Oscar Night Beauty: Taraji P. Henson
Taraji P. Henson captivated my attention not only with an absolutely fabulous strapless white Cavalli gown (and that amazing statement necklace-- love!), but i cannot get over how great her hair looked-- her hairstylist, Dante Blandshaw, gave her an amazing variation of her bob for Oscar night. with high shine and just the right amount of volume, this is s great style to try if you have a similar cut yourself.
to get her look: prep hair with Aveda Brilliant Damage Control to protect from breakage and thermal damage. blowdry hair straight with a paddle brush, then add a dime-size amount of Universal Styling Creme for added shine. flat iron first, then use 1.5" inch and 2" barrel irons to give volume at the roots and bend at the ends- but don't over curl!- to accentuate the layers. slightly curl the front to create a soft, side-swept bang for added height and fullness, then finish by combing with a wide-tooth comb and lock in the style with a lightweight hairspray (try Aveda Air Control Hair Spray).
