Florence Pugh, 28, has been killing it all awards season and last night was no exception. The Oppenheimer star walked the red carpet in a stunning Del Core gown with a voluminous blowout that deserves an award. Luckily, we got the scoop on all the haircare products—including the Virtue Volumizing Mousse ($40)—used for her Oscars look.

Styled by celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel, the look features a deep side part, soft piecey waves and a voluminous blowout. According to Abergel, his inspiration drew from a "modern day bombshell hairstyle with a carefree live-in glamorous vibe."

The hairstylist also wanted to pay homage to Oppenheimer's 13 nominations (of which they won seven last night, FYI) and give a special nod to iconic '90s hairdos. Keep reading for the entire breakdown:

Abergel prepped her hair using the Virtue Damage Reverse Serum ($60) and applied it from root to end. The product is said to repair and protect hair against damage, as well as prevent dryness and breakage. He notes, "[This serum] is the foundation for any look."

Then, the hairstylist added the Virtue Volumizing Mousse ($40) that's designed to define and strengthen strands. He applied some on her roots before using the Kristin Ess Ionic Professional Blow Dryer ($100; $67) and a round brush to create a soft bounce. He focused mainly on each small section at a time to ensure the entire look was completely dried and ready for the next step.

Once Pugh's hair was fully dried, he curled her strands using the Kristin Ess Ceramic 1 1/4-Inch Curling Iron ($60) at the crown and the Kristin Ess Soft Bend 2-Inch Curling Iron ($64) at the temple and nape of the neck. After curling these specific areas, the hairstylist pinned each section to let it cool and set in place.

After a few minutes, Abergel removed the clips and spritzed on some Virtue Texturizing Spray ($40) at the roots, which define each section and create the soft piecey look. He completed the blowout by adding a dose of Virtue Healing Oil ($45) for a high-shine finish worthy of the Oscars.
