For her Today appearance Kristen looked glamorous with her sleek, shiny rich chocolate strands styled into a chic sophisticated style.

Hair Style:

Kristin's lush swept off-the-hairline style is super flattering to her face shape working in harmony with her one-shoulder silver gown.

If you have at least shoulder-length hair, you can easily achieve her classy look which combines smoothly blown out hair with lush volume built throughout the top and crown.

Hot irons are utilized along the perimeter to give the ends a slight curve and bend.

For hair which is naturally straight, hot rollers or a wet set with adhesive rollers dried under a hood unit will create more defined texture along the edges.

Hair Secrets:

The biggest secret to Kristin's well groomed silky locks are regular deep conditioning treatments combined with regular trims to keep ends in tip top shape.

Quick Hairstyling Tips:

Kristin's hair style is ideal for anyone with shoulder length or longer tresses which are medium in thickness with some natural waves or bend.

Kristin's hairstyle is best achieved on freshly cleansed hair properly prepped with styling products to give the hair appropriate workability.

Follow the styling tips below:

1. Cleanse hair with products designed specifically for your hair's type, texture, condition and/or special needs such as colored hair. Add rinse-out conditioner and final cold water rinse.

2. Towel blot. Rake leave-in conditioning and appropriate styling cocktail through strands. Work styling cocktail through strands starting at the hairline and working down through the ends. Apply volume enhancing spray to roots for lots of lift.

Note: If your hair is prone to frizzing apply a defrisant product or mix with your other styling products. Many celebrities are big fans of Phytodefrisant.

3. Dry with a large 100% boar bristle round brush and blow dryer with concentrator attachment. If you prefer to create tousled separation rather than sleek volume use a long finger diffuser instead.

4. Add lots of volume by flipping head upside down while drying. Blow dry until tresses are dry throughout the base but still damp on the ends.

Flip head back to finish ends. Use a 2-inch round boar bristle brush. Turn hair slightly under at the ends. Blow hair back at temples. Direct strands away from the face briefly to create additional lift and shape.

5. Finish hair styling process with light holding spray. Swipe with light shine serum to capture random fly-a-ways and add bounce shimmer.

The key to the sexy glamour of Kristin's hair is lush root volume, shimmering shine and loose waves throughout the edges. Avoid too much product or styling to keep hair soft.

Hairstyling Notes & Options

To add more volume after hair is completely dry separate hair into 2-inch sections. Spray base of hair with finishing spray. Roll section towards back of head on large self adhesive roller. Roll entire head in 2-inch sections down the middle of the head all the way to the nape of the neck.

Roll side hair downwards so strands will be curled under. Allow rollers to set for a minimum of 30-45 minutes.

Remove rollers using fingers to shake the hair free. Avoid disturbing new texture with comb or brush. Slightly back comb throughout crown and adjacent to hairline to add more volume.
