Viola Davis hit the red carpet at the 2021 Oscars looking like royalty in a gorgeous white lattice Alexander McQueen gown, but our eyes went straight to the pile of luscious curls on top of her head. Decked out in Forevermark diamond jewelry like a true queen, Davis completed her Oscars look with a sky-high updo reminiscent of a coronation crown, and we're in love with every angle.

Considering that Davis's nomination for best actress for her work on Ma Rainey's Black Bottom has already made history in two ways - and that her look was created by created by hairstylist Jamika Wilson, who is nominated for an Oscar award tonight - she has every reason to show up looking like movie royalty from head to toe.

To create the look, Wilson washed and conditioned Davis's hair before towel-drying it and setting the hair with Matrix's Total Results High Amplify Flexible Hold Hairspray. She then used a curling iron to achieve the gorgeous curls, tapered the sides using Matrix's Style Link Super Fixer Strong Hold Gel, and finished the look with Matrix's Total Results High Amplify Flexible Hold Hairspray. Take a closer look at Davis's entire look ahead.
