This Was The Most Popular Hairstyle At The Billboard Awards

Red carpet hairstyle trends don’t change that much from season to season. Romanic updos, bouncy curls, and textured waves will always be in attendance, and we assumed that the latter would rule the Billboard Music Awards tonight. But we’re here to eat our words, because this year’s red carpet was full of the complete opposite: Sleek, pin-straight bobs and lobs on everyone from J.Lo to Dua Lipa.

The best part? Sleek hair only seems hard to pull off. In reality, the style doesn’t require much more than a trusty flat iron (if you don’t have pin-straight hair already) and a healthy dose of shine serum or pomade. Need some inspiration? Check out our favorite bobs and lobs from this year’s BBMAs.

For tonight’s awards Jenna Dewan walked the carpet rocking a stick-straight hairdo. Looking to get a cut like Dewan’s? As your stylist for a blunt bob that hits just below your chin.

Author, model, and host Padma Lakshmi stepped out in a pin-straight lob. Cop the look by running your favorite straightener through sectioned hair, then following up with a dose of shine serum (we love this one).

Billboard Music Awards host Kelly Clarkson let her structured gown take center stage by keeping her hair straight with a defined center part.

Jennifer Lopez has embraced dozens of different hair trends over the years, from sleek updos to billowy extensions. At this year’s BBMAs though, she kept things simple with a straight lob. But in true J.Lo fashion, she added a little extra flare by messing up her mid-lengths and ends. Do the same with some texturizing spray or pomade.
