From Ciara's blunt fringe to Jessica Alba's creative top knot, these are the best hair and make-up looks from the Billboard Awards 2016
Theres something about a music awards red carpet. Each year we wait with baited breath to see who will be most creative with their look and who will completely unleash their wild side – and the Billboard Music Awards 2016 were no different. And like every year before it, this one didnt disappoint, showcasing amazing top knots, fabulous fringes, graphic lids and matching lipstick and eyeshadow.
Setting the stakes high was Ciara, who proved that an hour in the stylists chair isnt needed to look effortlessly chic. Her long hair was simply pulled back into a chic loop-knot, allowing her heavy bangs to take centre stage creating the perfect face-framing tendrils to show off her glowing complexion and subtle smokey eyes.
Zendaya, meanwhile, stepped out with a super sleek style (she recently rocked an ace bowl cut at the Met Gala), complemented by soft pink, tonal make-up to suit her dusty pink two-piece ensemble, while Keke Palmer totally blew us away, managing to pull off the sexy latex look on the red carpet and combined two favourite looks of the night a top knot and blunt fringe teaming her partly shaved do with a plum lipstick and matching eyeshadow.
Also on the scene was the ever beautiful, Mila Kunis, who proved that a little bit of eye shadow can go a long way, adding a touch of metallic lilac to her lids for a soft-yet-modern look and Jessica Alba, who left her staple romantic make-up and do at home, unleashing her inner rock chick with a sharp top knot and royal blue graphic eye all balanced perfectly with a delicate ear cuff.
