Cynthia Erivo is living her best short cut color life. Just a couple of weeks ago, we were ogling over her icy-grey swag. And last night, she gave us blonde bleached ambition with platinum waves at the 2020 SAG Awards.

Coiffed by celeb hairstylist and Dove hair expert Coree Moreno, the actress rocked a brushed finger-wave fade and bleached brows to complement a custom bold pink and red Schiaparelli custom ball gown styled by Jason Bolden.

“This look is classic Cynthia!,” Coree tells Hype Hair. “We knew we wanted to keep it simple, but it’s actually quite detailed and intricate up close.”

For starters, Coree bleached Cynthia’s brows to a near flesh-tone color (no that wasn’t just makeup) and then tszujed up her hair using a quarter-sized amount of Dove’s new Amplified Textures Twist-In Moisture Shaping Butter Cream ($6.99) and seven to 10 pumps of the new Amplified Textures Shine & Moisture Finishing Gel ($6.99) to create finger waves with a fine-tooth comb.

While still wet, he spritzed on Dove Style+Care Micro Mist Extra Hold Hairspray ($4.89) to set for a firm hold.

Beauty is all in the deets and this look was definitely a winner for Harriet actress.
