By Lauren Salapatek | 10/09/2012 2:05:00 PM


Winning the 2012 People's Choice Award for Favorite New TV Comedy, CBS's 2 Broke Girls is a fan favorite starring the double duty beauty team of actresses Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs.  Here is the scoop straight from Celebrity stylist Pixie Schwartz on how you can re-create their signature looks in four easy steps. (White Sands Hair Care is the product they use behind-the-scenes.)

Max Black (played by Kat Dennings) STEPS FOR MAX BLACK (played by Kat Dennings):

STEP 1: Apply a curl enhancing medium hold mousse to damp hair at roots and work through to ends—diffusing without a product can create frizz.

STEP 2: Divide hair into sections and spray on White Sands Liquid Texture Firm Hold Thermal Styling Spray focusing first on the bottom layers. As you style, you will work up by section until finally reaching the top of the head.

STEP 3: Take a one-inch section and begin to curl by placing the iron 3-5 inches away from the scalp. Roll iron under and towards scalp—most of hair will be hanging out of curling iron when you begin this step.

Tip: Alternate the direction of the curl as you work your way through each section.

STEP 4: Alternate the direction of the curl as you work your way through each section.


Caroline Channing (played by Beth Behrs) STEPS FOR CAROLINE CHANNING (played by Beth Behrs):

STEP 1: A good styling product is key to the perfect blowout. Divide combed hair into sections and secure with clips or ponytail holders. Then apply Thermal Styling Spray.

Tip: Securing one portion above the other helps manage the blowout. Leave out a section to start with.

STEP 2: Dry using a paddle or large Mason Pearson Brush.

Tip: Stretch the hair as you dry. It sounds crazy, but when you're done, the tips won't flip.

STEP 3: When hair is completely dry, apply a small amount of White Sands Orchids Oil to the ends.

STEP 4: Finish with hairspray.
