Last night’s BET Awards was definitely one for the books! The show-stopping performances, celebrity appearances, multiple surprises, and red-carpet looks were enough to keep our Twitter fingers busy all night long as we swooned over the abundance of Black beauty gracing our TV screens.

As the show’s host last night, it was Taraji P. Henson who showed up and showed out, dazzling us each time she stepped on the screen. While each look made a statement of its own – from her first red carpet appearance until the very last look of the night – it was her hair switch-ups that gave us hair envy and had us wanting more.

Lucikly for us, celeb stylist, Tym Wallace, shared exactly how he achieved each of Taraji’s stunning red-carpet-ready hairstyles with these simple steps! Check out each look below.
