How to Get Kerry Washington's Smooth Curls

Get Kerry Washington's Soft and Spiraled Hairstyle

Kerry Washington was as pretty as could be at the recent reception for her forthcoming movie, We the Peeples. Smooth and spiraled curls like hers aren't too difficult to create, but following a few guidelines will make your life easier. For tips, keep reading.

Start with a volumizing shampoo. Moisturizing shampoos and conditioners tend to weigh hair down. Washing your hair with a volumizing shampoo like Modern Organic Products Glisten Shampoo will leave your hair light, full, and ready for curls.

Use protection. Before doing any kind of heat styling, you should be sure to always use a heat protectant. This helps combat breakage and protect against singed strands. Try Nexxus Thermal Volume Heat Protecting Mousse ($11) before blow-drying and Redken Smooth Down Heat Glide Smoother ($16) before curling.

Opt for a ceramic curling iron. Ceramic irons like the CHI Air Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron ($60) distribute heat more evenly, resulting in a soft and longer-lasting curl. Try sectioning hair into smaller sections starting at the nape of your neck. Curling your hair in smaller sections gives the curls better hold.

Spray on some shine. Finish the look with a light shine spray like PhytoSpecific Extreme Shine Spray ($26) for a high gloss.
