2021 Soul Train Awards: Sexy Ponytails And Sultry Updos On The Red Carpet

We’re taking inspiration for our next salon appointment.

When we spoke to celebrity hairstylist Naeemah Johnson about the hair trends to expect at the 2021 Soul Train Awards, she told us to expect curtain bangs. Well, guess what? She was right!

On the red carpet of the star-studded event, a good majority of our favorite stars also opted for sexy ponytails and sultry updos for the big night. Co-host Tisha Campbell even rocked the trendy looks on the red carpet with beautiful face-framing curls.

If you ask us, a classic ponytail or updo can be sleek and sexy, especially when they’re done right. And these ladies provide it! Below, see the beauties that exuded sophistication on the step-and-repeat.
