The Braid Styles From The MTV Awards That You Can Recreate With These Products
The favorite natural hair products of celebrity hairstylists.
Braid styles showed up at the MTV Awards in so many forms, and we were here for it. From Yara Shahidi’s two fishtail braids to Issa Rae’s partial braid look, the styles were enviable. Most of them were also easy to replicate at home for an everyday look. Here were some of our favorite braid looks of the awards and the products used to create them.
These two fishtail braids were the perfect effortless style from hairstylists, Gabi Lopez and Samantha Robinson. They used Mizani True Texture hair products on Shahidi’s hair.
Hairstylist Yuichi Ishida did soft French braids on Jasmine Sander’s hair. The braids were pulled together with R+Co hair products for hold.

The genius behind Ross’ long braid is also the same hairstylist who does Alica Keys’ head of braids, Marcia Hamilton. The product line that Hamilton swears by for natural hair styles is KeraCare.
Most of Issa Rae’s award appearance looks have included braids, and they’ve yet to disappoint. Hairstylist, Felica Leatherwood, uses Auntie Jackie’s Flaxseed Elongating Curling Gel, Curls Blueberry Bliss Control Paste, Tamanu Oil from Be KeKoa, and an ion diffuser.
I spent three weeks saying I was gonna do a disco blue glittery eye on her and I’m pretty sure @issarae didn’t believe me till she saw me pulling the shadows out. All we ask is trust.
