Yara Shahidi served up nothing but hair greatness last night at the 24th annual SAG Awards. She stunned as usual on the red carpet in a chic tuxedo jumpsuit, but it was her hair that left us swooning. The Grown-ish beauty gave us all sorts of Diana Ross vibes in one of the rare moments we’ve seen her let down her natural tresses for the red carpet.

The key to winning a natural leave out like this is all about the moisture! Her stylist Nai’vasha Johnson used products from natural hair care brand Taliah Waajid, including Green Apple and Aloe Nutrition Leave-In Conditioner and Curly Curl Cream to moisturize and shine the actress’ hair.

Nai’vasha shared her product arsenal on Instagram, including a diffuser which is a must-have for playing up natural textures. If you’re looking at recreating the look at home, we recommend using the dryer on medium heat with minimal manipulation to effectively dry hair without frizzing it out and maintaining your natural curl pattern.

Bonus: Yara’s cranberry lip game was also everything, too! Want to copy at home? Makeup artist Emily Cheng created the dreamy glossy lip using a bevy of tools from Chanel. She told PopSugar that she lined Yara’s lips Le Crayon Lèvres Precision Lip Definer in 98 Séduction, then mixed and applied Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Pirate and Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Erik.

She added a “light dab” of Poudre a Lèvres Lip Balm and Powder Duo in Rosso Parthenope in the center and finished with Rouge Coco Gloss Moisturizing Glossimer Caractère in 772 Epique for added depth.
