Lupita Nyong’o is known for her stunning lipstick looks, but for her first time walking the red carpet at the Oscars this year, she decided to make a different statement—this time with her hair.
The thin, gold Fred Leighton headband matched perfectly with her sparkly earrings. Hairstylist Larry Sims first used a quarter-sized amount of Smooth N Shine Go Pro Curls Gelle Parfait ($14.99, smoothnshine.com) on Lupita’s damp hair and then diffused her hair to create a fine curl and texture. After smoothing her hairline with a creamy oil, he pushed her hair back with the diamond headband and shaped the crown of her head around the accessory.
By keeping her lips neutral and makeup fresh, her pretty accessories really get to shine. We’re in love with the way she proves women with short hair can wear so many versatile styles!
