BET Awards Hair Trend: Platinum Blonde Bobs

It seems as if the celebrities on the red carpet of the 2017 BET Awards were trying to figure out if blondes really do have more fun. Karrueche Tran, Blac Chyna, Cardi B and Tamar Braxton all showed up to Sunday night’s awards show rocking a platinum blonde blunt bob.

The bob cut is definitely a mane trend for summer 2017 as we’ve noticed countless other celebs sporting the cut in recent months. Specially, the long list of a-listers that rocked the style at last month’s Met Gala – from Selena Gomez’s silky bob to Kim Kardashian’s sleek take on the look, to the blonde wig that Donatella Versace requested that Kylie Jenner wear, the bob dominated the event. So it’s no surprise that Karrueche, Blac Chyna, Cardi B and Tamar Braxton all continued the trend at this year’s BET Awards.

As for the platinum blonde take on the cut?

The bright shade is a summer staple and these four ladies really brought the heat. Celeb hair stylist Tokyo Stylez was responsible for transforming Tran’s tresses as with the help of a platinum wig with tousled waves and side part. The stylist is known for his work with hair pieces and has created custom pieces for various stars like Kylie and Kendall Jenner and Nicki Minaj.

There are many other stylists who create amazing wigs such as Freedom Couture, Hair by Him, Chrissy Bales and A-List Hair.

Since lightening your hair is an intense process, it’s best to leave it to the pro’s but to achieve this trending hue, use Olaplex Hair Perfector three step treatment combined with L’Oreal Paris Feria Absolute Platinum and for maintenance Matrix Total Results Color Obsessed So Silver Shampoo and Balmain Hair’s Ash Toner leave-in treatment that protects and softens the hair and cuts out brassy and yellow tones.

2017 BET Awards Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The guys at the 2017 BET Awards were not to leave it to the girls for all the head-turning sartorial extravaganzas, as they delivered plenty of their own on Sunday (June 25) in LA.

Gucci Mane: Gucci Mane played the name game and donned a Gucci Fall 2016 sky-blue suit embellished with a sword-through-the-heart motif. A few layers of additional bling were to be expected with diamond cross pendants, rings, and bracelets. DJ Khaled’s baby son, Asahd, gave Gucci a run for his money though, as he wore a mini version of the same suit—sans bling—for the ultimate twinning moment.

French Montana: We’ve seen the pyjama trend on the red carpet, but French was all about the robe life in this Gucci Spring 2017 piece that was hyper-decorated in a bizarre fusion of Asiatic embroideries and Donald Duck. Presented over a white dress shirt, distressed denim and gold chains, it really did seem like he failed to remove his dressing gown before leaving home.

Demetrius Shipp Jr.: A fine vision in aubergine, Demetrius put the sillier sartorial statements to shame in this Ermenegildo Zegna monochromatic suit that he suavely styled with black slipper shoes.

2017 BET Awards Red Carpet Roundup

For better or worse, there were many more attention-stealing looks at the 2017 BET Awards in LA on Sunday night (June 25)—many of which garnered stares for all the wrong reasons.

Dascha Polanco: White-hot was the M.O. for the ‘Orange Is The New Black’ star in her Bishme R. Cromartie pantsuit. The plunge made it typically sexy, but that architectural ruffle was like fashion’s version of whipped cream on top.

Sasha Lane: The young starlet has not shied away from directional looks—or tribal makeup—and this Proenza Schouler Fall 2017 ensemble styled with a Sergio Rossi ‘SR1’ sandal and silver python Proenza Schouler ‘Curl’ clutch strongly continued in that experimental vein. Those who don’t love this look will likely only see trash bag-inspired pants. Regardless, I wish the sheer top had fit her better.

Tamar Braxton: To go with her platinum ’do, Tamar wore rhinestones and see-through lace in this Walter Mendez gown that won’t pass the test for those with sheer fatigue syndrome. Was anyone else getting a strong Cher vibe?

Justine Skye In The Blonds – 2017 BET Awards

Justine Skye made an arresting appearance at the 2017 BET Awards on Sunday (June 25) in LA.

The singer stood out in a dress from The Blonds Spring 2017 collection which I love for the contrasting gunmetal grey draped skirt against the softer luxurious silk bodice.

The futuristic feel of this dress is crying out for something more extreme like the icy blonde curls we saw on the runway, but Justine opted to braid her signature purple locks, allowing the Erickson Beamon gold and diamond earrings to add another dynamic twist.

Chloe Gosselin ‘Narcissus’ sandals provided the finishing touch.

Managing to be both glamorous and daring, this look was a winner for me. What do you make of it?
