Kerry Washington is no stranger to a good hair switch-up. On any given day, we can catch the Scandal actress slaying red carpets in everything from kinky curls and milk braids to gothic waves and edgy ponytails. Her appearance at the 2017 Producers Guild Award was no exception as she wowed with a chin-grazing bob.

“Kerry Washington is not afraid of change when it comes to her hair!,” her hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew shared on Instagram. We caught up with Takisha to get the story behind her new chopped ‘do.

She said it was Kerry’s vampy Rodarte dress that inspired the sleek look. “Her dress, with it being low cut in the front and the way it shaped her shoulders, inspired the side part with a blunt bob cut. And, I felt like a soft reddish brown would look great”!

Takisha first prepped Kerry’s natural hair with a deep conditioning hair mask and then used a blow dryer “to smooth her hair out and give it that sleek look with some slight volume.” She didn’t color Kerry’s own hair, though. Instead, she custom colored extensions from her collection and “clipped them in all around her hair and then cut to give her ends that blunt look,” said Takisha.

We love it! The bob has maintained its place as a classic hair trend and wecan’t wait to see how our faves to continue to slay the look.
