Actress Kerry Washington had a major beauty moment at the Emmys this Sunday. Not only did she serve baby bump goals in a peek-a-boo cut out dress, she had us swooning over her voluminous curls  – a welcome switch-up from her normally sleek tresses. I have been low-key stalking her go-to stylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew‘s Instagram, so I had to reach out to get the story behind her kinky curly ‘do.

Takisha shared that the style was a no-brainer after seeing Kerry’s dress and using her baby bump as inspiration. “I instantly thought big, natural textured hair, ” she said. “I really wanted the hair to stand out. I’ve been wanting to do this natural style on how for I don’t know how long. And this was the perfect time. When you’re pregnant, what do we say? ‘Go big or bigger!’”

She also gave us step-by-step instructions recreate the look at home with a paddle brush and 20 clip-in extensions.
