Get the Look: Lupita Nyong’o’s Natural Locks

See also

At tonight's Golden Globe Awards, all eyes were on the A-list to check out fashion and beauty hits and misses. Hitting it out of the park was newcomer Lupita Nyong’o, proving that her style sense help up to her acting chops (note: if you haven't seen 12 Years a Slave, do so immediately).

All eyes were on her stunning Ralph Lauren gown, perfectly offset by her natural look. For tips on how to replicate we turned to the man behind her lusted-after locks, celebrity hairstylist Larry Sims.

Larry started Lupita’s glam look by liberally applying Smooth ‘N Shine Go Pro Curls Curl-Licious Mist to refresh and reactivate her natural curls.

Next, Larry used a rat tail comb to insert a dramatic deep side part on the right side of her head. He then took the part back to the crown of Lupita’s head and combed her hair to each side.

After the dramatic part was put in place, Larry then used Smooth ‘N Shine Go Pro Curls Butter Bouncin’ to hydrate Lupita’s hair to give it an easy moldable texture.

For a finishing touch, Larry used got2b 2sexy voluptuous volume hairspray to keep her tresses in place through a long night of Golden Globe after parties. Our only question - can we tag along?
