Tonight's airing of Black Girls Rock on BET was awesome, and I was especially loving the natural hair and textured styles from the show! The original taping of the show was August 5, 2017 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) in Newark, NJ.  Here are 5 of my favorite  natural and textured styles from Black Girl Rocks in no particular order:

1. Taraji P. Henson's Tapered Cut

 I loved Taraji's new tapered cut and color! It looks good on her. I also like how they showed a couple of her hairstyles from back in the day including the asymmetrical and "side-swept bang." I cracked up when Taraji said the asymmetrical style showed off her architectural side! She did a great job as the host!

2. India. Arie's Flowered Fro

I know I wasn't the only one who was super happy that India.Arie wore her Afro to Black Girls Rock! She's been wearing headwraps and that's cool, but I was screaming, "Yasss" at the TV when she came out! Loved it!

  3. Ledisi's Dreads in a Mohawk

Let me start off by saying the Ledisi is such a performer! She puts on some of the best shows. If I ever decide to get locs, I pray that mine is half as fly as hers! I was loving her twisted loc mohawk style!

4. Yara Shahidi's Curls

I am so proud of Yara Shahidi and all she has accomplished! She will be attending Harvard in the Fall! Plus, she always comes through with beautiful natural hairstyles!

  5. Rutina Wesley with Dreads and Loc Jewelry

 I really liked Queen Sugar's Rutina Wesley's loc style on her. Her hair was in a ponytail with one braid decorated with loc jewelry going down each side.

There were so many more hairstyles I liked from the show. I loved Solange's big curly hair! The entire Black Girls Rock event was too cool!
