How to Create Three Amazing Hairstyles from Kerry Washington

With the inarguable success of Kerry Washington’s hit TV show Scandal, this talented actress has moved further into the limelight and has brought some stunningly gorgeous hairstyles along with her. They encapsulate her natural beauty both on and off the screen. From soft, romantic curls to chic, trendy fringe, Kerry can do it all – and you can too with a few styling tips and some hair extensions, such as our Volumizers. Here are three styles that epitomize some of the best hair trends for Fall 2013.

Messy Waves

This fall, a little messiness goes a long way. Sleek curls are made interesting with different sized curls and a lot of volume. Hair extensions are a great way to add some oomph to your hair – or to get the look of a longer style while your hair is short. If you are applying the extensions yourself with clip-in extensions, be sure to layer your natural hair over the extensions to pump up the volume and to hide the clips. Match the color, texture, and length to your natural hair to create the perfect blend. Use a maximum volume mousse before you blow dry your hair to create the most lift possible, and curl sections of both extensions and your natural hair. Shake your hair out when you’re finished to add natural shape to your hair.

Asymmetrical Up-Do

This stunning look was perfect for Kerry’s presence on the red carpet. A classy, asymmetrical up-do is a hot look for fall, encapsulating gorgeous volume and the unexpected. The best thing about an asymmetrical up-do is that it shouldn’t be perfect. Experiment with your natural hair and virgin Indian extensions to find the right shape and tilt for your face. Pull up hair, and secure it in place with pins, adding curls as you go to give texture. Crisscross two pins to hold hair sections securely.

Sexy Fringe

Fringe is in again, and this power-house hair style is both sexy and sophisticated. Again, choose hair extensions that match this ultra-straight texture, and be sure your fringed bangs are just at the right length. The right extensions like our full lace wigs can add extra length or a slight lift, though you don’t want to go too voluminous with this look so try the straight full lace wig that's currently on sale. Make sure your natural hair is healthy, shiny, and free of split ends. If necessary, have a deep conditioning treatment in order to rock this look to its fullest potential.
