With retro looks abound at the 2020 Golden Globes, Cynthia Erivo put her stamp on the evening with icey ’60s version of her signature cropped cut. The Harriet star shined in the fresh new hue colored and cut by Coree Moreno.

“For Cynthia’s look, the concept was an elevated, more feminine version of the 1960s combover,” shared Coree. “Playing off the sexy details of her Thom Browne dress we wanted to bring a more androgynous contrast with a chrome pixie.”

To get the custom-iced chrome color, he double-process colored her hair before styling her ’60s mod hair. The secret “to perfect color is having a well-moisturized base,” shared Coree, who used Dove’s new Amplified Textures collection to syle Cynthia’s cropped cut.

“I love how this line was made specifically for textured hair, so the moisturizing ingredients were perfect to hydrate Cynthia’s coils post process,” said Coree.

For Cynthia, he used the new collection’s Moisture Spa Recovery Mask, letting it sit on her hair for 10 minutes. After rinsing out, he applied the Leave-In Conditioner and then applied a palm-sized mound of Dove Style + Care Volume & Fullness Mousse ($4.88) to condition and comb and slick down the hair. Coree repeated the mousse application to further build structure and hold.

Once set, he detailed the hairline and neck area with Dove Amplified Textures Shine & Moisture Finishing Gel ($6.99) and set with Dove Style + Care Micro Mist Extra Hold Hairspray ($4.89).

She completed the look with a black-and-white detailed sequinned gown styled by Jason Bolden and face beat by Terrell Mullin using Armani Beauty.
