BET Awards 2022: See The Most Swoon-Worthy Beauty Looks

We’re truly celebrating Black excellence.


There was no shortage of starry statement looks at last night’s BET Awards. As always, dramatic fashion spewed the red carpet (see Coi Leray’s full denim fit courtesy of Alexander Wang). But it was the boundary-pushing beauty moments - some as whimsical as the dresses, others an understated finishing touch - that hit home. 

As soon as Lizzo stepped out in a 1920s-inspired finger wave mullet and baby curls to match, she set a characteristically glamorous tone for the night. Following her maximalist approach, Janelle Monáe subversively wrapped her high bun with a black cord - and while flipping off the US Supreme Court no less. 

Other celebrities opted for timeless glam, like Victoria Monet with her sultry nudish-brown lip and sleekly graduated top knot, or host Taraji P. Henson, whose 45-inch ponytail was characterized by a deep side part and ultra-low placement.

Ahead, the most swoon-worthy hair and makeup from the BET Awards 2022.
