At last night's Critics' Choice Awards, Killing Eve star (and winner of Best Actress in a Drama Series) Sandra Oh showed off a new cut with bangs, thanks to celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson. "Curly haired girls like Sandra can sometimes be afraid of getting bangs because bangs can look a bit askew if they aren’t cut right," Gibson says. "For curly hair, bangs cannot be cut blunt and straight across. Instead, they have to be cut on dry hair, and a soft technique must be used to add movement and remove weight from curly hair.”
Here, Gibson breaks down how he seamlessly styled the look, which you can recreate on curly-haired clients with bangs.
1. Apply Shooting Star Texture Meringue on Sandra’s dry hair, applying the meringue only from mid length and ends.
2. Blow-dry hair for a few minutes to enhance the natural texture and add shine.
3. Use a combination of medium and small barrel curling irons over the entire head. Wrap hair around the barrel, but leave the ends out for a more tousled and undone look.
