“Hair by my momma” – Viola Davis
 

Never in a million years would we have known the beauty that was under the many wigs of Viola Davis. Everywhere we looked she was rocking her natural hair, but she was a true head turner at the 84th Annual Academy Awards. Not only did she continue to wear her beautiful natural hair, but she colored it, and it was fabulous!

You may not be able to be lucky enough to get your mom to style your hair like Viola, but even if you can’t here’s a few tips to achieve the look

Color

Opt for a red shade like Dark and Lovely Vivacious Red. You can purchase for $4.99 at http://www.sallybeauty.com/

To enhance hair’s natural curl pattern and provide light hold, apply SheaMoisture’s Curl Enhancing Smoothie ($9.99 at Walgreens.com), then seal in moisture, reduce frizz and add brilliant sheen by applying SheaMoisture’s Raw Shea Reconstructive Elixir ($9.99 at Walgreens.com) throughout hair.

And that’s it! It’s a very simple look for someone with short natural hair or for someone that wants to feel glam after the big chop!
