Lupita Nyong’o was in a league of her own last night at the 2014 Academy Awards. From her ethereal Prada gown to her heartfelt acceptance speech to her flawless hair. You can pick your jaw up off the floor now because we have the answer to the question we’ve all been asking ourselves “How does she do it.” Or at least, how does she do her hair. Lupita’s hairstylist Larry Sims shared how he styled the Oscar winner’s hair for the big night!
And if you don’t happen to have a Fred Leighton diamond headband laying around, that’s ok. A regular headband can do the job just as well. Once you’ve mastered the hairstyle, all we need is a paper version of Lupita’s dress from the 4-year old fashion prodigy and we’ll be set!
Larry started Lupita’s look by applying a quarter-size amount of Smooth ‘N Shine Go Pro Curls Gelle Parfait on Lupita’s damp hair, and then diffused her hair to create a fine curl and texture.
Larry then used Smooth ‘N Shine Go Pro Gro Crème Oil to smooth out the front of Lupita’s hairline. He also applied the Crème Oil on the sides of her head to give her hair a smooth and shiny finish.
After her hairline was smoothed, Larry then pushed back Lupita’s hair with a diamond Fred Leighton headband. He then shaped the crown of her hair around the dazzling tiara.
Larry completed Lupita’s look with göt2b rise and shine luminous lift hairspray for extra flexibility with an added glossy hold that will keep her locks in place throughout a night of star studded after parties.
