Her hairstylist, Larry Sims, started the glam look by applying Smooth 'N Shine Go Pro Curls Curl-Licious Mist to refresh and reactivate the actress' natural curls.

To ensure the dramatic side part stayed in place throughout the long night, Sims sprayed got2b 2sexy Voluptuous Volume Hairspray on the actress' hair.
