Here's How Rihanna's Hair Stylist Created Her BET Awards Look

Rihanna made a surprise appearance at the 2019 BET Awards and rocked a half-up half-down hairdo!

The 31-year-old entertainer’s hair stylist Yusef, on behalf of Suave Professionals, is sharing the breakdown for how he created the look.

“For tonight’s look, Rihanna wanted to look very pretty. We were working with her beautiful burgundy hair, so I wanted to really feature the bold color and let it speak for itself!” Yusef said in a statement.

Here’s how to create the look:

  • 1. Start with Suave Professionals for Natural Hair Sulfate-Free Cleansing Shampoo and Suave Professionals for Natural Hair Moisturizing Curl Conditioner to cleanse and hydrate the hair ahead of styling.
  • 2. While the hair is damp, apply Suave Professionals for Natural Hair Define & Shine Serum Gel on strands, so that your blow dry will create a smooth finish.
  • 3. Blow dry hair using the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer Professional edition using the professional concentrator on medium heat and medium speed.

  • 4. Next, part hair from ear to ear, adding extensions of your choice for added body, volume and fullness to create that dreamy baby doll style.
  • 5. Use a 11/8 inch curling iron to create some texture, and lock in the style with Suave Professionals Firm Control Finishing Hairspray.
  • 6. Pull hair into a half up pony and tie!
  • Pro Tip: Detailing is key, so I went back and backcombed here, teased our the pony, and finished with one more spritz of Suave Professionals Firm Control Finishing Hairspray!
