Get the Grammy Look: Esperanza Spalding’s Awesome Afro

There’s no question that our award for best hair of the night goes to jazz star Esperanza Spalding! Her gorgeous afro has always been her signature look, and we loved how she rocked it last night. For her acceptance speech for Best New Artist, Esperanza sculpted her hair into an updo, and then loosened it up in the press room.

Feeling inspired to go natural, too? Follow this easy styling routine:

  1. Shampoo hair once a week at most.
  2. When hair is wet, apply a conditioning oil treatment (like Mizani Supreme Oil) then brush it through from roots to ends.
  3. Scrunch and twist hair into curls, then let air dry.
  4. At night, twist your hair tightly and wrap a silk scarf around your head to prevent tangles and frizz.

Such a simple regimen, and such sexy results!
