While many celebrities attending the Golden Globe Awards this year have gone for somewhat low-key hair and makeup looks, Angela Bassett is one of the exceptions. The 62-year-old actor stepped out wearing an ultra-long, elaborate braid and a deep eggplant smoky eye to match her gorgeous dark purple gown. Despite everything still being different this year due to the pandemic, she still looks as glamorous as ever.
As for her next-level braid, it was done by her go-to hairstylist, Randy Stodghill, who’s already shared several photos of Bassett in her full award show attire on his Instagram. “MS. ANGELA💜,” his caption reads. While Stodghill didn’t reveal the specific order of products he used, he did tag hair-care brand Phyto Specific Paris and Phyto Paris USA.
At first glance, it might look like your regular plait, but if you look closer, you can see that Stodghill created an ornate design with a tiny, tighter braid woven throughout the main one to give it a super-unique and multi-dimensional feel. Per his Instagram Story, he used Phyto’s Baobab Oil to finish off the style and add extra shine and hydration to Bassett’s hair.
As for her makeup, she went for a monochromatic jewel-toned look, consisting of shimmery purple shadow and a soft lilac lip color to match her gown. Makeup artist D’Andre Michael shared several stunning close-ups of the star’s beat on his Instagram, and wow. Just wow. He also included a breakdown of every single product he used, too.
