While we didn’t see as many of our faves on this year’s Oscars red carpet last night (Feb. 28), those who did attend brought their usual slay game. Scandal‘s Kerry Washington who said she attended “to make sure there’s institutional change so that we never have a year like this again” was definitely a red carpet winner.

We love how she edged up the Oscars’ staple black and white color combo with a warrior-meets-princess inspired atelier Versace dress and voluminous teased ponytail.

Her hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew took to Instagram to share how she created Kerry’s edgy ‘do using Neutrogena products.

Get The Look

Step 1:
Use Neutrogena’s Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask. Takisha said this is Kerry’s “favorite conditioner.”

Step 2:
Shen then used her “favorite tools” to prep Kerry’s hair, including a paddle brush and ghd professional air hairdryer. She added, “I’m loving ghd hair‘s platinum flat iron. If you want healthy hair, this is the tool to use.” She also recommended to use “just enough heat! But not an overkill to damage your strands.”

Step 3:
She added length using clips of @TSD Hair Extensions into a ponytail, created a “spring wave” and teased for height.

Are you feeling Kerry Washington’s punky ‘do?
