    Jada Pinkett Smith showed off her flirty side with a head full of curls at the 2005 BET Awards. The carefree tresses beautifully framed the actress' face as she strutted down the red carpet in a fashion-forward evening gown featuring a bodice of strategically placed gold chains.

    Switching up from her signature short hairdo, Halle Berry looked summertime fine with her volumized curls that playfully rested on her shoulders. We especially loved how the auburn-colored style wonderfully paired with her burnt orange beach dress.

    The bigger the hair, the better! Elle Varner graced the 2013 BET Awards in a fashionable bodycon dress and freshly blown-out hair. The Refill singer never disappoints when it comes to displaying her natural hair, and we love it.

    There's nothing like a fabulous ‘fro moment. Afro-Latina singer Amara La Negra provided just that at the 2018 BET Awards. That year, the Love And Hip Hop: Miami star told BET Style that her gorgeous tresses are maintained by her loving and protective mom, Mami Ana. “My mother is the only person I allow to do my hair,” the former pageant girl proclaimed. So sweet!

  5. 2019: Blac Chyna

    One of our favorite Blac Chyna beauty moments is undoubtedly her sky-high platinum blonde beehive that commanded attention at the 2019 BET Awards. The reality star's elaborate updo proved to be the perfect look to accompany her bright red gown that featured ruby sequins, a seductively high slit, and a plunging neckline.
