Get Kerry Washington Beautiful

Kerry Washington never disappoints us with her gorgeous hairstyles but last night this mama-to-be really wowed us! We are in love with this super easy, half pulled back, relaxed yet glamorous hair do! Here’s a quick and easy step-by-step to get her look at home:

Step 1: Apply a Heat Protector

After applying a heat protector, like FHI’s hot sauce, blow dry hair with a vent brush until you have removed up to 90% of the moisture in the hair.

Step 2: Section Hair

Section the hair into horizontal sections and use a medium round brush to dry the hair completely. Your focus while drying should be on getting volume at the roots and a light curl at the end by using the cool shot button on your dryer to set the hair.

Step 3: Criss Cross

Once hair is dry lightly pull the sides of your hair back, one side at a time and pin with a criss cross at the back.

Step 4: More Volume?

Finally, if you’re looking for more volume on top. Use a tail comb and gently insert it right above your pins and pull up lightly.

Step 5: Finish it Off

Curl or wave the freely hanging section of your hair as you like and top with a lightweight finishing spray.
