But long before her epic acceptance speech, Taraji already won on the red carpet for her stunning gown and sultry windswept bob. Her hairstyle is the work of MIZANI Global Artistic Director Cesar Ramirez, who wanted a look with movement to complement her dress for the big night.

“Taraji P. Henson’s dress was very simple and elegant – a classic old Hollywood silhouette,” he said. “I thought about pairing the look with a retro hairdo or playing off the Grecian style, but instead I thought something playful, sexy and modern. A look that speaks to my effortless aesthetic.”

Get his tips for recreating Taraji’s hairstyle below:

1. Begin with clean hair. Wash your strands with MIZANI True Textures Moisture Replenish Shampoo and follow up with MIZANI True Textures Moisture Replenish Conditioner.

2. For a heat protectant before blow-drying, apply MIZANI Thermastrength Heat Styling Serum on hair while still slightly damp.

3. Create a deep side part and apply MIZANI Defyne Wax to create texture without weighing the hair down.
