Since Beyoncé didn’t walk the red carpet, we didn’t get a great shot of her pre-Oscars. But as the show began, BAM, she opened the 94th Annual Academy Awards with her nominated song “Be Alive.” King Richard live from tennis courts in Compton, California. To say it was epic would be an understatement. Beyoncé also looked gorgeous, with “shadow highlights,” as her colorist Riza Hazan calls her multidimensional blonde.

“For this particular look, I focused the highlights on her hairline and ends to brighten them and create the multidimensional color,” says Hazan STYLECASTER. She works with the singer to conceive each look. This special highlighting technique helps to make hair look fuller. First, she lightened the base to a toffee blonde with highlights. She then moved on to the face-framing highlights and blended them through her hair and underneath so Beyoncé’s ponytail would look cohesive.

Hazan sees this multidimensional color as a trend for spring. She especially loves “peek-a-boo highlights” that pop out when you pull your hair back. (As in Beyoncé’s ponytail.) Considering that beauty looks are bigger than ever in 2000, it makes sense that a stronger highlight is making its way back. We just hope Kelly Clarkson’s contrasting highlights from 2002 stay deep, deep in the past.

If you’re curious about the rest of Bey’s stunning look from the show, we know that she wore a custom-made Valentino dress with the coolest tennis ball-shaped bag designed by Judith Leiber. Her classically chic makeup (with the thick black cat eye) is by her longtime favorite artist, Sir John. It’s possible he used L’Oréal makeup since he’s a voice talent, or he could have used her favorite Pat McGrath Labs. Her side ponytail (with the ultra sleek part!) was created by Neal Farinah and Nakia Rachon. We’d say they all seriously killed it.
