Tracee Ellis Ross Credits Legendary Hollywood Actresses For Her Oscars Hairstyle

Tracee Ellis Ross is the epitome of classic style. She has followed in the footsteps of her trendsetting mother, Diana Ross, and become one to watch on the red carpet for epic beauty and hair looks.

Whether she's donning ultra-long cornrows or wearing her natural curls fully out (her "favorite style," she reveals), Ross can be counted on for Hollywood glam. 

She arrived to the 94th Annual Academy Awards and gave the red carpet a classic beauty look with an architectural twist. To accompany her signature red lip, she went for a sleek hairstyle.

Ross and her hairstylist Marcia Hamilton spoke exclusively with ELLE for more details on her 2022 Oscars look.Marcia Hamilton doesn't only help Ross get her hair red carpet;

However, she and Ross brought that creativity right to the Oscars by updating an old Hollywood silhouette with an architectural twist. Ross' low bun was inspired by legendary Hollywood actresses.

"It’s Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren and Josephine Premice with a Tracee/Marcia twist," Ross reveals. She further explains, "We wanted snatched back elegance with a smooth texture."

Mission accomplished. We want snatched back elegance, too! Hamilton happily gave us all the details on how to get the look using Ross' Pattern products in six easy steps:
