Last night, our favorites starlets from Hollywood’s most popular films and shows shined on the red carpet at the 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards. Custom-made gowns and expensive borrowed jewels aside, it was the beautifully bold and daring hairstyles that stole our fashion hearts. Lupita‘s hair was the talk of the Internet and we can thank celebrity hairstylist, Larry Sims, for that unforgettable do.

Follow the step-by-step “how to” with product recommendations from Larry Sims below.


How to create Lupita’s Regal Braided Crown

4. Finish with gorgeous thick braids and wrap them around the center of her hair. Secure with bobby pins
