KERRY’S GOLDEN GLOBES STYLE

The How-Tos For The “Scandal” Star’s Coif

As usual gorgeous actress Kerry Washington killed it with her awesome hairstyle on the red carpet at last night’s Golden Globes Awards. “When I saw Kerry’s Dolce and Gabbana dress, I was truly inspired to go with a simple, sleek hairstyle with color,” revealed celebrity hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew about her mane inspo for Kerry’s hairstyle. “I felt like the dress was very traditional and had an elaborate design that called for a very simplistic, sleek, smoothed-out hairstyle with color and very slight body in the hair.” Here, the star stylist divulges the details on how she crafted Kerry’s cool coif…

PREP: “I shampooed Kerry’s hair with Neutrogena Anti Residue Shampoo and conditioned her hair with Neutrogena Triple Repair Deep Recovery Hair Mask. The conditioner gave Kerry’s hair a really nice shine as well as softened her hair strands,” notes Sturdivant-Drew.

STYLE: “Secondly, I blew out her damp hair with the GHD Air Elite Blow Dryer and used the GHD size 3 Ceramic Vented Radial Brush to straighten her natural hair,” reveals the hairstylist. “Then I parted her hair across the back at the nape and smoothed out her hair with the GHD Platinum Flat Iron and worked my way throughout her hair to finish off the look. I love this flat iron because of its even heat and all you need is one stroke across the hair to smooth it out.”

FINISH: “To finish off her hairstyle, I parted her hair on the left side because I thought it complemented the dress well,” shares Kerry’s mane woman. “Then I parted her hair in the back and clipped in TSD Hair Extensions Straight. In the middle, I clipped in the soft brown clip-ins; custom colored by me and finished off the hairstyle by clipping in the blonde TSD Hair Extensions around her face.”

Subtle Shimmer of color…so pretty.
