Angela Bassett continues to defy everything there is about aging! The actress heated up the purple carpet in a red hot retro-glam look that had us swooning. We’re not sure what we loved more: a custom caped Antonio Grimaldi pantsuit with a midriff-baring scalloped top or her voluminous textured tresses.

Either way, we were more than happy “The big burst of curls” was the perfect complement to the off-shoulder look, her hairstylist Randy Stodghill told Hype Hair. “We were feeling an homage to big hair of the ’70s.”

He also shared deets on how he coiffed the half-pompadour look using curl-friendly Ouidad products. After conditioning hair with Ouidad Curl Immersion No-Lather Coconut Cream Cleansing Conditioner ($36), he used Ouidad Whipped Curls Daily Conditioner & Styling Primer ($26) and Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel ($26) to lock in the curl texture.

Next, diffuse dry to maintain curl definition and add volume. He then softly parted hair along the temple and pinned up the top section of hair into a pompadour for added height.

Once set, he scrunched finished with Ouidad Stylutions Revive & Shine Rejuvenating Dry Oil Mist ($28) for added moisture and clean sheen.
