Kerry Washington always knows how to wow us and this hairstyle make us all go... OMG!!! Firstly, this bob is blunt cut, which is why the bob is able to frame her face well. The blunt cut also shows precision, but you will need to trim your hair once every 4 weeks to keep this look in shape and keep your hair healthy. The bob has been cut short, which is ideal for those with coarse hair as it is easier for you to maintain. To add a twist to this bob, Kerry has added a longer length of hair at the end, which frames her neck at the back. You will need to keep this look straight, which means it is ideal for those who have naturally straight hair, as curls and waves will not suit this style. Adding extra color to this look will be overkill, so you want to keep this bob natural in color and allows the bob cut itself to be the focal point.
Due to the bangs of this look, you want to make the focal point of your makeup to be your lips which is what Kerry is showing us.

Hair Spray, Moisturizer, and Straightener Product
Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.
Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your nose and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even middle part. A middle part is a great way to make small, round face shapes appear longer and thinner.
3. Apply Straightening Balm
Squeeze a small amount of straightening balm into your palms and then rub your hands together before smoothing the product evenly through damp hair.
4. Use a Straightening Iron
When straightening your hair, first make sure that your hair is completely dry. Then, section your hair off starting from the back/nape using a comb. Straighten your hair starting from the roots and working your way down to the ends using your comb as your guide. Make sure not to leave the straightening iron in one spot for more than 3 seconds.

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
