The BET Awards saw a mix of stars hit the red carpet in elegant attire and hairstyles on Sunday (June 25). Among the celebrities to show off praise-worthy hairdos were Ice Spice and Latto, who opted for smooth straight strands and wavy voluminous hair. Their secret for hair perfection? Dyson’s Airstrait and Airwrap.
Before the award show began, both musicians prepared for the big night with their respective hair stylists. Ice Spice, with the help of celebrity hairstylist Kadijah Balde, went for a long, pin-straight hairdo that was achieved using a mix of the Dyson Airstrait and Airwrap, according to Balde.
“By using the new Dyson Airstrait straightener in dry mode at 285 degrees, I was able to straighten Ice Spice’s wig with no heat damage and achieve a sleek look without compromising the integrity of the hair,” Balde said in a statement. “Afterwards, I used a cool shot to lock in the straight look.”
For finishing touches, she ran the Dyson Airwrap through the “Princess Diana” singer’s hair to give it that fresh blowout look and shine.
“I then used … the firm smoothing brush attachment to brush and blow out her hair in order to proceed with additional straightening,” Balde added. “Dyson leaves the hair bone straight and very silky on my client.”
The finishing look was then posted the stylist’s Instagram account to show off the fresh, smooth strands.
Latto decided to debut waves full of volume and shine, which Dyson’s Airwrap was able to effortlessly achieve. Celebrity hairstylist Ashanti Lation helped her pull off this hairstyle using a couple attachments on the styling device.
“I used the Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler with the 1.6-inch long barrel attachment on a high heat and high airflow setting to create big, bold, beautiful blonde body waves, with minimal heat,” Lation explained in a statement. “I then used the Dyson Coanda Smoothing dryer attachment on high heat and high airflow to slick any flyaways for a polished final look.”
