WHO: Actress Angela Bassett
HAIR BY: Celebrity Hairstylist Randy Stodghill for Olivia Garden
INSPIRATION: We wanted to create a modern-day bang look for Angela and thought the perfect way to do it was with sleek bangs and a minimal curl.
TIPS/TECHNIQUE: I started off this look by blow drying the hair with the Olivia Garden SuperHP Hair Dryer in a free hand motion until the hair is nearly dry. This took minimal time and effort due to the blow dryer's high wattage and ultra lightweight design. The dryer locks in moisture and eliminates frizz, creating the best base for the hair. To finish off the blow dry I went in with the Olivia Garden Ceramic + ion Speed XL Hairbrush to create perfect body and curls to the hair. This brush is great for tight retention that allows me to style the hair exactly how I would like to. Next, I used the Olivia Garden Titanium + ion 1.25” Curling Iron to add some extra tight curls, varying the texture. This curling iron has phenomenal dual heaters that make sure each curl is evenly spiraled and fabulous. Next, I smoothed out her bangs with the Olivia Garden Titanium + ion Flat Iron to create that sleek and modern look we were going for. To finish, I brushed the hair with the Olivia Garden Fingerbrush, giving it a more relaxed look.
