Hairstyles How To: Create Taylor Schilling's Sleek, Straight Strands by Ted Gibson

Celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson styled actress Taylor Schilling’s hair for her recent appearance on the David Letterman Show. Below, Gibson shares how to get this sleek, sexy look!

"Feel pretty- why not! That's exactly how I feel about this look I created for Taylor Schilling tonight for The Late Show.
"To achieve her look, I started with dry hair and brushed it out with a flat brush. Gibson girls - if you want your hair to be smooth and silky, use a flat brush to minimize volume and to ensure that there is no bend in the hair. Next I sprayed Leonor Greyl Condition Naturelle - Heat-Protective Styling Spray on her roots and applied Leonor Greyl’s Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice on her ends for added texture. Then, taking 2 inch sections I blew her hair flat and gave her a deep side part. I love this part on her because as you can see it opens up her beautiful face.
"I then flat ironed her hair. When you flat iron you always want to make sure the hair is 100% dry. If you don't you risk frying your hair and that is grounds for a slap on the hand! Trust me, you don't want that from me!
"I finished with L’Oreal’s Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hair Spray to keep her hair behind her ears because I wanted to show off the great neckline of her Calvin Klein A line dress."
