLC's Chili, Ashanti, Ciara, Tatyana Ali, Cassie and Queen Latifah.
This was the year Cassie sported that one-sided shaved 'do that everyone was talking about. Other, less talked-about, but no less dramatic hairstyles were worn by Zoe Saldana, Keke Palmer and Amerie, to name a few. This gallery is all about long lengths, so if your hair is already lengthy, or you're looking for extension ideas, be sure to check this one out.
On the flip side of the long styles from this year are the short, chic cuts. Amber Rose wore what was arguably the hottest cut at the show, but Keri Hilson sported blonde-fringed curly bangs that were far from ordinary. Other ladies who rocked short snips include Estelle, Elise Neal and Wendy Raquel Robinson.
It was mostly long and straight, but at least Kim Fields shook it up with a bright frohawk that matched her dress. Chrisette Michele played it different with a stylish head wrap and no one could ignore Faith Evans in her sizzling red hair color. Who else was there with noteworthy hair? Try Janelle Monae and Keyshia Cole, for starters.
