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.”
Ted Gibson Gives Sandra Oh Bangs
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.
