Taraji P. Henson just won the Oscars red carpet! The ‘Hidden Figures’ star looked absolutely fabulous with soft curls and one gorgeous smokey eye at the Oscars on Feb. 26. Taraji’s look was flawless from head to toe!
Taraji P. Henson stepped out onto the red carpet at the Oscars and absolutely slayed. She had her bob styled in soft curls that made her Oscars look ten times sexier. Tymothe Wallace for Dove Hair styled Taraji’s red carpet hair. Taraji’s makeup was even more on point. Her navy smokey eye and sparkling eye shadow popped with her navy gown. Couple her hair and makeup with that super sexy custom Alberta Ferretti dress, and Taraji knocked her Oscars look out of the park.
Here’s how Tymothe crafted Taraji’s red carpet look:
1. I prepped hair using Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner ($4.99) which alleviates any scalp dryness and itch but keeps hair soft, nourished and manageable.
2. Once hair was cleansed, I sprayed Dove Absolute Curls Leave-In Detangler ($5.99) on 2-inch sections of hair before blowing them dry with my Dyson blowdryer.
3. I then emulsified 2-3 pumps of Dove Absolute Curls Supreme Crème Serum ($5.99) in my hands and distributed it evenly throughout her hair before using my jumbo FHI Heat barrel curling iron to create pin curls which I then set with velcro rollers to lock-in the curl memory.
4. After curls were set, I took them down and used my trusty Mason Pearson to brush through the roller set, then used my fingers to set the look in place before liberally spraying with Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray ($3.99).
Taraji has been looking all kinds of fierce this awards show season. She stunned in an embellished purple gown at the SAG Awards. Her pretty purple eye makeup complimented her dress so perfectly. Taraji’s sheek bob was also on point. At the Grammys, Taraji rocked a hot mauve lip and slicked-back hair.
The actress has been taking risks with her beauty looks, and they’ve paid off each and every time. There’s no doubt about it — Taraji’s Oscars look will go down in history as one of the best ever!
This past year has truly been the year of Taraji. In addition to the success of Hidden Figures, which won the SAG Award for Best Ensemble, Taraji’s in the midst of Empire’s third season. The show returns on March 22, and it’s going to be intense. In a crazy trailer that aired during the Super Bowl, Taraji’s character, Cookie Lyon, beats Lucious with a baseball bat!
