Get Hollywood Hair:
Grow Out Your Cut Gracefully
Taraji P. Henson
Growing out a short hairstyle can be especially challenging for some black women because their strands tend to be drier and break more easily, says Los Angeles hairstylist Larry Sims. That's why keeping your hair healthy and hydrated is so important, adds Dante Blandshaw, Taraji P. Henson's stylist. The best way to protect tresses from the damaging effects of daily heat styling, says Blandshaw, is by getting a weave. While Henson was growing out her hair, she used weaves to experiment with many different looks.

Henson wanted a new style that was "chic and elegant," says stylist Dante Blandshaw.
At the Van Cleef & Arpels flagship store in New York City, Blake Lively celebrated the redesign in a black bias Marchesa slip dress with pastel floral embroidery, Chantilly lace cut-outs and a tulle flounce skirt. Van Cleef & Arpels jewels and black Gucci heels completed her look.
