Celebrity hairstylist Lacy Redway worked with Amandla Stenberg for the Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology Costume Institute Gala on Monday, May 2nd in New York, NY.


“Amandla is probably the coolest teenager that I know. So it was only right that I kept her look cool, fresh, and youthful very much like her personality.”
“On wet hair we added Devacurl DevaCare Arc AnGel gel and diffuse her curls with my Harry Josh Pro blowdryer and a defuser. To maximize volume and lift, I had Amandla tilt her head forward while I defused. I also added silver pincurl clips to the roots to help with volume. Reframe from using your fingers on the curls if you want your curls really defined and not frizzy. Once her hair was completely dry, I used a hair pick to pull out the roots.
Then I brushed her hairline back using a little bit of Shea Moisture Yucca and Plantain Firm Hold Gel Cream before doubling up on our hair accessories from LELET NY. We used their Glossy Ball Chain Wide headband and Squared Pearl Headband’s. Finished off with a little Oribe Anti humidity spray to keep curls in tact.”
