Kerry’s Pretty Party Coif

This is how to rock the modern bob…


We’re still sorting through all the fabulous style moves from the Academy Awards and we couldn’t help but turn the spotlight on gorgeous Kerry Washington’s flawless coif spotted at the Vanity Fair party. “When I saw Kerry in her Michael Kors dress, I felt her hair should be sleek and short,” details celebrity hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew. “The dress was simple, yet very sexy. By keeping her hair short and sleek, it complemented the dress in such an effortless, chic way. Simplicity is best at times.” We couldn’t agree more! Here, Kerry’s go-to hair pro shares the steps for crafting the sensational bob:

Step 1. I shampooed Kerry’s hair with Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo to remove any buildup from her hair. Then I moisturized her hair with the Neutrogena Triple Repair Deep Recovery Hair Mask to soften her locks and add the beautiful shine to her hair.

Step 2. I blow-dried her hair with a comb attachment to smooth her strands out easily and without putting any tension on her hair.

Step 3. I teased the roots around the front, back and middle. Then, I clipped in TSD Hair Spring Wave Custom Color Extensions to highlight her face.

Step 4. I took medium sections of her hair and flat ironed it to create a sleek, chic bob hairstyle.

Step 5. To finish off the hairstyle, I parted her hair on the left side and left some hair laying on the right side of her face. Also, I cut the left side a little shorter and left the right side a little longer.
