Nicole Ari Parker Rocks A STAR-Worthy Coif…

Fans of the hit TV show Empire know actress Nicole Ari Parker is shaking things up on the show in her role as music executive “Giselle Barker” this season. But her surprise guest star appearance on music drama STAR had us doing a double take last night! The beauty reprised her role as Empire executive “Giselle Barker” in the ATL as a potential buyer for the cash-strapped Gravity Records. Looking fierce in her blonde softly waved bob, Nicole looked every inch the powerful executive she portrays. Love her look? Ask your stylist for an asymmetric bob with longer lengths left up front and your colorist for a blonde balayage effect. Finish the look by crafting loose curls in front and gently blended waves throughout.
