Radical Hairstyles at the BET Awards 2011

The 2011 BET Awards held last June was a successful concoction of outrageous fashion combined with the year’s greatest Hits, celebrities and superstars at Los Angeles, California. Equally as attention-grabbing as the designer garb and expensive jewellery are the hairdos the stars arrived in, from Alicia Key’s summer-suited fishtail braid to Willow Smith’s heart-shaped braided up-do. We have pored over the many ultra-cool hairstyles to compile the top three show stopping hairstyles at the 2011 BET Awards.
Mary J. Blige at the 2011 BET Awards

Mary J. Blige

Clad in a Marni Senafonte all-white skin tight jumpsuit paired up with a Giuseppe Zanotti gold belt clenched around her waist, Ms Blige strutted down the green carpet with a high blonde ponytail complete with thick straight bangs, a living legend proving that anyone can wear ponytail hair styles with style.

Mary J. Blige hair styles could once again be spotted on stage where the soulful diva performed a medley of her ‘90s hits including “Mary Jane” and “Real Love” before being joined by the legendary Anita Baker for a rendition of “Caught Up in the Rapture”.

Proving that ponytail hair styles are still ever much in vogue in Hollywood right now, Mary J. Blige hair styles added a punch of youthfulness to her soulful debut of “It Ain’t Over Til’ It’s Over” featuring DJ Khaled and Jadakiss.

Another up-and-coming diva who stood out among the sea of black hair styles walking the green carpet would be Grammy-nominated Keri Hilson who sported a Tibi purple top matched with a black strapless jumper, gold cuffs by Ann Taylor and an Adeler necklace. What really made the BET-nominated artist stand out though would be her sleek locks.

Keri Hilson hair styles include hair dyed light blonde complete with tip highlights. Keri Hilson hair styles layered cut lends edginess to the multiple award-winning diva’s fashion style. The long, jagged bangs included in the Keri Hilson hair style further highlights Ms Hilson’s gorgeous deep-set eyes and sharp facial features.

Nicky Minaj

26-year old phenomenal rapper Nicky Minaj toned down her fashion presentation and her Nicky Minaj hair styles by being one of the celebrities wearing black hair styles. Minaj paired a trendy bob haircut with a body hugging wine-coloured knit mini dress with neon pink detailing.

The Nicky Minaj hair styles would have been dangerously outdated or odd-looking on anyone else, but what Ms Minaj adds is a punk-vibe to the outfit, thanks to her attitude coupled with her signature pink pout.
