She didn’t have a single hair out of place.
Queen Latifah is one of those people who masters a look and sticks with it. In general, the better the hair care routine, the more flawless the look—and the products used to style Latifah’s hair last night came from the drugstore! We spoke with Unilever Celebrity Hairstylist Ursula Stephen about the process to get the actress and rapper ready for the BET Awards. You can recreate the entire routine for less than $20.
Here are the products that she used:
Dove Nutritive SolutionsIntensive Repair Shampoo
“The key here is to start with clean hair,” Stephen explained. “I started by using Dove Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner to protect her hair from any heat damage.”
Dove Intensive RepairNutritive Solutions Conditioner
Suave Professionals Leave-In Avocado + Olive Oil Conditioning Cream
“Once I was finished shampooing her hair, I applied Suave Professionals Avocado+ Olive Oil Smoothing Leave-In Conditioner Conditioning Cream before blow drying her hair, starting at the roots to ensure it’s extra smooth,” the celeb stylist continued.
Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Firm Control Smooth Anti-Humidity Hairspray
“Next, I divided her hair into small sections and began to flat iron it. Once I was finished, I made sure to spray Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Hairspray generously throughout her hair to prevent any frizz,” Stephen said.
Once all that was done, “To create Latifah’s signature look, I parted down the side and combed it back, securing it with an elastic and bobby pins,” said Stephen.
