Queen Latifah couldn’t’ have looked more stunning as she graced this year’s red carpet at the 2017 BET Awards in Los Angeles, California. The actress wore a long black simple but chic dress and her hair was flawless. Her make-up was very light which gave her an impeccable look. Her sandy blonde hair was sleek, a look provided by celebrity hair stylist Ursula Stephen of Unilever Hair Expert who had this to say about the Queen’s look:
“This is one of Dana’s favorite looks! I knew pulling back one side of her hair would work well with the dress because it has the right amount of attitude this gown needed.” Here she gives 5 steps to achieving this magnificent hairstyle:
Step 2. Once I was finished shampooing her hair, I applied Suave Professionals Avocado + Olive Oil Smoothing Leave-In Conditioning Cream before blow drying her hair starting at the roots to ensure it’s extra smooth.
Step 3. I divided her hair into small sections and began to flat iron it.. Once I was finished, I made sure to spray Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Hairspray generously throughout her hair to help prevent frizz.
Step 4. To create her signature look, I parted her hair down the side and combed it back, securing it with an elastic and bobby pins.
Step 5. To finish, I went over the loose side again with the flat iron and pulled some pieces forward to enhance the frame of her face.
