Actress Ruth Negga as “Mildred Loving” in the film Loving.

 We have no doubt actress Ruth Negga will own the red carpet at tonight’s Academy Awards.

As a nominee in the “Actress In A Leading Role” category for her stunning role in the film Loving, we are on the edge of our seats to see if she’ll take home that little golden statuette. Throughout awards season, Ruth glowed beautifully flaunting her chic, short style—a cut that celebrity hairstylist Kenneth Walker had to change in order to help transform the actress for her role as “Mildred Loving.” “Ruth came to the set with her own cute little high-fashion haircut and, of course, I had to change it to fit the [time] period,” shared Walker, who served as Head of Hair Department for the film. The mane man kept Ruth’s hair healthy during the Loving filming by “consistently oiling and deep conditioning her hair,” he shared with SBH. “That was the key to our success.”
