Last night Taraji P. Henson’s playful hair took center stage at the Golden Globes. When she hit the red carpet we couldn’t stop staring. We caught up with MIZANI Global Artistic Director Cesar Ramirez, who created her look to get the details on the styling. Here, he breaks down the step-by-step instructions to get her look.

“Taraji’s dress was very simple and elegant—a classic old Hollywood silhouette,” said MIZANI Global Artistic Director Cesar Ramirez. “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 esthetic.”

Step 1: Cesar started by cleansing Taraji’s hair with MIZANI True Textures Moisture Replenish Shampoo and MIZANI True Textures Moisture Replenish Conditioner. They’re perfect for blow drying curly hair straight or leaving curly hair natural.

Step 2: On damp hair, MIZANI Thermastrength Heat Styling Serum was applied for anti-breakage and heat protection. Once blown straight and dry, Cesar created a deep side part.

Step 3: Next, Cesar used MIZANI Defyne Wax to add a semi-wet texture with separation and movement, finished with MIZANI HRM Humidity Resistant Mist for hold and shine.
