When we saw Lupita Nyong’o on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, we couldn’t help but state at her awesome-ness. How beautiful was her perfectly styled hair? We were so psyched we caught up with celebrity hairstylist, Larry Sims to learn the products he used to get her look. “I was inspired by her heritage and the natural rocker girl, beautiful texture of her hair,” says Larry. “I was also inspired by the modern lines of her dress – which inspired the side part.”
Yeah, we’re inspired by her too. Not only did she score the nomination for Best Supporting Actress for “12 Years A Slave”, but she also just graduated from Yale. Super dope! Jump the page to get her look!
1. First, Larry started Lupita’s glam look by liberally applying Smooth ‘N Shine Go Pro Curls Curl-Licious Mist ($9.99) to refresh and reactivate her natural curls.
2. 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.
3. After the dramatic part was put in place, Larry then used Smooth ‘N Shine Go Pro Curls Butter Bouncin’ ($12.69) to hydrate Lupita’s hair to give it an easy moldable texture.
4. For a finishing touch, Larry used got2b 2sexy voluptuous volume hairspray ($5.99) to keep her tresses in place through a long night of Golden Globe after parties.
