Celebrity Inspiration: Kerry Washington
Get It: "Kerry has a medium-length razor cut that's shorter in the back and longer to the front," said Takisha Sturdivant-Drew, a celebrity stylist who actually created this look. "I cut the back shorter so the hair would fall the way it did on her neck. Then I added shorter layers to the sides and front." She notes that when you cut hair with a razor versus scissors, it falls differently while slightly thinning out the hair.
Style It: "I used my BaByliss Pro Flat Iron ($40) to get the hair bone straight, then brushed it out with the Tangle Teezer ($12) to keep all the hairs in place," Sturdivant-Drew said. Follow up with a styling paste, such as R+Co's Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste ($29), for a bit of texture.
Who It Flatters Most: Sturdivant-Drew recommends this look for oval and round face shapes, noting that it also works well on curly and coarse hair.
