Matrix / Vernon Francois

Vernon Francois for Matrix created a chic updo for Lupita Nyong’o at the 2020 Critics' Choice Awards. Francois shared tips for achieving the look:


1. Lock in moisture before heat styling with the versatile Matrix Total Results Miracle Creator Multi-Tasking Hair Treatment.

2. A flexible hairspray such as the Matrix Total Results High Amplify Flexible Hold Hairspray is imperative for a red carpet debut. It is an all day humidity resistant root lifter and a must-have for maintaining body throughout the day and night. It easily washes out and leaves no build-up which is important for kinky hair types!
