Marcus Francis created Kerry Washington‘s hot hairstyle for the American Music Awards on Sunday. Here’s how to get the look, courtesy of Marcus.
“Kerry is a chameleon with her hairstyles, able to go from sleek and modern, to effortless and sexy. She is always up for doing something new and different! The lace and color for her dress at the American Music Awards needed the hair to be up with a softness in texture but more energy than a traditional up-do. Pinning Kerry’s hair under the create a faux bob gave the look a strong silhouette for a bold color dress.
Using Rene Furterer Volumizing Mousse on damp hair, I blew out the hair using a medium size round brush. Find the side you naturally part and swoop the bangs to frame the face. With a 1/4″ curling iron wrap small sections of hair from roots to ends throughout the head. (A smaller curling iron will give the volume and longevity to the look you need). The sections of hair around the face should be wrapped on the iron away from the face. Lightly spray each section with a medium hold hairspray like L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray.
Brush out the hair with a flat paddle brush, like a Mason Pearson, to soften the curls which will also expand then for more width and volume. Take the back section of the hair and roll under toward the nape into a large pin curl and secure with large bobby pins from each side so they’re parallel with each other. Then do the same with both the left and right sides. Leaving the shorter layers around the face and on top make it more fun and youthful. Always add a few more bobby pins for a more secure foundation. Finally seal the hair with Oribe Superfine Strong Hairspray to hold the texture and shape without weighing it down.”
Love! What say you about Kerry Washington’s ‘do?
