If the smoky eye (courtesy of makeup artist Andrea Tiller) didn't scream "Oscar winner," then Debose's mixie cut with feathery layers did — oh, and the shiny gold statue helps, too.
"I knew what I wanted to do with Ariana's hair the moment I saw her red Valentino pantsuit," says Takisha Sturdivant-Drew, who created the style using Maui Moisture products. "It reminded me of Halle Barry's 2002 winning Oscars look. The pantsuit was so chic and had a mix of masculine and feminine energy. It has this amazing flow to it. I knew I wanted to cut her hair to honor the classic boldness and edginess of the outfit. I decided to cut her hair down on top into this layered mixie look and leave the sides and back tapered low. I call this cut a mixie and not a pixie because it's in between both. It's not as short as a pixie but a little longer."
