There’s no denying that Oscar winner Regina King slayed the red carpet at the 93rd Academy Awards. From the sequin and crystal embroidery on the hem of her custom duchess satin Louis Vuitton gown; to the Forevermark diamonds gracing her ears, wrists, and fingers; to the crown of her classic bob, King was a vision. We call can’t get Nicolas Ghesquiere to design a garment for us, but we can get King’s hairstyle, which was coiffed by Larry Sims for the event. Let’s get the look …

Sims said in a press release that he was inspired by the attention-grabbing shoulder detail of King’s gown.

"We wanted to go with something sleek, modern, and clean that wouldn’t compete with the structure and craftsmanship or the dress,” said Sims. “We also wanted to show off Regina’s beautiful neckline."

Of course when it came to selecting products to style King’s tresses, Sims opted for Flawless by Gabrielle Union, the hair care brand he co-founded with the Hollywood heavyweight.
