13 Oscars Hairstyles That Will Go Down In History
Amandla Stenberg, 2019

Amandla Stenberg was one of the first celebs to walk the red carpet — and for the rest of the night, we just couldn’t shake just how painfully cool her hybridized hairstyle looked. “I️ told Vernon François I️ wanted fingerwaves with cornrows,” she said of the style on Instagram. “He turned that out in two hours. A true artíst.”

For his part, François told Vogue,“We wanted to bring out the glamour and sophistication of the #1920s, but also pay homage to tradition with her texture,” he said. “But when I was researching braids in that sort of [finger-waved shape], I couldn’t find any. So we were on a mission to create it.”
