The finger-wave mullet Lizzo wore on the BET Awards red carpet secured the singer a spot on the list of the night’s best beauty moments. The hairstyle was an ’80s dream featuring finger waves at the front, and a mullet in the back. One of the best parts of the look? The exaggerated baby hairs swirled to perfection and framed her face.
Mullets have been making a comeback, with other celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Halsey, and Billie Eilish spotted with the style. Though the mullet may be divisive, modern iterations of the trend feel effortlessly cool, so don’t be intimidated if you want to give the look a try for yourself. “This haircut is for someone who is confident, who steps outside the box, and whose style is on the edgier side,” celebrity hairstylist and co-founder of Nine Zero One salon Riawna Capri previously told POPSUGAR. “Ultimately, when you’re wearing a unique hairstyle or piece of clothing, if you have the confidence to rock it and be different, everyone else will love it, too.”
Lizzo has become known for her trendy, avant-garde hairstyles courtesy of her long-standing relationship with hairstylist Shelby Swain, who is behind many of Lizzo’s most popular looks. Swain was again behind this finger-wave mullet. She used the Dove Amplified Textures and Dove Hair Therapy collections for the occasion. Take a closer look at Lizzo’s hairstyle below.
