By  Get The Look: Taraji P. Henson’s Modern Throwback WaveHype Hair

Not since Carrie Bradshaw on “Sex In City” has an on-screen fashionista caused such a stir. From her infamous fur scene to the red bottoms she slips her feet into, women all over are rushing to the stores to buy what Cookie was wearing last episode.

Taraji P. Henson aka “Cookie Lyon” has graced the cover of multiple magazines (including our very own) since the premiere of television series Empire. The newest is the cover of Modern Luxury’s CS magazine where Henson is all glammed up in a champagne gown and a modern twist on the throwback wave and curl set.

Not since Carrie Bradshaw on “Sex In City” has an on-screen fashionista caused such a stir. From her infamous fur scene to the red bottoms she slips her feet into, women all over are rushing to the stores to buy what Cookie was wearing last episode.

With her hair being my favorite part, this cover shows Taraji in a classic style with poise and grace. Let me show you how to get this look at home!

Begin with parting hair into three sections. First, part a mohawk section down the middle of your head and clip hair out of the way. Then, clip the two side sections. Set curl each section of hair with a 3/4- to 1-inch curling iron – depending on the length of your hair. Clip curls to cool.

After curls are cooled, remove clips carefully not to disturb pattern. Use a small wire brush to brush curls down and together. Use the same brush to make an s-shaped wave pattern by laying middle finger flat horizontally and dragging the brush to create wave near cheek bone. Use duck bill clips to clip the wave into place.

Spray firm holding spray on the wave and sit under hooded or bonnet dryer for 10-15 minutes. Carefully remove clips and arrange curls. And there you have it!

*Makeup tip – With this style a red lip is everything!
