Celebrity Hairstylist Larry Sims Explains Lupita Nyong’o’s Golden Globes Look

lupita-nyongo-golden-globes-hype-hairThe highlight of last night’s (Jan. 12) Golden Globe Awards was, hands down, Lupita Nyong’o. If the night was a public nod to her debut performance as a slave master’s mistress in 12 Years A Slave then her breathtaking, red Ralph Lauren cape dress and complimentary spiked do’ were her freedom party.

All eyes are trained on the Kenyan actress and, with the help of celebrity hairstylist Larry Sims, her hair will continue to keep people gabbing.

“We decided we wanted to do something more fashion-forward,” Sims told Pret-a-Reporter. “Everyone is always used to seeing her with a crop. The lines of the dress are so simple and chic; we wanted to add a side-part to complement the lines.”

According to Pret, Sims used products from his own line, as well as Go Pro Curls, and for shine göt2b’s Oil-licious Calm & Shine Styling Oil.
