When Regina King took the stage at the 2024 Oscars last night to present the Best Supporting Actress award to Da’Vine Joy Randolph, we reveled in her beautiful essence and striking natural tresses. The Academy Award winner was breathtaking in a red/orange, custom Atelier Versace gown, which she paired with a beautiful afro-textured hairdo that had us all in awe.

We love it when our favorite celebrities honor their textured hair at Hollywood events. In an industry that doesn’t celebrate Blackness enough, these types of beauty statements are necessary and powerful. King’s hairstyle was the cherry on top of her scarlet-colored, stunning look, adding the right amount of class and chicness.

King’s hairdo was achieved using Shark Beauty’s Shark® SpeedStyle™. Her stylist, Araxi Lindsey, aimed to highlight the Boyz n the Hood alum’s natural afro texture by applying the ultra-fast drying technology of this blow-dryer to the actress’s unraveled, two-strand twists.

She then double-strand twisted King’s hair. After untwisting it, Lindsey used the DefrizzFast Diffuser attachment to dry it on medium heat until fully dry.

Once King’s hair was dry, Lindsey styled the Hollywood Director’s mane into a pulled back bun adorned by curls hanging underneath. The stylist added a damp mist to soften the twists. She finished off the look by diffusing the hair using a cool setting.
