On the night of  June 30, 2013 some of the top stars in black entertainment showed up and showed out at the 2013 BET Awards Show. Showing off their various unique styles we couldn’t help but notice the beautiful natural hairstyles that graced the carpet.

Below is a  list of some celebrity hairstyles that caught the eye. Want to achieve some of these hairstyles?  Well we’ve got a few tips, and if those don’t help be sure to go check out some Youtubers who’ve posted similar looks.


Elle Varner


Who doesn’t love Elle Varner’s big  and curly locs?  She’s known for rocking her signature big look and seemed to do nothing much different with it for the awards show. For those wanting to achieve this look you can possibly get this from two ways: blow out or weave.


Janelle Monae

Also known for her signature style, the pompadour , Miss Janelle Monae showed up with a slightly different look at the awards show. Still an updo hairstyle, Janelle added a slight pinned down curl which  still created a chic and beautiful look.




Although Ashanti might not be a natural hair celebrity icon I have to admit that her hairstyle was quite cute. I love the  large side bun. This look can be achieved by slicking your hair up into a high, side bun. Is your hair not long enough? Just add some hair extensions or purchase a faux bun to clip at the top.

Erykah Badu

Last but not least who doesn’t love them some Miss Badu? Erykah Badu has been following her own trends for the longest. What I loved most at tonight’s show was her look when performing with the talented Kendrick Lamar.  Many naturalistas find it hard to rock a hat with their big fro. Miss Badu managed to pull it off effortlessly.


Also at earlier BET Awards festivities this weekend both Erykah and Janelle rocked hats.

Usually the easiest way to get your ‘fro into a hat is by braiding, twisting, or pinning it down.
